Thorpe Park Resort celebrated a major milestone this weekend with the Island reaching its 40th birthday on Friday 24th May. To mark the occasion, the Island hosted a long weekend of celebrations including the launch of their newest attraction for the summer – BounceZilla! SouthParks visited the Island to experience the celebrations.

Bouncing into Thorpe Park Resort in time for the Island’s big, birthday weekend is BounceZilla. Located behind Rush and next to Crust, the 90m long inflatable assault course is unmissable as you approach that area of the Island. With its bright, bold colours and its upbeat soundtrack which features tracks from each decade Thorpe Park Resort has been open, as well as nods to some of the Island’s popular attractions, BounceZilla creates a party and festival atmosphere in its corner of the theme park. The course itself includes a whole host of obstacles for guests to bounce over, duck under, and crawl through and is just the right level of difficulty so adults and children alike can enjoy bouncing around the circuit. Special mention has to be given to the brilliantly enthusiastic staff, from the hosts who lead guests through a warm-up at the start of the course, the strategically placed staff members with water pistols around the circuit who keep you on your toes and shout encouragement, to the team members who meet you at the very end and congratulate you for completing it. For those who want to experience BounceZilla at a slightly slower pace, each day between 10am-12pm the attraction will operate as BounceZilla Tamed, designed to be a calmer experience especially for families with younger children. BounceZilla is a fantastic addition to Thorpe Park Resort’s line-up of attractions and will undoubtedly prove popular throughout the summer season until it departs on 8th September. You may come down the final slide exhausted, but you’ll also have a big smile on your face.
