The Thorpe Park is an amusement park opened to the public since 1979. It remains valid due to a constant modernization. New attractions are opened almost every year. The Thorpe Park’s slogan “an Island Like no Other” makes reference to its water theme.
The park is suitable for teenagers and young adults. There are not many attractions for younger children or babies. However, the park offers facilities for young parents who are willing to spend the day in the park.
The Thrope Park is very popular because it is very close to London. You can find it between the towns of Chertsey and Staines in the Surrey County.
The amusement park is partially flooded, which was used to include water attractions. It gives the sense of being on an island, and it inspired the slogan of the park.
