HIT Ent. and Drayton Manor Theme Park in Staffordshire have opened Europe's first Thomas Land in the UK.
Set within three acres of beautiful parkland, Thomas Land at Drayton Manor Theme Park features twelve themed rides including a 600 meter Thomas train ride, an indoor play centre, cafe and a Thomas retail shop.
Carefully created in partnership with Drayton Manor, the attraction is based on the popular THOMAS & FRIENDS classic storybooks with rides for children and parents including Cranky's Drop Tower, the Troublesome Trucks Runaway Coaster, Harold's Heli Tours and Jeremy's Flying Academy.
The first Thomas Land was launched in 1998 when the Fujikyu Corp opened Thomas Land in Japan within the Fujikyu Highland amusement park. Featuring eight Thomas-themed-rides and Thomas-themed rooms within the park's hotel, Thomas Land welcomes more than 1.7 million guests each year.
Thomas Land at Drayton Manor Park opened on March 15, 2008. For further information visit, www.thomaslanduk.co.uk.
