Drayton Manor Park is a fun packed day out whatever the age of children or adults. With our two being aged three and four we chose to spend the whole day at Thomas Land and we were certainly not disappointed.
The rides were all characters from Thomas The Tank Engine or scenes from the series. I was pleasantly surprised that visiting at the height of the summer, the queues were still bearable. If you like rollercoasters, make sure you hop on that one first as the queue is very long for that ride.
The Airport café is situated on the heart of Thomas Land and we ate breakfast and lunch there. The food was delicious and they sold a great selection of cakes. The staff were all very friendly and they had great interaction with the children. Even for Thomas Land, some of the rides were advanced for our three year old but her favourite was riding on Rosie the train which we did to get to the other area of Thomas Land where all the animals are.
We didn’t look around the animals at all as we wanted to spend our day with Thomas fun filled activities. I believe there are some great animals there to see though. We also managed to get on Thomas the train which the children loved as well as meeting the Fat Controller. Throughout our visit, Drayton Manor Park was immaculately clean and toilets plentiful and clean.
At the end of the day we had a ride on the Horse Carousel in the main park which was good fun but time had run out to ride on any of the other rides. There are some very inviting looking rides in the main park for both children and thrill seekers. A great day out for all the family and we will definitely be visiting Drayton Manor Park again soon.
