VR Ride Experience

Derren Brown’s Ghost Train: Rise of the Demon is a truly immersive experience, leading thrill seekers through a series of chilling train carriages. Bringing together live action, VR experience and a hologram of Derren Brown himself, this scary ride is unlike any classic ghost train.

Climb aboard the Victorian train, suspended 3m in the air, and journey through time. Riders find themselves in the “real world”: an uncannily familiar scene on the London Underground. Unlike some virtual reality coasters, this ride experience was designed with VR at its core. Without the need for any G-force or high-speeds, this dark ride will make you scream whilst barely moving!

Sinister surprises lie in every detail of this unique theme park ride, so you’ll have to come and see for yourself!

Derren Brown’s Ghost Train Reviews

The effect is truly terrifying, and once again it’s because of the elision between the physical realm and the virtual one.

The new live actor element improves guest experience. Length of ride to queue ratio is still brilliant! Technology used is incredibly clever. 8.2/10

Theme Park Incorporated

True to form, Derren Brown's Ghost Train is indeed excellent [...] Derren Brown's Ghost Train is the best execution of VR at a Theme Park we've experienced to date, and it's presented and themed to a very high standard indeed.

Total Thorpe Park

Scientifically proven to get hearts beating at more than 180bpm [...] the new VR content on the Ghost Train is as immersive as it is creative. [...] If you love a good scare and your blood pumping, look no further.

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.
