Following Thorpe Parks application for a brand new attraction to be built in the space of the unused arena area for the 2016 season Runnymede Borough Council have approved the plans! The park has been given full planing permission for the new attraction which is believed to be a dark ride. Work on removing the arena is already fully underway with the grand stand fully removed and the grass bank and trees already gone. However it is believed that work will rapidly progress over the next few weeks before the main season starts again in March.
The new attraction looks set to have a ride bag drop off and collection point as well as a shop and pre show area. According to rumours this will be the biggest project Merlin and Thorpe Park have ever undergone!
