so If you are reading this then you most probably read part 1. Well now for part 2. I hope you enjoy it. So after All the Shenanigans mentioned in part 1 it was now time for some Proper rides, as well as some other stuff. We went to Pleasure beach with our wristbands and on one of the best sunny and very busy days of the year. We went straight to Big one, and my is that a ride. It was the longest hill I've gone up, and I could feel my heart beating and looked to my friends, one was definitely about to either vomit or s**t himself. The time had come for us to take it. The first drop of the ride. I nearly screamed that I lost my voice. all you could hear was me swearing basically. the rest of the ride was so intense as well. From here onwards I can't remember where we went but I do remember the rides themselves so here goes. Avalanche was next. I actually quite love this ride and the whole concept, and it is great fun. The queue was very short on that day, and we went on twice. After it was Revolution. One of my friends had looked forward to this, so I was very interested to why he was so excited about it. It is actually an alright ride and I particularly enjoy it going backwards. (I love backward rides e.g like X no way out(the old one) When going backwards everything feels so different and more scary and I definitely felt it in this ride. Grand National: At last, a wooden coaster. One I've been waiting to go on for a while. (europa park hadn't opened Wodan at the time I went). I love the concept and its quite fun. Wild mouse: Really intense for its type, not going to lie, and a great ride. One of the best rides there- not too intense, not too weak. Ice Blast: Good ride, and one which was walk on for us. I enjoyed it though Detonator is more scary for me. It is a faster ride for me and has more to offer, with the "blast" up being my most enjoyable part of the ride. Infusion: looks good though most the queues were here and we wanted to avoid the queues where possible. Hope to go on next time though! Big Dipper: I found it too repetitive and boring, only after a while. at first it was good, don't get me wrong, but yeah... I know my friends enjoy it though, but it's not my cup of tea. Teacups: self explanatory. Thrill o Matic: was quite boring, although if you were a fan of the Wallace and Gromit Series I could definitely see you enjoying this ride. Vahalla: The last ride we went on, and WOW. what could I say?? Great theming, amazing effects, and the backwards drop. OMG!!!! I couldn't believe it. I felt like I was going to fall out on that one, and I knew about it and freaked. I tricked my friends to sit nearer the back if they didn't want to get wet, and Lol. I knew it before hand (Thanks to Coaster Jamie). so in the end heres the ride count: Big one x1 Avalanche x2 revolution x2 Grand National x1 Wild Mouse x1 Ice Blast x2 Big dipper x1 Teacups x 1 Dodgems x1 Vahalla x1 Thrill o'matic(took most the time with queuing, and not worth it unless massive fan of W&G series) To eat: We all decided to have A simple Burger king. Chicken Royale for me and big whoopers for my friends. (I'm not a massive fan of burger king's beef Horse burgers) Dinner: we just got some fish and chips near in Blackpool (Harry Ramsden) Back to hotel: Hilton (to the gym and swimming pool and sauna/steam room) The day after Pleasure beach we decided to hit the normal beach. Central Beach ,wasn't really for our liking, so we decided to go a few miles to Lytham St Annes. They have the best ice cream I have tasted. Its a calm beach with massive sand dunes. Only problem is the sea is a F****ing mile away from the main beach, otherwise its a great place and I highly recommend it. That day we returned to Blackpool for dinner and we had it near Central pier. Really nice place, can't remember what its called but its by the Blackpool information office(tourist). They have different stuff but I recommend any type of bread by them or dough like a pizza, although if you aren't a fan there is lots to offer. You can sit inside or outside and again I would recommend highly. Overall this was one of my best trips and those who are reading this, it is the end of the journey. Thanks!
