Had an good day at Drayton manor zoo isn't as good as it used to be and most of the rides are now just for kids. The rides we did go on we enjoyed but for £36 for a ticket I won't rush back

We love going to Drayton Manor, we especially love Thomas Land for my little ones! I did notice on this visit pretty much every member of staff that supervised the rides were so miserable! None of them smiled or looked helpful at all! I know waiting on rides all day can get tiresome but it's what they get paid to... More

We took our 2 kids aged 6 and 10. I have two major criticisms. The first is what is the point of opening the gates at 09:30 when the rides dont start until 10:30. The second was the reptile house in the zoo. One of the cuban boas had retained eye caps on both eyes. I'm an experienced herpetologist so... More

When I first phoned DM a few weeks ago they said we wouldn't be able to come because of 10 yr old DDs broken arm. However, I phoned back & asked if they'd email me their policy re broken bones/casts etc & they did. There are actually only three rides you can't go on (Apocalypse, Maelstrom & Pandemonium). A few... More

We stayed at the Drayton Manor Campsite from Thursday to Sunday and visited the theme park on the Friday. I am glad we chose the Friday as the weekend was much busier. The Campsite is lovely. A smaller site than we have visited before. On the Thursday and Friday it was very quiet and peaceful. It got busy over the... More

It doesn't matter how old you are there will be a ride for you! Great park the do open at 9:30 but the rides don't start until 10:30 so only thing to do is walk around the zoo which in my option is the only disappointing part tithe animals didn't seem to be top priority com paired to some zoos,...

Overall a good day out - some queues were very long but we got to go on all the rides we wanted to well within closing time.

Great day out worth every penny,we go every year a large group of us with lots of different aged children. Children can go on most rides if little with an adult,Thomas land is great,we take a picnic as food is expensive like anywhere. Lots of shops,toilets and restaurants dotted around the site. Excellent day out!

Visited here with my 5 & 7 yr olds. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Not quite as good as Alton towers but still enjoyed. Didn't have to wait long for rides (even though it was school hols), took picnic with us. No problems, staff pleasant, would visit again.
