This Theme Park Is Offering Free Entry To Anyone Called Archie In Honour Of The Royal Baby

If you're looking for a way to celebrate the arrival of royal baby this weekend and your name is Archie then we have just the thing for you: free entry to one of the UK's biggest theme parks.

This week we finally got our first glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby, and we also learned his adorable name: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

To mark the occasion, Drayton Manor Park in Staffordshire are offering anyone who shares the little prince's name free entry to their park this weekend (Saturday 11th - Sunday 12th May).


Archies will simply have to state their name at the gate - and bring a form of ID for proof - to claim their free day pass (normally worth £39) to the theme park.

And it's not just Archies who can cash in on the royal baby news. When you book online in advance, adult prices (that's those aged 12-plus) - are reduced from £39 to £19.50, and children and senior tickets have dropped from £29 to £14.50 for anyone who arrives with an Archie. Way to win points with your friends and fam, Archies.


The theme park is home over 100 rides and attractions - with the high-octane including Shockwave, Pandemonium and Apocolypse - and a massive 15 acres of zoo which is home to over 100 animals from all over the world, including several endangered species.

Drayton Manor is also home to Thomas Land, a multi-million pound attraction themed on Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends, perfect for little ones to enjoy.

The park's managing director William Bryan said: "We're delighted to welcome Archies to the park this weekend to celebrate the birth of the beautiful baby boy.


"It's always exciting to welcome a new royal baby into the world, and we wish Meghan and Harry the best of luck - hopefully we'll be seeing them in Thomas Land next year for Archie's first birthday!"
