The Walking Dead The Ride Rollercoaster Exterior & Entrance


In case you have been living under a rock or in your Zombie apocalypse shelter, we finally shared with you our Headline act for The Year of The Walking Dead... The Walking Dead: The Ride.

We’re really excited to tell you all about all the screams and scares that await you in this terrifying and relentless fight for survival. You will be pleased to know, we’re not holding anything back; it’s going to be one of the most petrifying experiences ever.

You will be in an area overrun by the dead and there’s just one goal; survive. Can you make it to the sanctuary of the Safe Zone avoiding the gruesome walkers?

John Burton, the chief creator of the new rollercoaster, has revealed that for those of you who are brave enough, you will be immersed in an experience complete with state-of-the-art special effects, and a replica of the iconic Watch Tower. He has gone so far as to say that you will be facing a ride which is, “15 out of 10 on the scare scale.”

We’re both terrified and excited in equal measure, and this definitely rounds off the year of unmissable events here on the Island with The Walking Dead: The Ride at the heart of our series of unmissable events which includes:

The Walking Dead Living Nightmare Extreme (the live action maze at its most terrifying) available only for May Half Term (25th May – 3rd June)

Summer Lates until 10pm (Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 26th July – 1st September)

Zombie Hunt – an extreme battle for survival in woodland on the outskirts of the island for the six weeks of summer (21st July – 3rd September)

FRIGHT NIGHTS (5th October – 31st October)– returns with a The Walking Dead theme

We know you’re all chomping at the bit to join us in the battle for the Island and the best way to experience this is by nabbing yourself a THORPE PARK Resort Annual Pass for only £49!

Remember, those who ride, survive!

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!
