Confetti Magic have been back to Drayton Manor Theme park to help celebrate the opening of latest addition to Thomas Land. Winston's Whistle Stop Tour was pronounced open by the Sir Topham Hatt, aka The Fat Controller, and Colin Bryan, the CEO of Drayton Manor Park, amid a storm of red, white and blue confetti.
The perfect confetti storm
As the announcement was made beneath clear blue skies, BigShot confetti cannons fired a volley of streamers from the roof of the station before our CO2 Confetti Blasters joined in to give the photographers the shot they were waiting for.
70th Anniversary Confetti Cannon Salute
This is just the latest in a long tradition of opening rides at Drayton Manor stretching back many years. From the Haunted House with green smoke effects and pyrotechnics to Ben10 with streamer cannons and flame projectors.
There has also been a long tradition of acts given the privilege of cutting the ribbon. Names such as Steps, Bewitched and G4 have all featured in the past. Although the longevity of the acts may be in question, there is no doubt that Thomas Land is here to stay with the 70th Anniversary of Thomas the Tank Engine coming up in 2015. We look forward to joining in the celebrations!
