Stealth • Intamin Accelerator Coaster • Thorpe ParkThorpe Park in Staines, Surrey near the English capital is one of the largest theme parks in the country. Founded in 1979, the theme park is currently operated by the Merlin Entertainments Group. On the Island like no other visitors can expect an extraordinary number of thrill-packed roller coasters and attractions. Its festival ambience is aimed primarily at a younger audience or families with older children, thus setting it apart from the nearby amusement parks Chessington World of Adventures and Legoland Windsor.

Slammer • S&S Sky Swat • Thorpe ParkFun Fact #1: Tussauds composed an elaborate soundtrack for the Island like no other, which was adapted to the course of the day. Unfortunately this was replaced by a new soundtrack from IMAscore.

Fun Fact #2: For many years, the Colossus roller coaster held the record for the roller coaster with the most inversions, before it was superseded by The Smiler roller coaster in the sister park Alton Towers.
