Dear Mummy, Thorpe Park have introduced a crazy looking inflatable obstacle course called BounceZilla. Eager to try this latest attraction we headed to the park for some family fun!
It’s the biggest inflatable obstacle course I have EVER seen! At 90 metres long, BounceZilla is humongous for a little person like me but it seems my folks struggled with it more! Well, they are getting on a bit! Check out our video to see who won the race around the course! After a safety check and minor dry off, with added entertainment by the ride team it was time for us to gain entrance.
It certainly was imposing with a massive monster face, but the friendly staff helped us warm up and put our minds at ease. Having never been on it before we didn’t know what to expect! We clambered past inflatable obstacles, tumbled through the tunnels, squeezed our way through tiny spaces and slid to the finish on a massive slide. It had rained the night before so the addition of a bit of water added to the fun.
BounceZilla is only at Thorpe Park until September 8th, so if you feel the need to bounce around (or torture your parents), make sure you get down there by then. We managed 3 times around – how many times do you think you can you manage?!
It was our first trip as a family to Thorpe Park and we had a great time now that I’m old enough to go on some of the rides like Depth Charge, Rumba Rapids and Flying Fish, as well as other highlights like the Angry Birds 4D Experience and King Pig’s Wild Hog Dodgems. With lockers to store spare bags and plenty of food outlets it was certainly geared up for the crowds. Daddy had £2 for the lockers (luckily there is a machine that converts £1 coins into a £2 coin so don’t panic if you don’t bring one)!
Of course Thorpe Park is designed for young and old alike but for the more thrill seekers, like my daddy, there are terrifying, hair-raising attractions like Saw The Ride, Nemesis, Colossus, Stealth and The Swarm. If you are there for just a day, it’s probably a good idea to get a fast pass, though the App was very well done and Daddy found it very helpful when checking ride wait times.
My mummy also enjoyed the recently opened Jungle Escape, the first jungle-themed escape room in a UK theme park (this is an extra cost) and the scariest ghost train in the UK – Derren Brown’s Ghost Train, not for the faint hearted! If the weather’s good enough don’t forget your towels and swimming costume so you can enjoy Thorpe Park’s very own beach though you might need dry clothes if you go on Tidal Wave 😉
2019 sees the theme park celebrate its 40th anniversary and I can’t wait until I’m old enough to visit on a Fright Night! But for the time being I might have to leave that to my folks. These award-winning Halloween Fright Nights are on: 28th–29th September, 3rd–6th, 10th–13th, 17th–31st October and 1st–3rd November 2019. The thing is, will my folks be brave enough to go…? We really had a fantastic time as family and can’t wait to go back again in the future when I’m older and can go on more rides. I don’t have long to wait! The team and ride staff were all friendly, the park was tidy and there was a high focus on safety with staff checking I was secure when ever I went on a ride. Awesome fun, thank you UK Mums.TV & Thorpe Park for the family day pass.
