X-CELLENT; Go on..take the plunge!
A world first, X:\No Way Out promises the biggest scare of your life, plummeting you backwards through total darkness.
And the fun just goes on and on.
Thorpe Park is packed with exciting rides. The wet and wild Logger's Leap flume ride has one of the highest plunges in the UK.
And while you're wet, head straight for the Depth Charge, the centrepiece of Fantasy Reef. You hurtle down a 40ft water chute in an inflatable raft to the wet water splash below.
After that, take on the Flying Fish, a magical roller coaster ride, twisting and turning through tumbling streams.
Or how about the Calgary Stampede, which spins its passengers at a dizzying 30 revolutions per minute.
The fast-moving Thunder River - white water rafting in giant circular tyres - spins the boats around, giving a safe pounding against the rocks.
The Hudson River Rafters' jumbo four-seater pedalos will exercise your legs, or try giving your arms a work-out with the Viking Rowers - mini longboats with dragon heads.
The thrilling Wicked Witches Haunt will send shivers down your spine with disappearing ghostly images and giant hairy tarantulas.
Children love the Octopus Garden with its brightly-coloured rides and slides and the fantasy trip through Neptune's Kingdom.
And when you want to rest your feet, there are lots of places to eat, from the ever popular Burger King, to Chez Nous, a French cafe selling crepes, to KFC, doughnut stands and Baskin Robbins Ice Cream.
And don't forget the Potbellies, serving traditional home-style cooking down on the Farm.
