We came on Friday 12th September, it's was so quiet!! We came for Thomas land as we have a 2 and a half year old. Oh Crikey, he LOVED it and is still talking about it. The most we waited for anything was 5 minutes. The Emily indoor play area is great but you can only play for 15 minutes.... More

Went with the family and my young niece. Two of the party did not use the rides although they still had to pay £36 each. Lucky we printed half prices tickets. Some of the rides need a little love and attention and the Zoo needs an overhaul completely with more animals and the farm has nothing except racoons Guinea pig... More

We traveled over 100 miles only to be turned away because the park we were told was closed to the general public as there was a corporate event booked for the day,needless to say all 16 of us were not happy bunnies. Let this be a warning please check before you go !!! Sunday the 14th of September

Arrived at DM not knowing what to expect. It was very small in comparison to other theme parks we have been to both in the UK and US. You could walk end to end in around 5 minutes. As an adult I was underwhelmed, however my 6 year old really enjoyed it. Being tall for their age at 1.3 meters,... More

Normally, I don’t have a very positive view of theme parks. The more popular ones are usually overcrowded and you seem to spend more time queueing for the rides than actually riding them. This isn’t the case at Drayton Manor, though. We visited in the middle of August, and there were many people there, but it didn’t feel crowded, and... More

Theme park doesn't take long to get round and occupies a small area. Thought the zoo was very tired looking and enclosures were small and lacked stimulation. Tiger had arrived but was closed whilst he settled. I think they seriously need to consider just focussing on the theme park.

Where do I start? The best way I can describe my experience of this 'theme park' is eerie, like something out of a Scooby Doo scene! I always wanted to visit here so decided to visit last minute as we had been at Alton Towers for a couple of days. It was nothing like I imagined. The whole place needs... More

As a bit of a thrill-seeker nut, I've been to all the big theme parks in the UK, and for a days outing, I have to say that Drayton Manor is top of my list. Sure, the food isn't great, but you don't go there just for the food. It's a decent size park, but not so big that you... More

We did the adult and toddler offer on the gate for £20. Only gripe was paying £3 for parking which they have you ovet a barrel for really don't they?! Thomas land for our 3 year old boys was out of this world and so exciting. We literally spent the whole day going from ride to ride just walking on,... More

Great place to go and great for the kids. Lot of things to do and Thomas land is just fab for my 3 and 2 year olds. The only let down was the food.The out lets are run but middle age women who just dont care and the price is over the top for what it is. Try longwood pub... More
