  • We visited as our four year old loves angry birds and wanted to visit angry birds land. It took an hour to get in to the theme park. We were served by Harley who in between shovelling food into his fa...  more »
  • On arrival at around 11am now like other places subject to a half hearted bag security check which took 25 mins to get through. We had a good group discount as there was over 20 of us, so entry was £3...  more »

  • Good for people of all ages as there are many children's rides for young children as well as the big roller coasters which anybody can enjoy. The flat rides here are also some of the best that I have been on. My favourite ride is definitely Saw which never has that long of a queue. The only criticism that I have is that Colossus has been running on only one train the past few times I have been here so the queue takes a fairly long time despite the queue being relatively short.
  • We did have ultimate fast track tickets which certainly made a huge difference. The wait times were about an hour but for us we were on and off each ride in just minutes and this was on a warm Sunday. I don't think the rides are worth an hours wait but in our case I found them all really fun, especially Stealth! The park itself was nice and clean with friendly staff and plenty of eating and drinking places. Get the refillable soft drink bottles as this is much better value for money, especially if you share one like me and my husband did. Absolutely fantastic, but this is probably based on the fact we had fast track.
  • Had some free tickets for today so thought we give it a shot, was pretty busy, and some of the rides had long waits, but the Thorpe Park App helped with that because it tells you the waiting times, loved the Stealth, only had a 15 minutes wait, the Storm Surge seemed to have to longest wait, 40 minutes we queued, and to be honest, it wasn't really worth the wait, it's so slow getting people on and off, and I got soaking wet feet because the rubber rings are full of water, but it's a water ride, so can't really complain, X seemed to be really quiet, we went on this 3 times, seems under rated, it's a great little coaster in the dark with music and disco lights. Also the Rumba Rapids were fun with very short waiting times. Tidal Wave gets you totally soaked, and the Angry Birds 4D experience is quite good. Overall apart from the rain, it's a good day out for all the family.
  • It's a very good theme park but overpriced compared to others. Had great fun but with queue times around an hour, I didn't get to go on more than 5 rides, even though I arrived when it opened and left an hour after closing time. Also it happened twice that I queued for an attraction that, after it was close to being my turn, started "experiencing technical difficulties". After leaving and rejoining the queue later when it's open again, the same thing happens. But overall had a great time anyway.
  • Had a great day. Very last minute and unplanned. Bought an annual pass as it works out cheaper. We also bout fast track passes for the ultimate 5 and my favourite was The Swarm. You will get soaked on the Tidal Wave so be prepared!
