I *need* to get my butt back to Thorpe Park – it feels like it’s been YEARS since I’ve been. It was actually only just over a month or so for the launch of Derren Brown’s Ghost Train – Rise of the Demon. But for someone who went there 11 times last season, and as Thorpe Park Resort – Island Ambassador, I feel like I’m slacking! A Thorpe Park Resort are running ‘May Madness’ – and to celebrate this, they given Kip Hakes.com readers the chance to win a Family Ticket (2 Adults and up to 4 Children) to visit up until the 2nd November (T+C’s apply).

What is May Madness?

Sooo, if you’re a Thorpe Park Annual Pass Holder, or a Merlin Annual Pass Holder there’s some stuff perfect for you in the month of May.

Pop Badges

So between the 22nd-26th May if you visit with you Annual Pass you can get hold of some exclusive Pop Badges. These Pop Badges celebrate the two new rides at Thorpe Park Resort in 2017 – Derren Brown’s Ghost Train: Rise of the Demon and the Timber Tug Boat. These badges are on a VERY limited run, and once they are gone – that’s it! Theme Park geeks go NUTS for a limited edition Pop Badge, so ensure you don’t miss out.

Kids Eat for Free

Thorpe Park Resort is open for the entire month of May, so you can take advantage of the quieter weekdays and perhaps pop in with the kids after school. Simply buy any full priced adult restaurant meal and you’ll receive a children’s meal free! (Only one meal per adult). It’s a fun way to get through a few rides when the park is quiet and have an exhilarating dinner!

Bring a friend for less!
