Photo TR: Legoland & Thorpe Park


Recommended Posts

Hi people!

 

A bunch of British TPR members couldn't wait til June for the Scandi Trip to start so we needed to come up with some excuse to go get drunk and stay up late earlier! With Thorpe Park opening Saw: The Ride recently we had the perfect excuse we needed. On top of Saw a few people in the group hadn't been to Legoland before which we felt would provide a nice complement to the madness of Thorpe. We had a great weekend!

 

Updates...

LEGOLAND (below)

WAGAMAMA & HOTEL BAR!

THORPE PARK

 

So the first day we did Legoland. I just love this place. It's probably the best themed park in the UK next to Alton Towers and its just tons of fun. We weren't quite sure if we could do a whole day at Legoland but we found that when you have a great group of people you can spend a whole day there very easily!

 

Without doubt the best ride at Legoland is Fire Academy, there's nothing funnier than competing against your friends and pumping away! Check out Steve's video (keep an eye on Anth!):

Here's some photos...

Fire Academy is Divv approved! I can't wait for a TPR takeover in Billund!

 

More Legoland fun to come...

DivvTPRLT095.jpg.70e2f7726e9da444fb8da4f22ca00ea2.jpg

If you're wondering why Brad looks so buggered watch the video above!

DivvTPRLT093.jpg.65d3e12a50b74ebf41d9d4b1957276d4.jpg

I'm convinced that this was designed specifically with TPR in mind.

DivvTPRLT091.jpg.96410b8ce93cfe0550c1810553d8cdf2.jpg

Time for the best ride in Legoland!

DivvTPRLT089.thumb.jpg.6722c7e756f9ce95d29b9dd72b73bccb.jpg

Of course this group is incapable of passing a slide without staging a takeover.

DivvTPRLT088.jpg.51bc8d5d41cce93d09b8a36075da234c.jpg

"Yes, we're all members of the Hobosexual Alliance."

DivvTPRLT083.thumb.jpg.6ac57a66c3bd90fafe630001ef69797e.jpg

I'm so excited to see Q-Bots in a Merlin park. Hopefully Alton, Chessington and Thorpe will follow suit soon!

DivvTPRLT082.jpg.76ce451004ffed8e5e8fa327030e9c01.jpg

The whores were also too lazy to walk up the hill.

DivvTPRLT076.jpg.1aa19e3fc6c28e08a1233c9d79331675.jpg

The whores rode this. I just took a photo of the sign for TPR's park index.

Cartoonish photo of TPDave quota: FILLED.

"I'm Super Dragon Train, gimme some track!"

DivvTPRLT071.jpg.50acc110c83a54dadcbc30a2afc99ac0.jpg

The evil dragon certainly had seen better days.

DivvTPRLT070.thumb.jpg.031faccf192ba5a05e3f618ffcae2fe1.jpg

Beware the curses of Generic Wizard Man.

DivvTPRLT068.jpg.90dc6d4442ef0236318685b64a3263cb.jpg

Looks like it worked!

DivvTPRLT066.jpg.af6aba8c3ca81178e1138c97e86cec49.jpg

Dave is always on the lookout for new ways of attracting females.

DivvTPRLT064.jpg.49b1343badf6f9e11b01517846ba5616.jpg

I guess this means we did The Dragon next.

DivvTPRLT060.jpg.47b58b37c12dded0f44c0b257d79cd72.jpg

We tried bribing the ride ops to lock them in. Unfortunately the Legoland employees are way too honest.

DivvTPRLT058.thumb.jpg.d5d428f332262e8294eefb714a0674ae.jpg

The greenhouse makes it a very loud experience as the bits all smack against each other through the ride.

DivvTPRLT057.jpg.11656ea4c20573d1c9490cee9e9531e2.jpg

Greenhouse POV.

DivvTPRLT052.jpg.fb5372d7ea0cddf6b2867920dce51970.jpg

That is indeed an enclosed car!

DivvTPRLT051.jpg.55fc44528853d1ad365ab4e81fa59101.jpg

No you are not seeing things.

DivvTPRLT025.jpg.65f5030afc5815d1dabec4b60d7cf3e4.jpg

Ooh a ride sign! We must have rode this next!

DivvTPRLT048.jpg.1feff779a56e818002b62301c00982d0.jpg

Today's lunch and DNA menu is brought to you by Steve.

DivvTPRLT047.jpg.511577780bac5e9d7ece74ff8d407abc.jpg

I'll let you think of your own dirty caption for this one!

