911 call the Chanchi!
I do get that, I and appreciate the work that all emergency service people do, but with the greatest respect, what did you THINK the job was going to involve when you VOLUNTARILY applied? food fights at a marshmallow factory and a few handbags at dawn? That's like a servicemen complaining that they didn't sign up to shoot people and be shot at?!?! The point is and remains, if you call the emergency services and no-one arrives, no amount of excuses and blame will appease, you said yourself that you're often busy with Facebook arguments, that's just not acceptable. My point was and is, that simply doing your job does not make you a hero, your actions do. Stay safe and next time perhaps don't dismiss someones experience as "drivel" as that's not really going to help your cause (y)
Are they testing a new ride or something? :o
Wow, you really showed your lack of reason and intellect with that little gem, I assume you're a cop too, you certainly have the right qualities :p Can you not read, they would have to call me back to tell me that they were intentionally not coming round so that I could tell a difference (y) Go sit in a corner and think about the next response, if you can;t keep it civil, ask your carer to take away your keyboard, theres a good lad (highfive)
Spoken like a true w@##€r. Let's hope when you or your family need their assistance you are more grateful
Got my tickets went on Tuesday I DO NOT rate this place at all 1hr minimum que to get on any ride 2 main rides where closed due to maintaince. The map of the park u can obtain from the park is very deceiving, park looks massive on the map but in reality it’s not big at all you can get around in minutes first and last time I’ll go there
Is this still on
Yes valid upto and including 31st August but you need to book by midnight the day before
Usual online price is £25, not much of a sale, i managed to get two tickets last week via buyagift for £36 using a promotion code.
It was a humans fault the incident happened at Alton Towers as it was human error which caused the crash and not unsafe equipment. Either way Drayton Manor have a death on their records. Alton Towers don't.
It was the kids fault not Drayton Manors.
Went week last Tuesday. There we're a few schools about but hardly any of them we're queuing for the larger rides so good ride count. Only thing to be aware of is G-Force and Splash Cannon closed and have been all season.
Any excuse to put Alton Towers down I guess...! The smiler worked as designed, but was overridden by human intervention...
Website working now for those still wanting £10 tickets for Sunday!
He/she was being sarcastic as the comment he/she was replying to was so idiotic (annoyed)
I think that's a bit far-fetched.. Why would they be do such a thing.. If anything businesses want to bring more revenue in.. Ramadhan at the moment is hitting summer peak times.. So you may find that it will fall in a few deals and event promos... Don't take offence mate... Or get paranoid :)
£16.65 on that link is more than the OP?
https://www.365tickets.co.uk/drayton-manor-secret-offer? cheaper via this thread, I used these tickets on Saturday with no issues
Just seen this on the website so think you will have to choose the date but won’t really know until it goes live at 10am so best check back then
Do you need to select a specific day to visit when you book do you know please? Or will the ticket ne valid for any day during that time? Thanks
Nice one - thanks for sharing :)
Yes great offer and nice for the kids but not in this weather
This is a really great offer for February half term!
A good thing about Drayton Manor is that you park your car close to the rides. So do not have far to walk back to Get picnic food and drink at lunchtime.
What a great offer, can't beat a bit of half price during half term!! YAY
Thanks will probably go then due to better weather I hope.
I went last week as a serving fire fighter and can confirm not free for emergency services this year too
I went to Drayton manor on Tuesday and I can confirm it is ONLY armed forces who get free entry for the 2018 season. Emergency services get a discount with a blue light card. I also asked Dryaton Manor via their facebook page and they confirmed emergency sevices do not get free entry this year.
I've called them
That article is from last year. The information from the actual Drayton Manor park website says it's a discount.
Cool good on you guessing doesn't apply to you so that's why your voting gold
Be very careful of the dates of the 'Summer' tickets. Don't start until 23rd July.
Already posted https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/drayton-manor-tickets-for-15-black-friday-deal-2836046
Did u book it? My ticket showing valid dates of 2017?
