Thrills Without Spills As Drayton Manor Park Reopens
After three long months of closure, Drayton Manor is back in business and has reported promising attendance figures for its reopening weekend. It says it’s feeling ‘cautiously optimistic’ about life after lockdown.
Family-favourites including Thomas Land, as well as the Carousel, Jolly Buccaneer, Accelerator, Flying Dutchman and the 15-acre zoo all reopened incorporating new social distancing measures, hand sanitiser stations, and regular routine cleaning of rides.
The attraction has also introduced an innovative virtual queuing system in certain areas of the park, which allows guests to queue digitally via the Drayton Manor Park app. Once they have joined a queue, riders can see how long they have left until their allocated ride time and receive a notification and boarding pass, which will be scanned before boarding the attraction when it’s their turn to ride – not unlike Euro Disney.