DivvTPRLT044.jpg.1b5714e0856185f41650b0084562f164.jpg

Waiting for Steve to pass and pressing the water bomb button was a fun game!

DivvTPRLT031.jpg.aab57a2f04b27ecfed2dcae6405ecc89.jpg

Whilst we waited for our Jungle Coaster slot we laughed at each other on the Wave Surfer.

DivvTPRLT026.jpg.6845bff63a5f019532a05c46c224352d.jpg

If you visit Legoland on a weekend you're not allowed to queue up for it. The only way you can ride is by picking up one of these "fastpasses".

DivvTPRLT024.jpg.a0adabbc05d1a7ea717dde40e983e26a.jpg

The Battle of the Daves is reaching all new levels of gore and brutality!

DivvTPRLT023.jpg.b7e1df87f66825e61fa122fb7bd51411.jpg

The ride itself is good fun. Maybe not worth the long waits but it's nice to have another dark ride in the UK.

DivvTPRLT020.thumb.jpg.ab87ba8d2ce8ccfb94b3076c75df61f4.jpg

Lou loves generic Egyptian heads.

DivvTPRLT018.jpg.535970a8d034aae72ace9ae695b0ff0c.jpg

The queue is littered with Lego "artifacts". Luckily these are bolted down in case people try and move them.

DivvTPRLT017.jpg.9b865350981a4c512d09dd6b9a602e0f.jpg

Beware pickpockets in training when in the queue!

DivvTPRLT016.jpg.0b52adbca5e3e73177bb5a7eb6a1382b.jpg

The first stop was the "new for 2009" shooting dark ride - Laser Raiders!

DivvTPRLT079.jpg.e6567de0b77116c08005628bf21763ab.jpg

Brad's excited because we're at Legoland!!!

Legoland Part 2...

DivvTPRLT138.thumb.jpg.7ee2cbbeaa3694f794fa81bf391794d3.jpg

I really think Legoland is one of the best parks to visit as part of a group. I can't wait to get back to the one in Billund for more fun like this in a couple of months!

 

Thorpe Park will be up at some point this week!

DivvTPRLT050.jpg.9c98bd1196b3d727c87d57d524d60843.jpg

Here's our supertastic fun group of Generic Lego Fans. We had a great day!

DivvTPRLT140.thumb.jpg.5cac6397f6dd3a9abae72cd448804091.jpg

Is it Anth or is it Hitler?

1131199773_DivvTPRLT132copy.jpg.775380ba84df05955752da0faf8e3f96.jpg

It's just like the Lego special olympics.

DivvTPRLT131.jpg.5b53766ca40848d441be009c8cacdec4.jpg

Mike's problem #88 - Doesn't have a real grass skirt.

DivvTPRLT130.jpg.385d4e665a4c87f2871f39ce23512919.jpg

Is he Dave or is he Laq?

DivvTPRLT139.jpg.0254342838a0b8751539fc18c63d831b.jpg

If you're in Legoland make sure you do Rocket Racers. Not so much for the ride but really because it has the BEST pre-show video this side of Sea Odyssey at Port Aventura!

DivvTPRLT128.jpg.bf4e70c075f83f41153c3f7d7cb97330.jpg

Denmark is the only country in the world where the ducks are bigger than the cows. Who's excited about Scandi now?!

DivvTPRLT127.jpg.2ac3f6319ae0416baa7d8352d167ee1b.jpg

BLAST OFF! Well, not quite.

DivvTPRLT125.jpg.77eff802652347e5526444af49642e01.jpg

The group gets super excited about the big shuttle launch!

DivvTPRLT123.jpg.32ac69b9541362b8f745cfc41d8946e2.jpg

If you look real closely at the displays you find loads of cool little easter eggs like this.

DivvTPRLT119.jpg.d3e86f67d157654e4b8ef2641253e23f.jpg

I think I can see Lego Steve in the bar!

DivvTPRLT115.jpg.fadf53e8587e37c85a36f8f9c3129ae4.jpg

Yup, the streaker is still there!

DivvTPRLT112.jpg.320fc70af7e862548d7053cc3887225f.jpg

This be a dead skeleton made o' Blocko says I!

DivvTPRLT111.jpg.39a92d3044fb309402fd903caae10709.jpg

Mike's problem #63 - sitting in the front of the Log Flume.

DivvTPRLT109.jpg.177e83272dc4710c6ba89d60a9d618e5.jpg

So whilst none of those guys could breath for five minutes Steve took the opportunity to lie back and recover from the previous night!

DivvTPRLT108.jpg.d6b6046300cff7fc9501cf4a2bb7c836.jpg

We tried squeezing five into this boat. It didn't quite work out.

