As well as a state pension and a bus pass, over 65s now have something a little bit more exciting to look forward to - as a UK theme park now offers them half-price entry.

Thorpe Park's new Old Aged Coaster (OAC) day-pass allows pensioners 50% off their entry, and some have already been down to enjoy it...

The squad arrived prepared for anything.


They took things easy at first, enjoying a water ride.
