Official TPM Alton Towers Trip

P J

1,439 views

Once upon a time a couple of months ago, TPM ventured to the outer whelms of the Northern Hemisphere to an alien species where people's speak a different accent in a land named Alton Towers. There was much excitement and amazement that these Maniacs were for the first time ever having an official overnight stay. So what adventures and situations will we see unfold in the upcoming 5 part adventure? It's 10th episode you know ;)

On Arrival TPM came across this huge mansion - where it was decided they will spend the night :ph34r:

201_zpsc00f203b.jpg

To celebrate Peaj gets the 'soft' drinks :drinks: out for Mer & TopsyTurvy15 to get the weekend going

202_zpsf94673e5.jpg

Suddenly celebrations stopped :help: when DaddysLittlePrincess, James & Co, Mer & TopsyTurvy15 are held hostage by a zombie

203_zpsaf94ab27.jpg

This zombie :diablo: put TPM all at gun point until they were all strapped into a Ripsaw

204_zpsea01660d.jpg

Han30 & Myk brace their heads for cover as the terrifying water :unsure: comes to soak all of TPM

205_zpsd56bcb90.jpg

They somehow manage to escape :yahoo: and Mr. Fish, Han30 & James & Co. decide to ride into the Sky to look for safer turf

206_zps745746da.jpg

Luke_A, Peaj, Styles & Hacksaw are extremely glad :good: they can start to relax after that morning ordeal

207_zps9cfc87f9.jpg

Suddenly the group came across a magic mushroom :huh: so they decided to ride it

208_zpsc29ddffd.jpg

TopsyTurvy15, Styles, Peaj & Alpengeist then get high B) on the magic of the spinning mushroom

209_zpsa6e119ce.jpg

As our group was so large - a big achievement for going to a land far far away :D - the 2nd half of the group had their turn

210_zpsa17476f7.jpg

Everything seems like at the moment it will all end on a 'happy ever after' note. But No :angry2: that would be too simple. In the next chapter you will see that one member in particular needs to be marmalised but who? Who gets upset for eating in the cold? Is there another member trying to set up an evil plan and strip IanNem of his evil persuasive powers? Well if you come back tomorrow this fairy tale adventure will continue.

You want a Part 2 I hear you say, well as a genie once told me - Your wish is my command ;) ? We last left you with the maniacs getting high on Spinning Mushrooms. But after getting so high will the moods go over the moon or will they drop to the inner earths crust?

EC! Welcomes you back and after the spinning mushroom he's just smouldering B)

211_zpsf1224e9d.jpg

But then so would you if you knew your next adventure will be on THE SMILER. Fantastic :wub: photo Stretchy took I have to say

212_zps997cfdab.jpg

J.S217 Looks like he needs to be Marmalized :crazy: We can't have these advocates standing in the queue with that type of face

213_zpsa2296128.jpg

Luke_A was very pleased with The Smiler - It is Gerstlauer after all :closedeyes: Liam_T is also quite smug about it as well at his First TPM Meet

214_zps1b59068a.jpg

After being marmalized. There was only one thing that could be done next - Eating some lovely greasy :pardon: chicken

215_zps86949101.jpg

Due to space Mr. Fish, EC!, Alpengeist (who is not afraid to show his displeasure :angry2: being shoved outside), Stretchy & Han30 have a chit chat in the cold.

216_zps00397cee.jpg

Bloody Nora - Look who's showed up! Smidget, Iannem & Marc come and join the party :yahoo:

217_zps3f5c5cfe.jpg

Before we go any further into this fairytale - just one more look at this gorgeous :air_kiss: tangled mess

218_zps8721a5e3.jpg

As the waterpark was on the horizon the group split into 2. J.S217 leads the way by going into the woods, he just better not go alone.... :ohmy:

219_zpsa9929330.jpg

As Myk seems to be plotting something by phoning ahead to his fellow demons :diablo: in the Dark Forest to capture whoever goes there

220_zps697e269b.jpg

At this point the story must drive and brake hard on this cliffhanger of an ending. It's just unbearable to have to wait for Part 3 to see what Myk has plotted. But to add even more things into the mix. For those who stayed in Park, what did they have to go through to try and survive Myk's schemes? What is the leaning tower of Burger? Who will be stripping off for the pleasure of some of the readers on the board? Yes I hear you want to know now, but you'll just have to wait until next time....Now where did I put that Babybel! <_<

Your back already to see Part 3 of the 5 Part northern fairytale! You must be mad :crazy: thinking I will just give you another dose of your trip fix. Lucky for you I'm in a good mood and will continue this story for you now.

Plus Alpengeist is really happy to have you back here, it's brought him to tears :( Then again he may still be upset about being shoved outside

221_zps75a99ed9.jpg

Alpengeist soon cheers up though when he arrives at the warm Caribbean :good: with TopsyTurvy15 & Styles

222_zps1f7a80be.jpg

Whilst the lads enjoy the Waterpark, Smidget who forgot her swim gear, looks longingly out the window, wishing to be swimming with those gorgeous hunks :wub:

223_zps4cbbdb94.jpg

Meanwhile back at the Towers, Myk tries to hide himself whilst he captures the group in the woods. Hacksaw, Mr. Fish, Han30 & EC! are scared :o

224_zps70caf1e9.jpg

Back in the tropical Caribbean, Topsyturvy15, Styles, Liam_T, Peaj, DaddysLittlePrincess, James & Co & Alpengeist show their hunkiness to the world B)

225_zps2bb648e3.jpg

Enough of that already and get some clothes on I tell ya! However Styles & Alpengeist have a bit TOO much fun with the Blow Dryers :mellow:

226_zps10c40c36.jpg

Back in the Towers, the group decide to try and defeat Myk, however Stretchy turned on Han30 :help: & Han30 turned on Mr. Fish allowing Myk to escape!

