William Bryan, Managing Director at Drayton Manor Theme Park, comments: “With families choosing to stay at home this year, we wanted to introduce a clear and easy to use offer for our visitors as a thank you for the support over the 65 years we have been open.

“The school holidays have now begun and families are looking for ways to enjoy spending time together without it costing a fortune. We pride ourselves on offering a value for money day out for everyone. We have expanded the Thomas Land™ attraction this year as well as continuing to invest in the park itself so are confident that visitors will have a fantastic day filled with memories.”

Drayton Manor Theme Park is home to some amazing rides and attractions for all ages. Thomas Land™, is bigger and better than ever before after undergoing a £2.5million expansion earlier in the year that saw the arrival of three brand new rides plus a stunning Sodor Airport terminal. There is also a number of thrill rides such as Apocalypse, G-Force, Shockwave and Maelstrom sure to appeal to older children and adrenaline junkies.

Also new for the 2015 season is Yogi Bear, a funny and exciting animated film experience packed full of special effects, which is screened in the park’s sensational 4D Cinema.

But that’s not all as the park’s popular mascot, Rory the Lion, promises to entertain and delight visitors young and old during the whole summer holiday season, until 6th September. Live shows will be performed at regular intervals throughout the day and they guarantee a ‘roarsome’ time!
