THORPE PARK, the nation’s Thrill Capital, have created the fastest England flag in the country by turning Stealth into an 80mph St George’s Cross, preparing England supporters across the country for the World Cup and a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
From Friday 11th June, and for as long as Stevie G and the boys are still competing in the tournament, THORPE PARK are offering patriotic fans half price entry* when wearing official England replica shirts - giving them the chance to ride Stealth, one of Europe’s fastest rollercoasters, and the country’s fastest national flag.
Vicki Smith, Marketing Director said: ‘We know how supporting England can feel like you’re on a rollercoaster ride at times, so we’re asking fans to substitute it for the real thing at THORPE PARK. Everyone at the Park is going football mad, we’ve even turned Stealth into our very own ‘Goal-ercoaster’!
The team may be thousands of miles away, but supporters will feel every high and low, and with views of Wembley from the top of Stealth, THORPE PARK is a great place for fans to sport their shirts and support their team.’
With Capello’s team starting the group stages on Saturday, fans are able to take advantage of half price entry to the Park in a bid to tackle some of Europe’s most extreme rollercoasters. Kick off with the ten-looping Colossus, shoot from 0-80mph in under 2 seconds to the height of 205ft on Stealth and finish the hat-trick on Nemesis Inferno, the 4.5 G-Force experience. And if there’s any extra time, England fans will be able to face their fears on the world’s most terrifying rollercoaster, SAW – The Ride before braving SAW Alive, the world’s most extreme live action horror maze.
After all that, the highs and lows of an England match won’t seem so bad and with games being shown live at the Park, there will be plenty of time to experience both the ups and downs of the match and the rollercoasters!
