We haven’t forgotten about the many rides & attractions that have left the theme park, whether to make space for new developments or because of planning restrictions. Remind yourself of what once resided at the resort, for some Thorpe Park nostalgia.
Rides & Attractions
Opened: 2013 | Closed: 2014
This casual take on a hotel initially opened in 2013 as ‘Crash Pad’, run by an external company called Snoozebox, where shipping containers were converted in to compact rooms. The temporary development was purchased by the park the following year and rebranded as the Thorpe Shark Hotel.
Opened: 2003 | Closed: 2005
Located in Lost City, this Fabbri Ferris wheel was installed the same year as Quantum as part of a multi-ride deal. A welcome break from a predominantly thrill-based park, the Resort’s target market at the time meant that ridership was low, leading to the removal and relocation to Chessington where it replaced Samurai. Rush is now located where Eclipse once stood.
Opened: 2000 | Closed: 2000
In July 2000, a fire broke out at the park and destroyed a number of rides. To compensate, a travelling Huss Enterprise was purchased, which later became Zodiac and themed accordingly.
Opened: 1990 | Closed: 2004
Originally opening as Space Station Zero, the ride was relocated outdoors in 1990 and given an aquatic theme with beautiful landscaping. It was then relocated again in 2004 to prepare for the construction of Stealth which now stands near the site. The coaster reopened in 2007 and adopted a surfing theme, featuring bright orange trains with individual lap bars instead of a shared restraint between the two riders.
