I get up early, look outside and head that way.
While it is sunny, its a bit chilly. Did that matter? Nope
Even the bamboo down the drive is starting to mature at last.
Just like the rear garden.
I have a wander and then
sit down and relax to my breakfast. No bacon sandwich this morning.
Well I guess no pumpkins this year, just pumpkin flowers.
I look back on how the drive is doing and then
set off north into the countryside, windows down heaters on, and no this isn’t the mx5.
I park up and
join the first queue, that being for the mono rail.
The monorail queue was huge, but I had time to take it easy, I was after all the first here.
I enjoy the view and
a cup of tea next to the frogs.
I don’t know what they eat, but what ever it is they have had plenty of it.
The others turn up and off we go. Ride one is the Nemesis.
And while good and atmospheric due to the scenery, the one at Blackpool does rock compared to this one.
I despair to the toilet after that twist and shout, and whilst doing so the other s head for the blade.
Or to you and me the blade.
Year I would have wet myself my bladder was that full from the cup of tea I’d had.
But it looked fun for them.
Then onto the shooting competition. And year I did well, but my finger was a tad tired after.
We walk we talk.
We group together for the ride of the year.
Nack I’m telling you its made of wood.
And so I start looking for the matches.
Nice structure though.
The queue is long and queue is slow.
So we look some more
Nack of course its made of wood. Alan I’m telling you I feel cheated.
Look that is wood.
That is not wood mate.
The fence is made of wood, but here and there they have put in steel.
That's it I want a refund.
Actually its a good ride, a bit short but a good ride.
All this excitement means time flies by, and its lunch time, we stop a while.
Before heading for the queue of the day. If the queue for the Wicker Man was not long enough for you then this one for the smiler was, mainly as they kept letting on loads of fast pass people on, meaning the normal queue hardly moved. I get why, this is the best ride in the park. Hell if I had a fast pass I would be on this and one this and on this and well on this.
Deadmanjones, I’m not coming with you, I’m off.
I don’t enjoy it, so I did from a distance,
Afterall I wanted to see if I could hear anyone scream as loudly as me.
There they are.
There they go, and nope I scream the loudest.
We spilt up to ride on different things for the last ride. I go to Rita, we are pretty much the last to get on it before closing time, sad as it is but that's it.
And while the others are not here, I’m not risking it
I catch the monorail before it closes. I don’t want a repeat walk like wit the Greenies.
And as the sun sets
I know the car is somewhere over here.
Ah there it is. The old but gold dream machine.
Many hours latter we are in the Kermit.
The best thing about this place is.
It came in a balti dish without asking.
Yeah man I’m happy.
And then a fire was lit, a few beers opened and the night wound down to 2am……I go for walk and guess what, who's that getting out of a BMW then!
