Thorpe Park's new addition for 2016 is Derren Brown's Ghost Train, a mysterious new dark ride that is believed to be one of the most expensive attractions in the park's history.

Guests will discover a disused warehouse at the centre of Thorpe Park's "island". As they enter a seemingly innocent Victorian train carriage, "it soon becomes clear as sights and sounds fill your senses, that you will come face-to-face with what lies at the end of the line."

Thorpe Park describes the ride as a "one-of-a-kind", 13-minute experience, claiming to have worked with the famous mentalist and illusionist to re-invent the ghost train for the 21st century. Atmospheric effects and virtual reality headsets will add to the experience.

The trains are suspended three metres above the ground and are 26 metres wide. Each contains 60 seats.
