Park of the Month, September 2013: Thorpe ParkBy Nick Sim, Monday, September 2, 2013 10:00
This month, we'll be focusing on Thorpe Park, with a number of in-depth features, top 5 lists and forum discussions.
Billing itself as the UK's "thrill capital", Thorpe Park has become an essential destination for teenagers and young adults in recent years. It has invested heavily in a line-up of major roller coasters and thrill rides, while throwing out almost any pretence of catering for family groups. Its Halloween Fright Nights events have become a big event in the theme park calendar, drawing in huge crowds.
We're excited to hear your views on the park, and all of our coverage will be designed to trigger debate about its past, present and future. That starts with today's look at the top 5 rides and attractions at Thorpe Park. We'd also love to hear your views on how you'd change and improve the park in our forum discussion.
Don't forget, you can find full details of all of the rides and restaurants at the park, along with reader ratings and reviews, in our extensive Thorpe Park guide.