DivvTPRLT107.thumb.jpg.65696ad60f00856c5b67c8e0de9ad23d.jpg

The only reason Dave wanted to ride was so he could play with the Duplo in the line.

DivvTPRLT104.jpg.2740508ef153576f1076eb84605033c4.jpg

Yup, Pirate Falls was next.

DivvTPRLT103.jpg.81777d27a6554024a845d0db01b4d0b3.jpg

These poor wet people have Ben to blame for their plight.

DivvTPRLT097.jpg.98e8bb36ebbe7767a30b9ef6a17ceeca.jpg

These rapids are very "RCT".

DivvTPRLT099.jpg.903e618328ef0fa9025b87c29210101e.jpg

What better ride to get in the mood for Scandi than Viking's River Splash?!

DivvTPRLT094.thumb.jpg.0969cbacc5724398083f76b85ec5a180.jpg

Mike's problem #27 - too many bananas.

Wait wait WAIT. Did Mike just post?! THE APOCALYPSE IS COMING!!!

 

And LOL at Elissa!!!!

 

Great report so far Divv, I'd forgotten how much fun we had on Saturday, the sheer exhaustion of no sleep for two nights erased that day from my memory completely!! Some fantastic pictures.

 

I miss you guys!

Brad, why do we stand for it?

 

It was the stealing of my car keys to get more beer out that I can't forgive

 

^^ Whatever you say Bradley.

 

I hope you do come to Scandi, I really do.

 

No seriously it'll be a good laugh.

By popular demand!

DivvTPRLT155.thumb.jpg.b0cdeeab448e2ccad6e57e1470280470.jpg

Steve randomly showed up at one point with a balloon. I really hope it wasn't prised out some poor child's hands!

 

Okay, that's it for your "bonus" update! I'll do Thorpe later!

DivvTPRLT014.jpg.589b8865e93d71678a2b06e0508b4ac4.jpg

Brad, it's like 5am. Get to bed!

DivvTPRLT012.jpg.4e38847489fe5a0faa46ea7d598b258a.jpg

Fudge 1 just looks creepy in the disguise!

DivvTPRLT011.jpg.5a7362aca9f1058f78824f98a234c7e8.jpg

Looks like he might needing that disguise soon!

DivvTPRLT007.jpg.3b3e699c2528ed4240e3144f713b22b1.jpg

Lou tries out Steve's "Drunken Disguise".

DivvTPRLT006.jpg.57606178c55b5dc6c554af00ae5ecffd.jpg

Mark - this is exactly what I'm bringing to Scandi!

DivvTPRLT005.jpg.7d79cc83cdcdbaa0b9a657eb67c5c706.jpg

This is Scottish Steve. He startles easily.

DivvTPRLT008.jpg.661097a50423fbc4778518b359896c7b.jpg

Mike's problem #46 - Divv's posting bar photos.

DivvTPRLT154.jpg.846d7101b0610d6ebec6ade34b59b8f7.jpg

And attempt #2...

 

If you haven't been to Wagamama before you really must try it. It's amazing!

DivvTPRLT153.jpg.7303d84dbcc2746e5e8916d77171ed5c.jpg

Group photo attempt #1

DivvTPRLT152.jpg.a98e86887261bb80cf6693f3dd29d724.jpg

Our guest at dinner was Pete Doherty.

DivvTPRLT150.jpg.96b221f11eba43f97290725462726e24.jpg

Poor Brad really struggled with the chop sticks but never gave up!

DivvTPRLT148.jpg.17847d9f20febb82c983205a90470ccb.jpg

Done!

DivvTPRLT145.jpg.d34f934f33be11870a7f649bf1e64d8e.jpg

Here's mine - number 42. That's all you need to know. Go order it!

DivvTPRLT146.jpg.a6807b19c3e1036ae124486c27c8171d.jpg

Here's Lou's dinner of choice. Very tasty!

DivvTPRLT144.thumb.jpg.72a453ec8fd2f0e1a2ebd2ea05c3f46c.jpg

Mike, there's a Wagamama at Tivoli Gardens in Denmark. Sign up for Scandi and eat with us there!

DivvTPRLT143.jpg.d73f5dc7c0e13b2fdbecad3444a1852c.jpg

A staple of these Brit Crew get togethers is dinner at Wagamama!

Bahahahahahaha!!!

 

No camera can or will ever capture the true madness of a Brit Crew Bar Night. I swear, it isn't possible. Much amusement.

 

Looking forward to seeing Thorpe pictures from Coleslaw: The Ride, etc etc.
