Drayton Manor information
.. the G-force, a tremendously intense roller coaster where you are suspended from the hip as you reach 70kph and do loop-the-loops while you're at it! Make a 50-metre drop on the notoriously scary Apocalypse, or expose yourself to incredible centrifugal forces on the Maelstrom gyro swing. If you're still not feeling dizzy, consider riding Pandemonium: a 22m inverting gondola swing. Afterwards, cool off on the innovative log ride. Or grab a snack from one of the stalls and stroll through the zoo, which has over one hundred animals, including big cats, cuddly penguins, cute primates and scary reptiles!
