Hi everyone!

 

It's been a few months since I've been able to do a proper "Brit Crew update" so I'm happy to bring this totally biased and inaccurate telling of events of our recent weekend based out of Bristol.

 

Originally this trip was planned as a journey to visit the Crystal Maze before it closed, but alas we were too late and it closed about a week after TPR visited in June. But still, we'd put together the framework of a good weekend and all we really wanted to do was get drunk so we went anyway!

 

UPDATES:

Part 1: OAKWOOD (Below)

Part 2: CONEY BEACH

Part 3: BARRY ISLAND

Part 4: REFLEX!

Part 5: BREAN LEISURE PARK

 

My only previous visit to Oakwood was in 2008 when I found a really nice park with not a lot of people. That opinion really hasn't changed since this visit. They have two great coasters in Megafobia and Speed as well as a few other quirky attractions that make for quite a unique day.

 

Now, if only this place was closer I'd visit more often!

 

Here's the photos...

Hello Oakwood! You're a lot brighter than my last visit!

image002.jpg.9b4fcc9a5f6927326997d96b99466202.jpg

Here’s today’s heroic cast of Brit Crew characters who made the long journey to the south of Wales!

image003.jpg.356207e69727720629faa7eef6901993.jpg

There can only be one first stop at Oakwood – The Magician! Or Megafobia if the magician isn't around...

image004.jpg.d305bd71dec458f17fe650c0d55c7abc.jpg

Stop blocking out the sun, Anth!

image005.jpg.58dc8cc5a5bab8e22980ae70ee47937c.jpg

Megafobia was running really good today. Even better than my last visit in 2008!

image006.jpg.990064ffccb33ee5940013430cd2b4fa.jpg

Megafobia will definitely move up a few spots in my rankings this year. While it’s not an amazing woodie by any means I can imagine there must have been an incredible ride in there when it first opened.

image007.jpg.8c61925b102d888b852d59f75e368abe.jpg

Wow, Anth looks super excited for some Euro-fighter action!

image008.jpg.9712e40f67214ca5ab5b5e91f2624d73.jpg

I’m pleased to report that Speed is STILL my favourite Euro-fighter in the world!

image009.jpg.2aa90c4c18cde99b4cc2ee8be5c3d192.jpg

Loopy, loop, loop, loop, loop.

image010.thumb.jpg.ee7cd5d879b7a0b402243c56ac46649c.jpg

Aah, the rug is trying to escape!

image011.jpg.e6e18ead7515f94cdc67c8053540cd27.jpg

Sadly, the “Tea Trays”, one of Oakwood’s best attractions were closed today.

image012.jpg.2b4ab9d6cc35984d2dc973c2f8409e48.jpg

You’ll just have to make do with the waterslide of death, Mr. Fudge!

image013.jpg.57febbdde462ee4ecbdb937a86c1d7ca.jpg

Everyone ready to frolic amongst the treetops? Good!

image014.jpg.b5268dd20d7dd7787777f093cfd9f54e.jpg

Apparently iPhone is the official mobile phone of the Brit Crew.

image015.jpg.16a20f5473be9754b275c424f034e987.jpg

Bow down to the phallic icon, Sir Campsalot!

image016.jpg.5fd3601f68194aecb5d4a709aad390e6.jpg

Does Scottish Steve prefer beavers or balls? We’re not really sure!

image017.jpg.022a5eea0660f9426e33764782b7d48d.jpg

Zebra attack!

image018.jpg.f84afaa7c8cf3d09a611a919e8f0909e.jpg

TPFail.

image019.thumb.jpg.54241f9322978016efa66c8f4ff8f87f.jpg

This is quite possibly the filthiest example of credit whoring in Brit Crew history. We had to find a ride op in the kiddie area and ask him to operate the coaster! TPDave being the fun-loving arse that he is already had the credit and persuaded the op to send us round nine times. TPTit.

image020.jpg.480cdd0b690b873f07d5134844ed8aad.jpg

We're sad. Pathetic too.

