As reported by SouthParks News, Quantum has reopened this afternoon! It appears popular with guests, as it has quickly jumped up to a 20 minute queue.

So Samurai and Vortex have now given up, with Quantum looking suspiciously like it only operates Friday afternoons and the weekend.

The park appears extremely busy already this week, and I believe they opened Creek Freak Massacre early, possibly as a result of this.

The Standard Season Pass is valid from the start of the 2020 season until 1st November, with Friday-Sunday exclusions throughout the school summer holidays and all Fright Nights dates. During the exclusion dates pass holders can gain entry to the Resort from £10 per day.

Premium Season Passes are also on sale for £75 and include unlimited access throughout summer, parking, a Thorpe Park Digipass, and entry on 6 selected dates during Fright Nights. The Premium Season Pass currently has Fright Night exclusion dates of 3rd, 10th, and 17th October – 1st November 2020.

Barely 3 weeks after going on sale, the Thorpe Park Season Pass is having a sort-of sale. Purchasing now will see a £35 Thorpe Park DigiPass thrown in for free.

So before the season even starts, we have a sale that essentially values a Thorpe Park Season Pass at £10. I can't help but feel they're massively devaluing their product.

Premium pass costing £75, includes a stated £35 DigiPass and £30 car parking pass. Really appears to me that that they've valued a season pass at £10.

All I can see happening is the park being very busy next year, but with gate sales being practically zero, meaning the money making for the park is reliant on food, merchandise and fastrack sales. :|
