    It is our Staffordshire Weekender! Come and join us for a day out at Drayton Manor Theme Park and, of course, Alton Towers! We look forward to seeing you for a fun and informal day out.

    Saturday, 5th May 2018
    Time: 10:15am
    Where: Drayton Manor Park Entrance Plaza

    Sunday, 6th May 2018
    Time: 9:15am
    Where: Alton Towers; outside Towers Street Box Office

    Planning to stay over? We recommend Rugeley Travelodge for this meet, as it is well located mid-way between the two parks and just 100 metres from Wetherspoons.

    Don't forget to RSVP here!

    I plan to be there for both parks! Unsure about stopping over yet as I’m fairly close to both parks anyway!

    Booked Rugeley Travelodge yesterday so I'll be going. :) If anyone can give me a lift from Rugeley to Towers and possible back to Uttoxeter, that would be greatly appreciated and I'll help pay for petrol :)

    I've got 3 spare seats (possibly 4) if there are lifts needed. Traveling from Burntwood through Hednesford, Rugeley and Utoxiter. If anyone needs a lift to Alton Towers. Trying to cover extortionate parking charges lol.

    How do these days usually go. As in do we meet and split up or go around as a group and what do people do for food. I used to just get fat on all you can eat pasta pizza lol. Thinking this time just packing my own. Any suggestions?

    We tend to meet up as a group at the start of the day, head to the Welcom-Inn for the remainder of the day for drinks attempt some rides, break off for lunch, rejoin, more drinks rides, then bugger off home until next time.

    I've still not been on Wickerman; if that's still the case by then, I may well be up for the Sunday.

    To clarify, our meets are not just drinking sessions and I am concerned that they are being portrayed as such. Many people on our meets will be driving.

    We typically go on a variety of rides during the day. It would also be fair to say that the group does not stick together religiously during the day, some members may well spend an hour or two in the pub, whilst others go on rides.

    There are individuals who come on our meets who don't really ride anything, they just like catching up with people and 'being' in the park. There are others who like to do some rides, and also have a drink (like myself) - and then there are those who like getting in as many rides as possible.

    All are welcome.

    :)

    Sounds good. I'm a get the most out of the rides kind of guy. I was curious as to what happens cause there's a chance I might be on my own. And well didn't fancy having a day at Alton Towers by myself. To be honest not at this point in my life anyway. Thank you for clearing it up.
    Now all i need to do is find a group that i can be the strange guy who invited himself into with. Lol.
