'An Island Like No Other'



So as I saw there was no forum topic on this so I thought I would create this!. So as you may know that there is a show called Love Island which first aired in 2015 and grew very popular since with the young adults and many other audiences. Love Island is pretty self explanatory it is a dating show on an island in which people couple up with each other and face challenges as a couple in order for the final couple to win 50k between them!. 


So this rumour of Love Island has been going around the Resort for a couple years now and I think this year may be the year in which Love Island comes to the resort. So the first hints of love island were on Thorpe Park Resort Instagram story in which you could see iconic quotes from the series such as 'muggy' - used in season 3 which tagged Mike also known as Muggy Mike and other quotes from the series which gave us the first hint. The second hint came from this video uploaded by Thorpe Park on the 11th June which it showed the beach background and a iphone text message with the contact saved as a 'love heart and island' which could mean this is pointing at love island due to the emojis used. The video then carries on with a message from one to another saying 'are you ready for the 26th July' which could show a date for when this love island attraction comes to Thorpe Park or just an announcement. I would also like to say on the contacts image on the phone has the green screen background for the islanders photo before they come to the love island villa which is also another hint.


Love Island coming to Thorpe Park is significantly possible due to Thorpe Parks target audience is young adults & adults mainly which are the main target audience which watch love island, plus the tag line for TP is 'An Island Like No Other' referring to the 'Island' and this would fit the theme of love island. Another reason is that Love Island is owned by ITV, which ITV have a very good relationship with Thorpe Park and Merlin as I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Maze was approved by Thorpe and ITV. Also X Factor was filmed at Thorpe Park last year during the auditions and X Factor and have filmed The Only Ways Essex which are both on ITV which makes a more likely chance due to the relationship that love island may come to the Thorpe Park Resort.


We are still unsure what this could be, could it be an maze attraction including actors with challenges or experience like I'm a celeb or could it be like Transformers Tour in the summer last year, or could it be something on the amity beach? Or it may be like X Factor filmed at Thorpe Park but for Aftersun:Love Island or Crackin' On After Love Island? Or it may be something smaller scaled such as screening the show at The Dome?.


What do you think it will be and do you like the idea that Love Island is coming to THORPE PARK!?


I personally think it is quite stupid although it will attract an audience and will be pretty pointless even though I watch Love Island myself and enjoy watching the show I dont think it will be liked by other people but we will have to wait and see what it is and if I and you enjoy whatever love island brings to the island like no other!.

All the feedback ive seen on facebook is negative everyone saying what on earth does is have to do with a theme park and that it makes the park trashy and I totally agree if this is the route they are going I'm glad I haven't visited the park in years.


It suits Thorpe to a tee these days.

Being an old fffffffffellow, it doesn't interest me and yes, I think too that it's very trashy.  The Company has not appeared to have been worried about relevance in the past, but more interested with the gimmick. Plenty of the young staff are very pleased that this association has been made.
