Went Thorpe park just now and I have to say it's the best experience I had of the 3 times I have been. All the major rides where 5—10 mins wait (normally hours in the lead up to summer)


But I have to say. The best "ride" was the bumper carts mainly because it's 18 of us on it at a time and let's just say things get competitive :)


So what's your best ride you have ever experienced?

    Went when I was very young so don't know much about it sadly


    Would probs still be empty until the later months so maybe it would be best to check it out if rides are your thing :) Chessingtons more family orientated right?

    Alton Towers and Thorpe Park are good but the theme parks in America are on another level. Been to Busch Gardens in Florida before and some of the rides there :o

    Heard this so much.
    Always heard you need more than a day to completed a whole theme park even if you have Fast track.

    One day I will save up for my tour of the world and of course go Florida <3


    What was the best ride in your opinion?
