Hyperia @Thorpe Park Resort

Hyperia at Thorpe Park Resort, the UK’s newest tallest and fastest roller coaster is testing!

Hyperia at Thorpe Park Resort

From 24th May 2024, Thorpe Park Resort will be taking thrills to incredible new heights with ‘Hyperia’ — the UK’s tallest and fastest rollercoaster. Reaching heights of 236ft and speeds of over 80mph, once you’ve experienced Hyperia you’ll never fear again.

Hyperia – It Will Make Your Heart Race!

Reaching staggering heights of 236ft and full-throttle speeds of over 80mph, the brand-new ‘Mack’ coaster is set to get hearts racing and voices screaming into summer 2024 and beyond.

Watch as the thrilling new ride undergoes it first tests. We have to say it was much more successful than the test runs for Sik at Flamingo Land Resort, where the North Yorkshire theme park demonstrated why ride testing is an essential part of the build process after some of the test dummies fell out during the Siks test run.

Hyperia Opening Date

THORPE PARK Resort, the UK’s most thrilling theme park, will take thrill seekers to incredible new heights when Hyperia launches on the 24th May 2024 and it claims the crown of the UK’s TALLEST and FASTEST rollercoaster from The Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Thorpe Park Roller Coasters

Thorpe Park offers a number of roller coasters, ranging from the family-friendly Flying Fish to the 205ft tall Stealth which features the fastest acceleration of any roller coaster in Europe.


Colossus was the World’s first ten looping roller coaster and was the park’s first major attraction. The record held by Colossus has now been beaten by The Smiler at Alton Towers with 14 inversions.


The Walking Dead

An indoor junior roller coaster named X once held the record for the World’s first, theatre roller coaster in the dark. This ride has now been rethemed as The Walking Dead, a horror-themed roller coaster that mixes the theatrics of a Halloween style scare attraction with the practical effects of a traditional ghost train.
