Drayton Manor has two reasons to celebrate

December 22, 2015

DRAYTON Manor Theme Park has two reasons to celebrate this week, with the big day just around the corner it has recorded its biggest ever Magical Christmas attendance this year.

The much-loved family attraction, near Tamworth, Staffordshire, has seen more guests visit Drayton’s Magical Christmas than any other season with over 18% more in attendance than its previous best Christmas in 2014. And tickets are still selling until 31st December!

Not only that, this weekend saw the event hit a record attendance for a Magical Christmas day.  On Sunday 20th December the park welcomed 45% more people than on its previous biggest day in 2014.

This year’s event has smashed its biggest selling Magical Christmas day six times over so far, beating its biggest day earlier this month and has beaten that every weekend since.

The hugely popular Drayton’s Magical Christmas event is hosted in Europe’s only Thomas Land™, which this year underwent a £2.5 million expansion. It increased in size by 40% and welcomed a host of new rides and attractions, enabling the park to offer an even bigger and better festive event than ever.

Managing Director of Drayton Manor Theme Park, William Bryan, said: “What a way to end our 65th anniversary year! Our fantastic Magical Christmas event continues to grow in popularity year on year and has again broken all previous records.

“We welcomed a host of new rides and attractions as part of our Thomas Land™ expansion earlier this year, which enabled us to offer even more festive fun than usual and this was reflected in visitor numbers, making this year the biggest Magical Christmas ever.

“We are so pleased to have been able to spread so much festive cheer to families from near and far and look forward to welcoming many more for the remainder of the event.”

There’s still time to grab your tickets to this fantastic event, which is open every day until 23rd December and then from Sunday 27th until Thursday 31st December.
