Thorpe Park Ride Made Less Scary: Ghosts On The Water Slides

by | 7th, February 2011

THERE are ghosts on ground and in the air where the Storm Surge ride at Thorpe Park was due to be built. The water ride was to stretch over a 17th Century path called Monk’s Walk – it has linked the ruins of Chertsey Abbey to Thorpe Church since…AD666.

Workers have been feeling cold. People have been getting twitchy.

Thorpe Park reacted swiftly. They called the marketing department Jim Arnold, of Southwest London Paranormal:

“The results were so strong, we felt the only explanation could be that an ancient burial ground or settlement was being disturbed, prompting the extra paranormal activity.”

So. The scary ride was moved to somewhere less scary. How’s that for a slogan: Thorpe Park: Not As Scary As It Could Be.

Spotter: Karen
