Possibly, but it could be guiding people to not visit during peak weekends. It would be nice if they did return though :)

As reported by SouthParks Facebook; Thorpe Park have added provisional 2019 opening dates to the Thorpe Breaks website, suggesting that the theme park will reopen for the 2019 season on Friday 29th March.

They also indicate that Fright Nights will run Thursday 3rd October – Sunday 6th October, Thursday 10th October – Sunday 13th October, and Thursday 17th October – Thursday 31st October.

The theme park is once again due to close on off-peak weekdays in May and September, although the number of closed days is reduced compared to 2018, and on non-Fright Nights dates during October.


Really hope this stays the same, and Alton follow suit with the Mondays... Monday is the only guarenteed day off we get.

Only thing to remember is that in September, Thorpe couldn't get the opening dates correct for the following couple of weeks. :roll:

Thorpe have posted this image of Nemesis Inferno’s old lift hill chain on their Instagram , which is currently in the process of being replaced.

I've just seen that was suggested that they sell links. I personally think they would have a market for it. All it needs is a clean and it is ready for sale.

Looking at the other side of it, it is good to see that we are all ready to go for another season! It is an underated ride!

Some interesting looking symbols have been added to this year's map, shown in the Winter Update 6 video.

Plus most of Old Town and The Jungle is covered, bar this brief glimpse.

Looks like the symbols are just the 5 coaster logos. Can't see anything too special in them. Interesting that they've gone and stopped showing Old Town on there now, but thinking about it it does make a good amount of sense if it is out of use.

I hope those little symbols will be used throughout the park as they look very modern (collosus definitely needed some updating) I have to say it's odd to overlay them in that video though. I am however excited to see what is happening to old town. Find out more March 29th!
Please! No more IP's Thorpe! I'm begging you!

This week's Thorpe Park Winter Update talks about Derren Brown's Ghost Train and the process of getting it ready each day.

Interestingly, the video flickers at the start to reference last week's video. So, did they decide they wanted to add a flicker, get the wrong part number, but decide it was good enough and just release it? Or is there something in last week's video that they're trying to point out? Or is it just the Thorpe usual: put something out and say aren't we cool we made you all get excited about nothing, again?

Edit: After noticing they can't spell Ghost Train correctly in the subtitles, I'm going to assume it's the first option for the flicker text. :roll:

Thorpe Park will be targeting a younger audience as part of new additions for 2019, with a call for actors to fill character roles for a younger audience, appearing on the Merlin jobs page.

We are scouting for talented actors and performers to join our Entertainments Team for fixed term opportunities throughout 2019.

This is a job like no other where you will be playing various scripted and improvised characters, with both family friendly and scare-actor roles available. From giving our guests the ride of their life on Derren Brown’s Ghost Train and The Walking Dead: The Ride, to entertaining our younger guests in our NEW for 2019 Character offering, the opportunities to create magical memories are limitless!


Could we see a return of the Thorpe Park Rangers as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations? Perhaps we will see I'm a Celebrity being repurposed for a different family friendly attraction? Or are the emoji characters from Chessington being loaned out to Thorpe Park on the cheap cheap this year?
