We have been masterplanners at Thorpe Park since its acquisition by Merlin and have been involved with the design of all the major projects since then. The park is surrounded by lakes, the result of gravel working in the past. They are important for wildlife and the lakes to the south-west are part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
The last masterplan sought to create more land and to increase wildlife habitats by making islands in one of the lakes which has given increased shelter to the whole site. At the same time the area of floodplain has been increased to help alleviate flooding in the area. The masterplans run over five and ten year time frames and include a variety of attractions which will allow the park to evolve and satisfy its public.
We have been involved in all the major projects at the park since 1990 which have included six rollercasters, a dark ride and a hotel.
