Thorpe Park is a theme park that is focussed big thrill rides. There is a separate area for young children to enjoy themselves, but the main attractions are the themed rollercoasters and water rides.
The biggest crowd-puller is the SAW maze and SAW ride, based on the horror films, and featuring a 1000ft vertical drop. The Stealth rollercoaster reaches 80mph in under 2 seconds, and the Colossus is the UK's only quadruple rollercoaster, which means extremely tight corkscrew loops. Flying Fish is a much tamer rollercoaster, which serves as a good introduction to the theme park for children, or those of a nervous disposition!
Aside from rollercoasters, there are thrill rides. Time Voyagers is a 4D adventure movie, which uses air, water, vibrations, sound and 3D effects to bring the movie to life. Water rides include a log flume, the fast-paced Rumba Rapids, and Depth Charge; a huge multi-lane water slide, allowing visitors to race their friends and family to the bottom.
There are also lots of rides for young children, mainly located in the Octopus Garden. The Canada Creek Railway provides a relaxing and scenic ride, and there is a beach area exclusively for young families. Other attractions include shows and musical productions, a carousel and gentle water rides.
