Society Spotlight: Reading University Theme Park Society

For those with the taste for the dynamic and enchanting atmospheres at theme parks, or avid thrill-seekers, we give students the opportunity to discover and experience the exciting attractions that the UK has to offer.   

Previously known as the Roller Coaster Appreciation Society, we have rebranded ourselves this year to share our passion by running trips to a wide variety of theme parks and attractions nationwide, and with theme park season just around the corner, our society is about to get very interesting!

Our previous events have included a wide collection of attractions, including Thorpe Park, Chessington, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Alton Towers. Our first trip of the year was held at the London Dungeon, of which proved a huge success with our new members who had not experienced this unique attraction before.

Trips are always catered with students in mind, offering discounted prices for all visits. These are organised primarily on our private Facebook group, where we will always ask for feedback from our members as to which events they would like to see next. Future trips planned for this year include Thorpe Park and Alton Towers, alongside smaller parks including Oakwood Theme Park. These have proven very popular from past events, giving students the perfect opportunity to try something different, or even ride their first roller coaster!

We’re incredibly thankful for the response we have had from students so far, and we cannot wait to run more trips in the future – so why not give one a try? Membership is free and open to all students and non-students. We’re a very friendly bunch and are always excited to meet new members and fellow enthusiasts alike!

So whether you are a dedicated theme park fan, or a roller coaster virgin, we offer something for everyone who wants to give our trips a try. If you would like to find out more about us, you can find us on Facebook or on the RUSU website. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with one of us. Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far – we look forward to seeing you on our next trip!
