The Walking Dead: The Ride is the latest new attraction for the Surrey based theme park and will open in Easter 2018.

As the UK’s first and only multi-sensory and multi-part rollercoaster, the experience invites thrill seekers to flee The Walking Dead in a relentless and terrifying ride for survival.

Travelling through the deepest, darkest tunnels, it will feature extensive and realistic theming to bring some of the most compelling and gruesome scenes from all seasons of The Walking Dead to life.

The rollercoaster is at the centre of THORPE PARK Resort’s Year of The Walking Dead unmissable series of events. The annual line-up includes:

The Walking Dead Living Nightmare Extreme (the live action maze at its most terrifying) available only for May Half Term (25th May – 3rd June)

Summer late night opening until 10pm (Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 26th July – 1st September)

Zombie Hunt – an extreme battle for survival in woodland on the outskirts of THORPE PARK Resort for the six weeks of summer (21st July – 3rd September)

Fright Nights – the hugely popular season returns to Thorpe Park Resort with a The Walking Dead theme (5th October – 31st October)

An invasion of Walkers descended upon the Island during FRIGHT NIGHTS and we thought the battle against the dead was won…
