Drayton Manor is the ideal place for an unforgettable family day out! It is undoubtedly one of the UK’s best attractions and is one of the most popular theme park in the country, with over one million visitors each year and some of the biggest, wettest and scariest rides around! That means there is plenty to keep even the most extreme thrill-seeker happy. The Shock Wave, for example, is the only stand-up roller coaster in Europe and reaches speeds of up to 53 mph, whilst Apocalypse drops those who dare to try it 177 feet in just four seconds! No wonder it was voted Britain’s scariest ride by Channel 4’s The Gadget Show.
But Drayton Manor is not just for adrenaline junkies! Younger children are guaranteed to love Thomas Land — a special area of the park brilliantly themed around Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends. This features 21 child friendly rides and attractions from the hit TV series Thomas and Friends™, as well as a spectacular indoor play area. Plus, don’t forget to explore Drayton Manor Zoo, home to over 100 different species from around the world, and to experience the extraordinary 4D Cinema! All this and more awaits at Drayton Manor, the perfect place to spend some quality family time this summer.
The park itself is set in around 280 acres of beautiful woodland and countryside and continues to be family owned and operated. On site you will find an abundance of great shops and restaurants, including the new Grill Inn Family Restaurant — situated just outside the park, this is a high-quality place to eat that prides itself on making the most of delicious local produce.
