It has been known to rain in the UK. At the moment, the third outbreak today is splattering off the patio roof as I write this but luckily not in Chester-le-Street so I can listen to the fourth test. My wife is irked with having to bring the washing in yet again.

And that’s what rain does. It irks you especially if you had something planned like going to a theme park for the day. Most of the time you would grin and bear it putting the whole experience down to “just one of those things.” But if you had planned on going to Drayton Manor Theme Park you would be going knowing that, if it rained heavily for more than two hours, you would be covered by their guarantee that you could return on another day and have free entry.

The Staffordshire attraction, which is set in 280 acres some once owned by the former prime minister and founder of the modern police force – Sir Robert Peel, says that the rainy day return tickets will only be considered if the it rains heavily and continuously for a period of over two hours between 10:30am (Ride opening time) and 5.00pm (Ride closing time). In order to claim the return visit guests will need to call the call centre giving their original reservation details so that a new reservation may be given for their return visit which must be between the 2nd and 30th September. So even after the schools go back, you can arrange a date for one of the weekends.

Drayton Manor Theme Park features some of the biggest, wettest and scariest rides around, including Shock-wave, G-force, Maelstrom, and Apocalypse, as well as a 15-acre zoo, the hugely popular Thomas Land attraction, and a 4D Cinema. the range of activities then appeals to the very young as well as aging teenagers who wouldn’t normally be seen anywhere near a Thomas the Tank activity!

Given that it does rain very, very occasionally might not other outdoor attractions consider the same?
