Thorpe Park shares images of Project Exodus

Thorpe Park is preparing to open the UK's tallest and fastest rollercoaster in 2024.

The record-breaking rollercoaster has already been given the code name of Project Exodus, and the Surrey-based theme park has even given thriller-seekers an insight into what they expect, sharing a point-of-view video of the new ride.

The much-anticipated new rollercoaster will be 236-feet tall, meaning that it will replace Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s The Big One as the biggest ride in the UK.

What's more, it will break the speed record, reaching a top speed of 81 miles per hour.

Project Exodus is set to become the first major rollercoaster to open at Thorpe Park since the Swarm back in 2012.

Despite this, the park hasn't yet announced a specific opening date for the new rollercoaster.

The park first announced plans for Project Exodus back in 2021, explaining that it was a reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on visitor numbers.

Thorpe Park - which is operated by the Merlin Entertainments group - said in a statement at the time: "Thorpe Park Resort aims to continue to invest in the Park’s attractions to encourage more people to return to the Resort now that the tourism industry has re-opened.

"This key investment and the introduction of new attractions is critical to the Resort’s recovery from the COVID-related impacts on the business.

"With this in mind, we are delighted to announce that we are proposing to add an exciting new rollercoaster to Thorpe Park Resort’s portfolio of world-class attractions."
