No ordinary theme park, Drayton Manor Theme Park includes a resort area and a zoo with over 100 species from around the world. Covering over 110 hectares (280 acres), the park offers its two million annual visitors a variety of activities suitable for the whole family. Stop by to enjoy a ride on the Shockwave, Europe’s only stand-up roller coaster, or get your daily dose of adrenaline on the Apocalypse, a five-sided drop tower. Arguably the park’s most notable feature is Thomas Land, dedicated to the popular Thomas & Friends television show. This special section features children’s rides, live shows, Thomas & Friends exhibits, and indoor and outdoor play areas. Check online for discounts and special events. The park is open from mid-March through early November.

This was amazing. We spent 2 days in the park and couldn’t fault it at all. We can’t wait to return to see what Vikings is all about.

Just the happiest place. Amazing place to spend a few days. Especially the hotel staff - perfect! Just give the best service and now we have a child we enjoy it so much more! Thank you Drayton team for always out performing our expectations and showing what customer service should be. Can't wait to return! X
Amazing family day out. Great rides at Thomas Land, and didn't have to wait long for any of them. The zoo is small, but good (the Lynx and Fishing Cat were both very active and interesting today), and a very interesting reptile house. The dinosaur park is always a big hit. I was very pleased to see that the Thomas models (the original models from the TV show) had been given a good clean since we last went, as it was really sad to see them so neglected before. They've also added more of the models to the display so it's even better. The Santa experience was better this year than when we went 2 and 3 years ago (and we thought those were the best Santa experiences we'd had). This year in addition to meeting Santa we also had a story time with Mrs Christmas, and made reindeer food with an elf. The children also got to choose a toy this year from a selection. There wasn't a parade at the end of the Thomas Winter Wonderland today, which is a shame but probably due to covid. The parade 3 years ago was absolutely fantastic, with a story about the Fat Controller remembering the power of dreams and I wish that they bring this back in future years. The parade 2 years ago was a rather awful skit featuring Rusty and Dusty, filled will poor jokes and slapstick.
