Rooey Posted July 26, 2005 Share Posted July 26, 2005 Hey everybody! This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Drayton Manor, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page. Official Park Website Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in.

I'm sure the sensation of an inversion taken quite slow with just lap bars is intriguing, but it doesn't look like its packing that much of a punch. I shall find out for myself with my forthcoming trip to Drayton in a few weeks. Terrible name too. PS: Could someone please add a "D" to opened in the title..sorry!
