I have been to Thorpe Park twice. The first time I was quickly arm twisted into going – whilst inside my head, my inner diva was clutching her tiara and hiding behind a vintage Chanel armchair – the second time around she could be found donning her biggest Jackie-O sunglasses with her chin tilted upwards chanting “you had a great time last time, you had a great time last time” whilst still itching to dive behind her now upgraded chair (same tiara!)
But go I did (on both occasions) and had an absolute blast I might add. I mean, for example ^ that is a “haha…this is great fun…I can’t wait for it to be our turn…haha…OH MY GOD WHAT ARE WE DOING!?!” look. But get on the ride I did and shriek I did and laugh I most certainly did too – so all in all – a great trip
We went on the new Derren Brown ride, as you can see ^ I was the epitome of calm. It’s a virtual reality ride and it’s truly excellent, minds blown – I won’t give anything away – because if you know too much ahead of time it’ll just ruin it for you – but do go on it!
Himself (thankfully) gave me an “actual rollercoaster rides” break, so we went down the rapids next
which I really enjoyed, especially as we managed to get a raft to ourselves (the joy of going to Thorpe Park off peak!)
During both of my visits, my hands down, absolute favourite ride was Tidal Wave. It does exactly what it says on the tin and is a total joy – A JOY!! (unless you’re the angry lady who gave out to her boyfriend whilst sitting in the front row because she didn’t want to get her hair wet)
Spoiler Alert – they got ABSOLUTELY SOAKED! As did we, picture evidence below
Thorpe Park is a bit of a pain to get to – but it’s well worth the day out and if you like theme parks, you’ll love this place!
