thorpe park were offering 2000 tickets at 12p to celebrate the opening of this online,but as people waited to snap them up at 10am when the deal opened, an online glitch meant they went on sale at 9.58 so they were all sold out by 10am for people who had been waiting,a lot of angry people
What did Thorpe Park say?
Thorpe Park has apologised individually on Twitter to those who complained.
A spokesman adds: "The 12p ticket sales page was set to go live for 10am. A tech fault meant it went live a few minutes earlier. Tickets sold out.
"The promotion was conducted on a first come first served basis. There are no further tickets available at 12p. They are now sold out as there was limited availability.
"Demand was anticipated to be high for this offer; we expected tickets would sell out fast. We were aware that there was always going to be disappointment as it was a limited offer.
"But despite this we want to be able to offer our guests exclusive deals such as the 12p ticket and worked hard to get the website ready to deal with demand and increased the bandwidth of the website to avoid any crashing. In setting the new page live which was loaded for 10am, it went live slightly earlier.

Blackpool was caught out a little bit by yesterdays high tide, to be fair the flood deference worked well... :thumbup1:

I have a selection of images to show how dangerous the high tides can be in around the Fylde   coast.. :scared:





















Quite a nasty place to be if you fell in.. :thumbdown:








Not the smartest place to stand..!
