No visit to Drayton Manor Park would be complete without a gentle ride on the Big Wheel. This classic ride, which has been a favourite at Drayton since 1986, will delight both young and old with views across the park and beyond.

Climb into one of the gondolas, which will stay upright as the wheel turns, and enjoy an exciting journey into the air before completing a full circle. Each gondola holds six people, meaning the whole family can enjoy the ride together. Whether you enjoy the Big Wheel as a break from the big thrill rides, want to see an amazing view, or simply want to enjoy a timeless ride, this classic attraction won't fail to make an impression.
