Drayton Manor has revealed that the new ride to be added to Thomas Land in summer 2013 will be themed around Winston, the inspection vehicle seen in the Thomas & Friends series.
Winston Ride will be a monorail-style attraction that will take guests on a circuit around Thomas Land, offering aerial views of the area's other attractions. It will be similar in style to rides such as Sky Rider at LEGOLAND Windsor. No firm opening date has been set for the new addition as yet.
Thomas Land is the only themed area in the UK based on Thomas & Friends, and has proven to be an enduring favourite with families with young children.
Winston Ride will be the first addition to the area since the opening of the Blue Mountain Engines in 2011.