Thanks, ordered. Even though T&C say you need to choose a date when ordering it, it generates a ticket valid for the entire summer within T&C dates so you don't have to select any date. 8)
I had to help somebody who fainted once reckon I'll qualify?
Dam it!! Such a great joke wasted. Apologies to Ser Colin Bryan. There’s always next time 🤙🏽
Another keyboard warrior who doesn’t know the facts before angry typing. Embarrassing :p
If it included children as well then it would be a good deal. It's just another marketing ploy
Have you tried looking on the Defence Discount Site? Might find so information on there.
It's a shame all the water rides aren't working, they are ideal for this weather. Few other rides not been working for over 4 weeks. It's a shame as it's a good theme park. Today queues are mental.
Yeah I'm not sure where you got that from. Even if you book a week in advance at Alton towers it doesn't drop the price that low.
"For use between Friday 25th august and Monday 4th September."
It is rammed. I'm here right now. Queues are mental even for rides no one usually would go on.
id like to know that as well, booked to stay overnight so would be great to use next day
Do they always give the £14 voucher on arrival for next visit
Most of Thomas land rides are aimed at younger kids. I took my daughter on her 1st birthday and she loved it
My 2 and 3 year old can go on most the rides in Thomas land they love it there can do more at Thomas land than CBeebiesplus you have the zoo quite out dated now but there trying
For anyone who has been how much would you say there is to do for a 2 year old.?
They had an offer like this a few weeks back but it was half price tickets so worked out the same price for me. We went on Saturday and it was surprisingly quiet, lovely day out
We've been several years in a row, last year was a massive let down - the entertainment on a night has gone from party games and activities to a table with glitter and paper in the bar, and we paid extra for character breakfast (xmas eve) and they didn't turn up, the kids we've very disappointed.
Great stuff thanks OP booked. Depends on age if third child mine is 1 so called and booked and it was only about £10 More for a travel cot in the room. The online system does not work right when you add 3rd child that is a baby as it doubles the price do just call and reconfirmed price would be my advice.
Great deal, booked and heat added
No idea. I'm only 15 minutes away anyway so would rather save my money and just go for the day
Just a suggestion can't see why the price would go up so much otherwise, most family rooms are 2+2 (barely big enough for 4 lol)
Thought this was the latest NOW album.
Good deal, have had many a good day out here
Apocalypse standing floorless is in my opinion probably the best ride. The best time to go for those without kids is during term time as you hardly have to queue; walk off one ride straight onto the next. However from now until September it will be very busy.
Storm force is the best wet ride, no water proofing will save you! This isn't a new deal though, 4 for £80 has been ongoing for a while
Storm force 10 is closed for a while though.
It's in the orange box under Step 1
When I click add to basket it says 'Please enter a date for this ticket' but there is nowhere to enter a date.

Hiya is the app called hoop as I can't seem to get it up x
Thank you for your hard effor
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/40776512 well done that man
Which can now be seen on BBC news.
No other services???
So well paid that you felt the need to add 'reasonably' Funny you should compare supermarket workers. As you may have guessed I am a fireman and prior to that I worked in Safeway. I just found an old payslip from 1998 and with Sunday hours and unsociable hours (anything before 8am and past 7pm) my hourly rate was not far off what I earn almost 20 years later as a fireman. That's how 'reasonably' well paid I am compared to a supermarket worker. Pension wise. If I was told at Safeway that I could pay over 11% of my wages into a scheme that would in 15 years be scrapped and replaced by one that saw me work 10 years longer and give me roughly half I was promised. I would politely decline. That's how 'excellent' my pension is.
Do I get in free too?
nice gesture although very selective. The fact remains they are reasonably well paid and have excellent pensions, unlike the girl/guy working in supermarkets, or the people working as carers in nursing homes.....
So wonderful to see someone celebrate how hard our emergency services work and rewarding them xx Thank you xx My Son works long hours and when they do have family time, it's nice to know there are places to go that won't cost them a shifts wage.
