Drayton Manor To Bring Smiles This Summer

Be ready for smiles this summer as Drayton Manor Park plans six weeks of Summer Sensation from Wednesday 25th July to Monday 3rd September at the Staffordshire-based attraction. 

With all to be revealed in the lead up to the summer months, keep your eyes peeled for brand new family events, a mix of money-saving offers and competitions as well as special surprises for the whole family to enjoy. 

There’s plenty at Drayton Manor to keep everyone happy this summer. Both the young and young at heart will be entertained in Europe’s only Thomas Land™, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and is home to more than 25 rides and attractions, such as the Troublesome Trucks Runaway Coaster, Jeremy Jets’ Flying Academy, and brand new in 2017, James and The Red Balloon. In addition to these family-friendly rides the park will also host live shows and entertainment from some of the little ones’ much-loved Thomas & Friends characters.

Thrill seekers can scream to their hearts’ content as they experience a host of adrenaline-pumping rides such as the head-turning gyro swing Maelstrom, the 54-metre tower drop Apocalypse and Shockwave, one of only two stand-Drayton Manor To Bring Smiles This Summerup coasters in Europe. Visitors looking for a quick refresh from the occasional ‘heat wave’ experienced during our British summer can enjoy the white-knuckle Stormforce 10 water ride!

If you’re planning to extend your visit into a staycation at the onsite, four-star Drayton Manor Hotel, secure your evening’s stay in a standard family room with a deposit of just £1 and help spread the cost this summer with the park’s exclusive Stay & Play offer.

For families with younger children, the magical experience of Thomas Land doesn’t have to end as Drayton Manor Hotel has 15 incredible Thomas & Friends themed rooms. Each child staying in a themed room also receives a complimentary Thomas & Friends goodie bag during their stay. For those without little ones, the hotel offers a well-deserved break in relaxing rooms with free Wi-Fi and an optional full English breakfast too.

Looking to take a short break from all the action in the theme park? The attraction offers the perfect escape with its on-site 15-acre zoo, home to an array of animals, including a cheeky Meerkat mob and adorable Red Pandas. For all the animal lovers, there will also be regular animal talks during the park’s Summer Sensation.

Drayton Manor is an all-weather attraction, ideal for all ages, as a value-for-money, memory-making day out. If the typical British weather takes a turn, attractions such as Emily’s Play Adventure, and the park’s 4D cinema showcasing Ice Age: No Time for Nuts, an immersive film new to the park for 2018, are conveniently located indoors.

When hunger strikes, no need to worry as there are a host of food choices at your fingertips, from burgers and pies to pizza and pasta, take your pick!
