Having recently visited both parks, I was considering which of the two I prefer and I honestly can't decide.
They are both very similar in terms of both being 'second tier' parks with a couple of 'big' rides and then lots of smaller support rides.
In terms of theming, both have some ok theming but neither have anything mind blowing.
The only differences I can really see is that the Zoo at Flamingo Land looks as though it has had more attention given to it over the last few years, and Drayton Manor is clearly the leader in terms of dark rides.
Other than that they are both two very similar parks as far as I can see and I can't make up my mind which I prefer.