image021.thumb.jpg.570d776afe442292c4e484993164a929.jpg

Everyone but Dave Fudge was brave enough to go down this slide. Truth.

image022.jpg.7d44c648dbf59b5c62aa0ac936eea7c5.jpg

Steve: No Limits.

image023.thumb.jpg.c0ab2ace88bb3bb1c6e879db23ace89b.jpg

Yay, Alpine Slide!

image024.jpg.1dd15ab71da611462ab08f35a7babe4e.jpg

Hurry up, Steve. You don't want Anth to block you out too!

image025.jpg.cf3e43996bae41b483a5aec891d20528.jpg

Steve’s rug is going to become athe scariest part of the Spooky 3D attraction for today only.

image026.jpg.f40d3f015919b17cbae57b1257be595c.jpg

Woohoo, we're about to ride Brer Rabbit’s acid trip!

image027.jpg.bad32ae370d77b53819825bc459d083b.jpg

The ride essentially tells the story of the night when some drunken Southern Englishman with a mohican haircut invaded the burrow and started the craziest party known to rabbits.

image028.jpg.fd426322c3016c5a822dbda282b9eaad.jpg

This has to be one of the most messed up kid’s dark rides ever built!

image029.jpg.4095e6a670da26f297b28e9fc1b30d54.jpg

Say goodbye to TPiPhone…

image030.thumb.jpg.f6b096f713294cad792db5889a1fd7fe.jpg

As it is now PPiPhone!

image031.jpg.eaaa838750abacd4d8143324aa76b202.jpg

Ah, Hydro. Surely none of our group were stupid enough to ride this today!

DivvTPRBristol0105.jpg.31b07454f1d914a0137a885ff999c622.jpg

You would certainly need an armageddon coat to withstand this...

image032.jpg.2acd1b3563d1d2a1b8517472225695dc.jpg

Well done guys, it's only a two hour drive back to Bristol!

image033.jpg.b291ba4cf8c0c74c2dbb9882f55b5923.jpg

Now go hug TPDave!

image034.jpg.dbab0077b6aa1fae51d380c4bd29a054.jpg

Entire group photo! Thanks for an awesome day guys!

image035.thumb.jpg.c60033c1792bde855330d868a397bae3.jpg

Oakwood was really good once again! Even for a Saturday the place was really quiet, which worked out really well for us!

 

There's some Welsh credit whoring action to come later!

Awesome Trip Report Divv. It's cool how even in small groups you are on the ground in the group photo. I'm also happy to see that Oakwood repainted their entrance to match the Intimidatour shirts.

A completely unbiased and realistic account of the first park of the weekend. I look forward to the next installment where such truths as 'Mike Fudge joins us at Barry Island' and 'Divv didn't boogie on down in Reflex' and 'OMG, it's only Dave Wilson'.

 

I defeated the death slide and you bloody know it...

 

The drinking is coming, trust me...

Hey I'm in one of your pics!

 

I was in front of you on Megafobia - thought I recognised one of the faces but it wasn't until much later in the day did I work out from where!

 

Anyway, just to prove it; heres a paparazzi style stalker shot...

 

TPR.jpg.0408c3a15b42c186ee4acc86c2a012d2.jpg

Whats going on here then?

 

I'd like to point out that I did not lower myself to the kiddie-credit; some of us have (a little) self-respect.

 

You might have clocked me later on I was trying to take some shots of Hydro, but they didn't really work. Speed from earlier in the day came out OK though;

Nice!

I wish you'd come up and said hey! Cool stalker photo though!

 

Larry, I think we jumped the shark a LONG time ago!

Part Two

CONEY BEACH

 

Seeing as there was no Crystal Maze for us to enjoy after our time in Oakwood we decided to take advantage of being on Wales' South coast and whore up some really ghetto parks.

 

The first park was the infamous-on-TPR Coney Beach. Sadly there's only one kiddie coaster here now since the Pinfari Death Looper was removed but there's still plenty of ghetto death to go around (well there's a powered coaster too which we didn't ride, but I hear you don't even have to ride that one to count the credt. Right, Big Mike? ).

