Great for little ones
Oct 2021 • Family
Great for the family as a whole. Two kids aged 3.5yrs and two adults. We had a lot of fun in Thomas Land and on a few other rides.

Brilliant day out, super staff and clean theme park
Oct 2021 • Family
Had to write a review today to say what a wonderful time we have just had. Visited with our 4 year old and 8 year old and the whole experience was so positive. No queues (as we were on a different half term to other counties!), all well maintained/ no litter, immaculately clean toilets everywhere and rides all close together so kids didn’t get too tired walking round. The Halloween displays/ props around the park really enhanced the visit too, lots of great photo opps! But the most positive thing about Drayton Manor today was the staff, every single one we encountered was helpful, friendly and great with our kids. One lady was so kind when my daughter was crying after getting a bit scared on a kiddie rollercoaster- she really cheered her up by saying that she’d seen even adults cry after that ride and told me daughter how brave she was for having gone on it. Another helpful friendly staff member offered to look after our two kids so my husband could ride on shockwave with me as he and his colleagues had noticed that I was alone. Dusty and Rusty in Thomas Land were also super friendly and great with our kids, and everyone else just seemed happy to help/ answer questions/ give us directions. My children really enjoyed the day and are already asking when we can go back!

Lovely family day out
Oct 2021 • Family
Just back home after a great day out at Drayton Manor. After reading some of the reviews before we went I would also agree it's not a cheap day out especially if you pay on the day however I wouldn't say it is any more pricy than similar attractions (also you can use Tesco clubcard vouchers for part of the price)

When we went we had no queues from any of the rides, meaning we did everything we could several times! The staff were fantastic and were both helpful and friendly (they seemed to get a beating in other reviews).

We didn't buy food as we took a picnic and that was great as they have plenty of places that you can use.

My only criticism is that a lot of the rides required at least 1m before you can ride on them. Unfortunately my 2 year old isn't quite tall enough and that was a shame as some of these rides were ones I know she'd have liked.

Really great. We went on a Friday in October during school term time. No waiting for any rides.

Parking was easy and close to the main entrance so we could pop back to pickup stuff from the car.
Staff really friendly and welcoming.
The Stormforce 10 water ride makes you really wet, so do at the end of your visit or if you need to cool down.

Been a pass holder since 2017
Oct 2021 • Family
Been a annual pass holder and having a 9 and 2 year old and living within 30 mins of the park we always have dinner at home and spent roughly 4 hrs on park. People who moaning about the extra charge for the fireworks unless you got the top priced Merlin pass there pass holders have also got to pay £20. The new owners have really done a good job on adventure cove and I hope the next big project will be pirate cove with the pirate adventure building used again for a new indoor attraction. The entertainment been excellent all season. Just wish Drayton will look at there prices and bring back to set meal deals and the kids lunch boxes as they were excellent value for money.

Great place For Families
Oct 2021
We visited on 15th October (4 Adults). We were very lucky with the weather. So this was a fantastic bonus to our day.
We have not been to Drayton Manor for years, since my children were young. We visited to celebrate a birthday. Given the gamble of time of year, weather predicting, fitting around shift patterns at work and where we live. Drayton Manor was a half hour drive from us.
We booked our tickets in advance and prepaid parking. Everything went smooth. The travel there, to entry, parking and submitting our tickets. The park was quiet. Most of the rides, we just walked onto, or with very minimum wait. The staff were friendly enough. We grabbed snacks at an outlet. The food you expect to pay a bit more for. To be honest it was quite reasonable to our expectations.
Drayton Manor is quite a small theme park, compared to most. We found our stay enough time to go on the rides, visit the zoo, have something to eat and go in the arcade.10.30-16.30 was more than enough time (It was quiet though).
I would recommend this park to families or school trips mostly. We did find the zoo a bit poor. However it is a great addition to your ticket price and for educational purposes.
The park would benefit from investing in a few more thrill rides. However for a pretty local, fun day out Drayton Manor is worth it. Glad the place is still going and deserves some support.

Fabulous
Oct 2021 • Family
Visited in October with a group of 20 aged between 0-60. No complaints from anyone whatsoever. Children ran around the park all day hopping from ride to ride - weather was great and no queuing at all. Will be visiting at a similar time next year. Only downfall was the Zoo - we saw in total about 7 species of animals, not sure if it was due to season or time of day but everything seemed deserted.
Thank you for a fabulous day 10/10 recommend.

Great Day Out With Family & Grand Kids.
Aug 2021
Visited again with family. We went there (summer holidays) during week days but still was over crowded. (over sold?)
There was long plus long waiting time in queues of older kid rides. It was comparatively better for younger kids and they have few rides. Kids have enjoyed 4D cinema and activities at Sodu Station.
Wave swinger (water boat ride) was closed for some time and reopen later in the evening.
Anyways, being family together, we have our own way to enjoy and we did.
Overall trip was okay as compare to our previous visit.
