Offer extended to 21st February
Now available until February 17th
Standard season passes now also available, £70 for 12+ age group.
There are a couple of Premier Inn's nearby to Drayton Manor if that's any help! (y) Anyone that has kids before starting school should consider taking a day off and going for cheaper hotel nights and when the park is much quieter too so you walk pretty much straight on! ;)
Just what we're looking for! Heat added! (highfive) Our Merlin passes expire in March and our daughter wants to go Thomas Land! :D
So.... Half price for an annual pass which lasts less than half a year?
Only valid until 23rd February 2020 though
Also there on Wednesday, very poorly organised, rides short and poor, queues ridiculous. The place is looking very tired. Not even good value with the discount. Alton towers far better in every way
Still not worth it went on Wednesday 1 hr wait on most rides bigger ones hour and a half,not worth the wait as some rides are shorter,really busy too,even Thomas land the queues to the rides were around 40mins.
They need to get some new Coasters, it's cool they have like the only Stand Up Coaster still running, and one of the best Drop Towers despite it being small. However the park has done nothing for years, and they shut their Rapids ride down which doesn't help. I get it that someone drowned on it, but it's not the parks fault if they didn't follow the rules to stay seated.... no need to punish everyone else for it. Instead they'll do what Alton Towers did and turn the Rapids into a Lazy River, so it might as well not be there as the Rapids don't exist anymore. If Drayton want to have a big Splash, get an RMC and you'll draw in some crowds with the first one in the UK.
Paid £48 for 2 adult and 2 children 2 weeks ago booked threw their site we did have to select a date so was weather dependent but luckily turned out a nice day, was good and queues were not that bad either
Used to be that price but now it has gone up to 4 for £88.
Going Sunday and cost £49 for adult,child and 60+. So not a bad price
Excellent, going on Thursday🌞
The tickets are 4 for £80 anyways so not really much of a saving
Are there big queues for rides?
Thanks op. Was waiting for a deal to come up. Just booked
They have a Fast Track queue on the Thrill rides so I would assume so.
Can you get fast track passes?
Hi amended next best price from £39 - this field isn't the RRP or the previous selling price, it's the next best price for the same item currently available - eg attractiontix appear to be selling adult ticket for £28
Annoyingly, the rapids closed, g-force is still there but closed, nothing much else there unless you like thomas land, they need to get stuff reopended/replaced asap
Tempted to go but weather not great
And good price Op
Oh no it's slightly better!!
Really? Just checked weather and shows showers all day...
Yup that's the minimum you will be waiting. Nice place but queues are just crazy.
Feels strange they would do this for one of their busier times. Wonder if they are struggling.
Great price but will be absolutely packed 45 mins wait for everything
(lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
i agree with you
Wow those royals pick all the terrible names. Does Archana count?
Fingers crossed next royal baby is called Gary (y)
(lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
Yes, Drayton Manor gets packed. We only go on off-peak days. Anyone looking to book a Premier Inn closeby, I've listed the current heat maps. I definitely agree not to fall for this kind of offer as the queues are horrendous. Go on an off-peak day if possible (especially if you don't have kids bound by school holidays). Book a hotel close by if you get decent 2-day tickets and if you're far away and want to be there first thing to get on a few rides before it gets packed! (y) Tamworth Central Tamworth South
Get 20quid tickets for here if you have tastecard and choose your own dates, its alright for little ones with thomas land...
The place will be so busy cuz of half price it’s not worth it.
Jesus half price is £19.50 at this tired decrepit place,nah you're alright
Tbh, i have thought about applying for that card. As for resettlement, i hadnt done long enough to qualify for courses etc. Pension got moved to my new employer. All a long time ago now, still remember service number though D2181..... sir!
Apply for a veterans card (use Google) using your service number. When did you leave? As you would have got a testimonial from your commanding officer and also resettlement money in the form of grants to use towards courses to gain civilian qualification's, how much depends on how long you did. You have also got pension rights which again will depend on how long you did as to how much you get and when. Very easy to get service records.
Was a general rant at how the MOD look after their ex-employee's. As for the deal, ive no way of showing ex service. Can you wear medals?
What do you want them to do?
A nice gesture, however, i dont think i was ever given a "leaving certificate" and considering i was supposed to be in "reserve" for the next 2 years, i never ever heard a thing from the mod after walking out of HMS Nelson. Thats how they look after you!
The website says it's only free for ultimate pass holders
It was 4 for £80. I won't be going this year it's getting too expensive especially as they have started charging for parking also
I don't think they have ever done 2 for 1 tickets - not since we have been going there for the last 3 years anyway.
Its free if you book in advance - £4 on the day
Hi any cheap hotel deal nearby , anyone can recommend?
Bed and breakfast in the hotel available the night before for £78 for a family room (4 of us) via hotels.com
It's pretty much always half price or get one free so make that at least 6 times.
The merlin pass much better value...
Went last year a few of the big rides closed very dissapointing, it seems run down down these days,they really need to have some new rides.
So whilst the country was hit with foot and mouth, then followed by a fireman strike, then war in the middle east, then another fireman strike,then mass flooding throughout the country, then riots within our own country, plus the threat of bombing continuously, plus the deployments to other countries helping with their natural disasters, continuous grueling exercises,security for a company which messed up during the olympics, long periods away from home. all of which i was was serving in and at, for my 12 years service. The military do so much, which doesn't get reported on, sometimes to protect us: possibly!. why would anyone have a problem with us getting a day out to say thanks. i would also like to say, having two sisters who are both nurses, and i highly respect them, there is no contest on who is better, we respect each other, for we all chose a path to help someone else.
So where were you during the second gulf war?
Brilliant!! I hope more companies follow Drayton Manor as service personnel both current and veteran have given us so much
I assume then you’re not quite up to date with how the term snowflake is currently used to express distain (generally at the youth of today for their downright pathetic views on anything and how easily offended they are) the fact you’re a “48 year old bloke with a shaven head, 18 stone and tattooed bloke” makes it even worse. Adios meathead (highfive)
Fat snowflake then