 

I'm not sure I can say much more about this glorious, glorious place. here's the photos...

image001.thumb.jpg.0d62ac9e8b3efbdce8a153e51cd2d05e.jpg

Brace yourselves! We’ve arrived at one of TPR’s favourite ghetto, ghetto parks – Coney Beach!!!

image002.thumb.jpg.c58c07ed7ca185742a3e5c5d9b55658e.jpg

Hey, hey it's Hooka Anth!

image003.jpg.19b42612ecda6178e9c1404df717f3ea.jpg

Whatever you do, don’t pull Scottish Steve’s finger. You WILL end up looking like Stewie.

image004.jpg.4cd8eb6345ba0a171752270ec93e6fbc.jpg

OMG, new attraction alert!!! I guess we;'ll need to plan another big Brit Crew weekend for next year!

image005.thumb.jpg.47770bef15a2a1733e05865c40baab92.jpg

Dave’s got his cash ready to use Coney Beach’s state of the art lavatory facilities.

image006.jpg.9292f6f8d3df07a7bc19380b2ac9b513.jpg

Let’s check out Mega Blitz, the park’s Pinfari looper…

image007.jpg.cf4805a4e538a2df659dcc19c36f44fe.jpg

Wow, this might be my favourite Pinfari looper ever!

image008.jpg.3656e93f0cbd2e7c6ee3a8f92cd61bc5.jpg

I’d say that this coaster has seen better days but I’m not entirely sure that would be true!

image009.jpg.3776d028501144c56029dc44834830a0.jpg

Dave bought enough tokens so that he wouldn’t have to leave Coney Beach ever, ever again.

image010.jpg.d65aa393104420b4b89b3292a77cbbaf.jpg

OMG, it’s Nessie!!!

image011.jpg.01c25de32e658b58c7f1a49fe60fc475.jpg

It's only (another) sad and pathetic Brit Crew takeover!

image012.jpg.7bc43cb722d7837ea1032fc207d2de6c.jpg

I think we’re on course for the most creepy and disturbing Brit Crew excursion yet!

image013.jpg.e04f6807183de856a4935c99d2117499.jpg

We tried to get in the funhouse but the op feared that we might trample all the kiddies. That was WAY more responsibility than I was ever expecting from this place!

image014.jpg.b53a823ef628b4ec971a6b29f8f24605.jpg

Dave’s a bit apprehensive about Coney Beach’s super scary ghost train.

image015.jpg.05f6f11eecec833b72484ace78b4ecc9.jpg

DEATH RIDE!!!

image016.jpg.3dbc769d3944be8d2058e0e717b14995.jpg

Seriously Steve, you’d have loved this guy!

image017.jpg.9f03ee330224eb5d590a2609d6feb985.jpg

"The naked monster only had one boob, but it was THIS big!"

image018.thumb.jpg.915ee7470cbf5d3b0bc4a9c279497a69.jpg

Coney Beach also has a VERY high quality haunted walkthrough!

image019.thumb.jpg.7c0d563b07616438331a01e59b0822cf.jpg

I could have swore I saw at least one of these guys at East Coast Bash.

image020.jpg.b6430228d803479213c68bc142fce86f.jpg

TPEmo.

image026.jpg.9a6f581cc79a8183daa332df14dfdf87.jpg

Yes, Dave. They’re hot. But they’re just paintings, and you’re engaged.

image021.jpg.9a0a26177cfd64804720c9c33c3e0c98.jpg

Dodgem takeover!

image022.jpg.8b031d8c0208b0839492f9769cf811f6.jpg

Mmmmmmm… Coney Beach cuisine! You won’t have to eat again for the rest of the weekend!

image023.thumb.jpg.4798340dd7e1fbd22186232b4660c7ee.jpg

Anth’s all about the baby love.

image024.jpg.12ae5f2eb6489aa6c700d4383188c20d.jpg

Phew… It’s good to see that the Welsh seaside resorts are booming!

image025.thumb.jpg.4a374c3fe4a4afc5b5c97467bd4edc95.jpg

With questionable seafood in hand we’re heading out of Coney Beach to somewhere which is, believe it or not, even MORE ghetto!

