    Thorpe park would be best if the weather will be hot, but either way they both have their good and bad points. You should toss a coin for it

    I would say both. I like Thorpe Park's rides, but I also like Alton Tower's rides. I'd have to choose Alton Towers though I guess. But whichever one you go to, none of them will disappoint

    Thorpe Park is good, the queues aren't as bad as they are at Alton Towers.

    Stealth > Rita
    Nemesis Inferno > Nemesis
    Slammer > Ripsaw
    X: No Way Out > Hex

    Colossus is also good, although TP is missing the equivalent Air or Oblivion so if you want these rides, it has to be Alton Towers.

    Alton Towers! Two different parks! Either the normal rollercoasty park or the water park to choose from on a hot day.

    I drive from Ickenham, and it takes me about 30/40 mins in rush hour, so not too long.

    Distances aside, I can't believe anyone would think that Thorpe Park is better than Alton Towers! Don't get me wrong, TP is a great little place, but it just doesn't compare to AT.

    Been to both and wasn't bowled over by Thorpe Park - my vote goes to Alton Towers.
