This would work if everyone had three votes, because we all know alton towers will win, but it would be interesting to see 2nd and 3rd if we all had 3 votes

The title of the topic is "best UK theme park" but in your first post you're ask which is people's "favourite"

Which do you mean? there's a big difference between the two!  :lol:

I wouldn't say so, same for Drayton, but it seems that if it's pay once system, then it becomes a theme park to the GP (what's bpb's system anyway? not been so wouldn't know!)

I picked alton towers for obvious reasons and Drayton manor as I've always has a fondness for it. I could pic another park as I've never been to any others on the list.

Yeah, that's Dara's point. What's 'best' isn't a matter of opinion.

Drayton Manor is a pay one price system (went last year) and so is Blackpool if you buy a wrist band

Alton Towers is the best I think. Thorpe, Chessington and Blackpool are good in my opinion too.

But does that qualify them as theme parks? My answer, in order to be a theme park, you need to be themed.
