Islanders!

X No Way Out Ride Exhibition Logo

Since November you’ve probably been watching endless clips on YouTube, refreshing our website, been glued to our Twitter page and listening to the IMAscore THORPE PARK Resort soundtrack.  Well your time is NOW. The wait is almost over!

This weekend is our X-citing Annual Pass Pre-opening day! The first of many unmissable events on the Island Like No Other!

So what’s going on? Well, if you’re a pass holder and have been lucky enough to get a ticket, Sunday will be your first chance to experience all of our thrilling rides and attractions. X-ercise your coaster muscles by conquering The Swarm, get launched 205ft in the air in 1.9 seconds on the X-hilarating Stealth and feel the X-treme heat of Nemesis Inferno (celebrating its 15th Birthday this year!)

Younger theme park fans can grab their adrenaline apprenticeship as they X-plore rides such as the X-traordinary Flying Fish, the gravity defying Zodiac and magic carpet ride Quantum. Then fly into the X-cellent Angry Birds Land, home to the world’s first Angry Birds 4D Experience, the 100ft  drop tower ride Detonator: Bomb’s Away and King Pig’s Wild Hog Dodgems.

You may have noticed we’ve gone a little bit X-treme on the letter X…well that’s because the main event of this Sunday’s Annual Pass preview is eXpo:\2018, our love letter to the pyramid of dreams that was X.

You can join us in the Lake View Marquee from 11 am to celebrate the iconic X (or X:\ No Way Out for those who enjoyed it pre-2013 in its ’backwards rollercoaster in the dark’ days!) As well as this, you’ll get a sneak peek at what’s to come in 2018 with The Walking Dead: The Ride with an exclusive talk from Lead Creative John Burton.

We’ll have guest speakers talking all about the history of X and their experiences with the Vekoma rollercoaster as we give the THORPE PARK Resort stalwart a fitting farewell. PLUS don’t forget to grab your limited edition pop badge to mark the occasion, available on a first come first served basis.

So what are you waiting for? Come and join us on Sunday 18th March for this exciting Annual Passholder Day! Remember the final wave of tickets will be released at 10:00 am on Wednesday 14th March here

If you can’t make it, remember you can still join us from Friday 23rd March when we re-open with a year of unmissable events. And of course you can pay for a day and come back all year with a THORPE PARK Resort Annual Pass for JUST £49.

Until next time…we’ll meet you at the Safe Zone.

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!
