Checked with the Merlin Annual Pass Twitter team, and they've said that details for this event are still to be released. Although, they didn't initially know of the event...
So, assuming Thorpe didn't forget about it and are now rushing to get something sorted, it should still be on. But if you're booking hotels specifically for this event, I would suggest trying to a get a more concrete confirmation from them first.

Be warned there can be a very very long line for ticketing in the morning. Having a pre-purchased print-at-home ticket from Thorpe directly, can at times save you over an hour of queuing to get in.

Assuming the ticket they're offering doesn't say it's an Advance Ticket, then the price they quote will be the same as the price at the station on the day. Keep in mind that if you buy online, you will still need to collect your actual tickets at the station.
You may be able to find a cheaper rate at a site called The Train Line, but you will likely then be forced to use a specific train at a specific time.

Now, my question, not a TP regular, living so close to towers, the last time I went was the summer holidays, the queues were horrendous, bad enough for me to buy a fast pass... Going again this Saturday, can any TP regulars advise on what the queue times might be like on a Saturday outside the holidays?
