Drayton Manor Park is home to some of the scariest and wettest rides around. Some of the favourites are Shockwave which is Europe´s first stand up roller coaster, Stormforce 10, with a backwards water drop and Apocalypse voted the scariest ride in the Uk by Channel 4′s The Gadget Show. Ben 10 Ultimate Mission appeals to all the younger kids. Ben needs you to stop Vilgax from stealing the Omnitrix and the only way is to board the “Mecha Vehicle”. There is also a 4D Cinema within the park.
Thomas Land is Thomas and friends´ first home in Europe. Thomas and his friends will have their very own home at Drayton Manor Park.
