We are proud to partner with Nimbus Disability/Access Card, one of the UK's largest disability accreditation organisations, who now handle all Ride Access Pass registrations.

Ride Restrictions

Ride Accessibility

Our rides and attractions have a variety of restrictions which are put in place to ensure our guest’s safety.

Each ride has their own set of restrictions which must be adhered to at all times, some of which are due to ride restraints, forces or sometimes due to additional requirements if the ride has stopped and guests are required to exit before reaching the station.

We offer a Ride Access Pass to guests who may find it difficult or cannot stand for long periods of time either due to a physical disability or a learning/emotional impairment.

Theme Park facilities


All toilets across the Resort have access for guests with wheelchairs or additional needs and can be found on the Thorpe Park App

We are also proud to have ‘Changing Places’ on the Theme Park located in The Dome. This facility includes a hoist, adult changing bed, height adjustable sink, shower and toilet as well as plenty of floor space to allow room for two helpers.

We also have Accessible Toilets located in the following areas: Admissions, next to THE SWARM ride, next to The Megastore in Amity and next to Lumber Jump in Old Town.

Please note: Access to the changing facilities will require a RADAR key which, if you don’t have your own, can be collected on loan at Island Help & Information. A refundable deposit of £10 will be required to hire one for the day. 

Accessibility Kiosk

The Accessibility Kiosk located to the right of the turnstiles (after security checks, and is open from 9:15am-12pm for collection of Ride Access Passes, wheelchairs, ear defenders, and Radar Keys.

Island Help & Information

Located outside The Dome, Island Help & Information should be your first point of call if you require any further assistance on the day. The team can offer advice on Resort access and restrictions, height measuring, wheelchair access for collection of a Ride Access Pass (after 1pm), wheelchair hire, RADAR key hire, lost property and further information on available facilities across the Resort. 

First Aid

Located outside the Dome next to Island Help & Information, we have a range of facilities including cold storage for medicines at our Medical Centre as well as facilities for those who may require medical attention during their visit.

Hire Options

Wheelchair Hire

A limited number of wheelchairs are available for hire from the Accessibility Kiosk on a first come, first served basis. A £50 refundable deposit is required. 

Wheelchairs are subject to availability so we would suggest that guests who need a wheelchair to travel around the Theme Park bring their own for ease and certainty. Please take extra care when using them and speak to a staff member in Island Help & Information for further information.

Mobility Scooter Hire

We do not offer mobility scooter hire on Resort.

Pushchairs and Buggy Hire

A limited amount of Buggies are available from The Island Shop in the Dome. Our buggies rental is £10 for a single buggy, £15 for a double buggy and a refundable deposit of £10 is required.  Prices are subject to change. Buggies must be returned, at the very latest, 30 minutes prior to the advertised Park closing time to guarantee that the deposit is returned.

Buggies cannot be taken through any queue lines and therefore must be left outside the entrance of the rides, keeping the entry point clear.

Ear Defenders

Ear defenders are available to hire for a £20 refundable deposit from Guest Services or the Accessibility Kiosk.
