Had a fantastic weekend at good ole Blackpool! :)
Myself and Leanne set off on Friday and arrived in a very windy Blackpool! Leanne has lost some hair due to tangling and reports that she wouldn't like to live in Blackpool... :lol:
Anyway, despite the wind, we set off down the promonade, went down central pier, got ripped off for two games of darts and even though I lost really badly still got a teddy for Leanne...cost me a fiver, but ah well!
We then went for some really **** fish and chips from some dodgy fish shop/kebab/pizza place and then went to Sea Life. I used my annual pass and Leanne paid the £13.50, which to be honest needs a couple of quid knocking off for what you get for your money.
There is a lot to see and do, with lots of different talks and I must say the staff are very friendly. They answer any questions you have and inform you of lots of facts you may not know about!
The theming is very good in all the areas of the Sea Life Sanctuary and it is definitely worth a go once.
We then went to check in at the fine establishment we know as the Travelodge. We stayed at the Central Travelodge, located near the Tower. The room we stayed in was very nice, with a very new style and an extremely comfortable bed! Once we had checked in, later on in the evening we went to seek food, which we decided would be pizza...Now may I ask what in gods name is it with Take aways in Blackpool, they all do basic cheese and tomato for about £4 or £5 and then toppings for something like 50p on top!? Insane!
Anyway, Saturday soon arrived and we were up, and I was indeed ready to go!...Leanne? have you finished straightening your hair yet? Reply: erm...nearly...I forgot my foundation...so off to Boots we went! :P After this we went for Breakfast at the raving McDonalds and then set off down the Prom for Pleasure Beach. :D
We got our tickets from the very new, stylish ticket centre and off we went for the park gates...which for a second I thought I was entering a country rather than a theme park! Although I'm glad to know I am safe at the Pleasure Beach with all this high security, I think it may slow down through put on very busy days.
Once inside the park we met Henty and had a photo taken with him, then we went for PMBO for our first ride of the day. Had a fantastic ride, but the staff looked bored as hell! I think I heard one of them grunt...not sure about talking...?
Now I'm just gonna review and highlight and lowlight because I can and I need a shower and sleep because I smell like fried products and BO and I'm buggered! :P
Big Dipper was great as always and Grand National was a fantastic ride! I have the bruises to prove it! Wild Mouse was bloody immense! Nearly fell out of our seats!
Bus W*nkers! I nearly weed! :lol:
Vik's twin! :?
Mc D's rave! According to one of my managers, that McDonalds has always been like that, playing music loud, so must be a regular thing...
The Fountains - They definitely add to the atmosphere of the area and prove popular with guests whom are just plain mad! :shock:
