For the young and young at heart, there’s the magic of Sodor to experience in Europe’s first and only Thomas Land™, featuring 12 rides based on popular Thomas & Friends™ characters and an indoor and outdoor play area.

For fans of the little blue engine and his friends, a visit to the recently extended Thomas Land shop is essential. Having nearly doubled in size, the shop stocks hundreds of different items, including toys, clothing and collectables, making it one of the biggest retail outlets selling Thomas the Tank Engine™ merchandise. There is now a range of Thomas Land stock for fans of this popular attraction.

For thrill seekers, the park is home some of the biggest, wettest, and scariest rides around including Stormforce 10, The Bounty, G-Force, Maelstrom, and Apocalypse.

For animal lovers, Drayton Manor Zoo is a fantastic place to explore, with over one hundred different species, including twelve rare breeds from across the world. Those who visit the park will be in for a May Day treat this weekend as they will be amongst the first to meet some of the zoos newest residents, including meerkat babies, marmoset babies, and a pair of racoons.

Notes to Editor
Drayton Manor Theme Park is one of the UK’s most popular family attractions with over one million visitors a year. This year, the park is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee. Drayton Manor was first opened to the public by the current owners, the Bryan family, in 1950 after husband and wife co-founders, George, OBE, and Vera Bryan, converted 80 acres of derelict land, which once belonged to the former British Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel and his family, into a wonderful family attraction. Today, set in approximately 280 acres of beautiful woodland and countryside, the family owned and run Drayton Manor Theme Park features some of the biggest, wettest and scariest rides around, including Shock-wave, G-force, Maelstrom, and Apocalypse, as well as a 15-acre zoo, the hugely popular Thomas Land™ attraction, and a 4D Cinema.
