One of the UK’s favourite family theme parks, a day out at Drayton Manor Resort in Staffordshire has something for everyone. Highlights include a wonderful selection of amazing theme park rides suitable for all ages.
Thrill rides feature the adrenaline-inducing 54m drop-tower Apocalypse, stand-up coaster Shockwave, stomach-churning Maelstrom and so many more. The family-run attraction also includes Europe’s only Thomas Land™, which includes James and the Red Balloon, based on beloved Thomas and Friends™ character James and his cheeky antics with a red hot-air balloon.
Meanwhile, the park’s impressive 15-acre zoo is home to exotic animals such as a pair of Sumatran tigers, monkeys and primates, a meerkat mob, as well as various birds of prey and reptiles. Follow the zoo’s Tamarin Trail to find yourself face to face with inquisitive and mischievous tamarins and marmosets or simply sit back and enjoy one of the various outdoor play areas right in the heart of the Zoo. See if you can spot the Red Panda, Sulawesi Crested Macaques and some very cute Dik Diks as well!
Other attractions include crazy golf, a collection of penny slot machines, an indoor play area and the Dino Trail – find yourself face to face with some prehistoric friends!
Finally, Stay and Play packages are the perfect way to combine a day in the park with an overnight stay in the on-site, 4 Star, Drayton Manor Hotel.
