I think a look at the park's website is very telling.

Well it wouldn't be a Brit Crew weekend without a little Wagamama and Reflex, would it?!

And there was me expecting some horrendous photos of myself... Not too bad!

Great weekend! Bring on the Brean!

Part Five:
BREAN LEISURE PARK

The last park of our weekend was Brean Leisure Park. Pretty much this is just a static carnival much in the same vein as M&Ds. Though the good thing about this place is well,it's not M&Ds!

It's not a huge place but there's a decent selection of rides. It also is home to one of the best carnie ghost trains I've ever rode! I really couldn't believe how messed up Terror Castle was! Don't miss it if you're ever at the park!

The park is getting a new coaster next year, but I've rode it before so I can't see me rushing back any time soon. But with that said, it is totally worth a short visit if you're nearby!

Here's some photos...

After a night at Reflex, I would have at least expected a better picture of Disco Fever at Brean for the Park Index.

Thanks for the first look at the old Space Invader from Blackpool.

The Reflex reminds me of a chain of clubs we used to have over here that celebrated the 70's, called "Polly Esther's" (unless they're still around in certain cities?). We seriously need a Reflex now!

Awesome stuff, Brit Crew!
