You may not have realised on here as I had quite a short hiatus during the summer period but I went over to Germany in June to explore a couple of new parks as well as visit some old favourites. It was a fun trip to say the least as it provided some incredible views across the German Bavaria area – I cannot get over how gorgeous Germany is as a country. These road trips that I plan are one of the reasons I love travelling as you really get a chance to explore more than just the theme parks – I have major wanderlust! I wanted to reflect on some of the best new coasters that I got to experience on this trip along with some of my old favourites that I couldn’t wait to re-ride.
Well, last week sorta flew right on by! I have only just returned to work today and already getting this blog post out whilst everything is fresh in my memory. In case you haven’t been following my social media channels, I visited a few theme parks across Germany, Netherlands and Belgium last week – and had a mighty good time exploring them all and going upside down on a variety of new creds, 48 to be exact! I am definitely suffering from the ol’ post holiday blues right now (even though I have got another trip planned next month!)
I don’t quite know why this idea came into my head – simply from compiling an email for work then I decided this would be a good blog post to write up! – but it got me thinking about those moment where you people watch when queuing up for a coaster. Even as a theme park enthusiast, you can’t deny that you will have at one point in your life, made one of these faces on any coaster – be it as a child or as an adult.
When it comes to visiting a theme park, we would all love to have Mary Poppins style pockets that can hold everything we could ever need to take to a theme park. Imagine never having to bag faff ever again?? One can only dream! I like to think I am pretty savvy when it comes to packing my theme park bag, however I always try to bring stuff that I know I will need – even though we can’t predict what will happen on the day.
Haunted House Monster Party is now officially open at Legoland Windsor for the 2019 season! You are invited by Lord Vampyre to his Monster Party where he will literally turn the whole house UPSIDE DOWN. I travelled up to Legoland Windsor on Saturday 12th April to experience the new attraction for myself, and I must say, based on first impressions, I was impressed.
With all the upcoming news about the new area, Tornado Springs, coming to Paultons Park in 2020 – which I am eagerly waiting for might I add! – I couldn’t help but put the spotlight on my local park. If you are not aware, Paultons Park is based in Ower, near Southampton and is possibly, one of my favourite parks to visit. Might be slightly biased as I have pretty much grown up with the park!
Room on the Broom: A Magical Journey is now officially open at Chessington World of Adventures, and so kickstarts the 2019 season for the park! The attraction is based on the children’s book Room on the Broom, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler – some of you may also recognise their work from the Gruffalo children’s book and the Gruffalo River Ride Adventure that was opened to the park last year.

As someone who wants to be THAT person to say they have been to all Disney parks in the world, it is certainly becoming a mission and a half to do! However, all things take time and I can’t wait to explore them all. I thought I would venture into the parks I really want to visit and why in today’s blog post. Having done a few trips to Disneyland Paris and 2 trips to Walt Disney World in Florida, I want to broaden my travels – sometimes visiting the same place can become saturated and boring – and I do not want that when it comes to the Disney parks! Here are my top Disney parks on my bucket list… and yes, they are in order.
