THORPE Park has announced a brand new ride that will be opening at the theme park.

The Ghost Train ride launches this year – but it's only for the brave.

It will be one of the UK's "longest ride experiences with live actors and multi-sensory effects".

Guests will board and travel through a supernatural realm, being scared along the way.

More is to be revealed nearer the opening in spring.

Thorpe Park is also reopening from March 24 this year with lots of events already planned for 2023.
