This month, Dobble, one of the UK’s best loved games for families and children, will be taking up residency at the UK’s most thrilling theme park THORPE PARK Resort.
Featuring world-class, record-breaking rollercoasters, unmissable events and holding the title of the UK’s most thrilling theme park, Thorpe Park Resort is the ultimate destination for those looking to embark on an exhilarating adventure with friends and family.
Replacing the theme park’s classic tea cup ride ‘Storm in a Teacup’, new Dobble Tea Party launches on Saturday 18th March for Thorpe Park Resort’s Passholder preview day before opening to the general public on 24th March. Younger theme park fans can grab their adrenaline apprenticeship with family-fun thrills at the Resort and with Dobble Tea Party having the feel-good factor in abundance, junior guests and their families will be spinning and grinning into the new season!
Reflecting the fast-paced nature of the tabletop game, Dobble Tea Party will take your teacup for a spin whilst twirling and whirling around the gigantic classic teapot, cuppa tea anyone? The ride will feature Dobble branding throughout, including Dobble’s signature colour purple and iconic hand character as featured on the game packs.
As part of the partnership, Dobble will also create a special Thorpe Park Resort edition of the game featuring symbols of the theme park’s iconic rides and events such as Stealth and the award-winning Halloween event FRIGHT NIGHTS. These exclusive packs will be available on a complimentary basis to guests staying at Thorpe Park Resort’s on-site hotel Thorpe Shark Cabins later this year.
