The Midlands’ most popular theme park is celebrating the work of the British Armed Forces by offering free entry to veterans and serving personnel.
Ahead of Armed Forces Day (Saturday 29 June), Staffordshire-based Drayton Manor Park is inviting military personnel into the park free of charge as a special thank you for their hard work and dedication.
Serving and ex-serving personnel will simply have to bring a form of military or veteran photo identification along with them on any day of the year to claim their free day pass to the park.*
Those taking up the offer will have the chance to choose from Drayton Manor Park’s 100+ rides and attractions, suitable for everyone from young coaster fans to seasoned thrill ride enthusiasts.
Drayton Manor Park is home to Europe’s only Thomas Land, set in 6,000 square metres of beautiful parkland and featuring 25+ rides and attractions for families. The family-friendly attractions include Spencer’s Outdoor Adventure Play and the Sodor Classic Cars trail, and miniature rides such as Blue Mountain Engines and Troublesome Trucks.
Animal-lovers will have a wild time at the theme park’s zoo; home to 100+ different animals, from the striking Blue and Gold Macaw to the playful Red Kangaroo. With daily talks and demonstrations from zookeepers, there is plenty to see and do to keep animal fans entertained.
Drayton Manor has supported the British Armed Forces with free and discounted tickets for many years. William Bryan, Managing Director at Drayton Manor Park, said: “We’re so proud to show our support for the service men and women who go above and beyond for our country.
“With Armed Forces Day this Saturday it’s the perfect opportunity to honour their hard work and bravery by inviting them into the park free of charge – to enjoy some quality time together with their families.”
Defence Discount Service or Blue Light Card Holders who are not serving or ex-serving members receive a discounted rate for tickets (up to 10 tickets) for them and their friends on the day.
