Visited Thorpe for the first time since 2014 today. The park is looking a bit run down in places, however one thing that has improved significantly since my last visit is the operations! Everything was running at full capacity and operated very efficiently with little to no stacking Saw was also running great, colossus not as great. And the new soundtrack they recieved for the whole park from IMAScore a couple of years ago is fantastic! All in all I had a great day at Thorpe Park
I have a stupid question (per usual). How fast are the Fastpass lines at Thorpe? Do you generally get on within like 5-10 minutes or is it more like Cedar Point where wait times can still be pretty sizeable?
We're flying out of Heathrow at 4:45 (International, so we should probably leave the park around 1) and debating if it's possible to ride the adult coasters and maybe Ghost Train if we get there at opening on a Sunday in late May. Is that a stupid plan? The alternative is skipping this place entirely but it's so close to the airport that it's a pretty tempting option on getaway day.

Unless it has changed from 2017, FastTrack should get you on the coasters in 2-3 cycles as long as you don't queue for the front. I remember the front row queues at Colossus, Nemesis Inferno, and Stealth being quite long.

Went in August 2018 and that's how the the Fastpass lines worked for me, as well. They really helped make sure we could ride everything we wanted to and grab multiple re-rides on stuff we wanted. It was especially effective on Swarm - anytime we booked it we practically walked straight onto the ride.
