Derren Brown's Ghost Train: Rise of the Demon - Service Updates

  • Tuesday February 28th 2017
  • Jordan

Derren Brown’s Ghost Train: Rise of the Demon will be departing from Thorpe Junction very shortly. So, here’s what we can tell you for now:

Derren Brown’s Ghost Train: Rise of the Demon is going to be deeper, darker and more intense. But what does that mean exactly?


Derren Brown's Ghost Train Rise of the Demon Service Update


The eagle eyed among you will have noticed that this time around we’re going even deeper into the chilling depths of the unknown, both mentally AND physically. We won’t go into too much detail (as we said, don’t want to ruin the fun for you!) but expect to enter realms unexplored in Derren Brown’s Ghost Train as your train is diverted down an entirely different route…


Yep, we heard you. Derren Brown’s Ghost Train just wasn’t scary enough. Looks like we underestimated just how much fear you guys can handle! We’ve taken a look at where the fear can be dialled up a notch for Rise of the Demon and, well, let’s just say we think your thirst for fear will be quite satisfied! Nerve shattering tension is on route.

More Intense

We always want to bring you the most cutting edge tech we can in our new rides, and part of this means pioneering some of the ride technology ourselves here at the park! Parts of what make DBGT such a unique and incredible experience were actually developed during the creation of the attraction and had never been seen before at any theme park in the world. A big plus of that is that we are able to update this when newer technology becomes available, meaning a more intense experience for you.

We hope that’s answered a few of your questions for now. In the meantime, continue to join in the fun of guessing what exactly is coming in Rise of the Demon and revel in the anticipation of the unknown (that’s all part of the fun isn’t it?!) And please, keep sending us your questions as we love to know what you think.

Until next time Islanders,

Latest information regarding Coronavirus

Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Thorpe Park Resort until further notice.

Have a short break booked when the Resort is closed?
Following the latest Government guidelines (issued on 10th May), and given the continued uncertainty about when we will be able to reopen, we are now asking guests with short breaks booked between 1st June up to and including 3rd July to move your booking free of charge (subject to availability). Please visit the Manage My Booking site to rearrange your booking.

Have a Park ticket pre-booked when the Resort is closed?
If you have booked a ticket to visit Thorpe Park Resort during the closure period your ticket will be valid for use on any date during the 2020 season (excluding FRIGHT NIGHTS and pre-advertised closed dates as outlined on our website). Further information for guests with pre-booked and promotional tickets will be published on our website prior to opening.

We are determined to be here for you, your friends and your family offering otherworldly thrills and helping you create fantastic memories as we have done for decades and will continue to do for many more.

We’ll be sharing our full plans soon. In the meantime, please keep smiling, clapping and supporting each other. See you soon!
