“Loved it!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We went twice in 2 months with our then 18 month old little boy who absolutely loved it! We were worried it may have overwhelmed him but it well exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the hotel too which really made the whole experience! Can't wait to go back at Christmas!

“Grim”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Unhappy animals in a tired set of enclosures sours the whole experience. Couldn't help wondering if this little care is given to the zoo, how much attention is given to the safety of the rides etc. Some of the attractions feel past their sell by date.

“Better than Alton Towers.!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We love this park.! Excellent value for money as we had the 2 for 1 offer available at the time of our visit.
Our children are 15, 10 and 7 and they all find plenty of rides and attractions to suit their ages. Never a dull moment.
The Zoo needs some TLC but apart from that, it's defiantly a park to visit. The gift shops and food outlets are very reasonably priced which is good to see.
The staff are very pleasant and offered excellent customer service.
Can't wait to visit Christmas Time.

“Park very good, apart from the numbers of people”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Family day out to Drayton Manor during school holidays i suppose you should expect the crowds, never been to a theme park before so i was taken aback at the time we had to wait for each ride, well over an hour per ride, especially so with small children in the Thomas Land section. The zoo was very small but served a purpose in actually getting moving and walking around rather than being stood standing in a queue. Parts of the park looked like they needed a good clean, although it was my first visit so cannot comment on how long it has been like this. Glad we took our own packed lunches as the food on offer looked dreadful, unless you like treating your young ones to fried chicken, burgers and the like. Definitely worth going when the kids are back at school as i imagine you could jump on rides more quickly, my kids loved Thomas Land and it was the highlight of the park in my view. Easy to find off the toll road heading from Wrexham>Telford M54 direction, easy parking, overall a nice theme park but avoid school holidays if you possibly can,