227_zps58a1f8fc.jpg

Back at the Caribbean, everyone got their umbrellas out as it started to rain quite heavily :huh: , before making their way to dinner

228_zpsaeb0f9fb.jpg

The Rain brought them to eat at the Titanic (Pub :drinks:) and I commend these Northern Creatures for creating the tastiest lovely towering Burgers

229_zps73430fae.jpg

Time to finish off this Part with a nice small group photo of minions :D enjoying food

230_zps920b9e61.jpg

I will have to stop you there! If I continue there will be nothing else to put into the last 2 parts of this Northern journey. But I will reveal 3 clues of what to expect. What antics will happen at the hotel on the first official overnight stay? What will the Maniacs see when the lights go on? Who is trying to take on MattyMoo's title of holding the most bags? You'll just have to find out when Part 4 is released on a forum board near you ;)

So we last left you with a happy well fed group after a thrilling 1st day of going to that foreign country of Northern people :P However we still have a sleepover and ANOTHER day of antics to get through. My head is spinning with all this excitement. So what will have in this penultimate part 4 of 5!

Darkadder312 is asleep and this muppet welcomes you back by having some mischievous :diablo: fun

231_zps2d5ad078.jpg

Topsyturvy15 & Peaj fight to the death, for their right to the bed :lazy: (Peaj eventually wins)

232_zpsd991c550.jpg

However DaddysLittlePrincess & Mer are unsure :mellow: of what to make of the events that were unfolding that night

233_zpsbad91e95.jpg

The next morning the maniacs woke up by dropping into Oblivion :o

234_zps5c7e77e1.jpg

Peaj & Styles found it the best way to wake up in the morning :blush:

235_zps52f76881.jpg

After the Maniacs were alert, Hex took a scary turn :wacko: and decided to also wake up allowing us to see the Towers with the lights on

236_zpsf3a85021.jpg

But then this could be just a figment of the imagination :blink: as Alpengeist couldn't resist another fix of that magical spinning mushroom.

237_zpsda4fda14.jpg

Even Mer needed her daily fix. Who needs marmalisation :crazy: when you have a spinning magical mushroom

238_zpsf89e621e.jpg

Unfortunately Stretchy couldn't get his fix and was dumped with all the bags - Where's MattyMoo :pardon: when you need him?

239_zps9f37c8bf.jpg

All these mushrooms started affecting part of the group's eyesight who then needed glasses B) However they complained things popped out at them

240_zpsbfdf7293.jpg

But their is still a chance that this fairytale could have a happy tired ending but you won't find out today. No you won't :angry: . You'll find that out at some point in time. You will also find out some answers to these questions. What happens when you send some Maniacs to battle? Who is Styles new friend? What is the Official Group Photo for this Fairytale? Toodle Pip Y'all....

Now the time is near, the time has come, the final curtain :hi:......well for this fairytale adventure it is anyway. Admit it, some of you were singing that first bit in your head before you moved on with this paragraph. In true traditional fairytale style towards the end their will be the action packed finale where it looks like our heroes may not live happily ever after. We have already had 1 day covered but all good things must come to an end as Part 5 concludes.

Stretchy welcomes you back but is worried :unsure: that the end is nigh due to the oncoming battle...

241_zps6281e21f.jpg

The battle of the galleons where 6 Brave Maniacs go to war :crazy: on the mighty pirate boats

242_zps5557d5c6.jpg

Just look at the rage :aggressive: and concentration coming from Styles, Alpengeist & Peaj

243_zpsfeedce46.jpg

TopsyTurvy15, DaddysLittlePrincess, James & Co, Alpengeist, Peaj & Styles eventually make a truce :closedeyes: after getting soaked

244_zps63af60e6.jpg

Before turning on Mer :diablo: to ensure she got her own personal moisturiser

245_zps31fed786.jpg

As things started to settle, Nemesis struck and caused chaos :o to the surrounding area

246_zpse6ae3be9.jpg

However Styles made a friend :ninja: with one of the army commando's who protect the public from the Nemesis

247_zps9418dc4c.jpg

Who helped Mer, Styles, TopsyTurvy15 & Peaj to freedom and lived happily ever after. The others did not survive :help:

248_zps4dea9317.jpg

After all that excitement and fighting for survival, TopsyTurvy15 passed out :lazy: with exhaustion on the way home

249_zps332cb274.jpg

Finally here it is, the one and only Official Group Photo :friends:for this trip

250_zpsf54c8e29.jpg

Thank you for all those who attended and from what I can tell from people's responses since is one of the best meets that we have had this year. These meets would not be possible if it wasn't for all those who attend to make it as magical :wub: as it can get sometimes. The thing I loved about this trip was even though it was much further away than what we were used to the number who attended was still large which and this trip confirmed that longer distant trips will work in the future, so time for some experimentation in 2014. Now this is done it's time soon to head to the spooky happenings of the Fright Night Meet.
