Adrenaline Adventures!

This summer we decided to try something slightly different as a group social and visit a theme park!

We chose the nearby Thorpe Park for a visit, which features plenty of thrill rides to keep us occupied all day!! We got to enjoy lots of roller coasters and other rides throughout the day, and there wasn’t even too much queuing!

The park features the fastest roller coaster in the UK, Stealth, and it was definitely a fun experience! It goes from 0-80 mph in 1.9 seconds.

GIF of a roller coaster cart launching very fast from the right of the view and climbing a tall arc before slowly going over the top and coming back down - the climb and drop are almost straight up and down. It's so tall the camera has to move to fit it in when the coaster is at the top.

We also really enjoyed SAW – The Ride, a coaster with lots of twists and turns, Rush which was like a very, very big swing and Detonator which lets you drop from a great height!

It was a really fun and different thing to try as a social, and we were certainly ready for a rest by the end of the day! We may have given ourselves a taste for adrenaline, so perhaps you’ll see us at another theme park next year!
