UK theme park launches new Viking festival – with fire shows and warrior missions | The Sun

DRAYTON Manor Park is calling on people to "join the horde," as they prepare to host a new Viking festival later this month.

A "viking skills show", food stalls and live DJs will all be brought in especially for the occasion.

Last summer, Drayton Manor Park unveiled its new Viking land, complete with three new exciting rides.

This year they're continuing to celebrate in the land with a three-week long festival.

The park's website urges visitors to prove they have what it takes to earn their place "as a true Viking warrior".

It continues: "Raise your horns and get ready to party like a Viking god in Walhalla as the ultimate Viking celebration comes to Drayton Manor at this brand-new event.

"The Viking clans have taken over as they show off their fiery skills, put you through your paces, and bring the party."

The Vikings will show off their fearsome skills and compete to be the leader of the horde during the Raiders Unleashed Viking skills show.

That will be hosted at the Vikings land at 3pm. 5pm and 6pm each day.

Elsewhere, Rory the Lion will be hosting his own Viking show on the park's main stage at 11am, 3pm and 4pm each day, before a live DJ takes over until the park closes at 6pm.

Throughout the day, Viking street entertainers will be making their way among the park's visitors performing for them as well, making sure there's plenty of Viking entertainment to enjoy.

Pop up bars will be serving cold drinks to guests throughout the day, while the Walhalla BBQ pit will also be dishing out plenty of Viking grub.

Throughout the festival, kids will be able to earn their place as a Viking legend on the Valiant Vikings trail.

They’ll be put through their paces as they traverse through the Viking land on a quest to become the ultimate Viking warrior.

Trail cards can be collected from the Viking land shop or the park's toy shop.

Tickets start from £29 for anyone over the age of four, or £15 for kids aged 2-3.

Those heading to the park between now and October 15 can claim a free return visit.

The festival is free for platinum and gold annual pass holders. It will run from September 9 until September 30.
