Dreamland will take on global heavyweights like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando for the crown of Best Family Theme Park.

The Margate leisure complex has been nominated by Thanet District Council for the gong, which features in this year’s Family Traveller Awards.

The park re-opened following a £25m facelift earlier this year with a host of new attractions including a live music stage, which recently hosted a sell-out performance from Gorillaz.

Other nominees for the award include Aquaventure Waterpark at Atlantis, The Palm, Chessington World of Adventures, Diggerland, Dubai Parks & Resorts, Europa-Park, Efteling, Netherlands, Legoland Windsor, The Green Planet, Paultons Park, Peppa Pig World and Islands of Adventure.

Voting closes at midnight on October 20 and everybody who takes part will be automatically entered into a competition to win a £4,000 family holiday to Malta with Prestige Holidays, with Avis car hire and two Kodak PixPro cameras for adults and children to capture their best moments.
