Popped into Thorpe Park for an hour on the way up to London, and still really pleased with the pass. Got the correct VIP wristband, rather than the 'Ultimate' one. The park was PACKED (which ordinarily would be bad news, but rather pleased me thanks to my pass!).
I got on quite a few rides given the amount of time available (including two new ones for me - Flying Fish and Stealth (so both ends of the spectrum!!)).
The only downside was I dressed with a red t-shirt and dark trousers, so along with my VIP lanyard, quencher and the fact I was on my own meant I was mistaken for a member of Thorpe Park Staff by about 6 people (in one hour!) who asked questions! Funny the first few times but quite annoying after a while... won't be making that mistake again! ;-) I can't imagine it was good for Thorpe's PR since my response to most of the questions was "I don't know" with no attempt to find out. Those people must have gone away thinking the staff at TP are a bunch of unhelpful idiots!
Most rides were pretty efficient, but Swarm was a bit of a nightmare - the posted queue time was 45 minutes, and the FastTrack queue was I'd say about 20 (I guess I shouldn't complain). It seems people get totally confused by the "left/right" split, and assume it is a fastpass/non-fastpass split.
I saw a family of 4 heading into "X" via the exit as I was leaving, wearing VIP lanyards - interesting to see others around. Imagine the mayhem that would be unleashed if a full-on TowersTimes "VIP Meetup" was organised! I didn't think Merlin would be too successful selling their 4xVIP Passes offering (£1600 is a lot of money to spend yearly), but there are clearly more than I thought there'd be.
