When we got there we were surprised to see a lot of progress taking place, specifically around the shipping containers of Sub species.
On the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, Thorpe Park has paid their respects by moving the plaque in front of the construction walls of loggers leap. Before her death, Princess Diana and her sons rode loggers leap and other rides on park.
