Thorpe Theme Park London Car Park Exit Nightmare - Drivers Beware!

ConsumerWatch / Theme Parks Jun 10, 2018 - 09:52 AM GMT

By: N_Walayat

ConsumerWatch

Summer is here and families will be busy planning multiple visits to Britains theme parks, where the number 1 UK operator is the Merlin group with it's 32 theme parks and attractions including 10 or so in and around London, which includes Thorpe Park situated in Chertsey. However, motorists need to be fully aware of the nightmare that is this theme parks car park! As was our recent experience when we visited Thorpe Park for the first and LAST time! So whilst the theme park itself was great, especially the Walking Dead rides and attractions, unfortunately the living nightmare continued AFTER the park rides closed as the park becoming a dangerous nightmare to escape!


Thorpe Theme Park London Car Park Exit Nightmare - Drivers Beware!

Thorpe's car park full of frustrated drivers unable to exit, stuck in multiple grid locked queues as apparently there is only one exit route for the whole theme park with ! Nor does it make much difference if you leave exiting the car park for an whole hour, even two hours after the park's rides close because it's still going to be a living nightmare to exit!

So it does not matter of your an ultra safe driver who has not had an driving incident for decades, Thorpe Parks car park full of frustrated grid locked drivers beeping their horns, or driving around aimlessly in circles is a recipe for disaster, yes you guessed it BANG!

What's worse researching on returning home from our Nightmare experience reveals that this is nothing new for there are countless reports on the likes of Trip Advisor complaining about the dangerous nightmare that is Thorpe Park's car park!

DANGEROUS!!!!!

I went for a day out here today with my best friend. With the knowledge school holidays are two weeks away so it wouldn't be busy. WRONG. Where do I begin?

Parking is unorganised and unmarked so it's impossible to find your car at the end of the day out. What's wrong with putting areas and zones to make it easier?!

We complained to Thorpe Park customer services about their dangerous car park and after initially offering a return visit to a merlin attraction have subsequently chosen to ignore our subsequent three communications:

Hi

I'm a premium pass holder, so tickets to an alternative park won't work for us, I've uploaded a copy of my pass and a receipt from the 2nd day of our 2 day visit.

Hi

I've not received a reply to my email of 3 days ago.

7th June 2018

Hi

Since I've not recieved a reply, I'll take it that your not bothered.

You need to fix your car park problem else someones going to get badly injured!

The bottom line is that we will NEVER visit Thorpe Park again, nor would we recommend anyone visit the park on a busy day (basically any holiday) due to its nightmare car park where even ultra safe motorists can run the real risk of being involved in an accident on attempting to exit the car park as was our experience. It's just not worth the risk of the stress and financial consequences that follow an accident primed by the chaos that is THIS theme parks car park!
