VIDEO – Derren Brown reveals first details of Ghost Train attraction coming to Thorpe Park
Following three years in development, work is now underway on the theme park’s biggest investment to date – a ‘next generation’ attraction due to open in Spring 2016.
Derren Brown, the acclaimed British maestro of mind control, has announced details of a unique partnership with THORPE PARK Resort, to create the world’s first fully immersive psychological attraction for a theme park.
The award winning ‘mentalist’ promises that these skills, which allow him to both predict and control human behaviour will be showcased fully at the new ‘themed’ experience, which has been in development for three years and is due to premiere at the park in March 2016.
The new one-of-a-kind experience will be the world’s only fully immersive psychological attraction, designed to manipulate the human mind.
THORPE PARK Resort has released a cryptic microsite www.mindswanted.co.uk to promote the announcement. Fans can sign up for information at the site and will be the first to know when more information is released.
The first publicity pictures which may hint at the nature of the forthcoming attraction have also been released showing the master of mind with his lips sewn up and perhaps most unnervingly, Derren holding what appears to be a human brain in a jar. It took four, painstaking hours, to seal Derren’s lips, locking in his secrets about the new attraction.
Construction on the new attraction has already begun on the THORPE PARK Resort site and is shrouded in secrecy. The company have however, revealed that the footprint of the new experience will encompass 2,306 square metres and will involve a team of over 1,000 specialists from THORPE PARK Resort’s ‘Magic Making Creative Department’ and external experts, due to the ground breaking nature of the attraction.
