The deal between Merlin Entertainment, who owns the amusement park, and The Cloud means that visitors to the attraction can use wireless on their mobile devices to find out information about the park as well as special offers. The Cloud has also provided free wireless to Merlin’s other attractions, the London Eye and Alton Towers.
“We know that when visitors come to Thorpe Park, they want to get online and share their experiences – whether that’s uploading photos, checking in or simply using our app to plan their visit. Mobile is now key to making the most of a trip to the Park and therefore so is mobile internet,” said Jason Wills, marketing director at Thorpe Park.
“The free Wi-Fi service is available across the Park and we hope this will encourage people to make the most of their trip and ultimately have a great day out at Thorpe Park,” he added.
Vince Russell, managing director at The Cloud, said: "Demand for Wi-Fi is constantly increasing. This is especially true of venues such as theme parks and retail outlets where mobile users want to share their experiences and interact with friends as they go about their day.
“Following a successful roll-out at Alton Towers Resort, we’re delighted to be bringing our service to Thorpe Park. Wi-Fi will of course benefit visitors but it will also be a useful tool for on-site retail and food venues. In an age where mobile is so key to everyday life, Thorpe Park has placed Wi-Fi at the forefront of its offering,” he added.
