Exciting year planned for Drayton Manor

Drayton Manor Theme Park near Tamworth is set for an exciting season for thrill seekers when it opens for business on Saturday, March 17th.

In its 62nd year of being open, the award-winning park will hope to make short breaks to Staffordshire all the more exciting with a host of Guinness World Record attempts taking place on the grounds.

Exactly what these attempts will entail remains a mystery at present, but they will certainly get people talking.

Last May, Drayton Manor attempted to set the record for the most number of people in one place wearing Zentai Suits (otherwise known as Morphsuits). 

There will be new live shows above the Ben 10: Ultimate Mission rollercoaster as well as in the Thomas the Tank Engine themed Thomas Land, which is celebrating its fifth birthday.

A new 4D film entitled The Little Prince is new to the park. It is based on a book of the same name that has sold over 80 million copies worldwide since it was first published in 1943. 

The 4D experience is much like a normal 3D film, but the fourth dimension adds sprays of water and bursts of air at timely moments.
