I completely agree... the whole park is so well kept. Even the rides which aren’t in “themed areas” have really nice planting, gardens and sculptures around them. Lost kingdom, little Africa, critter creek, PP world and now TS are all beautifully detailed and you can really appreciate the level of time and effort that has gone into them.I haven’t seen the Wickerman structure so can’t talk about that.
The Marmaliser is a poor excuse for theming and was just a way of getting out of putting in proper physical theming.
The Swarm island may be good but it’s just an individual ride, as soon as you leave Swarm Island you could be on an industrial estate or a maintenance road, there is is nothing exciting about walking around Thorpe Park.
There are no themed areas in the UK that match the level of theming Paultons put into their areas and TS is no exception, in fact, it’s their best area yet.
I hope that the Main Street gets upgraded next (as whilst it’s nice the buildings are slightly flat-faced) and would love to see additions of a proper water ride and a dark ride/indoor complex area featuring some sort of dark ride, maybe a couple of small flat rides, a restaurant and a play area ( akin to Arthur’s area at europa or bazyliszek at Legendia)
