Win! A family trip to Drayton Manor


Fancy treating the kids to a day out at a theme park this summer? We've teamed up with Drayton Manor Theme Park to offer one lucky family the chance to win entrance into the park and an overnight stay at the four-star Drayton Manor Hotel.

Drayton Manor is one of Britain's top attractions, ideal for a day of fun, laughs, thrills and spills for the whole family.

The park, near Tamworth, Staffordshire, has something for everyone. For adventure seekers there are plenty of adrenaline-inducing thrill rides, including Europe's only stand-up coaster, Shockwave and thrilling drop-tower, Apocalypse, which was voted the UK's scariest ride.

When the weather is hot, the UK's first reverse chute water coaster, Stormforce 10, or the wet and wild rapids, Splash Canyon, are just what you need.

For the young and young at heart there is Europe's only Thomas Land™ attraction, featuring the popular characters from the Thomas & Friends™ series. To mark its fifth anniversary this year there is a new guided monorail ride, Winston's Whistle Stop Tour, launching on 19 July.

If all of these rides aren't enough, Drayton Manor also boasts a sensational 4D cinema, with underwater musical adventure film, A Fish Story, new for the 2013 season. There is also a 15-acre zoo which is home to over 100 different animal species from around the world, including endangered black leopards, exotic birds, monkeys and much more.

At the end of your day exploring all that Drayton Manor has to offer, you can relax and unwind at the onsite four-star Drayton Manor Hotel. It boasts 150 rooms, including 15 Thomas & Friends™ themed rooms. There is a new play area surrounded by natural woodland for the little ones to explore, featuring a three-metre climbing structure and a cradle nest swing, and much more. The hotel's new 'mocktail' menu is full of tasty non-alcoholic cocktails created by children for children, including the delicious Orangatan and Apple Dapple.

If you're stuck for somewhere to eat at the end of your visit, the Grill Inn has a new menu, including a variety of burgers named after Drayton Manor's thrilling rides. The Apocalypse burger is made up of three 4oz burgers, BBQ pulled pork, bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, BBQ sauce, Cos lettuce, beef tomato and red onion served in a toasted bun with sides of coleslaw and French fries – are you up to the challenge?
