Been to both.
I'm going to sit on the fence and say they are both as good as each other although, Alton towers has its own hotel which has a water park also more spacious!! More acreage!!

I always feel a bit bad for Alton Towers, both owned by the Merlin group, but the Merlin group are attempting to turn Thorpe Park into the white knuckle park, so Alton Towers aren't getting the same investment into thrill seeking rides, although I think it's still more popular as Merlin have resorted to giving BOGOF TP tickets away on pizzas sold in Tesco...

Purely on rides it's got to be Thorpe Park (was AT 5 years ago IMO). However as a theme park Alton Towers takes it.

Been to both recently, the rides at Thorpe park are much better and more thrilling than AT.... AT is massive too and it takes forever to walk around the park to get to different rides which wastes time. Go to thorpe park

Alton Towers has a much bigger and better feel to it as a park and the top rides are fantastic. But, Thorpe Park has equally brilliant rides and it can be easier to get round.

I'd say the rides are equal, so choose between easy to get round/ get on everything (Thorpe Park) or awesome park feeling (Alton Towers). I would honestly happily go to either of them, but can't beat the excitement and atmosphere of AT And there is plenty of time in the day, unless you want to feel like you have actually done everything.

Thorpe Park overall has the better more thrilling rides, just. AT has Nemesis which is rated still as on of the best in Europe. That said I prefer AT as (sounds stupid) but it's just kinda more magical, the grounds are really beautiful and it's really well taken care of.

I've been to Thorpe Park twice now and the rides are really great. But I heard Alton Towers was supposed to be better. But I don't know as I haven't visited there.

Thorpe Park - no height restictions so rides can actually have big drops.