 

The awe-inspiring Barry Island report will be up later!

Part Three:

BARRY ISLAND

 

So this was a park I knew pretty much nothing about. Other than the fact that RCDB said that it had a credit I knew it was a seaside park and nothing more.

 

This was a real surreal park visit, we got tho the park and while it was totally open to the public as we walked up the midway we saw that pretty much every ride in the park had been abandoned and left to rot! Even crazier was that most of the rides weren't even boarded up or blocked off. You could walk up the entrance ramps and onto the loading bays if you wanted to. It was all a bit weird and pretty sad as some of the rides looked like they might have been pretty good in their day!

 

Even weirder was this one corner of the park which had a few operating rides! So they let you walk through the abandoned portion of the park with all the cool looking rides only to let you walk to the crappy bit at the back with about three operating rides. Weird.

 

I really am amazed this place is still open. I can't see it staying for long, so really I guess I should be glad I got to visit when I did! Photos probably tell the story better, so here you go...

image001.jpg.53094f592336650311bccdc2dbcc8570.jpg

Okay so here we are at Barry Island. Looks quite nice and inviting, though a bit quiet…

image002.jpg.6ad00a87ba3b70ce064fafdf67370e54.jpg

We're about to find that the words "Barry" and "Pleasure" don't really go well together!

image003.jpg.3bc4b808e37d19c98526b78e6cc9f7a8.jpg

Oh look, a credit! But no, it’s closed… Well the entrance is open but there’s no one operating the ride…

image004.jpg.1156f408f552ed4a155a109c481c840d.jpg

Looks like this one hasn’t operated in a while!

image005.jpg.af5d925ac0925f35ba7f927147208378.jpg

Hold on everyone, I’ll operate this ride!

image006.jpg.d888d4369a3a25a5331a9cb993c207c1.jpg

It was just weird seeing a ride totally abandoned but without any kind of fencing or signs telling people to keep away!

image007.thumb.jpg.47abd723e3efa5fb595d234507d4a3db.jpg

I mean I could have sat in the abandoned coaster if I’d wanted to! We actually had to restrain TPDave from pushing this car up the lifthill and riding it down himself!

image008.jpg.5e7dda502f37ce6bde960ff972734541.jpg

Just in case you ever need it, Larry!

image009.jpg.85404a6730fd827172c9c72f6753bcba.jpg

But wait, there ARE rides operating at Barry Island!

image010.jpg.bfa948007414e64bb2e4cc9d2ed75a17.jpg

This one looks a bit too grown up and mature for us.

image011.thumb.jpg.f5b750762fdf932b45aa5d63c684647c.jpg

THIS is more our level!

image012.thumb.jpg.efafcd3ce4ab0d48b93e7714f0e0a0c9.jpg

Yup we went all the way to the semi-abandoned amusement park and whored the place!

image013.jpg.0b3e3aa157e42ce5601a89d41768fea1.jpg

Here’s the best part - it took two ride ops to STOP the ride at the end!!!

image014.jpg.2a5756ea958f61dd844f0395fcb64bef.jpg

These guys were just hammering and nailing the rotor the whole time we were there. They may have been employees or may just have been stripping it down for parts, I’m not quite sure.

image015.jpg.9a50f10088ca5c469a17cdc77c85fbee.jpg

Well that’s all the operating rides covered, back to the abandoned ones!

image016.jpg.9f496b556de3e8cb5b1c973a63992970.jpg

It's a closed and abandoned ghost train. Steve thinks they should all be like this!

image017.jpg.c3154ef62379282a4a7c1165165f20b5.jpg

Cute AND depressing!

