OMG!! What a weekend! Where to start?
I got to Staines and met up with Martin, Lee and John and they encouraged me to do the mazes. And i kid you not i was petrified. I was a proud member of Team Wuss, so for me to even think about doing the mazes was just crazy. But i braved all of them on the Friday, admittingly, jumping and screaming and holding on to those in front of me for dear life, but it still counts.
Saturday came and i was actually excited to get into the mazes. The morning talk, i think was good, although couldn't hear much of what he was saying, and the random intrusion of the bin man was kinda funny. The behind the scenes tour was weird but amazing. Seeing the mazes with the lights on just felt weird, but also what a pleasure we got to do that. It was really interesting to hear what the tour guides were saying. The VIP lanyards were a great unexpected extra and the extreme mazes, (yes i did them) were just whoa! Cabin was mental. We lost Lee within minutes and then got stuck in one room for about 5 minutes with just one actor appearing and disappearing right in front of us. Crazy. But so much fun. Valentine, Saw and Studio also upped their game and i was screaming and grabbing to the people in front. (Sorry Alex, John and Naomi). We had to give the girl outside Valentine a round of applause for doing this long health and safety speech in three breaths and it was that quick that she deserved it and i think it made her day tbh
I would also like to apologise to Amber for the laughing fit i had after Stealth. No idea what caused it, but was funny. Then came the time for people to do Brave It Alone. Some went to Valentine, Some went to Cabin and the majority of those doing them did Studio 13. Well done to all of them doing the Brave it alone. It took a lot of guts and it sounds like it was incredible and crazy and no i'm not doing it next year.
Chessington on the Sunday was a pleasant, chilled out day and i was pleasantly surprised by how good the themeing is at Chessington.
A Massive THANK YOU to everyone at Chessington and Thorpe for making the weekend so incredible. A Humongous THANK YOU to TT / SP for organising the events and making sure everything runs so well and just a Ginormous THANK YOU to everyone for being amazing.
