Drayton Manor will unveil a new ride in its immersive Thomas Land
Roller coaster supplier Zamperla has designed a new Thomas & Friends themed ride for Drayton Manor Theme Park in the UK.

James and the Red Balloon will be located in the heart of Thomas Land, Europe’s only Thomas & Friends themed attraction.

The ride, which is set to be unveiled on April 1 2017, is based on an episode from the television series.

It will feature beloved Thomas character James and will take riders on an aerial adventure in their own balloons.

The ride reaches a height of 1.5 metres and travels at a speed of 5.5 RPM, so is suitable for families and younger riders.

It will offer riders views of Thomas Land and the rest of Drayton Manor.

William Bryan, managing director of Drayton Manor Park, said: “This is the next exciting step in the progression of Thomas Land and we look forward to seeing our visitors’ faces as they take to the skies in James and his Red Balloon.”
