Mumsnetters needed to visit THORPE PARK Resort on Happy Height Day! NOW CLOSED

(227 Posts)

We're looking for 50 Mumsnetters and their DCs to attend Happy Height Day at THORPE PARK Resort (tickets alone worth £196) and tell us all about it.

Here's what THORPE PARK Resort say: "We see so many excited kids every year who have just reached 1.4m and are now tall enough to have the ride of their lives. At THORPE PARK Resort we're championing this achievement with our Happy Height Day, and celebrating the moment these kids experience a whole new world of thrills!
Whilst we love seeing these kids giddy with excitement to ride on Stealth for the first time, with over 25 rides and attractions throughout the Park and with a new ANGRY BIRDS Land opening in May, there really is so much to keep the whole family entertained. And that includes those under 1.4m"

Of course THORPE PARK Resort is a day out for all the family and has traditionally been popular amongst older children but for Happy Height Day they are particularly interested in showcasing their thrilling rides and attractions to children who are at least 1.4 metres tall. As with all theme parks, rides are often, from a safety point of view, suitable for various height children. They have 11 rides and attractions suitable for children who are on or this height - the Extreme Thrills rides (here). So, if you have at least one child who fits the bill height wise and is up for a thrilling time, read on...

The event will take place on Saturday 22nd March at THORPE PARK Resort.

The chosen Mumsnetters will receive:
- 4 x THORPE PARK Resort Annual Passes: unlimited access to THORPE PARK Resort throughout the 2014 season, plus 20% discount across selected on Park retail and food outlets. (worth £196, annual pass terms and conditions apply)
- Gold Priority Pass on Saturday 22nd March: allows fastrack access to many of the rides and attractions
- Vouchers to buy lunch or use in the retail shops on Saturday 22nd March (worth £50)

Every family who attends the event day will also receive a Happy Height Day welcome pack and gift as a thank you for attending smile.

Those families selected will be asked, in return, to post their feedback on a thread on Mumsnet after the day to share experiences and also add a review to the reviews area on MN here.

All chosen Mumsnetters will also be asked to use their tickets again to visit THORPE PARK Resort for the launch of ANGRY BIRDS land - dates TBC.

We'd also love it if you could take a few photos of your day and upload them to the feedback thread. Photos may be used by THORPE PARK Resort on Facebook, their website and possibly on other marketing material.

Please note a maximum of 4 people per family can attend the day. Each family will need to make their own way to the park, as travel is not included, however there will be free parking in the car park for those who decide to drive.

If you'd like to take part please add your details here.

We'll be in touch with those selected on 14th March.

Thanks and good luck!

PsychicPaper - did you mean missing out the link? If so I have added it now

Hulababy Fri 07-Mar-14 17:53:52

I filled in the form but added dd's age as 12 instead of 11y. She's not 12 til April. I'm just so used to putting 12 after looking at summer holiday stuff. Is it possible for MN to change it? Thanks

Fingers Crossed smile

Kormachameleon Fri 07-Mar-14 18:40:04

ds would burst if we did this. i have everything crossed

HappyHippyChick Fri 07-Mar-14 18:41:03

Thanks Angelie all done.

booface Fri 07-Mar-14 19:23:14

Sounds great, my son would love this, really hoping!!

Ledkr Fri 07-Mar-14 20:00:13

Done, I'm hoping too but never get picked lol.

Claudiecat Fri 07-Mar-14 20:33:03

Done! Fingers crossed.

schilke Fri 07-Mar-14 21:05:37

I filled in the form and have I think I ticked the wrong height box for dd1 - she should be over 140cm not underblush just measured her to make sure. Can you change it?

beepbeep Fri 07-Mar-14 21:13:30

DCs would be beyond themselves!!

Ledkr Fri 07-Mar-14 21:42:36

I put 12 too as I'd also been booking our summer ferry. Can you change it? She's 11 until May, it might make a difference.

EstoyAqui Fri 07-Mar-14 21:50:21

I've put DD down. She is tall for her age but DH insists she isn't that tall. I'm sure she is. Can I measure her in the morning and withdraw if necessary? blush

muminthecity Fri 07-Mar-14 21:58:53

DD would love this - I've just checked her height and she is exactly 141cm tall so just the right height for the big rides!

Catypillar Fri 07-Mar-14 22:16:42

Not after their half-hearted so called apology for the "Asylum" attraction I won't be.

for anyone who missed it https://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/mediacentre/pressreleases2013/openlettertothorpepark.aspx

I have 2 that are just tall enough to take full advantage of this so fingers crossed. smile

aristocat Fri 07-Mar-14 22:45:16

DD is 1.39m tall ..... so close to the big rides! DS has measured at 1.53m - just realised he is 5ft shock

Quinteszilla Fri 07-Mar-14 22:45:57

Fingers crossed!

MamaSara Sat 08-Mar-14 02:27:04

Done. Would have two very excited children if chosen! smile

Wow! Our DCs are too small yet but good luck to those who've applied!
