If you’re looking for a great day out this half term (26th October-3rd November), Drayton Manor Theme Park guarantees an explosive family outing, complete with a fantastic firework display.
The park, near Tamworth, Staffordshire, celebrates the end of its 2013 season with two nights of spectacular firework displays on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd November. The shows are set to music and last for 20 minutes, making them one of the biggest displays in the Midlands and the perfect way to mark both the end of the season and half term!
With the fireworks beginning at 7pm (last admission 6pm), a whole host of rides will remain open until 9pm, so the thrills can continue into the evening after enjoying a day at the park. Europe’s only stand-up rollercoaster, Shockwave, and drop-tower Apocalypse, which was voted the UK’s scariest ride by Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, will be amongst those open until late.
For younger visitors, there’s also Europe’s only Thomas Land™, featuring 21 rides and attractions based on the popular Thomas & Friends™ series, including Winston’s Whistle Stop Tour which was launched in the summer.
Tickets for half term and the spectacular fireworks are now on sale, and Drayton Manor Theme Park recommends buying early to avoid disappointment. The reduced rate allows you to take advantage of a full day in the park before enjoying the fireworks, for only £25 for adults and £20 for children aged 4-11 and adults aged 60+, £5 for children aged 2-3 and free for children under 2*. Parking for the whole day is just £3.00.
