“We’re thrilled to announce a new minimum height restriction of 1.3m for all passengers! The attraction is recommended for ages 13+ but if you’re a little younger and feeling extra brave you’re good to ride.”

The next generation ride which goes by the name ‘Ghost Train’ is due to open on May 26. The Thorpe Park website describes the attraction as a ‘harrowing ride’ which will take thrill-seekers into the realms beneath Thorpe Park Resort.

“Depart the mortal world on a one-way ticket beyond the veil into darkness on Thorpe Park Resort’s newest ride experience – Ghost Train. But watch your tracks, death is always one step ahead,​​” the website explains.

Thorpe Park warns that “there’s nothing virtual about this petrifying experience, so prepare to meet your maker as you come face-to-face with horrors that dwell within.”

Ghost Train will be the first new rollercoaster at Thorpe Park since The Swarm made an appearance in 2012.
