Thorpe Park Ghost Train - a chilling NEW ride experience coming Spring 2023 to Thorpe Park Resort.
Thorpe Park have officially unveiled Ghost Train – their newly re-imagined attraction replacing Derren Brown’s Ghost Train for the park’s 2023 season.
Ghost Train is set to take daring souls beyond the veil as they depart this existence on their final journey into darkness & beyond.
“Depart the mortal world on a one-way ticket beyond the veil into darkness on THORPE PARK Resort’s newest ride experience – Ghost Train. But watch your tracks, death is always one stop ahead.
This next generation of Ghost Train will take you on a harrowing ride into the realms beneath THORPE PARK Resort to where the supernatural believers call home. Ghost Train is one of the UK’s longest ride experiences featuring live actors and multisensory effects to create a terrifying attraction like no other!
There’s nothing virtual about this petrifying experience, so prepare to meet your maker as you come face-to-face with horrors that dwell within.”
The newly re-imagined ride is said to be live actor and special effects driven as opposed to the former use of virtual reality synonymous with the attraction’s former predecessor.
It is also said to be one of the UK’s longest ride experiences to date and will use state of the art special effects to thrill & chill all who dare enter.
Ghost Train is set to open at the park this coming spring, however an exact opening date is still yet to be announced.
We wouldn’t be too surprised though if Thorpe Park targeted opening day in an attempt to rival The Curse At Alton Manor (which is also rumoured to be opening for Alton Towers‘ opening day too).
Today’s announcement comes following months of speculation by fans as to the status of the ride after construction walls went up in the former ride’s gift shop at the end of last season.
The announcement of Ghost Train comes as a welcome addition to the UK theme park industry and gives fans of Thorpe Park something new to look forward to as they head towards the opening of Project Exodus at the park next year.
