This is the second time I visited the Drayton Manor theme park. Trying to utilise the annual pass that I got last time around. Despite visiting the second time, it is still enjoyable and fun.
This time I managed to get on Stormforce 10. Word of advice, make sure you have spare clothing or water poncho. You going to get soaking wet especially you are seating in front.
It is definitely worth visiting.

We have been here many times before as a family and I recommend it to anyone with a young family.

Disappointed to find that they have now followed the trend of charging to park which costs £3.

Thomas land is fantastic for young kids. They get to meet all their favourite characters. They are in the process of expanding Thomas land which will be fantastic.

The other rides in the park are enjoyable. It's great to see charities such as the local air ambulance and RNLI used as themes for rides. Storm force 10 is the RNLI ride when you see the sign saying "you will get very wet" they aren't joking BE WARNED there is no escape from the water, we came off soaked from head to toe but laughing at the experience.

This is a very good family theme park and I highly recommend it.

Me, my wife and 2 year old visited this theme park for thomasland. We stayed for 2 days and 1 night in the on site hotel. The hotel was lovely, still looks new and really clean. The staff were really helpful and our little boy loved pressing the carousel thomas button in reception. Breakfast was lovely and included in the price. We also had a pub lunch across the road on the evening which was lovely and not badly priced.

The Theme park itself was good for what we wanted which was Thomas Land which our little boy loved. We go to Disney in Florida often and for all it is not Disney it is still great. There is not a lot of rides and the faster rides had more of a longer queue but most of the rides had longish queues. The zoo was OK but nothing spectacular.

We loved it and Thomas land is worth the visit alone.

Only visited Thomasland. Very good for little ones. Nice photo packages to remember the day. Recommend the next day return pass if you want to do the whole park as it was a bit too big to get round in one day with the ques. The zoo wasnt great but the childrens play area indoor and outdoor were a big hit with our 2yr old. Would return.

I haven't been to Drayton Manor since I was a kid and was looking for something fun to do with the family so thought that we would give it a go. At the time of the visit my children were 7 and 9; probably a bit too old for Thomas land and a bit too young for some of the big rides. That being said, we did manage to fill a full day at the park going from ride to ride after initially visiting the zoo which was a bit of a disappointment (looking a bit tired with only a small selection of animals). On the whole we didn't spend too much time queueing but we didn't go on many of the major rides. As all the rides are free with the ticket price the park is good value for money and as stated, we did fill a whole day. Highlights of the day included the Ben 10 Roller-coaster and Splash Canyon.
