Drayton Manor Theme Park, Tamworth

Theme Park · Water / Amusement Park
No ordinary theme park, Drayton Manor Theme Park includes a resort area and a zoo with over 100 species from around the world. Covering over 110 hectares (280 acres), the park offers its two million annual visitors a variety of activities suitable for the whole family. Stop by to enjoy a ride on the Shockwave, Europe’s only stand-up roller coaster, or get your daily dose of adrenaline on the Apocalypse, a five-sided drop tower. Arguably the park’s most notable feature is Thomas Land, dedicated to the popular Thomas & Friends television show. This special section features children’s rides, live shows, Thomas & Friends exhibits, and indoor and outdoor play areas. Check online for discounts and special events. The park is open from mid-March through early November.

  • Finally after so long cooped up at home we have been aloud out as a family. Our 4 year old loved it and is now pooped and asleep. The park and its staff are Covid aware with some rides being...  more »
  • My 1 year old sons first trip to a theme park and it was awesome. We had a lovely day. The park is well managed, particularly at this time with Covid and it felt very safe. The staff are friendly...  more »
  • We have had season ticket since 2017 and always loved it. The focus is more to small kids which is good for us. We normally buy food when we go but the prices have sky rocketed!! And I mean double...  more »
  • Everything at this park was perfect! Every toilet was clean and hygienic, all the food was lovely and every ride was clean. All off the rides worked smoothly (despite the odd malfunction due to weather) and they were all thrilling! Every children's ride in Thomas Land was perfect for small children and when one of the trains stopped working the employee's were very nice and explained the reason why. The the zoo were all clearly well looked after which made it a pleasant trip in the zoo. Thank you for this wonderful day out it was brilliant!
  • Great place, lots to do. Only thing that let it down was a few (not all) of the staff weren't very friendly and acted like they didn't want to be there. On the whole a great day out. We made a night of it and stayed in the hotel next door as well. Which was fantastic. Great staff, room was lovely and a decent breakfast.
  • Good but could be great. We took 6 year old and 3 year old. Most of day was in Thomas Land with both able to go on majority of the rides. The roller coaster had the biggest queue at almost an hour by 1030. Lunch was actually a reasonable price for the 4 of us at £25 with pizza and pasta- more food than the kids could eat. Zoo was also great too. For 5 stars they need more details on ride queue times to help plan the day, either in the app on notice boards but at the very least on each ride.
  • Drayton Manor Theme Park, honoured the rainy day policy, had a lovely day. Family had a fab day, rides were excellent for my 16 year old , 14 year old and 18 month old. Enjoyed watching the Tigers being fed, the parrots were in full voice, and the monkeys were cheeky as ever. Fabulous day topped off by my son winning a cuddly, Thomas engine cuddly toy, ideal for my little one.
  • Thomas Land is fab for the little ones. A good variety of rides and activities for different ages. My 6 and 8 year old boys were suitably entertained. So why 3 stars? The rest of the park has so much too improve on. For our last visit 4 of the go-to rides were closed leaving very little for the elder folks in our party.