image018.jpg.7252db5d6f986917f502b0db1f60ea87.jpg

This was about as stringent as the security around the abandoned stuff got. The rope didn’t even encompass the entire area that had crap in it!

image019.jpg.e5855b3ff929b7f1cc515c20f63b75ae.jpg

Dave’s pretty upset that the tow boat ride that he enjoyed as a kid is now all gone. Either that or he just saw a busted lamppost.

image020.jpg.69336a809d8b03f0b359492141a41f6c.jpg

Looks like some hobo’s set up a home in the old dark ride!

image021.jpg.4bc5808f6bcd5758cd758336b34740e5.jpg

Can you blame them? It looks like quite a safe home that even comes with an alligator and a moat to protect you.

image022.jpg.77cb5be73ff5c58fd3f3a4aed241cbc5.jpg

The whole place pretty much abandoned apart from that one corner. I don’t understand why they keep this part open to the public!

image023.thumb.jpg.e41d61affac8783784d00067d3fd5384.jpg

These guys all picked the pink elephant log to pose in! Is anyone surprised?

image024.thumb.jpg.f304eca1afaaf7fe61df8b6424baab5d.jpg

Looks like the log flume has seen better days.

image025.jpg.7aeb4ead2ef2165158889ae8d6f4efa9.jpg

Anth’s got his two tickets and is ready to ride!

image026.jpg.375f7849feb21eaf6d3b38f5566fb399.jpg

Maybe not today, Anth!

image027.thumb.jpg.f12c05e89eba2a76f3e1fd8a7730ed2e.jpg

Like the coaster, the Log Flume entrance was open and you could just walk up the entrance and down to the loading platform.

image028.jpg.74767eaf0e5deac18255226b13657b2a.jpg

Okay, which one fills the trough?

image029.jpg.9e9790eb01a601be1c9a45bcc8e888da.jpg

If you ever you forget where you are in the UK, just check the teacup.

image030.jpg.20d44dfcb1fea839e56b35794dd199b2.jpg

That’ll be an abandoned TV then.

image033.thumb.jpg.65f2b6ffacc5c93e020a5102f2e53fd7.jpg

It was pretty freaky just walking around the abandoned place. Again, I don’t understand why they haven’t closed all this off!

image032.jpg.66542a530f1df553c53628137f14bd7d.jpg

Cheer up guys, there’s still a food stall open!

image034.jpg.a1682d4265780f8b76c1669610bb0524.jpg

Freakiest Thomas ever!

image035.jpg.a0eb2a756ffc241967a2f776cc086538.jpg

I think this pretty much sums it all up.

image036.jpg.f48dee1f4576a61130753011e3dc2c92.jpg

Maybe they’re just gonna leave it like this another ten years so they can have that big 100 year bash!

image037.jpg.d416a5b88a392feb0853e1e37a162580.jpg

Of course Barry Island Pleasure Park only existed in the first palce because of the lovely, lovely beach next to it!

image038.thumb.jpg.f592d7873e7a3685d95dd614baf604ce.jpg

There’s something very “TPR” about the bins here!

image039.thumb.jpg.b8b14deb0b63b7890151aa5f41feac36.jpg

Hi Erik!

image040.jpg.460a4277a5b513cd5f2bd3c56c8bb302.jpg

This summer’s number seller.

Dave loves to play with Smelly Fun Balls!

image042.jpg.441c589cb5a67025951e6bef465d47b3.jpg

Okay guys, stop being emo, we’re gonna go drinking soon!

image043.thumb.jpg.82b24fc510df95af0be7f9c3828d5245.jpg

Dave Fudge tries so hard to look hard but he still comes across as totally camp!

image044.thumb.jpg.cbf386ff790d1887c73e081d0373bad4.jpg

Bye bye Barry Island! I look forward to reading the news report of 100 refugees found living in a Haunted Mine in South Wales.

 

Boozy Reflex fun is up next!

