Rocky Express

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

Riders sat in open topped train carriages, which then span around in a circle. The ride picked up a bit of speed, and the experience could be more intense than it looked. As it got faster, riders were pushed into the outside of the carriage, so it was wise to make sure the heavier of the two riders in a row was on the left!

Rocky Express was a fun family ride, which acted as another good filler for those not yet ready to experience some of Thorpe's larger flat rides. Sadly the ride closed towards the end of 2021, in preparation for the redevelopment of the Old Town area and the building of Project Exodus.
