Havin a Nice in New York n tha' - Six Flags New England, Lake Compounce & Coney Island
Just come back from spending 2 and a bit weeks in America. Fantastic time to say the least.
Coney Island itself is a bit of a wreck. Picture a depressed, ran down Adventure Island, and then bunch a whole ton of Russian and mob gangsters there, and a touch of history. Voila, you got Coney Island.
The old parachute drop makes a real cool impression from the beach
Hi one and all, I am just a lurker here really so you probably haven't seen me around before.
I've recently returned from a trip I took to Phantasialand and have alot to share.
It doesn't take much to make an impression to me, and I feel like the impression Phantasialand makes is incomparable.
I hope, that it pretty quickly displays why it's my favourite park in the world.
I'm not one for just concrete and thrills. The immersion this place delivers is un
Taron looks like burnt spaghetti.
Taron, the biggest part of Phantasialand's newest development; Klugheim is one of the better coasters I've been on.
The parks biggest and baddest ride has little mercy, and throws you around the majority of the track relentlessly, curving and hopping in ways previously unmatched in steel tracks, comparable to renowned wooden coasters.
The ride is a very generous length, and meanders its way
I'm not gonna drown you with words, or pictures either. I just want to demonstrate how I fell in love with Wodan.
From the entrance, Wodan sits on the far right hand side of the park. you have to walk through most areas to get there, and the pathways there are limited, but stunningly themed, however when you emerge in Iceland you are treated to this gem of a view.
The ride casts an intimidating shadow over the rest of Iceland, and it's thunderous roar is well
I got back from a trip to Italy ab out 3 weeks ago. Personally, I think the trip could've been better. This was down to several reasons;
1. The people on it were eh
2. The people running it were rubbish
3. We were 20 minutes from Cinecitta world at one point AND WE DIDNT VIST WHY
buuuut it's sop picturesque I can't really complain too much
Anyway, here's a little collection of pictures and talk through my 5 day trip to Naples and Sorrento and Capri (no sun).
So we spent most of the
Now you may embark on reading this thinking it's going to be a crushing article on how disappointed I was with my first ever attempt at fright night mazes, however, it really isn't.
Today, for the first time I braved up enough to actually try the mazes at Thorpe Park. I've been to Fright Nights several times before but have only done 2 mazes once, and that shook my soul, so I wasn't expecting to do any mazes, simply because I was too pussy frightened to do so.
The day was spe
I went skiing this week with my Explorer unit. (yay)
now, you can stop reading there, or you can continue reading about how everything went.
I spent 14 hours on a train with 3 of my mates, and 16 13 year olds. It was great, because I just sat there, watched movies, and threw food at them, but also bad because they'd throw it back, continue to ask me questions about the scout leader (who was, my mum. Ergh.) and it was 14 hours, on trains, for 700 miles.
Although, in this time, we did
