    We’ve never been but I’d head for the less scary ones as I’m not very brave. Much happier holding everyone’s bags and coats while they go off on the rides 🙂 x

    I last went to thorpe park for my 21st and I went on Colosuss I still have the hoody haha. It was very scary as there was a tiny gap between me and the pull down bar as I didn’t want it to tight what a mistake. I also like the rollarcoaster in the dark but not sure what that is called.
