The Baby Website to be selected to go and review Drayton Manor, which has a theme park, zoo, farm and Thomas land.
My mum decided to come along with us we looked online for prices and found it was much cheaper to pre-book online.
The morning of our visit arrived and we all got up really early as it was a 100 miles to travel, the sun was out so off we went, but as we were driving down the motorway the clouds darker which made me really nervous, then it started raining but it soon passed over.
We walked down to the 4d cinema which the queue again was only small, so we waited and then were sent through to another room which was absolute mayhem, there was NO where to form a queue it was just everyman for himself and no organisation what so ever, I do think something should be done about this as more and more people were coming in and just all pushing towards a door which was locked and it was quite frightening for the younger children.
We got something to eat a foot long hot dog and a bottle of pop costing £4.99 which I thought was very reasonable and they tasted great too.
The toilets were really good, you were never far from one which I thought was great as some places you have to walk miles not here you always had one nearby.
The children went on quite a few rides early on, but once the afternoon came it was much slower as we wasted a lot of time in queues, which we didn't have a clue how long we would wait for.
The haunted house was a long wait with only a handful of people going in every 10/15 minutes, when we got inside they played a video.
I was very annoyed that a problem happened and the staff actually swore and my children heard them even though it was said behind a counter it was said loud enough for them to hear, this really shocked me as I'm sure staff are trained to behave in a reasonable manner as its a children's theme park, this was a major let down.
The last ride was at 5pm which I thought was really early as we didn't cover all the park with queuing up for lots of Rides in the afternoon.
We had a fantastic day out at Drayton Manor and the new hotel looks great (nearly complete)
