For a fun-filled day at Thomas Land
Product: www.draytonmanor.co.uk/thomas-land Price: £65.00 Rating: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Fat Controller recently unveiled the Thomas Land extension to the crowds of excited children (and adults). I'd taken my two grandsons, age 4 & 5, who are huge fans of the little blue engine, for a sneak preview of the £2.5m expansion which gave them the opportunity to try the new rides.
We couldn't wait to to try Flynn's Fire Rescue, Captain's Sea Adventure with spinning lifeboats (where everyone gets wet) and now even Toby has his own Tram Express. Prepare for take-off with Jeremy Jet’s Flying Academy which has been moved to the new-look Sodor Airport with it's lovely cafe. You'll also find a statue and fountain of the Fat Controller and band stand for live entertainment.
Time then, for the troublesome trucks and Thomas himself. Take a train ride to the other end of the park to drive Terence Tractor and then a picnic near the dinosaur park and zoo.
Thomas Land is a part of Drayton Manor theme park dedicated to Thomas and his friends.
Prices for two adults and two children from £65
