Listen I've been on a fair few theme parks this is my opinion and without a shadow of a doubt Thorpe park is by far the best thrill seeking theme park ,I live near to Alton towers of which is not that great ,after all you spend most of your time walking about so in conclusion these are my top 5
1thorpe park easily.
2blackpool pleasure beach
3alton towers
5drayton manor

What's up, its good paragraph regarding media print, we all be familiar with media
is a enormous source of information.

Have to say Alton Towers would be my top choice although price and queues are a bit of an offput. I enjoy Blackpool however as the 1st comment states i do have an issue with safety there, numerous rides close due to tech problems which i always assumed was something wasnt working until i had the bad luck to be on one ride when a "Tech Fault" happened on the steeplechase the brakes locked on we did a complete emergency stop and i head butted the back of my 10 year son, How I didnt break my nose teeth and do my son some major damage i dont know and i have to say the staff were less than concerned..............

Nemesis, Oblivian, , Air, Smiler to name a few oh Thirteen, Rita come on Alton towers has it all. Blackpool a close 2nd for the nostalga I forgot to mention Ripsaw A.T may be expensive but you get what you pay for

not supprised at all Blackpool Pleasure Beach is amazing!!!

I agree with the list mostly but wouldn't place Thorpe Park so highly. I visited Thorpe Park last year and after paying over £40 to enter got about 1 go on most of the "big" rides before having to make tough choices "do I go on this one again and queue 90 minutes or go on 3 other rides" and to me that is no good value for money. It is also a very small park. Blackpool Pleasure Beach offers an all day wristband for £25 online and you can get on most rides at least a good 3 or 4 times even the more popular ones plus it has a great nostalgic classical feel to it with some fantastic Art Deco architecture.

personally, i think there is a lot wrong with the pleasure beach. no new rides are coming in ( except from infusion and the Wallace and gromit ride ) and the managing director, Amanda Thompson is focusing more on the shows rather than the rides at the park. but i still think it is the best theme park in the uk. its easy to find, has plenty of good rides and for 25 quid for a wristband the price inst bad.

Legoland should be top as close to my house and I like the pasta in the cafe

In my opinion:
5. Chessington
4. Drayton Manor
3. Pleasure Beach Blackpool
2. Alton Towers
1. Thorpe Park

what i say thorpe park,alton towers,drayton manor and legoland. :] ;/

I see why Blackpool is number 1- went there yesterday and its brilliant. But I don't really class that as a theme park- it's different from all other theme parks and so its really different on a class of it's own. What should be number 1 because it's an out and out theme park is Alton Towers because it is brilliant and although Thorpe Park is good it doesn't have the range of rides Alton Towers has and is more for just thrill seekers whereas Alton Towers caters for all. Saying that though great article and Blackpool is good.

What are you talking about when you say balckpool is the best. I would rank it 4 after Alton Towers 1st LegoLand Windsor 2nd and Drayton Manor.

The list is based on attendance. More people visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach each year than Alton Towers, although this is primarily due to the fact that it's very cheap to enter the park.

How come Alton Towers is 2 it is much better than all of the others and it has two hotels,Splashlandings waterpark,crazy golf and not to forget the theme park.

Surprised? Yeah! But I get why BP has hit the top stop. I've been visiting BP since being a toddler and have seen a few rides come and go, I had a particular liking towards Turtle Chase. My issue is the last couple of times I've visited BP, the maintenance on the rides has been appalling. During my most recent visit to BP there were 7 rides closed including, the Big Dipper, The Ghost Train, The Grand National, and even Valhalla was closed for a large proportion of the day.

I still love to visit because of the nostalgia it holds and the great selection of woodys but I wish they'd put a bit more care into ride maintenance. With Merlin in town maybe it will force them to do so..?
