William Bryan, Managing Director at Drayton Manor Park said: “We understand that families enjoy spending time together but don’t want to spend a fortune in the process, so we try to keep our costs as low as possible, especially over the school holidays. Our continuing expansion plays tribute to the loyalty of our customers and our ethos to provide them with the best day out possible.”
What’s more, the park also offers a rainy day guarantee, so those who fall victim to the unpredictable British weather in August can return free of charge in September 2016.**
Those looking to grab a last minute bargain can also take advantage of the park’s Season Pass sale which is now on. Visitors can purchase a 2016 Season Pass (for those aged four plus) which is valid until Friday 28th October for just £45, a saving of £25! With a Season Pass, guests can enjoy unlimited access to the park, 20% off retail and catering outlets, discount vouchers for family and friends, exclusive access to competitions throughout the season and much more!***
The family owned and run theme park is host to a wide variety of attractions. Thrill seekers can enjoy the adrenaline rush of Maelstrom, Pandemonium, G-Force and Apocalypse. For the smaller members of the group, Thomas Land™ offers a magical experience with Thomas and his friends. Last years’ £2.5million expansion in Thomas Land saw the introduction of three new rides and Sodor Airport Terminal.
Families can enhance their experience with a visit to the new high rope adventure challenge VertiGO, the newest addition to the park. Guests don’t have to enjoy a day in the theme park to experience VertiGO but those that do can upgrade to a session for the same price as the advanced bookings.****
Those brave enough, can test their nerves and visit the park’s resident creepy crawlies in the 15-acre Zoo, home to many creatures including the Mexican Red-Knee Tarantula and Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches. Those with a preference for fewer legs should make stopping by the exotic birds a priority; their array of bright colours and inquisitive nature will be to the enjoyment of everyone.
