ITV Studios Global Entertainment has today announced a partnership between hit action TV show Thunderbirds Are Go and Gulliver’s Theme Park Resorts.

The promotional activation will run over several weekends from 14 September through to 20 October at all three Gulliver’s Theme Park Resort locations in Warrington, Milton Keynes and Matlock Bath.

The FAB Thunderbird Weekends will see Thunderbirds Are Go theming throughout the theme park resorts, and visitors will receive a mission brief on arrival to complete very special in-park challenges as recruits for International Rescue. Other activities will include photo opportunities with a huge model of Thunderbird 1 and meet and greets with the Virgil Tracy costume character.

Julie Dalton, Managing Director at Gulliver’s Theme Park Resorts says: “We are about much more than rides at Gulliver’s: we promote families spending quality time together and every generation knows the Thunderbirds. The partnership with Thunderbirds Are Go is a brilliant addition to our very popular stay and play packages and entertainment within the Theme Parks. We are really looking forward to hosting the new activities and in-park challenges.”

Overnight guests during any of the FAB Thunderbird Weekends will receive even more Tracy Island treatment, with FAB Thunderbird Sleepovers including a special Thunderbird 1 launch mission, exclusive meet and greets with Virgil, and much more.

FAB Thunderbird Weekends will form a part of the festivities around Thunderbirds Day, an annual celebration of the Thunderbirds franchise on 30 September, for fans of all generations.
