March 17, 2011 - PRLog -- The Hunt is on for a real life team of Ben 10 superheroes

Everyone likes to pretend they are a superhero now and again, but today Drayton Manor Theme Park is starting its own nationwide search for a set of real life ones named after the characters from hit Cartoon Network show Ben 10.

The tourist attraction near Tamworth, Staffordshire, is launching an appeal to find not just one, but a whole team of superheroes to officially open the park’s new ride, Europe’s first ever Ben 10 themed roller coaster – Ben 10: Ultimate Mission.

The superheroes in question will be the cartoon characters’ namesakes – Ben Tennyson, Kevin Levin, Gwen Tennyson and Grandpa Max Tennyson and anyone with those names can apply to become part of the park’s official team of superheroes.

The winning entries will be the guests of honour at the launch event on Friday 22nd April and will be tasked with unveiling the new ride to the public. They will be the first people to ride on it and will receive an annual pass allowing them free entry into the park for 12 months.

Ben 10 is the massively popular animated TV series produced by Cartoon Network, which follows the adventures of Ben Tennyson, who finds a watch-like device known as an Omnitrix that allows him to transform into various aliens, each with its own powers.

Colin Bryan, Drayton Manor’s Managing Director, said: “Ben 10: Ultimate Mission will be an exciting and interactive family attraction. We really want to find people with these names so they can become our park superheroes and get involved with the launch. We open this new ride at Easter so the countdown has now begun.”

If you are called Ben Tennyson, Gwen Tennyson, Kevin Levin or Grandpa Max Tennyson and would like to enter our search for a Ben 10 superhero, or perhaps the thought of getting a free annual pass encourages you to change your name officially, then send your details with proof of identity to Ben10@draytonmanor.co.uk to apply*. There are no age restrictions to this competition so a five year old Max Tennyson would still be eligible!

To book tickets, or for more information about the park, visit www.draytonmanor.co.uk or call 0844 472 1960. Reduced prices are available for tickets bought in advance.

Notes to Editor
Drayton Manor Theme Park is one of the UK’s most popular family attractions with over one million visitors a year. 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.
