It’s official – Derren Brown is behind Thorpe Park’s 2016 investment.
The illusionist has spent 3 years working with a team of 1000 experts to create the world’s first “psychological” attraction.
The attraction will last 13 minutes and utilise “next generation cutting-edge technology”, according to divisional director Mike Vallis.
It will be the park’s biggest investment to date, and marketing has already begun under the banner: “Minds Wanted”.
Derren Brown said of the attraction: “The process of creating this new experience has been the most challenging of my career – so much so that it has taken us three years to get the project on track. You can look forward to a heady mix of magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship.”
“This is a major first for the industry and it might be the future of theme parks. We are moving toward a future where attractions not only give you a physical experience but also play with your mind and the concept of what is real.”
