Best New Addition 2017: Rise of the Demon wins

Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Derren Brown’s Ghost Train: Rise of the Demon is the winner of Ride Rater’s Best New Addition Award for 2017, following a significant overhaul.

In a year of minimal investment in the UK theme park industry, the ride still deserves credit for the considerable improvements Thorpe Park have made to the ride.

The virtual reality section is dramatically improved, being more reliable and much more intense than when it opened last year.

The new ending is also capable of fooling the most sceptical and difficult of individuals – not least our team members themselves.
