First visit in 25 years. Was looking forward to Phantom Fantasia (Yes I know now, bit behind the times....), have to say the place is looking a little tired.
In a previous review here Thorpe Park promised to make maps of the park more visible at the entrance. They haven't, we didn't see any and needed one.
Cheerful, friendly staff were there but in the minority. They seem to yawn a lot. Perhaps we'd caught them post staff party, a lot seemed to have that 'day after' look about them.
I'm not a roller coaster sought of chap, so in honesty the park is no longer aimed at me. The old snail paced boats were more my style (now long gone).
It wasn't a bad day, but not as good as it could have been.
Licks of paint are needed in many areas.
I preferred it in 1986, but each to their own.
