Thorpe Park hold many special events throughout the year, often beginning the season with Easter celebrations and continuing into peak season with a Summer event. The most memorable Thorpe events, however, come at the end of the season with their Halloween Fright Nights and Bonfire Night celebrations - October/November are really great months to visit the Park.

Here's our in-depth guides and reviews to these special events:

Fright Nights

2004 22nd - 31st Oct 2004: Thorpe's 3rd Halloween event. Fright Nights this year ran over 10 days with new addition The Carnival of the Bizzare in the Pirates 4D cinema.
