Feeling brave? Surrey's Thorpe Park has some of the most talked about theme park rides in the country, sure to get your heart beat racing. Go head-over-heels on the infamous 10-looper Colossus, scream if you want to go faster as you plunge from zero to 80mph on Stealth, one of Europe's fastest roller coasters and be one of the first to take a journey into distorted reality with Derren Brown's new psychological theme park ride.
For families with smaller children visit Chessington World of Adventures, a 10 acres theme park, featuring 10 themed lands with over 40 rides and attractions, along with Chessington Zoo and Sea Life Centre. Alternatively, visit the magical world of Hobbledown in Epsom, a mystical adventure park and farm, with costumed characters, wooden play areas, indoor play barn and crystal mining village.
