In a post-apocalyptic world, Thorpe Park is under attack from a flying alien race. Step onto Swarm Island to witness the devastation. From an abandoned church station, you’ll burst through a surviving billboard, fly under a crashed plane wing, narrowly escape the rotating blades of an abandoned helicopter and skim past an explosive fire engine.

Join the invasion to see for yourself!

Experience speeds of almost 100km/h as you ride on the wings of The Swarm. Take your seat either side of the track and feel the force of 4.5G, with nothing above or below you but air!

The Swarm Reviews

From start to finish the ride was dynamic and delightful [...] the theming is very good, as is everything else about the ride.
