“Better for a younger age.”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by Kirar33 (1 review written)

As the tittle says, just not enough for the price you pay as an adult, compared to a couple of the larger parks for a price of near the same. Fortunate enough to go on a quieter day, be that a sunday which is most suprising, never had to que for more than 10 minutes for anything. That said on a busy day, i could see the negative que'ing comments being reality with so little to go on. For a family day out with the young ones, id recommend it for that, find a corner, take you're own picnic… Read Full Review

“Better than Alton Towers.”

Written on: 06/12/2013

Alton Towers is far too large to take a small child around with all of your bags etc. Where as, Drayton Manor is just right for a young family to enjoy their day out… Read Full Review

“Actually enjoyed it”

Written on: 11/11/2013 by Mr.Abu.Ayub (4 reviews written)

When I visited the UK, drayton manor was one of the places the kids wanted to go to purely to visit THOMAS LAND! They loved it! There was a guy dressed up as the fat controller who was happy to take lots of pictures and took the roll upon himself brilliantly. The train ride was kool for the kids too! It was easy to find a 2 for 1 offer on groupon (a UK offer site) which meant we all had fun for half the price! The rest of the theme park was also very enjoyable! Attentive staff, A good… Read Full Review

“okay”

Written on: 11/09/2013 by _und3rc0v3r (3 reviews written)

It was a fantastic day out with me and my family and the rides were really kool. The on site toilets were vile and unbearable and the food available was disgusting. On the plus side, the shops were very low priced considering it's a tourist attraction and we had a great day out at a low price… Read Full Review

“What a wash out”

Written on: 07/01/2013 by twinsdadandmum (1 review written)

I booked to take my family of four to Drayton Manor Theme Aprk it was at the end of November 2012. It had rained consistenly for a week so I call ed the day before to check everything was open and I was told it was. We arrived the Themem Park at 12am the next day to find that the whole place was shut due to flooding. I complained andwas told that we would get a refund on our tickets. I was told that every attempt was made to contact me to tell me it was shut due to this reason. I explained… Read Full Review

“Great for kids and teenagers, a few little niggles thou.. ”

Written on: 01/11/2012

Today my sister and I took my 11 year old son and 8 year old daughter to Drayton Manor for the first time (for them) as we usually go to Alton Towers (which is much better and the same price!) I'll start with the cons.. Some things are waaay over priced like the hot chocolate a £2.50 a cup! The bumper cars were an issue as they have far too many cars and hardly room to move, they could do with taking 4 or 5 out. At lunch time we ate at the cartoon network resturant and the only seats were by… Read Full Review

“Fun day out, but...”

Written on: 14/09/2012

We went on the 29th of August 2012 with some friends to Drayton Maner Park. The moment we arrived it started to rain and soon it was pouring, which went on for the best part of the day. Despite the rain we had a good time and on the plus side, because of the weather, the waiting time for every ride was relatively short. We were (or so we thought) eligible for the Rainy Day guarantee, where you get free tickets when it rains heavily and continuously for a minimum of an an hour. So we went to… Read Full Review

“Very disappointed”

Written on: 23/08/2012

Date of visit 23/08/12. We have visited Drayton Manor for the last 3 years and our 2 boys loved Thomas Land. Unfortunately our past experiences were not repeated on this visit. We were shocked to be asked to pay £3 for parking on arrival and then the ticket wasnt checked on the exit so we needn't have bothered paying anyway! The park was far busier than on previos visits and the staff were shocking and that is being polite. At best we got a dismissive nod as communication, they were… Read Full Review

“absolute waste of money”

Written on: 22/08/2012

never again!!!!! no signs to how long queing would be, que'd for an average of an hour for each ride. ignorant people trying to push in front! 80% of the staff were only teenagers. so busy that there was no where to sit to have lunch. everything was overpriced. my kids told me they'd rather stick to going to gullivers kingdom in future. as it rained most of the afternoon and i booked my tickets online, i was entitled to the "rainy day guarnetee return ticket" i wouldnt go back even with the… Read Full Review

“Poor to middling at best”

Written on: 20/08/2012 by thechez (1 review written)

I visited the park on the 19th August 2012 expecting a fun filled day which turned out to be a queue riddled mess. The majority of the rides had at least 45 min waits before getting to the front and no signage to let you know how long the wait would be. The number of people in the park was stupid and you could not even get an overpriced ice cream without a long wait. They really need to think about limiting the number to ensure you get a value for money fun day. I think I got on about 7 rides… Read Full Review

“Good for Kids”

Written on: 16/07/2012 by SquareHairBear (5 reviews written)

Just back from a weekend at Drayton Manor with my sister, nephew etc. We stayed at the Hotel which was great. The staff really went out of their way, the hotel was spotless and the breky was yummy! In terms of the park; it was smaller than I was expecting. I think that without Thomas (the tank) they would probably struggle to compete with the bigger parks - There are a few reasonable adult rides clustered together, but Drayton is really about the kids. To that end, the Zoo was very welcome… Read Full Review

“Rip off”

Written on: 28/06/2012 by Isobelle12 (1 review written)

Took my 4 year old for day out as out of school hols so quiet which was about the only, good thing I can think of if had been busy would have just gone home . Overpriced I think if I had payed £5 for 2 adults and child free would still not have been worth the money .The place is run down and tacky dreadful and having read some of the positive reviews I do wonder it they actual went to the same place as we did. The only thing we brought in the park was a coffee which tasted like dishwater this… Read Full Review

“Over priced over hiped”

Written on: 12/06/2012

Went on 11/06/2012 and it rained ALL day. Probably a sign of things to come when it only started raining as we arrived. Straight away as you park up signs tell you £3 for parking. We arrived hungry and thirsty, BIG MISTAKE. A small sausage roll £2.50, A small pie £3.65, hot dog £3.50. An absolute disgrace and a joke. I said to one of the very young staff that they must be the best hot dogs in the world for that price. Only bright part of the day was Thomas land.It brings a smile to the… Read Full Review

THE HOTEL we went to drayton manor a couple of weeks ago, we stayed at the hotel, it was nice and clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, the free breakfast was also fresh and warm, i was a little disapointed that the hotel advertises a thomas theatre, when we went to find the theatre we we told if wasnt on and insted they were playing childrens bingo, my two children are under 4, and looking forward so were very disapoint that it wasnt on but that was the only bad thing about the… Read Full Review

“Rip off hotel / joke of a theme park”

Written on: 22/04/2012 by Stan1933 (1 review written)

we paid £265.00 for one night for two adults and one child (15), the staff were mostly kids and had no customer care whatsoever, the evening meal was included but was topped by another £28.00 because we wanted a steak, the theme park itself took all of 2 hours to complete and that was with a visit to the zoo area, these poor animals at best looked ready to die of boredom, this is one of the worst theme parks we have ever visited and if you want poor food and extremely rude incompetent staff… Read Full Review
