Free Tickets to Thorpe Park; The Detail

This newspaper promotion starts in The Sun on Saturday 23 April 2016. There are 2 possible options available to you where you can choose to collect either sun perk codes or tokens. Whilst this is a relatively complicated application process, if you can comply with each stipulated requirement, it is possible to enjoy a day out at Thorpe Park for free.

The paper-based offer does not allow you to select the actual date you would like to visit the park, (although the sun perks option does), as you will have to select from a range of possible date bands. You will subsequently be allocated non-transferable tickets for a particular date within one of these date bands.

For those planning a visit follow our Guide to Thorpe Park packed with top tips to help you beat the queues.

    • Hi Vicky, unfortunately Topdogdays is not involved in the running of this offer, (we simply let you know where the deals are), so cannot advise you on this matter. We do hear reports each year of people receiving their tickets quite some time after application deadline but similarly we also hear of people not receiving any tickets so fingers crossed for you.

    Thank you

    • Hi Shalika, with a 2 for 1 voucher the ‘free’ person needs to be accompanied by a full paying person purchasing an on-the-gate price ticket at Thorpe Park, (currently a full price peak adult ticket for Thorpe Park is £59.99). There is currently a good Groupon promotion that offers Thorpe Park tickets for £27pp and includes a ride digital download. More details available at Thorpe Park Deals. Tickets purchased online from Thorpe Park also offer substantial discounts off the main gate price too.

  11. I want to visit

  12. I submitted my 8 sun tokens but still have not received my 2 free tickets. Could you please let me know why.

    Many Thanks

    • Hi Arlene, Topdogdays simply signposts to the deals & discounts but doesn’t hold the offers ourselves so unfortunately I can’t help you with this. These free ticket offers are very tricky as you have to follow so many instructions but fingers crossed for you.
