The only other Thorpe Park familiar to us is that great amusement park of rides and scares just west of London. So it was a surprise to find one on the Lincolnshire coast. This one has its fair share of family fun on offer – but of a very different nature from its scary-ride namesake. Thorpe Park, Lincolnshire has most of the Showbar, party and family fun aspect of Golden Sands.
It also has a nine-hole golf course, plus crazy golf spectacularly arranged around waterfalls, a roller-skating rink, tennis and basketball courts. It extends to 270 acres. The touring pitches are big – and there are nearly 200 of them. The golf facilities are great. You can hire clubs and even buggies, with both nine-hole rounds and full rounds being offered.
On the practicality front, Thorpe Park offers two shops, two laundries, fish and chips, a bakery, dishwashing under cover, shower cubicles designed with a wall to shelter your clothes from water splashes – and public transport into Cleethorpes and beyond. The pool is complete with Jacuzzi and SplashZone; and there’s also a five-aside area.
