Thank you so much to everyone involved in organising this event. It was fantastic! Huge amount of fun and so many great memories.
The Nemesis ERT was hilarious. First sat in the front singing All Star, then finishing sat in the back pretending to run around the entire circuit. Never had an experience like those on there! And probably won't repeat the running one again, out of breath
The reactions we got from staff were all priceless when they heard the group size. I would have loved to have seen the operators reaction when we all walked into Hex, announced it was Story Time and sat crossed legged at the front of the first show, with other guests following our lead! The staff member on Gallopers Carousel was brilliant and I suspect was expecting us, making it the most magical ride takeover of the day.
Battle Galleons. Despite being a lead proponent for #TeamDry, I suspect I may have ended up one of the wettest whilst we were practicing on the pier cannons, waiting for our Hawaiian shirted targets to arrive. My hat was still damp when we went to the courtyard at the end of the day
. I salute one of the orchestrators, Captain BubbleBoi, for leading his crew into battle and standing to take the full brunt of the pier cannons. Captain Pumpkin on the other hand, should probably be made to walk the plank!
Wicker Man surprise ERT was truly amazing. All praise the Wicker Man, and whatever may have happened behind the scenes to get that fantastic ending to the day's rides! The rate that thing threw us around, I now have my first set of Wicker Man bruises on my legs!
The courtyard social was a superb end to the day. Burger Kitchen bingo, whilst waiting for the food orders to arrive
. I have no idea how some of you still had energy to dance for so long! And bubbles! The BubbleBoi really did ensure bubbles for all, aided by the industrial grade bubble generators!
These events have been brilliant both from the activities side and also the social and community side. I'd had a tough year or so before joining the TTSP forums back in April, and the community you have all created here has been invaluable to me. Really looking forward to the next event, wish I could be at scare mazing, but it's looking very unlikely, with a work trip probably happening at the same time.
If you're someone reading these comments in the future trying to figure out whether you should go to your first TTSP event, all I can say is that they are great fun and assemble a great group of friendly people of all age ranges and backgrounds. You'll enjoy yourself
