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

From Friday 30th October, to Sunday 1st November, Drayton Manor Theme Park will close its spectacular 65th anniversary season with an ‘out of this world’ fireworks spectacular.

The Staffordshire based attraction hosts an annual fireworks event; 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 three nights.

Once the sun has gone down, families will head to the lake where guests will be dazzled by a breath-taking War of the Worlds fireworks display. Set to the critically acclaimed soundtrack, and with a fantastic, colourful array of 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. 

William Bryan, Managing Director 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. The hardworking team we have here at the park will be going above and beyond to make this the best fireworks spectacular yet and we hope as many of you as possible join us to say goodbye to another fun filled season!”
