Drayton Manor News

Thomas Land at Drayton Manor will welcome a new family ride for 2017 to mark further expansion to the thriving attraction.

James and the Red Balloon, set to delight visitors from Saturday 1st April 2017, is based on the beloved Thomas and Friends™ character James and his naughty antics with a red hot air balloon. James will be joining the 20 other rides and attractions based on the popular series. Families can experience the magic of Sodor like never before as they fly up, up and away in their very own balloon.

Face your VertiGO on the new high rope adventure course at Drayton Manor, and with VertiGo Tots for younger adventurers there is something for all ages.

You don't have to be visiting the theme park to have a go on VertiGO and therefore the attraction is not included in theme park admission, but prices start at just £5 for VertiGO and £3 for VertiGO Tots.

This spring, visitors to Drayton Manor can expect even more monkey business at the theme park's 15-acre Zoo, with the addition of a brand new Tamarin Trail for 2016.

The Tamarin Trail will take adventurers through beautiful planted gardens, allowing children and adults alike to come face to face with a troop of mischievous monkeys. During the trail adventure, guests will be able to get up close and personal with the cute and inquisitive Tamarins and Marmosets, including the White Lipped Tamarin, Red Handed Tamarin, Emperor Tamarin, Cotton Top Tamarin and the Common Marmoset, housed across eight different enclosures. 

The Haunting at Drayton Manor has received a face lift for 2016, undergoing renovation work to improve the experience for visitors.

The spooky haunted house, which originally opened in 1996, has had remedial works carried out to enhance it, so that it can continue to thrill and terrify the park's visitors in 2016.

Drayton Manor Theme Park, home of Thomas Land™, will be opening for February Half Term, and to celebrate we are giving you the chance to win a family ticket.

Families looking for a day out this February Half Term need look no further, as Drayton Manor is gearing up to welcome its visitors for a bumper week with selected rides open, including all of Thomas Land™, the 4D Cinema, Jolly Buccaneer, Carousel, Dodgems and Ben 10 - Ultimate Mission.
