I've only been to Thorpe Park the last two years, we've just booked our third stay for June. I can honestly say that it seems to be getting rougher each year. I do still love the ride but it definitely needs a refurb. Major track repaint is needed, when you look at the track now to when it first opened, the blue hardly shows anymore. The train definitely needs a redesign, the restraints are very solid and not cushioned at all and there's a serious lack of room. Our group that goes comprises of me (5'3 with a fairly slim build), my best friend (just under around 6ft, decent build) and then two other people who are either around 5'6 and on the bigger side, tall and on the slimmer side or around 5'4 and slim. I can honestly say that the amount of struggle that goes into getting into those seats is ridiculous, even for us smaller people. The amount of times I have hit my head on the restraints as I'm climbing in is too many to count. So definitely needs a more roomy design. And can I just point out: THIGHS! Does anyone else have the same issue as me and my friends where you end up with insanely trapped and pinched thighs by the end of the ride?
If you hear people singing random songs on a rollercoaster, it's probably me and my best friend #SmileAlways
