Thorpe Park Summer Nights

Rollercoasters and volleyball, what's not to like?

When Thorpe Park invited us to enjoy one of their Summer Nights special's it wasn't really a tough decision... In fact, HELL YEAH! were the exact words said by myself and Kyd.

So what is Summer Nights at Thorpe Park?

For an extra £15 (£5 Merlin Pass and Thorpe Park Annual Pass members) can stay and play at the park until 10pm!! With live entertainment, no queues and drinks and a BBQ on the beach whilst playing Volleyball there is nothing not to like about this pretty cool extra time from the Thorpe Park genius'.

On top of that if you get in quick you could book in at their new Shark Hotel and get an extra day at the park free. Well worth it if you have a long trek to and from the park... or if you want 2 days not 1.

What we thought...

We loved the fact there were not many queues for the rides, that meant more goes on our favourites. The beach area as well placed as after our third go on Swarm in an hour I needed a lie down, having an alcoholic drink in hand during that was just the icing on the cake. Kyd loved the Volleyball and the staff were amazing at teaching him and playing for ages whilst I looked on and sipped a cocktail.... bliss. I reckon it is well worth the extra £ especially if you are a rollercoaster freak like Kyd!
