Does anyone know where and what happened to the Octopus Garden rides post leaving Thorpe Park!

Many thanks Theme Park Fanatic!

I know they were removed to make way for Storm Surge, but I'm not sure what they did with them afterwards. I wouldn't assume another park bought them, maybe they were put into storage?

I'm pretty sure some of the cars from a ride in Octopus Gardens were placed in the outdoor section of The Big Top. This was only in its first year, 2015, when the maze took place on the beach.

They're probably in storage like the above person has written (that warehouse full of old Thorpe junk that schools go might have some). The Octopus Garden rides probably weren't worth anything at all; maybe some are still trundling about in travelling funfairs. Who knows?

I would suggest you would look at some of TPM's website information. A lot of your questions will have answers there :)

miMiss Hippo and a single car from Slippery Serpent were present inside The Big Top last year, I believe in the jack in the box scene

Last year whilst in the queue for Big Top I was telling a friend how freakishly terrifying Miss Frog was so it was hilarious to see her in the maze!
