The new land will open from spring, with new rides to be announced.

William Bryan, managing director at Drayton Manor Park, said: "It’s especially exciting for us to the be able to launch the new Adventure Cove area, along with number of new rides and attractions for families and coaster fans alike. We look forward to welcoming guests back to enjoy a summer of fun and seafaring adventures at Drayton Manor Park.”

  • Mandatory face masks on guests over the aged 11 or over
