Thorpe Park entrance

Thorpe Park has confirmed that November 2011 will see the return of its annual firework displays, which were previously discontinued following the 2008 event.

The park made the announcement on its official Facebook page, stating "Fireworks are back with a bang as Thorpe Park Blows It Up on 5th & 6th November 2011". Further details are expected to be released in the coming weeks.

Fans of Thorpe Park are being asked to get involved with planning for the fireworks events, with the park asking them to let it know which celebrities they feel should be recreated as effigies and "burnt at the stake".

Thorpe Park is following in the footsteps of sister park Alton Towers, which reintroduced its own fireworks displays last year having previously dropped them due to persistent noise complaints from local residents.
