Re: Themeing Removed From Ride At Drayton Manor

Probably slowly moving themeing out of Pirate adventure ready for its closure.

Or if you think back many years - that exact pirate was the logo for drayton manor and probably putting it there for part of their 60th anniversary celebrations.

Re: Drayton Manor 2010

Dont know who you emailed but from the words of Colin Bryan there still is going to be a ride for 2010 - if you emailed the info line then thats why.

And the hotel isnt in the camp site area as can be seen on the actual plans its in the woodland area behind the camp site.
