Thorpe Park News

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.

Thorpe Park has launched the world’s first I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Maze inspired by the hit TV show. We went to the launch event on Thursday 26th March 2015 to try out the brand new family attraction, here is our review and a selection of photos.

400 lucky Annual Pass holders, VIPs and the media were treated to Bush Tucker Burgers with a selection of critter sides and jungle treats, all 7 roller coasters and several other rides open in the dark in addition to experiencing the attraction. 

A whole new season of thrills kicks-off as Thorpe Park officially opens its gates on Thursday 12 March 2015 and to celebrate a new generation of thrillseekers taking on their first coaster, the park is offering 1,000 free tickets on Saturday 14 March and Sunday 15 March for children who have reached the magic height of 1.4m.

The first 500 children who measure between 1.4m and 1.5m plus a guest on both Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 March will receive free admission. Don’t forget the moment, each lucky guest that claims their free tickets will receive a photo voucher to get their free My First Coaster picture frame of their first time on one of the park's five flagship coasters.

Thorpe Park is to launch the world’s first I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Maze inspired by the hit TV show. Opening on Friday 27 March 2015 in partnership with ITV Studios, the new family attraction will be home to creepy ‘critters’ and jungle trials.

In rainforest temperature mist, camp mates who enter the Maze will be greeted by Ant and Dec who will give them a recorded briefing. They will then have to navigate through tunnels, crawly corridors and dark caves that will make you squawk! Campers should keep their eyes peeled for Bush Tucker Trials where they will unearth the prized gold stars.
