Thorpe Park, London
Thorpe Park: Extreme rides for the brave!
Thorpe Park is one of the UK's most thrilling theme parks, with some absolutely stomach churning rides. Situated in Surrey, just outside London, it provides a great day out once you've seen the sights and sounds of Central London. Just some of the heart racing rides include Saw The Ride based on the movie franchise which has a 100 degree 'beyond vertical' drop, while Stealth launches you from 0-80mph in under two seconds and to a height of 205ft. Or, see if you can cope with ten loops on the Colossus, or a G-Force of 4.5 on the Nemisis Inferno. Its most recent extreme ride has launched for the 2011 season. Named Storm Surge, it will send riders spinning down a 64-foot raft. While Thorpe Park is the perfect place for adrenalin junkies, the park does also have rides to suit people of a calmer nature, and a short train ride or drive towards London will bring you to Hampton Court Palace. Thorpe Park is also convenient for reaching one of the biggest airports in the world, Heathrow.
