Epic War of the Worlds fireworks spectacular comes to Drayton Manor Theme Park

Tuesday September 29 2015

Drayton Manor Theme Park is set to close its 65th anniversary season with not one, but a trio of ‘out of this world’ firework spectacular events that are taking place on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st October, and on Sunday 1st November.
 
The Staffordshire based attraction hosts an annual fireworks finale; but this year is set to be bigger and better than ever with the introduction of a War of the Worlds theme to really get visitors’ spines tingling over the three nights.
 
Once the sun has gone down, families will head to the lake where guests will be dazzled by a breathtaking War of the Worlds fireworks display. Set to the critically acclaimed soundtrack, and with a fantastic, colourful array of explosive lights, this is set to be Drayton Manor’s most stunning yet.
 
For the younger visitors, there is the newly expanded Thomas Land™, home to over 25 rides and attractions based on the ever popular Thomas & Friends™ series, where families can enjoy a day out before heading to the main event.
 
The fireworks begin at 7pm (last admission is 6pm), and a whole host of rides will remain open until 9pm, so the thrills can continue into the evening. Europe’s only stand-up rollercoaster, Shockwave, the drop-tower Apocalypse, and Air Race, which takes riders on an aerial adventure, will be amongst those open until late.
 
Colin Bryan, CEO of Drayton Manor Theme Park, said; “The 2015 season is such a huge landmark for us as we celebrate our 65th anniversary, so we are determined to close it out in style.
 
“We’ve commissioned the help of industry expert, Fantastic Fireworks, which was actually the winner of the 2015 British Fireworks Championship so coupling this expertise with the hardworking team we have here at the park, will ensure this is the best fireworks spectacular yet.
 
“We hope as many of you as possible can come and join us to say goodbye to another fun filled season!”
