I was very excited to be offered review tickets for Thomas Land at Drayton Manor, it was going to form part of our Staycation alongside a trip to some other attractions.
We arrived about 11.45am after a rather unfortunate navigation error which has now led to the SatNav being thrown in the bin!
We headed straight through and arrived through the gates just in time to see Sir Topham Hat singing and introducing Thomas.
The kids loved the singing and seeing Thomas arrive through the Tunnel, but I have to say the shine was taken a little of the arrival by the 'driver' leaning out of the cab chewing gum and not in any kind of costume.
- Ensure you have £3 for the carpark or request to pay it with your entry ticket
- I'd always advise packing a picnic no matter what attraction you are going to, for us we have to cater for an allergy so home cooked is always safer, but it means less cost and probably more fruit and veg.
- You'll need money for extras like grabber games and hook a duck and cash machines in park charge for use.
- Bring some in queue entertainment, we like romp trumps as its small and can be played anywhere, it came in really handy for the longer queues
- Try to hit Thomas Land with early morning or late afternoon and spend the rest of the time in the zoo or the rest of Drayton Manor
- Keep a look out for discounts and special offers, a family of 5 costs £135 for the day which is a lot of money but there are offers to be had by searching on line, singing up with Drayton and even using Tesco clubcard points where £10.50 in points exchanged with a boost will get you a day ticket!
