End of Year Thorpe Park Trip

Back of Students' Union \\ Fri 09 June 2017 08:00-21:00

Celebrate the end of exams with our heavily discounted Thorpe Park trip! Transport and Entry Included.

Please there are only a limited number of tickets available and that these are strictly non-refundable and non-transferable tickets.

The bus will leave at 8am outside the back of the SU and will leave Thorpe Park at 18:00.

What's Included?

You get a whole day in Thorpe Park, all entry and return transport included, for just £35 per person. That's over £30 cheaper than you would pay on the door with the cheapest transport arrangements from Cardiff. Put another way... it's an amazing Students' Union deal meaning you just can't go to Thorpe Park for cheaper.

What's Thorpe Park?

Thorpe Park is the iconic British Theme Park just 20 miles from the Centre of London. It houses signature attraction roller coaster and thrill rides such as Tidal Wave, Colossus, Nemesis Inferno, Stealth, Saw and the Swarm.

The Park is split into themed areas: Amity Cove, Calypso Quay, the Jungle, Canada Creek, Losts City, Swarm Island and 'Angry Birds Land'. It's a phenomenal day out offering something for everyone - that's why we're going there.

What do I need to bring?

Once you've bought your ticket that's pretty much it. Make sure you bring your student card, dry clothes for after the water rides, sun cream and any refreshments you'd like for the bus.

You are not permitted to consume alcohol on the bus. So bring sweets.
