Staffordshire based Drayton Manor Park’s 2018 season marks the tenth anniversary of Europe’s only Thomas Land. Find out how to take advantage of the special offers to celebrate the milestone
The popular Thomas Land attraction located at the Drayton Manor Park in Staffordshire is one of only three in the world, and the only one in Europe, but this year it’s celebrating another exciting milestone.
Everyone’s favourite blue-coloured steam engine has been entertaining kids (and adults) at the park in Drayton Bassett for a mammoth 10 years, and to honour this the park is launching a number of events and promotions, including money-can’t-buy competitions and not-to-be-missed special offers.
The attraction features many Thomas & Friends character rides for both the young and the young at heart to enjoy, including Thomas himself, Jeremy Jet’s Flying Academy, Harold’s Helicopter Tours, Troublesome Trucks Runaway Coaster, Terence’s Driving School and many more, not forgetting the newly refurbished Emily’s Play Adventure which offers everyone the chance to continue the fun indoors if the British weather takes a turn.
Since its launch ten years ago, Drayton Manor Park invested a further £2.5 million in Thomas Land and introduced Blue Mountain Engines in 2011, Winston’s Whistle-Stop Tours in 2013, Captain’s Sea Adventure, Flynn’s Fire Rescue and Toby’s Tram Express in 2015. Last year, Thomas Land also welcomed the highly anticipated James and the Red Balloon.
William Bryan, Managing Director of Drayton Manor Park, said: “My grandparents established Drayton Manor to provide a space for our guests to create happy memories together, and introducing the much-loved Thomas Land attraction has helped us to provide families with even more opportunities to do so.”