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

image001.jpg.e73288a6c3a5dffc03a38af0de7d1c02.jpg

Here we are at the Brit Crew's favourite chain restaurant in the UK - Wagamama!!!

image002.jpg.ed357f297e2a7e98853f02e8f9029a76.jpg

If you've never tried Wagamama before then you absolutely must!

image003.thumb.jpg.62ffaaa154e7626f0e0c8cf5cde42baa.jpg

Go try it NOW!!!

image004.jpg.ec992bdfb4fd8f2d06ad697d43c9cee4.jpg

OMG, we're in TPFlat!!!

image005.jpg.106ca4f45f4571e362ea2a7d450d2d92.jpg

TPRoom invasion!

image006.jpg.2fd20728b29a08eb67924e491574a0d2.jpg

Yup, Bristol has a Reflex! Why else would we choose this city?!

image007.jpg.5cac992f195d61d6e28a1912343b918a.jpg

OMG, Anth's trying to squeeze one out on the dance floor!

image008.jpg.8eea5374f36ffe30cfb62bd0f3f5be7e.jpg

Bristol, meet The Rug.

image009.jpg.ac38740638165d447420a5b72f246331.jpg

Hold on to that feeling!!!

Steve's giving Bristol a huge eyeful of Rug tonight!

Wrong chord, Steve.

Unfortunately for Dave and Amy, they were NOT the best dancers in Reflex tonight.

image013.thumb.jpg.3f4e9bc2e0bb1f20ec7da4ae4bbcddf8.jpg

No, that honour goes to the weird, crazy guy who was hanging on the pole all night.

Raz Ool! Words to live by!

As always the Brit Crew had an absolute blast at Reflex!

Another boozy night at Reflex comes to a close. Let's hope there aren't too many sore heads in the morning, as we're heading off to 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...

The final park of our little excursion out of Bristol is Brean Leisure Park!

Oh yeah, we can’t forget to say “Hi Erik!”

image003.jpg.ef841a80fa91d07976866f8ed4feced2.jpg

Okay, let’s get into “Fun City” and find some rides.

image004.thumb.jpg.5172b24deecdbe0581ec14f974e42b79.jpg

WIPEOUT!!!

image005.thumb.jpg.4c020c4f8b1603f353561c3a4b4252a5.jpg

Check out all my shiny little nuggets of golden token!

Kiddie coaster number FOUR of the weekend!

image007.jpg.4ea73f0f60cdbeea37ecda8e009ab6da.jpg

This isn’t just any kiddie coaster though…

image008.jpg.3e201e5e6705fd27d4eea732136573a2.jpg

This coaster goes straight through Mickey’s UK retreat!

image009.thumb.jpg.8d1c8827c6cba995b673343ecd303a24.jpg

iNerd!

image010.thumb.jpg.39d3fd52b92d39370e0034d49e93105e.jpg

Wow, double-hander.

image011.thumb.jpg.3d6bf7e55aab8ff83022f971350237b8.jpg

Uh oh, looks like Brad’s got a Fudge tumour coming out his ass.

image012.jpg.f9bfe4fcf4454b1860896dd082d1e63a.jpg

Oh dear lord.

image013.jpg.e4645272689d5fe4e153122be6cc9cdb.jpg

This can’t be fun. At all.

image014.thumb.jpg.8b347a5bfe690c05a3dc306c4ce90110.jpg

Amy clearly doesn’t understand what is about to happen. She looks WAY too happy!

image015.jpg.9d02cc38bf1065142dece521ac0ab97c.jpg

TPFear.

image016.thumb.jpg.47aa071c875d237694f919654084ab50.jpg

Now that’s HOT!

image017.thumb.jpg.d18f7cb0acc9b3dbebf23b33cd68a355.jpg

Scottish Steve rode this Ghost Train and LOVED it!

image018.jpg.f688c6d1d66bf412433bdf7724510550.jpg

Who are we kidding, we couldn’t get him near the thing!

image019.jpg.7098f1f6fa226ce0879c4d4d06620fc4.jpg

Probably a good thing too because he would have died.

