Thorpe Park announces discounted tickets for 18-24 year olds who register to vote

We don’t really do political posts here at Bad Wilf, however, this one is just too cool not to share.

In a bid to encourage the younger generation to hit the polls on June 8th, Thorpe Park will be offering anyone aged 18-24 the chance to purchase entrance tickets for £20 if they can prove they have registered to vote.

 Dominic Jones, Divisional Director at Thorpe Park, said:

  We often hear young people are disengaged from politics, but a large number of our guests have shown an interest in politics, world events and social issues. However there are still a large number abstaining from voting in political elections.  Young people are just as concerned about the financial future as any other person.

The Park encourages their young audience to send in suggestions to the political leaders as part of their #YVC campaign, Your Vote Counts. They will be collating all videos submitted on social media by guests and sending them to political party leaders.
