    Need a get away from all the chaos & noise, then there's a hidden garden with a couple of benches, beautiful landscape & a pond. Found behind Stealth, just to the left of the entrance of the queueline

    I'd definitely recommend it. Honestly i have to say that if you're really looking for enjoyment then fast-track tickets are important!! thought definitely worth it. Great experience!

    I did thoroughly enjoy my two days at Thorpe park the staff are so incredible friendly, the prices are quite good as well. The only downfall is the wait for the rides, far too long.

    Check the weather before going as rain WILL ruin your day. Not many signs inside the resort, so expect go get lost. Calculate your trip carefully as the restaurants get packed up quickly.

    Awesome way 2 celebrate bday! Don't party the day b4 though! :) And wear comfy sneakers- you'll be hanging up-side down under the sky! Oh, and there's a good chance 2 get soaking wet. :) FUN!

    Thursdays and Tuesdays are the best days to come. Less people. Come early and queue for the big rides before the queues build up..

    Leave The Swarm to last as its new and u will find yourself queueing for more than 2 hrs so definitely do Stealth and Saw first as they are 3x times better!!! Unless u get fast track!

    If you never been on a roller coaster, go for flying fish (not too extreme) then you can go for the rest. I've never been on a coaster and I passed out on the Swarm

    Get there early and go on saw first as it's far from the entrance and there's no queue at that time. Colossus is next door so you'll get two rides done quickly!

    Get here early but be prepared to go queue. Go for the ultimate ticket to allow you to queue jump if you can...well worth it. Hand driers in the toilets don't work though staff know about the issues w

    There's everywhere WiFi, a lot of really fun attractions. The queue can be really long and that's a minus. If you have money you could buy a more expensive ticket where you don't have to queue!

    Best time of the year to go if you can catch a sunny day!! Unbelievably short queues and you can even get away with a couple of the wet rides :D Tesco is doing a 2 for 1 on tickets too

    2010, free parking. 2011, £2. 2012, £4!? Also like how the standard ticket price has doubled so the 2for1 deal is a trick. Spendspendspend!

    September is the quietest • leave coasters to later in the day • eat little & often • visit restaurants at off-peak times • enter long queues with drinks • arrange meeting point • wear comfy shoes

    Arrive before opening, and then ride the big rides first (eg Saw) as queues will build up during the day. Food is mostly fast food including Burger King, KFC, and Pizza Hut.

    Go early to avoid really massive queues. Stealth and Saw are by far the most extreme. Colossus is good, but overrated in my opinion.
