Drayton Manor

Everyone’s favourite theme park, packed with a host of great rides and attractions set in 280 acres of lakes and parkland. Drayton Manor features some of the biggest, wettest and scariest rides around! Apocalypse is the world’s first stand up tower drop. Shockwave is Europe’s only stand up rollercoaster. Stormforce 10 is ‘the best water ride in the country’ (Daily Express). Maelstrom is the only gyro swing to make you face outwards! Pandemonium turns your world upside down!

And the incredible G-Force is a rollercoaster ride like you’ve never had before! This £3 million ride takes terrified thrillseekers through a series of high banked twists and turns at speeds of up to 70 kph at 4.3 Gs, whilst hanging by the hip!

There’s also a host of fantastic family entertainment with Excalibur – a Dragon’s Tale, the Pirate Adventure, Drayton Manor’s live theatres - and the Drunken Barrels is fantastic new fun for all the family! Thomas Land is packed with rides just for younger children.

Drayton Manor Zoo is home to over a hundred species from throughout the world – plus Dinosaurland, museums, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants – and much more! It’s a fantastic fun-filled day for everyone!

Thomas Land – For the first time in Europe, Thomas and Friends will have their very own home at Drayton Manor Park!
