“Awful day for my autistic son at Drayton Manor”

from Jane Jones

I sent my autistic son to Drayton Manor with his carer on Tuesday. The day before, I rang to ask if I could buy disabled tickets at the gate, and how much they were. I was told £18 each, which was fine. When they went to buy the tickets they charged them £27 each, and did not even ask what disability my son had.

So the day was awful because they didn’t have the funds to buy food and drinks. Also, the carer noticed that some other kids had a fast pass, so they didn’t have to stand in long queues – which causes a lot of stress.

My son was looking forward to this day out so much, which made us happy as he dislikes going out. The people on the ticket sales need to ask for more information and to tell us what is available.
