As well as that, you can enjoy Drayton Manor theme park. Set in 280 acres of lakes and parkland, this theme park has some of the biggest, wettest and scariest rides around.

If you dare, ride the adrenaline-inducing drop-tower, Apocalypse, stand-up coaster, Shockwave, the splash-tastic log flume, Stormforce 10, and stomach-churning gyro-swing, Maelstrom. There’s also a sensational 4D cinema that will be screening an exciting family movie.
