Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

Thu May 21, 2015 8:57 pm

Basically like the Alton Towers quick questions topic, but for Thorpe Park!

Ask any quick questions about thorpe park in this topic, but please try and answer the questions instead of turning it into a discussion over one question, like the general discussion topic

Feel free to ask any questions, I have one

EDIT: What days are summer nights on and how many are there (weeks of it)?

I'm thinking of buying the standard Thorpe Park annual pass. I reckon that whilst I might make one AT trip it wouldn't justify the extra spend of the MAP. My question is, with regards to the summer nights and fright nights and all that stuff, how does one go about purchasing those tickets if you don't have a premium pass, and how much do they cost?

If you have either a MAP or a TP pass, details on how to buy tickets will be released soon (Hopefully). If you don't have either of those, early bird tickets are available now.

Are summer nights tickets still avalible any dates? If there is can anyone link me to it as every time I go on the website it links to 10th July and says event ended, because it's past 10th July. Can anyone find the next few dates? For premium annual passes.

I haven't seen anything on Thorpes instagram page, usually they try to big up the events week by week but not seen anything this week... is it definitely still going?

Hi all,

How do fastracks bought in advance work please? I've only purchased in the park before and had the set times, but if you purchase in advance how do you know what times you have, does it tell you?

We're going on Sunday but some people are travelling down in the morning so we aren't sure what time we'll get to the park, worried if we purchase in advance that we won't be there when the first slot begins. Also worried they will sell out if we don't buy ahead.

Any advice please?

Thanks in advance!

Even on busy days, the park has been very quiet this year, and fastrack probably isn't necessary. If you have the money to burn then go ahead, it will save you some time, but I would probably leave it until the day and see how things turn out.

I disagree, Thorpe Park has been VERY BUSY this year, on most Saturdays queues average between 45 mins up to 90 mins, and can exceed 120 mins on some rides (SAW, Storm Surge and Colossos).

Thanks for the comments so far, I think we will get the Fastrack. Does anyone know when you get the time slots, is it when you collect the tickets on the day and therefore based on when you arrive at the park?

I don’t believe Thorpe themselves offer a digipass, but the MAP digipass (which covers the 4 Merlin UK theme parks) can be used.

The Digipass was available last June when I visited, me and friends used it. Unsure if it is available this season or not. Hope this helps
