Can you risk the train ride into fear?

The In­former has two tick­ets to give away to Thorpe Park’s new fright­ener

Staines Informer - - NEWS -

ARE you brave enough to be one of the first to board the new ghostly train ride at Thorpe Park?

Der­ren Brown’s Ghost Train opens at the theme park near Chert­sey next month, and to mark the ar­rival of the at­trac­tion, the In­former has a pair of tick­ets to the re­sort to give away.

The head-spin­ning jour­ney of 10-15 min­utes is a mix­ture of ex­hil­a­rat­ing live ac­tion se­quences, 4D spe­cial ef­fects, grand-scale il­lu­sions, next gen­er­a­tion tech­nol­ogy, and phys­i­cal tran­sit.

There are 12 jour­neys and two end­ings so no two rides will ever be the same...

This jour­ney into the un­known may have you ques­tion­ing where per­cep­tion ends and re­al­ity be­gins.

The cen­tre­piece of the at­trac­tion will con­sist of a 20 me­tre long, four and a half me­tre high, seven tonne Vic­to­rian train car­riage that is sus­pended in mid air over three me­tres above ground by iron chains.

“Vis­i­tors can look for­ward to ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a heady, heart­stop­ping com­bi­na­tion of next gen­er­a­tion tech­nol­ogy, grand il­lu­sion, spe­cial ef­fects and live ac­tion that will com­pletely re­write the rules of what a theme park at­trac­tion can de­liver,” il- lu­sion­ist Brown said.

To be in with a chance of win­ning two tick­ets to the re­sort, sim­ply an­swer the fol­low­ing ques­tion:
