Hi,has anyone else been to Thomas land in Drayton manor?
I went yesterday and had a fab time and highly recommend it. It was expensive but for any Thomas the tank fans it is money well spent. Good zoo also,think I had more fun than the kids!!!!

Ahh bless my little boy sees the ads on the tv but we live a very long way from it so he says we cant go there mummy its too far but we did take him to drussilas zoo near hastings and they have a thomas train ride and he loved it also a really good day out
we do hope to take him and his sister to drayton at some time in the next couple of years as i know he would love it

That sounds good,wasn't sure how mine would react to a zoo-we have a great one in Chester literally 10mins away from us but very expensive,went to Drayton obviously for Thomas but as it had a zoo it would be good to see his reaction.
All went well til two leopards had a tiff!!!! tears for ages!-glad I was in drayton the trains soon cheered him up.
I hope you get to go,its expensive i thought but a friend of mine recently told me you can exchange tesco clubcard vouchers for entry fee,and that would save nearly 20 quid. Looks like I may get to go again!

Thats really good to know as there will be the four of us having to pay to go in by the time we get there
drusillas is good but the thomas bit is only a two minute train ride which we had to go on 5 times during the visit and a small zoo good starter but drayton looks much more exciting with having lots of rides and more to do with thomas and friends im looking forward to it as much as the kids. lol

Honestly you'll have a right laugh-word of warning-if you go on crazy bertie bus,do it before lunch!!!!!
I was quite queezy-kids fine,just me!!!!!
It was brill tho,get spending in tesco 6mth before you go,and hopefully you could get a couple of adults in for free.
