Hard to tell whether I'm staring at Thomas Land or Thorpe Park.
I'm not overly familiar with exactly where this is in Thomas Land but it is a pity that the fire has taken place in the park's flagship area. Hopefully they are in a position to rebuild what has been lost.
While I agree with this, they're not "toy trains". They're models that were used in the TV show.
Hopefully, it's just contained to a toilet block? It appears that way from the images.
The toilet block pictured in the images and also some damage to an adjacent shop.
Has anyone got a picture they could post of what the toilet block and shop looked like before the fire?
There is Google Street View available
Thanks @Rick for posting the link. I hope that Drayton Mannor can rebuild/repair the fire damaged building(s). @Rick I heard that a shop was also caught up in the blaze so where is the damaged shop,I cannot see it on Google Streetview/Maps?
I assume it's the shop on the other side of the toilets that you access from the plaza area, as you come into the park.
They say no rides were damaged but in the 1st picture uploaded by Ciaran on the floor is Jeremy Jet supports for the planes.
They will need to be tested if the heat from the fire has weaken them.
That's a good point. They will also need to be inspected for damage as well.
@Rick I have never been to Drayton Mannor myself,could you please show me a street view or a photograph of the gift shop that has also been damaged by last night’s fire?
@MattyH put one on Discord this morning. Either look on there or persuade him to post it on here.
Edit: worked out how to share it https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/484708050494554114/788580737561395220/unknown.png
@Thameslink Rail do you know if the shop is totally burnt to the ground or just slightly singed and repairable? Also do you think the toilet block will be repaired/rebuilt to its former glory for the first day of the Drayton Mannor 2021 season?
Many thanks for posting the link from @Prof Burp
See @Ciaran's posts at the top of this page. As for whether it will be repaired, I don't know the looping group's financial status but I doubt it will be particularly healthy, they will probably fix it quite cheaply while they try to fix Drayton's overall poor situation.
Drayton Manor got there annual pass on sale and it’s valid for 12 months from the 1st day you collect it which is good.
mine currently been extended to the 30th Sept and depending on the tiers and now this they hope to open for Feb half term but if not the start of April with passes extended to the end of October.
At this point it's clear that Drayton Manor must be built on an ancient Indian burial ground.
It's the only explanation for all this bad luck.
The building in question, is this one here, right next to the park entrance. Edit: Street view photo has already been shared.
I bet Drayton are glad they ripped the insides of Pirate Adventure out now, as if that went up, a fire would have caused far far more damage. Obviously it is not good, but the fire has not caused too much damage and should be easily reparable. Very lucky!
