Thorpe Park teams with Derren Brown to launch Ghost Train experience

Psychological illusionist Derren Brown has teamed with Thorpe Park to launch Derren Brown’s Ghost Train, a new attraction that promises ‘derail guests’ minds with a series of multi-sensory experiences’.

Derren Brown’s Ghost Train is a train journey of between 10-15 minutes, blending live action sequences, 4D special effects, grand-scale illusions, next generation technology, and physical transit.

“I am proud and excited to have been working with the creative and operational teams at Thorpe Park Resort and Merlin Magic Making to completely reinvent the concept of a Ghost Train for the 21st Century," said Brown.

“Visitors can look forward to experiencing a heady and heart stopping combination of next generation technology, grand illusion, special effects and live action that will completely rewrite the rules of what a theme park attraction can deliver. 

"The team has been galvanised by the positive reaction to the first announcement we made last year and we are even more determined to deliver a revolutionary experience; as such we are constantly tweaking things to ensure they’re the best they can be.

“I firmly believe that this kind of multi-sensory, mind blowing attraction represents a glimpse of what the future holds for theme parks the world over.

The Ghost Train also has 12 different journeys and two endings, so no two rides will be the same.

Derren Brown’s Ghost Train opens spring 2016.
