One Guest shared their frustrating experience visiting a popular theme park, commenting on the massive crowds of unruly Guests.

While visiting a theme park is often a fun-packed experience for the whole family, there can always be several issues that can turn a family trip into an unpleasant experience for Guests. This happened recently to a Guest who took to TripAdvisor to share their experience dealing with massive crowds of people constantly breaking the Park’s rules.

The unfortunate experience took place at Drayton Manor in Tamworth, United Kingdom, and the Guest wrote:

Don’t bother! Went today and it was crazy busy with queues over an hour long, that was before you add in the people jumping the queue!!!! Food outlets were rammed, nowhere to sit and eat and it was a bit of a free for all.

We felt so so sorry for the staff who were trying their best but were unable to keep the park under control.

They continued to describe this “free for all” experience at Drayton Manor, saying:

Twice as many people there today as we have seen in the past (even before Covid) and turned what was always a great family day out into our last trip to Drayton Manor sadly. We loved this theme park but sadly never again.

While it is true that crowd control restrictions have been modified since the COVID pandemic started, it is unfortunate to hear this Guest’s experience was affected by the number of people at the Park and their “very un-British” behavior.

In response to the review, a spokesperson for Drayton Manor wrote:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We’re disappointed to hear that your visit did not meet your expectations.

We always strive to give our guests the best day out possible. All our rides and attractions which are available on the day of your visit are advertised on our website in advance.
