So… We’re about to flash our blue and white Drayton Manor Ambassador badge again this October and head up to the Midlands for some Hallowe’en and Firework fun!
Drayton Manor Park will end its action packed 66th season with two weeks of spectacularly spooky half-term fun for the whole family this October.
From 15th to 30th October, Drayton Manor will be transformed for Halloween fun as part of its special ‘more Treat than Trick’ event.
We’ll be heading into the more Treat than Trick event and straight for Europe’s only Thomas Land™ which will morph into the ‘spooktacular’ island of Sodor. If we can organise ourselves in time, we’ll be there in costume, ready to knock on the Fat Controller’s door for a trick or treat before we leave!
If you’re a bit bigger than our boys and looking for a little more trick than treat, then look no further than the newly refurbished attraction The Haunting. Since 1996, The Haunting has scared visitors of all ages, who love to immerse themselves in the intriguing world of the paranormal. The newly renovated and enhanced attraction takes visitors on a tour of their senses; seeing, smelling, feeling, hearing and even brushing up against slimy and revolting things with its spine-chilling interactive activities. The Haunting is based on the legend of the Drayton Manor Estate vicarage and all of our boys loved it – even though they were pretty scared! The bit at the end is my favourite.
If that wasn’t adrenalin pumping enough, be sure to feed your inner thrill seeker with the UK’s scariest ride*, Apocalypse, or how about getting the fright of your life on Shockwave, or even braving the monsoon on Stormforce 10.
Prices for the Halloween Spook-Tacular start from just £23 for adults and £18 for children and 60+ years. 2-3 years cost just £6 and 0-1 years are absolutely free.
