Rocky Express

Rocky Express is a small, train themed, circular spin ride which has been at Thorpe Park since the days of Canada Creek - hence the name of the ride.

Riders sit in open topped train carriages, which then spin around in a circle. The ride picks up a bit of speed, and the experience can be more intense than it looks. As it gets faster, riders are pushed into the outside of the carriage, so it is wise to make sure the heavier of the two riders in a row is on the left!

Rocky Express is a fun family ride, which acts as another good filler for those not yet ready to experience some of Thorpe's larger flat rides.
