“Fantastic day out for kids even the younger ones plenty to do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We visited here and it was an hour away from our house
This was the first time we had visited drayton manor as we have a thomas fan in our family
We managed to get some buy one get one free tickets for the 6 of us
And I must say I would pay full price there was no queues for the rides and every ride I must say was a good one
They's. even have a zoo if you've had enough of the thrills
Well worth the visit and I will be coming back this year
I can't believe we had never gone before and only went because of the thomas land for my little boy but there is so much more
And make sure you take a visit into the thomas shop they have absouloutly everything for a mad thomas fan my little one thought all his birthdays had come at once

“Fab day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Wicked day out for the whole family. Kids aged 11 & 7 both love it here. Whether its the thrill rides or Thomas land or the farm or the zoo they love it all. The xmas thomas day out is great for younger kids. Very magical with fake snow etc. Highly recommended

“Fun family day out1”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Drayton Manor theme park is best for children, as they have a whole "land" dedicated to children, called Thomas Land. Children love this, as there is a range of rides they can sit on and there is also shows done by the staff at the thomas land entrance. There is also adult rides, but not as many as there are for children. However, the adult rides do have a distinctive feature that other rides may not offer. For example, Shockwave is like a half sitting/half standing rollercoaster-very fast, and stormforce 10 has a backwards water drop!
Drayton Manor theme park also has a zoo, allowing those toddlers to young for rides to enjoy the day too.
Overall, it is probably best classed as a familt theme park, with something for everyone.

“Great day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Visited back in the summer unfortunately the first day we arrived the park was closed due to thunder storms, lucky enough we were staying in the area for a few days. A great day but not great if raining as nothing is under cover. Food poor would suggest a pack lunch. Was a bit disgruntled at the que to get in especially when the girl sharing the ticket booth was playing solitaire on the computer! My 2 year old loved it and there were lots of rides he could go on. Dinosaur walk through was also very good. Would go back.

“christmas thomas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

christmas thomas was good but had to wait over a hour in the freezing cold with two small children to see santa and that was with a time slot?
we have been other times and out of order to charge for parking when you pay enough like thomas land but rest poor mans alton towers
