    For the first time in its 33 year history, the nation’s Thrill Capital THORPE PARK, is set to open its very own accommodation, The Crash Pad, the world’s first fully serviced portable hotel to operate at a major leisure attraction. And with some of Europe’s most extreme rides in its back garden, The Crash Pad will catapult guests from dream to scream in less than 60 seconds when it opens in March 2013. With 58 climate controlled rooms sleeping up to 4 guests in one double bed and 2 bunks, The Crash Pad is the ultimate overnight stay for groups of thrill-seeking mates or adrenaline-loving families looking to spend a couple of days trying out some of Europe’s most extreme rides such as the world’s most terrifying rollercoaster, SAW – The Ride, and the Unholy Trinity of Stealth, Colossus and Nemesis Inferno. All rooms will include an en-suite shower room and toilet, flat screen TV and a safe, and a dedicated reception and on-site housekeeping team will ensure guests are looked after and ready to take on a second day of stomach-churning rollercoasters.

    Room packages at The Crash Pad will start from £64 per person per night and will include 2 day Park tickets, selected evening entertainment and breakfast.* Annual Pass holders will be eligible for special rates.

    Mike Vallis, Divisional Director of THORPE PARK, said: ‘THORPE PARK is constantly evolving and pushing the boundaries with the addition of new rides but we are now excited at the next stage of the Park’s development – our transformation into a short break tourist destination. We look forward to welcoming our first overnight guests when we open The Crash Pad in March next year.’

    THORPE PARK have teamed up with innovators in transportable, temporary accommodation, Snoozebox Ltd. The Weybridge based company launched in 2011 at the British Grand Prix and have become an increasingly popular feature and service at major festivals and sporting events in the UK and Europe. The portable hotel can be loaded, stacked and transported with ease and can be fully operational and ready to welcome guests within 48 hours of arriving at a site.

    Robert Breare, Snoozebox Chief Executive, said: ‘Our partnership with THORPE PARK is a real first and we’re looking forward to the ride ahead! We’re delighted to share the same passion for innovation and service with THORPE PARK. Snoozebox’s unique and innovative design is a perfect match for one of the country’s most extreme theme parks.’
