If you’re toying between buying your dad slippers or aftershave for Father’s Day, Staffordshire based Drayton Manor Theme Park has got just what you need to give him something a little bit different this year.

On Sunday 15th June, dads get free entry into the theme park when accompanied by two full paying visitors*, ensuring a great value day out for the whole family to enjoy.

Thrill-seeker dads will love Apocalypse, voted the UK’s scariest ride by Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, which transports you to the top of a 54 metre drop tower before you plummet in free fall to the bottom. There’s also the stand-up rollercoaster, Shockwave, gyro-swing Maelstrom and gravity defying G-Force rollercoaster, which are guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping.

For the young and young at heart, there’s Europe’s only Thomas Land™, which features 21 rides and attractions based on the UK’s number one pre-school toy brand, Thomas & Friends™. Dads with little ones will love the Troublesome Trucks Coaster and Cranky the Crane Drop Tower, whilst the latest addition, Winston’s Whistle-Stop Tour, provides an aerial tour of Thomas Land the whole family will enjoy.

Not to be forgotten is the fantastic 4D cinema or 15-acre zoo, which are perfect for those looking for a more relaxing day. The zoo is home to over 100 animal species including a cheeky meerkat mob, a pair of endangered black leopards, apes, primates and more. This will also be the first Father’s Day for Brazilian Tapir, Izzie, who welcomed his son Nikolas in November.

The 2014 main season runs from Saturday 29th March 2014 to Sunday 2nd November. The Fireworks Spectacular weekend is 1st and 2nd November.

Please note: the park will be closed to the general public on Sunday 14th September. The Vamps will open Air Race on Saturday 5th July, pre-purchase of tickets is required.
