One thought on “Thorpe Park”

    Been many times, but first time on a weekday outside of school holidays, with some careful planning we managed to queue no more than 30 minutes for any rides, best times are before 11 and after 4, when the queues really are fantastic, you can get almost everything out of the park in a quiet day, but I’d recommend 2 days to fully exploit riding opportunity, Tuesday-Wednesday is best to avoid school trip groups and really get the queuing to a minimum, a great theme park and one I certainly recommend.
