Look who's turned up at THORPE PARK Resort... The Army and Emergency Services are here helping flood victims in the local area.

The extent of the flooding is concerning in the nearby area, but we can only hope that it doesn't have a significant impact on the park :)

Thanks to Danny for the signature (:

1 minute into the film is a helicopter shot of Thorpe Park and the extent of the flooding.
Although the park itself doesn't yet look flooded.
The date on the film is Monday 10th Feb

The park itself is not flooded too badly at the moment. Surprisingly the park copes rather well with the fluctuating water levels.

Certain parts do flood such as the Stealth maintenance area - but these are designed to do so so it's not a major concern.

One news report did make me chuckle when the presenter said "this is thorpe park, and it's surrounded by water"

An island surroundedd by water? Never!  :lol:

The park could easily flood then if it's on an island.
