  1. Lovin' the haggis discussions.... As a Scot, I actually prefer veggie haggis but regular haggis is good too. I reckon they put regular haggis on the menu because no one would eat it if they knew exactly what was in it I definitely have to get to F&W one day. It looks AMAZING!!
  2. Peach Fanta??? This exists in the world?? Amazing. Does it taste as good as it sounds?? Great update Robb.
  3. This looks AMAZING!! I really love that they are doing more with this park and I can't wait to visit.
  4. ^There was talk of doing it in Nottingham next year. Maybe we could get a TPR girls team??
  5. Great TR Divv! You got some great photos. Thanks again for inviting me to meet with you all. I had a great time. I'm not ashamed to say, I actually like deep fried pizza.... Only in Edinburgh though... It just doesnt taste right with vinegar.... Hopefully I'll get the chance to hang out with you all again soon
  6. Japan!!! Are the dates/time frames provisional? Or will the trips definitely run in the times that are specified on the questionnaire? The reason I ask is that my best friend is getting married at the end of June, so it doesn't look like I'd be able to go. If not, I'll wait for the next time Chrissie 'Desperate to go to Japan' Stevenson
  7. Great report Divv. What an amazing business trip to go on. Maybe you'll get a cheeky wee secondment to California for a few months??
  8. ^ Agreed! I didn't realize there was such a thing as a 'Brony' until I read this thread..... I totally agree with R&E on this one.
  9. Love this TR! I loved it even more when I read it with a Welsh accent. Really makes me want to go to AT soon.
  10. Love this! Although, the pictures of the food have made me feel a bit sick....
  11. Thanks!! It's the same in the UK. I couldn't believe it. It was a bit annoying on some rides because people would dump them right at the entrance but all in all I thought it was cool. Haha!! I LOVE this!! My BF is such a gay icon. Maybe I should be worried? I'm sure you guys will meet on a future TPR trip. Thanks Jerry! It was only the water rides that had huge lines. I was really surprised as Raptor which was newly opened only had a 20 min wait. Thanks for reading guys!
  12. I haven't done one of these for a looonnng time! So during Summer 2011, I went on vacation to Italy and spent a couple of days at the Gardaland Resort. I actually wasn't expecting much from Gardaland, I haven't really been to many parks outside of the UK/US and I don't know why, I just didn't think it would be any good . I was proved wrong, I absolutely loved it! The park was well run, it was clean, there was TONS of stuff to do and we ended up having an awesome time. Everyone going on the Italy trip will have a blast. On to the photos..... TPR meet Gregor, my other half. We were travelling to Gardaland after spending 3 nights in Venice (GORGEOUS). We were on a cool Italian train which had an upstairs, which of course we were on! Here we are at the Gardaland Resort. I would say it's like a basic/mid Disney hotel. My only complaint is that it was full of bugs. I mean there were loads. I got a really nasty bite at reception when we were checking in, so if you stay there bring bug spray! Here was our room. It was luxury compared to the little Venetian style room we had in Venice. So after chilling at the hotel, we decided to head into the park. They had a really good night time offer on, which was less than half the price of normal admission. Park entrance. Excited!! They have loads of shows on throughout the park. We wanted to see 'Museum the Secret' but we suck at Italian! Lol! One of the first things I noticed was that dogs are allowed in the park! As a dog owner, I thought this was awesome. Rollercoaster!!!! First ride was Blue Tornado. Not bad - Certainly not 5 hours. DO NOT RIDE IF YOU HAVE A BROKEN HEART!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!! Yep, Vekoma head. Thumbs up for the Vekoma... Haha! Ouch. Seats. So here is Gardaland's version of Frontierland. They have some really cool food places. Fruit at a Theme Park?? Wowza.... Pecos Bill?? Hi Raptor! We'll get to you later.... Criminal Shh.... Gregor the Personal Trainer is eating chips... Don't tell anyone..... Shhh Can I get a hot dog with that ketchup?? Who lives in a Pineapple under the Sea..... Or a big mountain with faces on it. Me and my pal Mr Krabs. Hot. After this picture was taken my Camera ran out of charge.... So on to Day 2 at the Gardaland Resort. Gregor is the king of Gardaland. Not for long!! Yep, I'm representing the USA today. I love how long this makes my legs look. I'm actually tiny lol! I feel like he's shouting 'Surprise!!!' I'm sure I've seen this somewhere before..... Bancomat First up is Gardaland's newest ride. Raptor! Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrr... Doesn't it look scary. We loved Raptor! It was smooth with some really good airtime moments. Gross but a good idea lol! Next up was the Flying Island It has some great views of Lake Garda And also of the park! Is this allowed?? Haha! I was really surprised at how well themed the park was. Here is one of the log flumes. This is the reason we didn't ride!! I did not want to wait this long to get wet. This was another thing I loved about this park, people just happily left their stuff lying and no one cared. It was really cool and would never happen in the UK And in the morning I'm making waffles!!! Ramses It's an Egyptian themed dark ride Gregor kicked my ass! Another death trap/Vekoma of the park - Magic Mountain.... Next up was Mamut. The BTM of Gardaland We checked out the Dolphin show. We did not realise that it cost 5 Euro extra and was completely in Italian so we had no clue what was going on. No comment. Night time shot! This was as close as I got to the kiddies section. There wasn't much in there but it looked cute. So this is the end of our trip to Gardaland We ended the night with the buffet back at the hotel. It was amazeballs. Thanks for reading my report
  13. Rihanna @ the SECC in Glasgow Scotland. It was great, she turned up on time and no one booed! Happy Days!!
  14. Thanks for that massive report Adam. I had really forgotten how awesome the queue/theming is on Jaws. I think Jaws was one of the first rides I ever went on. I first went to Orlando when I was 4 and I remember being very scared! As I've gotten older, Jaws became more of a joke ride but I'll always have a soft spot for it. I'm a HP fan girl, so anything HP related is fine by me!! Bring on Gringots!
