Drayton Manor partners with Nimbus Disability, operators of the Access Card scheme, to assess and manage applications for our Essential Companion tickets. Nimbus Disability is one of the country’s leading providers of disability-related advice and support to professional organisations and is recognised as a lead authority on accessible ticketing in the UK. They are an award-winning organisation run by disabled people who specialise in the legislation behind The Equality Act.
We recognise that for some guests, accessing a ride via a conventional queue line can be challenging, either due to mobility issues or for example as a result of difficulties with everyday social interaction. For guests who are unable to enter a ride in the usual way, you will need to apply for a Nimbus Access card using the link below to qualify for the Easy Access service. Please note, the Easy Access service will be soley for the guest with additional needs and their companion.

Guidance for Guests with Missing Limbs
All guests with missing limbs should visit the link above and complete the Nimbus assessment. Once you have been issued with your Nimbus assessment card please visit our guest services office to be issued with tailored guidance on each individual attraction which will form their own personalised Easy Access Card.
All assessments are completed by our partners at Nimbus, no assessments will be completed on the day and must done in advance. If you have any enquiries regarding the assessment process or the access card please contact Nimbus directly via this email address email@example.com.
Access Bands allow the guest who is unable to use the conventional queue line to enter a ride via the ride’s exit gate. Please note this is not a fast track pass, it is for ease of access only. THERE WILL STILL BE AN ELEMENT OF QUEUING.
It is important that we carefully manage the issuing and use of Access Bands to ensure that the number of people using ride exit gates is kept to a minimum.
