Let's go back in time! Earlier in the day we quickly whored our way around Lightwater Valley as a few in the group needed the credits.

 

I was interested to ride The Ultimate for the first time in three years, hoping that maybe my bad experience the last time was just a one off. Sadly, I was wrong, it's still a load of crap! Oh well!

 

Here's some photos...

Lucky for me I already had this credit so I could just point and laugh!

 

Well that was your whistle-stop tour of Lightwater Valley. Now, who wants bar photos?

Nothing like a Wacky Worm to make you feel sad and pathetic!

One more stop before we hit the road!

This time Brad says "Hi Erik!"

Sadly we didn't have time to check out Magic Marc's Horrific Magic Shows. =(

TPRMumboDivv062a.jpg.eda98443740728dd877f2c6940d05200.jpg

Whorey, whore, whore, whore, whore, whore!

TPRMumboDivv060.jpg.81cffe0674a9b09883a850b6979e575f.jpg

It's The Ladybird! Hi Larry!

TPRMumboDivv059.jpg.ed50bcbe8b38c2fcfe68f5483f1b2b6a.jpg

What are these guys waiting for?

TPRMumboDivv056.jpg.ea2447c5a6ace55cc4409e70a3e7a5fa.jpg

The park added a new rapids ride this year, but it was broken down when passed and we didn't stay long. Hopefully it will still be here next time we come!

You might have to duck to get in but the Rat Ride is the best in the park!

TPRMumboDivv052.thumb.jpg.6e36fd18ab9fed47436f9f751b2d2dca.jpg

Scottish Steve says "Hi Andrew!"

TPRMumboDivv049.thumb.jpg.2fc72622c5ea1aa16bcbfbc2a29d9612.jpg

The second half of the ride is like bad, rough sex!

TPRMumboDivv048.jpg.763d8e765cac5f6ee3dcebd4c219a54f.jpg

Brad wishes he had big boobs.

TPRMumboDivv046.jpg.3b9ab9b8a6dc1e282438175a61edeae7.jpg

The first section is pretty slow and tame.

TPRMumboDivv045.jpg.ccddf26a2d405411f8fbb696301d8650.jpg

Brad and TPDave don't quite know what to expect.

TPRMumboDivv044.jpg.fc19ee5709b7bf8064cac12b73ab6afe.jpg

Lift hill enthusiasts, get out your tissues!

TPRMumboDivv043.jpg.e8d46793bf7d33139b954b3222aef323.jpg

Mike and Steve are a bit apprehensive.

TPRMumboDivv050.jpg.f5c80849278979d2044c64d864a7708e.jpg

So, is The Ultimate better than I remember?

TPRMumboDivv041a.jpg.bad5bbabba4c7e641c42e0a0fa1a4edf.jpg

Now, the real reason anyone comes to Lightwater Valley!

TPRMumboDivv037.jpg.bdaa1704c01e0affa5f253776e2e0c5c.jpg

Scottish Steve LOVED the Spinning Mouse! Mike thinks it can be operated MUCH better!

TPRMumboDivv033.jpg.e9350f0ca14cba055a7a24d31e530c32.jpg

Excited? I didn't think so!

TPRMumboDivv054.jpg.31ea87ef9a2b78476289fd0a725be062.jpg

First stop, spinning hell!

TPRMumboDivv029.jpg.121b33b9791578ea04e7c4fd961b009d.jpg

Anyone know how we get into the park? No?

TPRMumboDivv027.jpg.b13dab1bb49333a97caf42c74f283557.jpg

Ducklings, ducklings for Lou!

TPRMumboDivv026.jpg.40bfa676ff4c030478027b440879b3bc.jpg

At Lightwater valley you can get a snacky, snack, snack, snack, snack, snack IN THE MOUTH!!!

TPRMumboDivv025.jpg.1f5dc53e194b4f44d7a54996d00b70ae.jpg

Scottish Steve made it to Lightwater Valley by accident. He was aiming for Alton Towers.

Doritos, Doritos for Divv!!! Snacky, snack, snack, snack, snack, snack!

Ah, memories of '06! Big Mike feeding a hotdog to a duck at Lightwater. Everybody else trying to choke down the "mystery meat" burgers. My right arm going numb after it slammed into the side of the train during the Ultimate's brutal second half. The pure weirdness (and fun) of the Rat Ride and the Toad Hole. Is Toad Hole even there anymore?

Divv3k - I might be the Overlord, but you are the Patron Saint of the Park Index.

 

I guess Grizzly Bear and Twister still don't have a proper signs.

 

 

And for the record, I enjoyed The Ultimate, once we got past the 5-6 minute lift hills.

Toad hole has gone - The parks "Big Wheel" is now situated there.

Also Grzzly Bear went at the end of last year, this is where the log flume is now. The park has stated they had too many problems with the coaster.

 

Some of the Hitler bears are at the park, but I wont tell you where !

Hitler bears?! WTF?! Whatever these are, sounds like something we'll definitely have to find on next year's trip.

 

Basically, they had carved wooden bears around the ride area, some had there 'paws' raised directly upwards in air ... looking somewhat like that salute

OMG you guys - WTF were you doing loading the spin mouse with two people on the left and only one on the right????????? No wonder it was LAME. Do it again - craaaazy I say, just craaaaazzzy!

^ All will become clear when I post my Scandi TR!

 

Larry, I'm happy to help out the park index in any way I can! I'll be sure to get a few more additions this coming weekend!

 

But now...

This has been a drunken Brit Crew night out, brought to you by Divv. Hope you enjoyed!

TPRMumboDivv023.jpg.2fe26d305b2a13914ab8e79cfc23cffd.jpg

Even on the bus home the Brit Crew have to take up the proper back of the bus seating configuration.

TPRMumboDivv022.thumb.jpg.aafabb8bd566f0e9ecda31cd3f6deb64.jpg

Well, not anymore.

TPRMumboDivv015.jpg.a9f341c26a11cd5ff152140c1c257b82.jpg

Please don't spit beer on me Steve!

TPRMumboDivv013.jpg.40cb62976fd259a60086fdf0616ef9c8.jpg

This is EXACTLY why I want an iPhone, so I can take photos like this.

TPRMumboDivv012.jpg.d508368e294b57ef64dde3af40b94b2e.jpg

iPhone geeks! (Yes, I'm just jealous!)

TPRMumboDivv009.jpg.a6b92337afef8c3201acb70107ced808.jpg

Yes, we're at the bar!

TPRMumboDivv007.thumb.jpg.701b4b2fc17981b7a15e609441ac4e9c.jpg

The battery might die at any minute so Lou makes sure we have the most important photos - reflection shots!

TPRMumboDivv006.thumb.jpg.e2d10811d8b58e5bd5cb579f307be944.jpg

Out in Manchester and Mike gives another shout out to our missing friends!

 

Better keep an eye on that exchange rate Andrew!

TPRMumboDivv005.jpg.f44a86f2dbe97d51d79253251b1bd60a.jpg

OMG, what the hell happened to Matt Damon?!

TPRMumboDivv004.jpg.2195274afe4f4c9a66e3d141778e4058.jpg

This any better?

TPRMumboDivv003.jpg.24d8ef1fab7d8b93b9287cf3471b4460.jpg

We sent this photo to Andrew on Saturday night. He complained that there wasn't enough beer.
