It’s been many years since I last visited Thorpe Park, it looks like it’s changed out of sight since then and I can’t wait to go back this summer with my thrill seeking youngsters – I just hope I can keep up!
In fact I’m quietly relieved that they don’t quite reach the 1.4m height restriction for the BIG 5 but can still go on plenty of thrilling rides to gently prepare Mummy. Being only just over 1.5m myself I quietly hope that by the time they’re tall enough they may also be old enough to go alone! Looking at the mark, so enthusiastically made on their height chart and knowing the rate at which they both seem to be growing I do fear this may be wishful thinking.
So it’s time to introduce the children and get re-accustomed with my favourite childhood theme park and this summer seems a great time to do it with lots of great events and offers.
FREE EXTRA THRILLS AND SPILLS AS SUN SCREAM RETURNS TO THORPE PARK
Wednesday August 23 to Sunday September 1 2013
As Sun SCREAM returns to THORPE PARK this summer, thrill seekers of all ages can enjoy 10 days – including TWO weekends – of FREE family fun extras, including daytime silent discos, adrenaline-fuelled stunts, plus freestyle hip-hop and beatbox performances and workshops. What’s more, families and groups can now stay at the Park’s new on-site accommodation, The Crash Pad, and get TWO days of Park tickets included in the price of an overnight stay!
BUY A ONE-DAY THORPE PARK TICKET AND GET FREE ENTRY UNTIL NOVEMBER
Thrill-seekers can’t afford to miss this amazing new offer from THORPE PARK. A summer of riding the rollercoasters for the price of one day’s ticket!
The superb deal is also a gift for families who want to entertain the kids during the school holidays.
Anyone buying a full-price £43.20 adult ticket for one day’s entry gets a pass giving unlimited access to the Park for the rest of the 2013 season – until November 4. And not only that, if you pay just £10 more, you can have a pass for a WHOLE YEAR – worth £85!
There can’t be a better theme park offer this summer and with the new on site accommodation, The Crash Pad you don’t even need to go home to sleep!
At least if it all gets too much I can take them over to NEPTUNE’S BEACH for a little chill by the pool whilst they splash on the slides, although I think it’s far more likely we’ll be getting splashed elsewhere..!
