Advantages Great Location, Ample Parking, A vast variety of rides and amusements perfect for a family.
Disadvantages Queueing times in busy periods, staff could be happier, a few more toilets needed.
I'm a big fan of theme parks and fairground amusements in general, and it seems my daughters have followed suit. I try to visit at least one UK theme park every year, and this year we choose to go to Drayton Manor Park in Staffordshire. I wanted to go here for two reasons, firstly it is home to Thomasland, a part of the park themed around the Thomas and Friends franchise which would be a lovely treat for my Thomas-mad eldest daughter. Secondly, purely for selfish reasons, I'm a big roller coaster nut and have been wanting to ride The Shockwave, the parks signature ride, for many years. I made it a small break, and took a few members of my family along. Here are my thoughts of this wonderful place hidden away in the midlands. (Apologies for the length of this review, but I just wanted to get everything in!)
Part of this development was the four million pound investment of a world's first roller coaster and a family water ride. Since then, more big rides and attractions have been added, making it a mecca for not only families but thrill seekers alike. The main draws to the park are the rides Shockwave, Stormforce 10, G-Force and Apocalypse, and primary family interests lie with Pirates Adventure, Ben 10: Ultimate Mission roller coaster and the exclusive Thomasland area of the park. These attractions make it a very favourable place to visit as an alternative to Alton Towers.
