I want the music they play around the park, under the shelters etc all the time i herd last year.Mainly when eating my chips under the last few Shockwave corkscrews there was dance music playing over and over again which i assume is the drayton manor theme music around the park then. i want that, sounds ace.

And I will find out what the music is for you and let you know as soon as I can.

I do apologise if this has been asked in another topic, but does anyone know how much the 2009 season pass for DMP will be this year?

Thank you in advance! :lol:

I hate to sound, all in your face and I knew all this before you, but I did.

I won't go until all the details, in-case the person-who told me is reading this, but he also told me that the zoo will also be getting red-pandas this year! :)

A 4D Cinema has been in the plans for Drayton Manor for a couple of years now, they were due to be adding a 3D Cinema in 2007 in the childrens area, but because of the new Thomas Land plans for the 2008 season the plans for a 3D Cinema were scrapped.
It should be really good lets just hope people messing about and vandalism don't wreck the ride experience. :evil:

I see this is a relitavely old thread but as I am new, thought I would join in. The last time I went to DM the Maelstrom was fairly new and I loved it, even though it made me want to throw up. lol

I've not been for a good few years and would love to go at some point this year.

Does anyone know current prices and do you have to pay for parking? I can't remember. x

Tickets cost £25 on the door (£18 online I believe) and you don't have to pay for parking. :)

If the new 4D cinema is as good as its smaller brother (at babbacombe model village) i know were in for a treat.

It was the best cinema experience i have ever had and that included Imax. 3D in High Definition with the special effects and moving seating was incredible. Highly recommended.

Visit to Drayton Manor

Sat Mar 14, 2009 11:49 am

On 26th May 2009, I'm going to Drayton Manor for the first time ever! The coasters look incredible, and I can't wait. Any Drayton Manor tips I could use?

The Coasters aren't that good.

Apocalypse and Maelstrom are the best rides there!

Oh...and do not bother with The Haunting and Golden Nugget Shoot-Out.
The 2 single worst rides, I have ever been on.

The Coasters are really good in my opinion, it is important to remember that they are individual to the UK and Europe in the case of Shockwave. Shockwave is also the only Standup with a Zero-G-Roll in the world, which is one of my favorite coster elements ever! G-Force is like one of my favorite rides and I find it comfortable if a little tight :D .

The Other rides are great, Maelstrom and Apocalypse are amazing, Stormforce is worth a ride and the rapids are likely the second best in the UK Imo. Pandemonium is ok, I like Golden Nuggets, but have to agree The Haunting is :censored: . Also the Bounty is a good Pirate Ship, full of air time at the back too.

Hope you have a great day! :D

I quite like Golden Nuggest Shoot-Out, I like the way the objects actually move when you shoot them - should see more of this in Duel.

The Haunting is a joke though.

And yeah, the two main rollercoasters are mediocre at best, with Shockwave being the better of the two.
