One of the UK’s favourite family theme parks, Drayton Manor Park in Staffordshire offers something for everyone, with a wonderful selection of amazing rides suitable for all ages. Make sure you plan a trip to create fun family memories during 2020.
With thrill rides such as adrenaline-inducing 54m drop-tower Apocalypse, stand-up coaster Shockwave, stomach-churning Maelstrom and so many more, you will need to allow plenty of time to enjoy all of the fantastic rides.
The family-run attraction includes Europe’s only Thomas Land™, which welcomed the arrival of brand new ride James and the Red Balloon for the 2017 season. Based on the beloved Thomas and Friends™ character James and his cheeky antics with a red hot-air balloon, visitors to the park this summer can experience the magic of Sodor like never before as they fly up, up and away in their very own balloon. Thomas Land is also celebrating its 10th anniversary, so make sure you keep up to date with all the wonderful Thomas & Friends themed events happening throughout the year.
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!
To fully appreciate all that the park and zoo has to offer, 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. They include a one-night stay with a full English breakfast, free Wi-Fi and car parking on site, plus one ticket per person into Drayton Manor Park. Choose from a range of rooms including 15 Thomas and Friends bedrooms so the little ones can experience the magic all evening.
