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!)
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.
On 20th February 2019, Thorpe Park officially announced the closure of Loggers Leap, after many years of speculation as to whether the ride would return to the park line-up. I feel quite sad about this as Loggers was a firm favourite of mine and I have many childhood memories riding this with family and friends alike. Is this really the end of log flumes in the UK as we know it?
I always like reading about everyone’s favourites and non-favourite rides and attractions in the enthusiast world. There are so many different variety of opinions, that is what makes this community so interesting. So, as I have already provided my top 10 list, and my bucket list rides/coasters, I thought I would start writing about dark rides. Moreover, the dark rides that I consider to be my ‘Top Dark Rides’.
Another controversial post is due, and yes, I’m tackling my bae of a manufacturer, B&M. I love B&M coasters. That has never changed but that doesn’t mean that I have ridden certain B&Ms and not enjoyed them as much as I would like. I am biased towards B&M, always have been. When I visit a new park and it has a B&M, I squee at the thought of riding ‘perfection’ – if that exists!
I was having a little look on Timehop earlier today and it was THREE YEARS AGO that I was last at Walt Disney World… That’s crazy but all those memories I will treasure forever! I am looking to return in the very near future so don’t worry, I will have a Disney trip planned soon. But it got me thinking about Walt Disney World and how many rides and attractions there are. Since I have visited Orlando twice in my life – 2002 and 2015 – I now have a good idea of my favourite rides and attractions, and thought I’d jot them down in a blog post for you. Here’s my favourite rides and attractions in WDW…
‘Flowing through Rapids, whooshing on a Dinghy, coasting via water coaster track, these are a few of my favourite things…’
Deary me, sorry for getting slightly musical there! Following on from my Favourite Log Flumes blog post, I thought I’d write about my favourite water rides. There’s so many types of water ride out there that I’ve decided to just make one list on here. Along the way, I have travelled to a fair few theme parks and there’s been a few water rides that have really caught my heart. They are the perfect way to balance out attraction line-ups at any theme park and with it being Summer right now, great for the hot sunny weather.
