Just a warning. Our experience the year before last at Drayton manor for Christmas was pretty awful. We had a pre-scheduled time to see ‘the big man’. There were five of us (mum, dad & three kids). We queued for over an hour in the cold and despite having arrived ten minutes before our allotted time, were pretty hacked off by the time we went in. The queue was outside and we were frozen stiff. When we got in we were rushed through. We had about a minute in the room with FC. The presents were terrible. It was all very poor. Also, many/most of the rides were shut. Not the magical time we were expecting.
Ewwww, too soon - we haven't even had Hallowe'en yet! Thanks for sharing anyway - have some heat! (party)
They shut all the big rides anyway.I think in November,same as Alton towers shuts. Their sleep over has no rides. It is classed as out of season. Personally don't rate the place thomas land isnt all its cracked up to be. But they havent stopped the thrill rides just because they have added a wowcher offer lol & for a santa style sleep over its pretty cheap compared with others.
I don’t understand why Father Christmas is only there til the 24th of December, has he got something else to do?
