Re: planning my daughters first trip to the towers.

RMT is always a good start for people that are unsure of rides. But if she has been on the big one I would think that most of the rides at AT she will be ok on. Spinball wizzer is a good ride. Good fun and not very intense.

Re: Have we been spoiled by Florida and DLP???

I have been to Florida a couple of times and I know how you feel. I miss the place all the time and I always want to go back. But we have got other things to pay for in our life and other places we want to visit. I dont think that it is totally the parks having bigger budgets and spending loads more...

Re: The Monarchy - Your Views.

Well said Haydn! I have watched most of the Jubilee celebrations over the weekend. Thought the BBC coverage of the Thames pageant was awful! But I just watched the concert and that was really impressive. Very well done, great list of artists doing some great songs. The fireworks at the end was amazi...

Re: Poland trip May 2012

Poland is a lovely place to visit, well worth a trip! If you do visit Auschwitz you really need to balance it out with visiting Krakow. There is so much to see there and so many things happening! I have already been looking at the costs of flights to go for a weekend :)

Re: The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Discussion

James sums it up pretty well, people are morons, they act like morons and will forever be morons and should be treated as such. I have to work over the bank holidays which is only annoying from the point of the that Carla is off so I will be asleep for most of them. But I dont mind the Royals, I wou...

This is copied from a previous thread: Places we have eaten at are: Hooters! - An awesome place, the food is good especially if you like chicken wings and burgers and food like that.

Hi Nemesis, I would just like to say when I get a bit more time (probably tomorrow night) I will bore you to death with a post. But for now I will just say that I hate you! :P Twice within 2 months! You must be loaded.

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

I like the idea of going on the eurostar, but its all the messing about with other trains and buses at the other end that would put me off going that way.

Re: Am I too big for the rides?

To be honest when I have been in any theme parks UK or in Florida (there are a lot of larger people in Florida) I have never seen someone have problems getting in because of their thighs. It has always been a problem with the restraints going over their chest or stomach and not closing down enough t...

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

I have been having a look and trying to work out the costs for a visit to Europa park. I found this B&B right by the entrance and it looks like you can walk strait in to the park from the B&B , is that correct?

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

I am thinking of visiting September time probably the first half of the month somtime. I would aim to do midweek as well. I am guessing much like UK schools in Europe they would have gone back to school by then.

Tuesday 8th of May we planned to go to Wieliczka salt mines. We got up had breakfast and then headed off to find bus 304. We went up to the galleria and managed to find the bus, it starts from just off a side street rather than on the main road so it was a little bit harder to find than it could hav...
