The attraction, near Tamworth, Staffordshire, is set for a busy bank holiday weekend and guests are urged to book early as capacity is limited.

And it has now launched an annual pass – available at draytonmanor.co.uk/tickets-and-prices – valid for 12 months and priced just £65.

Valid for every day the park is open, it means they pay for themselves in just three visits – and there is plenty for all the family to see and do.

The park boasts more than 100 rides and attractions, from white-knuckle favourites such as Maelstrom and Pandemonium, to Thomas Land, featuring 25 Thomas the Tank Engine-themed rides and attractions suitable for children and adults of all ages.

The park’s zoo is also home to more than 500 animals of all shapes and sizes, including a Sumatran tiger, red pandas and spider monkeys.

William Bryan, park managing director, said: “After a tough 12 months, we’re all looking forward to a 2021 season to remember here at Drayton Manor.

“We’re gearing up to enjoy our full events calendar this year, and the annual pass is the best way to get involved – it encompasses everything from Summer of Fun to our More Treat Than Trick event at Halloween.

“It’s especially exciting for us to be inviting guests into the park, which has seen a huge investment not only in the look and feel, but with new rides and attractions coming, which will be available in a matter of weeks.”
