Can you handle the challenge to Ride All Five Roller Coaster Day, 2016?

To celebrate this year’s Roller Coaster Day on Tuesday 16th August, Drayton Manor Park is challenging its visitors to the ultimate coaster championship challenge to conquer all 5! Visitors can spin and loop-the-loop their way to free tickets on the theme park’s legendary roller coasters. You’d have to be completely helter-skelter not to take this challenge!

All visitors need to do is visit Guest Services to pick up a stamp card then prepare their coaster plan of attack to take on the challenge to Ride all 5: G-Force, Shockwave, Ben 10: Ultimate Coaster, The Buffalo and Troublesome Trucks. Riders then get their card stamped at each ride and return the card before 4.30pm. With a limited number of free passes, riders should aim to complete the challenge as quickly as possible so as not to miss out!

If this wasn’t enough, Richard Shepherd, ride manager extraordinaire, is hosting a live blog from 12pm to 2pm on Drayton Manor’s Facebook page to answers people’s burning roller coaster questions. Are you a coaster aficionado and want to know technical information on how much g-force our rides have? Or maybe you’re interested in knowing all about Drayton’s rides’ history? It’s a chance to go behind the scenes at the UK’s favourite family owned and run attraction.

Roller Coaster Day is a great chance for us to really excite our visitors

says William Bryan, Managing Director of Drayton Manor Park.

What a great opportunity to ride our roller coasters and get a free return visit in the process. We aim to throw down the gauntlet to our dedicated riders with new and exciting ideas each season.

The park opens at 9.30am and rides open at 10.30am. For the best prices book seven or more days in advance by visiting or calling 0844 472 1950. For regular updates and news about Drayton Manor Park join it on Twitter and Facebook
