I've never used RnR before so I'm not sure what to expect with it. I've heard both good things and bad things from different people so it'll be interesting to see how it works.

Ive used reserve n ride once. It was amazing as there was hardly anyone in the park but there was still queues of up to 15 minutes so the time on RNR said 0 mins. We just reserved, waited a couple of seconds then we were in.

So i should be coming to this just need to book which will be soon and the fact that R&R is on is great i wonder if they'll do it on the mazes?
1 question is that i have a premium MAP do i need to pre book to guarantee entry? Also my dad is taking me there and he'll be on park but not with the group should he pre book with his annual pass awell as chances are he'll go to staines and come back at 10:30 (am). Just don't want it to be at full capacity and im in the park and hes not. Do they do re entrance stamps?
Looking forward to this and btw i'll be going in my first scare maze so could be interesting.....

The £1 fee is optional, bit to guarantee entry you will need to book. For a small amount I would play safe, especially if your dad is coming on park later!

IMPORTANT:
I have a standard annual pass and my friend has a premium, do I or both need to book tickets through the official Thorpe website?

I would advise booking via the Thorpe Park website to Guarantee entry. Yes there is a cost, £5 for standard and £1 for premium. You can just turn up, but that can NOT guarantee entry

Standard passholders will need to book tickets in advance. Whilst the option is there for premium passholders to reserve their tickets, as you'll be some of the first guests into the park that day it will not be at capacity at that point.

Sorry for the double post but can I just ask, as we will be arriving before opening time, can I click collect at attraction for collection method as it seems to be the only option I can choose.

On the day of the event itself you won't really have any need to pre-book via the website as we will be getting access to the park before the general public. But to answer your question, yes the "collect at attraction" option is the correct one to choose.

I'm a little confused, if we have booked with tt for sms surely we don't need to do anything else apart from turn up with our maps

That's right Steve.

The £1 booking fee for Premium Passholders is optional and is only really needed if you're arriving later in the day.

Seeing as we will be the first to enter the park there isn't really any need to pre-book on the website.

Standard passholders are subject to a £5 admission fee during Fright Nights, which can be booked online in advance.
