Roll up! Roll Up! Fright Nights returns to Thorpe Park with a brand new horror maze experience, The Big Top, a carnival brimming with sordid characters including adult babies, clowns, mime artists and a jack-in-the-box.

New for 2015, guests are invited to join the show as they twist their way through the brand new scare maze set in an abandoned carnival on the island’s Amity Beach. Prepare for screams at the carnival, experiences include a Fortune Tellers Wagon, a mirror maze brimming with chuckling clowns and mime artists, a creepy fun house, a torture chamber, game stalls with a twist, a circus scare room and the clown’s dressing room. The Carnival owners, the Figaro Bros, will greet you along your journey. Guests quickly discover this is no longer a place of laughter. Will they make it through the final encore of the Carnival show?

Thorpe Park has announced there will be two brand new scare experiences at Fright Nights in 2015, with the end of The Director and the introduction of The Ringleader.

Get ready for the ultimate Halloween at Thorpe Park on the 9th-11th, 16th-18th and 23rd-31st October and 1st November 2015 as The Big Top and Containment join Fright Nights.

New for 2015 at Thorpe Park, Island Beats brings the best in UK music together with world-class rides. The Vamps, Ella Eyre, Rizzle Kicks, Professor Green and Conor Maynard will headline the music event from Monday 6 July - Sunday 30 August.

Thorpe Park in partnership with Universal Music Global and Showcase Live present Island Beats over 8 weeks.

Thorpe Park has launched the world’s first I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Maze inspired by the hit TV show. Here is our exclusive interview with Andrew Walker, the Operations Director at Thorpe Park, about the brand new family attraction for 2015.

Six months in planning, the new attraction has been fitted with the latest technology and special effects to breathe animatronic life into the jungle. Features include multi-sensory ‘leg ticklers’ that simulate the feeling of being covered head-to-toe in bothersome bugs, a vibrating bridge walkway which will leave you feeling unsteady on your feet and moving trees and walls.

Thorpe Park has applied for planning permission to build a 2438sqm building to house a unique indoor fully themed atttraction ready to open for Summer 2016.

The new attraction will be located on the site of the Arena and Chief Ranger’s Carousel, between Nemesis Inferno and X.

It is rumoured that the attraction will be based on a major intellectual property such as the BBC's Doctor Who, whom Merlin Entertainments, the owners of Thorpe Park, have recently worked with on Cbeebies Land at Alton Towers.
