My friend is going to go to Thorpe on April 3rd which is a Monday in the Easter school holidays. How busy will it be? Also what fastrack should he get out of swarm, inferno, colossus or saw, if he is doing the fastrack package? Many thanks
With it being in the Easter holidays (which I believe that lies in the London break as well) Thorpe Park will almost definitely be busy, but with moderate crowds at the very minimum. It'll be even busier depending on the weather as well, so take that into consideration if you are pre-booking Fastrack (e.g. Hydration package - £12 etc). Personally (judging from previous years and opening day) I'd expect the main coasters to be on at least 60 minutes, going all the way up to the maximum of 180 minutes. Then the 'Thrill" flats being probably between 35-50 minutes. DBGT on the usual 120 minutes at the least, but most likely higher due to the "Rise Of The Demon" addition - causing more people to ride that due to the "new" nature, and fairly dodgy reliability
and hopefully it isn't #unavaliable for you guys! The water rides will be quiet if it's cold busy if its hot - but Storm Surge will be 'busy' but not if that makes sense, once again due to the bad capacity on it!!
Personally, I'd recommend getting the Full Throttle Fastrack, and then purchasing one-shot FastTrack's for IAC and DBGT (which I believe are available, but don't quote me on that
) and if its hot buy the Hydration package. I'd also say don't buy Fastrack till your there, and try to judge the crowd level when your arrive (Ticket queues, Car Park traffic etc). But if he want to do all the coasters at least once the Full Throttle package is well worth the money and time it saves!
Hope you have a good day, and look forward to hearing about it and seeing some pictures!!
