I give the Merlin group a lot of hard earned money throughout the years and been to many of there attractions but this by far is the worst one. The animal enclosures are way too small. So much so that most are pacing the same area constantly they have worn a track in the ground of their little spaces. For example they have the slimmest reindeer that I have ever seen. The new Tiger Rock ride gets you soaked so they added lockers to stop your devices getting wet. Good idea right? Yes if they put the prices on them it would have but everyone but thought it was £1 but it was £2. None of the staff knew that either. They called maintenance almost half a dozen at least. We were told 5 minutes each time. After half an hour I requested for a manager. At a hour maintenance came and he had to call because he knew nothing about the lockers, he had to ring the ivory tower to find out the issue. Then over hour and a half later still no manager came. The staff we spoke to said we should of gotten something for their mistake that made a lot of us miss a family moment because they were too lazy to come and deal with a customer. If this is how they deal their paying customers then they don't deserve to have paying customers. I've been in management and I wouldn't have the Gaul to treat even 1 customer like we were. It's all a the greedy then maybe they should lose customers til they learn how to treat customers better. I do feel so sorry for the low paid staff. The current management in place then it deserves to be closed down because they couldn't organise a pee up in a brewery. Avoid unless you wanted to be treated like garbage. Collapse

Arrive at 11:15, 45min ques to enter if doing the 2for1 voucher. No advice about ride que time until you enter the park, only to see the board saying 2hr wait for the main rides. (I know it’s summer holidays but that’s a joke) Decided to try tomb blaster first as it had a 45min wait, 1.5hrs later we get on the ride, which is absolutely rubbish. Now it’s nearly 2pm 30 min que for Churros! Try Ramasees revenge and we sit down only for my father to be told in front of everyone to get off as his chest is too wide! Very upsetting and embarrassing for him. He then decided to not attempt any other rides (he’s not even that big, just broad). We then realise we have to get fast track if we stand any chance of getting on a main ride only to be told NO MORE FAST TRACK, which is ludicrous! Try to take my 2yr old niece on a ride, she makes friends with a girl exactly her same size in the tree topper que, they both get on the ride and my niece is then ushered off by the rude attendee saying she’s too small, she was devastated!!!! A very stressing time for us all. They measure her as 89cm where as at home we’d measured her at exactly 90cm I then get my family fast track to Zufari, massive waste of money as all they seen was a Giraffe. Eve time by this point was disappointed and fed up as we’d not even got on any rides (what a joke) I go to guest services and say we want a refund to be told I need to contact feedback team to arrange that, I was even going to get an annual pass but I have honestly lost faith in the Merlin enterprise. My family had come all the way from Jersey to visit the park only to be let down and extremely upset. We decided it was best to leave the park and make the most of the rest of our day somewhere else before their flight home A very stressful, upsetting day had by all! I never write a bad review but I feel very passionate about this one as I don’t want others to have this type of experience Collapse

Took my two grandchildren there on the 14/8/2018 birthday treat for granddaughter. Wasn't impressed. Joined a queue for Thomb raider ride wait time 50 minutes two and a half hours later we actually get on the ride some of the laser guns not working. Rides closed and re opened. A friend visit on the Sunday and told be seven rides were closed. Role of Britain take your money but don't provide the service also had to pay three pound for car park. Complain on the day offered another days pass doesn't help when aeuve in France given a fast track pass for one ride twenty minutes before park closed so no queues anyway. Animals could have better enclosures. Would not recommend Collapse

Most of the rides here are calm and not scary at all, so very friendly for children or adults that don’t want their hearts in their stomachs! Thorpe Park is more for the thrill seekers amongst us. There are loads of animals etc. We wished we had the money for the vip attractions where you get to see more of the safari animals and do other fun stuff. But each activity costs 30£ each!!! We went on the zufari ride and literally only saw giraffes, rhinoceros and one or two other animals which was disappointing. The most scariest ride we found was the banana boat one! As expected some rides had 1 hour waiting ques and buy your own food and drinks cuz the prices can be a joke Collapse

Great day out with friends and family. The park wasnt overly busy which was nice, weather was boiling which has its ups and downs but rather that than rain, which it did for about 10mins we were there:) Food was ok priced, but to be expected on the more pricey side. Highly recommend the refillable bottles if its a hot day, we bought 2 between our group and filled it about 5/6 times. U can wash them out too at the filling stations so u can change between drinks or family members. Dnt buy the hotdogs though, the sausge to roll ratio is way out &the roll was crunchy and dry, didnt enjoy it and left it after 2bites. Great they give bands to say the little ones have been measured so we can see shich rides to go on&the staff can see and make the Q'ing quicker-well as quick as can be for theme parks. All in all was a lovely day out and my 6year old 1.3m could manage 90% of the rides, Vampire included:) Collapse
