Free WiFi rolling out at Thorpe Park

Checking your email and doing the shopping while at Thorpe Park may not be top of the list when you are visiting what is termed the nation's Thrill Capital, but with free WiFi now rolling out across the site via The Cloud you can make your office bound colleagues jealous when you take a deserved day off by sending them a photo or two.

Thorpe Park now joins other Merlin Entertainment Group sites like The EDF Energy London Eye and Alton Towers Resort in offering free WiFi broadband.

"Demand for WiFi is constantly increasing. This is especially true of venues such as theme parks and retail outlets where mobile users want to share their experiences and interact with friends as they go about their day. Following a successful roll-out at Alton Towers Resort, we’re delighted to be bringing our service to THORPE PARK. WiFi will of course benefit Park visitors but it will also be a useful tool for on-site retail and food venues. In an age where mobile is so key to everyday life, THORPE PARK has placed WiFi at the forefront of its offering."

Vince Russell, Managing Director at The Cloud


Should be ok if it performs better than the queue system at Thorpe Park.

Free Wi-fi here in Hereford now, provided by Allpay, you can have a hour free in 24 hours or something like that, then you got to pay for it, apart from me as allpay provides my home broadband so i get it free.

flipping fast as well, but not enough range.

You go there to have fun and have a break away from computer, laptops, phones, etc.

This just made things worse. Everyone will be glued to their devices. :(

Not sure how many go for a break from their phones. I would have thought somewhere like T. Park would be ideal for wifi. A lot of people will be uploading pics and videos which counts as free advertising after all.

And fiberbunny hit the nail right on the head.

Not to mention if your phone gets broken on one of the rides, then your photos are still safe.
