Fortnite, Minecraft, FIFA and Apex Legends come to Thorpe Park for a limited time

Thorpe Park has opened up a brand new and limited time gaming area.

The first of four limited time events scheduled for 2019, GameFX is running from now until the end of May.

The GameFX area is an indoor space featuring a wide selection of new and classic consoles and games.

PS4 and Xbox One releases like Forza Horizon 4, Spyro Trilogy, Crash Bandicoot Trilogy, Minecraft, FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 are all playable in the arena.

That’s on top of retro games and consoles like the Sega Mega Drive, SNES, Dreamcast, Gamecube and PS2. 

Gaming fans looking to experience something a bit different can also try out a variety of virtual reality games.

One of the more popular titles to try is the excellent Richie’s Plank Experience, which sees users face their fear of heights atop a skyscraper.

“Join us over in the gaming arena for our brand new GameFX powered by HYPD!” reads a Thorpe Park post.

“Practice your eSports skills across multiple consoles and games, immerse yourself in nostalgia as you reignite your childhood in the retro gaming area and defy your senses and push yourself to the limit as you engage with the latest virtual reality tech.”

But it’s the eSports tournaments that are arguably the most appealing aspect of GameFX.

Fans of games like Fortnite, FIFA and Apex Legends will be able to compete in tournaments to win some swag.

Celebrity influencers are also scheduled to appear at GameFX over the course of its run.

GameFX will be followed by more limited time attractions, beginning with Jungle Escape in May.

The jungle-themed escape room tasks teams with solving puzzles and completing physical tasks in order to emerge victorious.

This will be followed by a 90m inflatable “BounceZilla” course from the end of May until September, before Fright Night returns for in time for Halloween.
