Photo TR: first time to Thorpe Park


Recommended Posts

Hello

During my 3 week long language stay in Cambridge, UK, I decided to visit Thorpe Park on one day. I've choosen sunday the 2nd of October to visit.

I got up at 5 o'clock in the morning and left with the bike at 6 and headed towards the train station. There I took the train to London, which took the train 1 hour and 10 minutes (and it felt like a Vekoma train ). After changing stations in London I continued to Staines, where the Bus took me to the Park. I arrived around 9:10am there and got in line to enter the park at 9:30am. When it opened I went directly to X and I got to ride it in the first train of the day. Then I went in the back of the park to Stealth and rode it twice, due it's line was just around 5 minutes. Then I headed over to Nemesis Inferno and later SAW and the other coasters. The crowds were pretty okay for a sunny Sunday with a temperature of around 60*F.

Here are all rides I rode and the MAXIMUM wait time of the day from those rides.

Stealth: 3x (25 min)

Nemesis Inferno: 1x (30 min)

Colossus: 2x (35 min)

SAW: 2x (45 min)

The Swarm: 2x (25 min)

X: 1x (35 min)

Storm Surge: 1x (40 min)

Flying Fish: 1x (10 min)

Detonator: 3x (10 min)

Ghost Train: 0x (100 min)

Note: I didn't went on the Ghost Train and all those flatrides because my stomach is too weak for that and I hate scary attractions...

Overall it was a pretty fun day and it was worth it.

 

I made a Vlog at Thorpe Park, here it is:

What a beauty

I love this drop tower, even if it is just 100ft tall, because you're flying in your seat during the drop!

Ahh, I got dizzy on those heartline rolls

Nice ride, but where are the g-forces?

Storm Surge was fun

Let's ride it

It's a pretty intense coaster, but wayy to short... but I still like it

And over the big bridge

Well, this sign said 50 mins, but it was only 30 mins, which was alright

And here comes the train

IMG_3230.thumb.JPG.5a4880c39bc6b4fc4283001006112f6d.JPG

After Kärnan and Fluch von Novgorod I expected it to be kinda rough, but it was pretty smooth, except a bit of rattle on one part of the ride.

Looks good but still, no thanks

IMG_3233.thumb.JPG.3d031018d7fd82d2452d9ad11669ff44.JPG

And remember, either leave your smartphone in the station or put it in a zip pocket, otherwise this could be your phone!!!

 

I hope you liked this photo trip report and thank you for reading :)

And last but not least, The Swarm

IMG_3241.thumb.JPG.46cc55cf078c50f649ce27f55d9593ae.JPG

Great B&M Winger, but a bit short of a ride.

For Nemesis Inferno, you absolutely have to ride it later on in the day, it gets a lot faster and more intense! Cannot believe you didn't ride Rush though, your really missing out! Glad you liked Detanator the UK's not so premier drop tower (Jolly Roger at Pleasurewood Hills - basically a taller version of this with different seating!)

Definitely ride it late in the day. It's best if you're on the last train of the night, front row, carrying a car door, and yelling at disabled people.

 

Seriously, though, this is a great trip report. Love the photos.

No joke, I saw something really similar to that at BGT last Friday minus the car door. Florida is weird.

Really? Does this make such a big difference? Well I rode it around 10:30am in the front row. I will ride it later in the day when I'm back there sometime in the future with a car door in the front row and not forgetting to yell at disabled people

^ You can either get a really good or really bad ride on Nemesis Inferno. I rode it on annual pass night first and in second row and it was fun but pretty force-less. For the first time ever I rested my arms on the arm rests instead of holding on or putting my hands in the air. HOWEVER, back row, in the rain, is something very special. Very forceful and the loop .

 

By the way, if you were too scared to ride the ghost train you should not be, it is not scary at all.

True that^

but honestly if your coming from another country your wasting your time queuing for DBGT, its absolute garbage unless you in a big group, and even then its more funny than scary.

Yes, it is bad. I am still going to try it again next year to see it is it improved.
