The arrival of a brand new Thomas & Friends™ ride, fantastic 2013 money saving offers, a rainy day guarantee and much, much more means this summer at Drayton Manor Theme Park is set to be better than ever before.
All pre-booked tickets* for visits between Saturday 20th July and Sunday 1st September will benefit from sensational summer savings, with all adult tickets (ages 12+) costing just £20, saving over 44% on the gate price and child tickets (ages 4 – 11) priced at £15, saving over 45% on the standard price. Ticket prices for 2 – 3 year olds cost £5.00, whilst under 2s go free.
A new ride, Winston’s Whistle Stop Tour, has launched to celebrate Thomas Land’s™ fifth anniversary, but not forgetting the other 20 rides and attractions in Thomas Land to entertain Thomas & Friends enthusiasts. But if it is big thrills you want, then Drayton Manor has plenty, from Apocalypse, voted the UK’s scariest ride by Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, to G-Force and skin-soaking Stormforce 10. However, if you’re looking for something more sedate, the 15-acre zoo is home to over 100 animal species.
After working up an appetite, families can take advantage of some enticing offers, including a family of four meal deal for just £22.00, an all-day refillable drink for just £6.00 and a healthy kids’ packed lunch for just £3.95, which contains a cheese or ham roll, with Quavers, a kids juice and a fruit bag**.
Don’t let the British weather dampen your spirits if you’re planning a day out at the park either, as it will be operating its successful rainy day guarantee. This promises to give visitors who have pre-booked tickets a free return trip if it rains continuously for a minimum of two hours during their time at the park***.
For visitors travelling from further afield or simply looking to turn a day trip into an overnight stay, there’s also the onsite luxurious four-star Drayton Manor Hotel. It has 150 bedrooms, including 15 Thomas & Friends themed family rooms. It’s newest addition is an outdoor play area that includes a swinging horse, a cradle-nest swing, a hexagonal swing, a jack straw see-saw and a three-metre high climbing structure – perfect for younger visitors.
