Win the ultimate theme park experience - the whole attraction to yourself!

Drayton Manor Theme Park, in Tamworth, Staffordshire, has launched a competition to win exclusive access to its Thomas Land™ attraction. 

Imagine a day at a theme park minus the queues, getting to go on as many rides as many times as you like and sharing it with just your nearest and dearest. If that sounds like the ultimate prize, then Drayton Manor Theme Park has the competition for you.

The much-loved family attraction, in Tamworth, Staffordshire, is offering one lucky winner and nine of their friends and family the opportunity to win the whole of the Thomas Land™ attraction to themselves for an hour before the crowds descend on Saturday 5th September*.

So whether you’re eager to get on the engines, jumping at the chance to ride Jeremy’s Jets, can’t wait to experience Captain’s Sea Adventure or just want to become pals with Percy, the park is offering one lucky winner private access to Europe’s only Thomas Land™.

The winning group will also have a VIP photoshoot with the Fat Controller and everyone’s favourite little blue engine, Thomas, a VIP Thomas themed room above Sodor Airport for the whole group to use ALL DAY, a goody bag for the lucky winner full of Thomas treats and the rest of the day to enjoy not only Thomas Land, but over 100 rides and attractions on offer throughout Drayton Manor Theme Park.

Drayton Manor’s much-loved Thomas Land attraction has this year undergone a £2.5 million expansion, seeing it increase in size by 40 per cent and welcoming new additions, meaning that it now boasts over 25 rides and attractions.

To enter and for full terms and conditions visit, follow the simple steps and let the park know that you’ve entered with a social media shout out, #UltimateThomasVIPComp.

The competition closes on Saturday 22nd August at 11.59pm.
