Drayton Manor Park - Join us for a fun filled day during February Half Term - Saturday 18th-Sunday 26th February

3rd February 2017

Brush off those winter blues, grab your nearest and dearest and gear up for a great value day to remember this February Half Term at Drayton Manor Park!

From Saturday 18th to Sunday 26th February we will be opening the doors to our Thomas Land™ attraction and other selected rides for families to enjoy throughout Half Term. With over 25 rides and attractions, the magical Island of Sodor has plenty to offer where fans of the little blue engine can get up close and personal with their favourite characters from the hugely popular Thomas & Friends™ series.

What’s more, visitors can save up to 50% off their tickets. When booked seven or more days in advance, tickets cost just £15 for those aged 12-59, £10 for those aged 4-11 and 60+, £5 for those aged 2-3 and little ones under two go free, plus there are no booking fees or car parking charges.

But that’s not all, the family owned and run theme park will also be opening its gates on Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th, Saturday 11th, Sunday 12th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th March for its annual Thomas & Friends themed weekends. It’s the perfect opportunity to treat yourself (and the kids) to the magic of Thomas Land ahead of the main season opening on Thursday 30th March.

There is plenty to keep the little ones occupied all day long and Thomas Land has something for all the family. From soft play areas and live shows, to gentle rides, and mini roller coasters for the adrenaline junkies! Climb aboard Bertie Bus, whizz round the Troublesome Trucks roller coaster, take one of Sodor’s Classic Cars out for a spin, or sail the seas on Captain’s Sea Adventure.

Those looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of Thomas Land can take a gentle stroll through Drayton Manor’s 15-acre Zoo which is home to over 100 species of animals from around the world.

With so much to see and do, many guests need two days to enjoy the park. With our Stay and Play packages, visitors can combine a day in the park with an overnight stay in our four-star Hotel. There are a range of rooms to choose from, including 15 Thomas and Friends themed rooms so the little ones can experience the magic all evening. Prices start at £117.60 for two adults and two children and include one days entrance to Thomas Land, overnight accommodation in a family room and a full English breakfast in the morning.*
