7/12/8 London's Camden Market & Winter Wonderland


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I caught the train to London and visited the world famous Camden Market for a few hours as I had not been there for 6 months, it was very busy (seemed like ½ of London was crammed down the walkways), and good to see all the different cultures of people enjoying themselves.

After buying a few Xmas presents I caught the tube to Harrods to buy my family’s presents, after I’d finished it was 5pm and off to the main event of the afternoon / evening.

All the ride had tokens and each token cost £1, the large rides were 4 x tokens which = £4 a go each person, A bit steep in price but that's the cost of London.

 

Started with the Haunted Mansion, which was excellent, it promises to offer even more frights than last year, or whizz down the 60m Giant Toboggan Snow Slide - there is even a ski pulley to take you up to the top again!

 

2008 sees the introduction of the Ice Palace Mirror Maze - which has never before been seen in the UK, the attraction that promises to both puzzle and amaze! Or take a jaunt on the Sleigh Ride or Christmas Coaster (a very fast and nicely painted “Dutch” owned S.D.C / Galaxi) to really put you in the Christmassy mood.

 

Back by popular demand the Snow Ball Bungee Dome where daredevils take the opportunity to show off their acrobatic skills under the igloo canopy whilst others look on with amazement.

 

Along with the Wave Swinger, themed simulators, adult carousel, skill games is the event, which will surely fill you with festive joy!

 

Some pictures of the afternoon / evening, no pic's of the market though and sorry for the out of focus ones, still adjusting to my new camera phone.

Inside the Crazy House, the outside of the drum spins and the walkway rocked from side to side. Made your head spin.

The Haunted Mansion, seemed like a small hanging coaster

Middle of coaster, there was some "Airtime" on the 2 drops
