It’s certainly a busy closed season at Thorpe Park, with multiple attraction projects in progress.
Colossus has now taken its first test riders as part of the commissioning process. Construction is starting to come to an end, ready for guests in March.
Many areas of the park are undergoing improvements. Thunder River is being transformed in to the vibrantly coloured Rumba Rapids. The surrounding area has also been given new paint, including the Burger King building, to fit in with the new tropical theme of the area.
At the park entrance, the front of the staff building now features eight extra ticket windows to improve the guest experience on entry.
Other less major projects include the small central food outlet in Canada Creek, which has had a facelift with new theming and signage. Lastly, a newly constructed warehouse has been built on the peninsula.