image020.jpg.de4e43524c82beb24c682ef56f9b25cc.jpg

Seriously, this was one of the BEST ghost trains I’ve ever rode!

image021.jpg.88d51e867c89e66eb6b93c2cf46bd32e.jpg

Terror Castle is not your usual carnie-style ghost train. It really was messed up!

image021.jpg.bc0c05482ae7eb775a221615567d55bd.jpg

Steve’s probably lucky he read the sign before we even got a chance to convince him to ride!

image023.jpg.1d684da5a3c97d76f1c960659a90dea6.jpg

OMG, Anth’s being “erased from existence” Back to the Future style!

image024.thumb.jpg.00160977c0c794e300b6976e77022a16.jpg

These guys rule when it comes to playing with balls.

image025.jpg.1ccca37b26f073d12ca815efda90709d.jpg

It’s only bloody Dave Wilson.

image026.thumb.jpg.916182a31df31431dcc330842f059f19.jpg

Sooty managed to crap out a pretty panther-friendly TPBracelet.

image027.jpg.414b68456732fd1bcf12b2c236b7ec7c.jpg

All the main characters from the Brean stable were out on display today!

image028.jpg.bb060ffab0f31c7bc2f80dd2dfd1727b.jpg

I’d try to write a caption for this photo but I’d probably make an arse of it.

image029.jpg.0a5ac5c78d4304c9e292df9846557fab.jpg

Best themed Kentucky Derby ever!

image030.thumb.jpg.ed3aa649f216ad3bfd579af88f00941f.jpg

Steve’s special, so special.

image031.jpg.9ce44a0137dcb6c2de1fd9aaa651b64a.jpg

Anth’s just checking into Wendy’s house.

image032.jpg.2b1ea19aa47a1e757df0b60ea7ec15da.jpg

One credit to go, and it’s a good one.

image033.jpg.b5f9c90cb9658038437850605d06f5a4.jpg

Everyone ready for a couple of minutes of Reverchon bliss?

 

(What the hell is Steve doing to that stuffed toy?!)

image034.jpg.9fb27f0e168285979d81f422bd22e6a1.jpg

NO JAZZ HANDS!!!

image035.jpg.0bad3397402a0f203e334dd68a69ea0c.jpg

This one spun. I didn’t like it.

image036.jpg.fbf825b89ba5c7a2124d1a6a0afffa92.jpg

TPDave is such a nerd that he had to update his coaster count on the exit platform!

image037.jpg.25d0cc6769a29055f1bd90578ff57b79.jpg

Random flat ride.

image038.jpg.7b70b5caef141abb438f6e9855443ca2.jpg

UNSACTIONED TPExpression!

image039.jpg.e4e2c4ca2379b4a9529a372b4dec2d89.jpg

The market right outside Fun City has some really choice items for sale.

image040.jpg.35f81868d3661a0b0667d0ab9284a0b8.jpg

What’s this? New coaster?

image041.jpg.e1d904198dbe1b3f6fc5f23881643cd7.jpg

Anth seems pretty excited about this one. I wonder why?

image042.jpg.ff139d6077bf95a15af8e03cd53986cb.jpg

It’s Space Invader 2 from Blackpool! Pretty soon this thing will be enclosed with the world’s largest pineapple or something like that.

image043.jpg.6ce5f72e38f8f9208c16acd4b73966d9.jpg

Geeky “train on the grass” photo.

image044.jpg.fa12dd36386872430eeef45166f4573b.jpg

Looks like it’s just about ready for a roof and some walls!

image045.jpg.c51d21638ef792c4cb2e170338a92f5a.jpg

Truth.

image046.jpg.6b80546515063a4b1859909ce7426272.jpg

California – Florida – Tokyo – Paris – Hong Kong – Brean.

image047.thumb.jpg.84c924af213de7b8670eb0b96d1b45d9.jpg

Well this was an awesome weekend! Thanks to all my Brit Crew cohorts who joined in the fun!

 

Hope you enjoyed this trip report. Thanks for reading!
