Urgh, closed season sucks. No coasters for us to ride and so many months to go until the park is back open! But this year we’ve got an action plan we thought we’d share with you – we’ve come up with four ways to beat the closed season blues!



Nothing puts a smile on our face like going back through the photos and memories from the season just past. A great way to do this is to scroll back through your Instagram or Facebook page and see all the shenanigans you got up to throughout the season. You’re bound to stumble over something you completely forgot happened!



It’s never too early to start planning your next trip! Take a look at your busy schedule for next year and start figuring out when you want to visit the park. The 2018 calendar is going up any day now so keep a close eye, take note and start working on those 2018 visits.


Keep an eye out for updates

The closed season is always a mysterious time, but always fun to listen out for tidbits and rumours of what’s to come in the 2018 season. And plus, who doesn’t love a good rumour mill? It keeps the fires going and keeps us guessing well into the winter months. OK, we already technically know what’s coming, but it’s fun for you guys!


Start a countdown

As soon as you know when your first visit of 2018 is going to be, put an X on your calendar and start a countdown. Soon enough all those little days you’ve ticked off will build up and you’ll be walking through the turnstiles again in no time.


What tips do you have for beating the closed season blues? Share them with us in the comments and we can’t wait to welcome you back to the Island in 2018. In the meantime, we can get through these winter months together!

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!
