I believe there is a £50 deposit, which is quite ridicolous really.
Here's mine-
Will Thorpe Park be extrmely busy this Wedensday? :)

Well, not quite. You sign a debit slip that allows them to take £50 from your account, but if you return the Q-Bot, they give you the slip back to destroy. You never actually hand over £50.

Q-Bot's £10 a head, with up to six in a group on one Q-Bot. I have some info here on my site :)

Thanks Koopa Troopa & Islander,
Another question, could I get away with paying for 2 people and using it for four, as the price seems a bit steep?

no, unless you take it in turns! the display tells you the ride you're due on, and the number of people

I'm hitting up Thorpe Park for the first time on Friday, has anyone got any tips for what to ride first, where to eat etc?

RUN to Saw the moment the park opens. After that, no suggestions - every ride will have a queue.

Rather than run, SPRINT. Teleport yourself.

Sprint to SAW, go past Vortex as no-one goes that way, so you should come out roughly before everyone else. Join the line, remember during Stealth if the line's 120 minutes join it as it's the only queue that is exagerated. :)

Personally I'd also bring a blunt weapon of some variety to bash away small children/chavs.

I usually look at things the wrong way :lol:

Thanks for the Legoland advice - it paid off! Busy day though.

Question now:
Does THORPE PARK still sell Hydration Fastrack as there is no mention of anything on their website?
