2 min read

Each individual one particular loves Thomas the Tank Engine.

If you are studying this and shouting ‘no’ out loud, then this review may possibly not be for you.

On the other hand, the Wilson family determined to consider a vacation to Drayton Manor, in close proximity to Tamworth to experience the full pleasure of Thomas and Mates in lifestyle dimensions structure alternatively than on the tellybox.

It was the to start with time I experienced been to the park, though the wife experienced been on a school vacation quite a few moons in the past.

1st activities ended up quite good. Car or truck parking was nice and uncomplicated and there ended up tiny queues to choose up the tickets – even although some friends struggled to comprehend signs which pointed ticket holders to the most important gate alternatively than the booths if they ended up already in possession of them.

We experienced turned up on a working day that could only be classed as ‘end-of-term-thank-you-take care of-for-pupils’. It was hectic but thankfully, quite a few of the pupils ended up not fascinated in Thomas the Tank Engine.

The award-successful ‘Thomas Land’ at the park underwent a massive expansion in 2015 and contains far more than 25 rides and attractions.

You can capture a experience on Thomas, Percy or Rosie as nicely as love firm favourites such as Cranky Crane, and Harold Helicopter Tours.

I was sceptical if my two-year-old would go on any of the rides. But just after one particular experience of Jeremy Jet’s Flying Academy he was hooked. So substantially so he fell more than his possess toes in pleasure heading to the Toby the Tram experience.

This resulted in a speedy stop by to the to start with assist area, where by the procedure was to start with course for a bump on the head.

Of class Drayton Manor is not just about Thomas and his good friends.

The park contains eleven higher adrenaline rides, which owing to the tiny little ones current, intended only one particular of them – G-Drive – was tried out.

I love a good rollercoaster and this was definitely good. Anything at all that effects in remaining lifted out of your seat is a winner for me.

A pleasant neck bashing experience just after taking pleasure in the relative relaxed and serenity of Bertie Bus in ‘Thomas Land’.

We savored a spot of lunch in the park – pie and mash (regardless of it remaining 26 degrees) – which was moderately priced and quite delicious. Drinks ended up a touch on the costly side intellect, practically £3 for a substantial delicate drink.

For tickets, setting up at £25 for more than 12s, and £20 for 4 to eleven year olds, and for far more information, stop by draytonmanor.co.british isles.
