At Thorpe Park, there's no shortage of rides that will get your heart racing. Great dining options and facilities, meanwhile, give you ample chance to catch your breath.
The Saw Ride is a roller coaster that will have you hurtling down into the depths, while on the Walking Dead Ride, you'll navigate to the safety of a bunker on foot, avoiding zombies and other terrifying hazards. If you're not into being spooked, check out the Angry Birds 4D Experience, a cute and amusing attraction for all ages.
On the Colossus roller coaster, you'll loop round and round no less than 10 times, while Stealth shoots you from 0 to 80mph in under two seconds. There are plenty of water rides too: Depth Charge is a 40-metre water slide, while Rumba Rapids will have you twisting along a white water river.
Take a pit stop after a heart-pounding few hours on the rides. Amity Fish and Chips and Fin's Bar and Grill are just two of the options for a satisfying meal. Or grab a quick drink at the Coffee Shack. There are also shops where you can buy themed souvenirs, such as the Saw Store, and more general outlets including the Megastore.
There are plenty of great destinations nearby that you can visit when staying near Thorpe Park.
These two historic towns in Surrey are equally worth a visit. Woking is recognisable as the setting for the iconic War of the Worlds. Check out the alien statue in town and visit the Big Apple for laser tag, bowling and more. Guildford has a castle set on beautiful grounds and is an excellent shopping hub.
This attractive London suburb is famous for its stadium, which hosts Rugby Union matches. You can also visit the World Rugby Museum or stately homes such as Marble Hill House and Ham House. The sprawling Richmond Park is also close by.
A real treat for lovers of the great outdoors, this is one of the best gateways to the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Head to Ashtead Common and see the nature reserve. Norbury Park is an excellent place for country walks, and Leatherhead Museum has exhibits on the town's past, from Anglo-Saxon to Victorian times.
