Day trip to Thorpe Park http://www.thorpepark.com/
The park is open between 10am - 6pm.
Tickets are £24.99 each on the website. Do not print these yet I will find 2-4-1 vouchers closer to the date.
I hosted this event in September and it was one of the best meetups I've done so far, was so much fun so have decided to do it again for 2014!
Trains run to thorpe park from Waterloo which takes about 40 mins and a return ticket would cost £9.70 off peak. We will meet at Costa Coffee at Waterloo station at 10am like last time and get the train to Staines, which is about 3 miles away from the theme park. There is a shuttle bus link (number 950) which operates directly from Staines Rail station to Thorpe Park approximately every 15-20 minutes. This shuttle starts running at 9am from Staines Rail Station and stops running from Thorpe Park an hour after park closing time. The Shuttle bus for return journey costs £3.50.
I would expect we will split into groups again as this worked very well last time, we can all meet for lunch half way through then regroup at the end of the day to grab the train back home near closing time. Fast-track tickets can be bought on the day from booths in the park for £3 a ride if there are really long queues for certain rides.
I picked the 29th March as the park is now closed until mid-March and I thought pay-day weekend would be a good shout :)
