. It is an interactive water park and the kids had a great time getting soaked, Rich worked out how to join in the fun without getting wet. We spent a good couple of hours there before going exploring again. Paige went on the Woody coaster a few times before moving on. We went to the Simpsons. Rich took the older 3 while Rorke and I went on the twirl and hurl. While we waited we got to see Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa. Next was Men in Black, Rich and the older 3 did single rider so they could have a couple of goes. Rorke and I put the bag in the locker and went and qued. We then headed to the Transformers 3D ride which again Rich took the older 3. Rorke and I watched a Dora street show and he had a picture with her. Was pretty amusing as they had to get security around us as we were the last photo and there was a very unhappy vocal father that just wouldn't take no for an answer. We then went to see if we could go on E.T. but the queue was too long. We met up with the rest of them and headed back to the Ripride Rocket but even the single rider queue was too long. So Rich was going to take Paige on the Mummy but that was down so we sat and watched 4 guys doing a break dance street performance near the Mummy. As soon as the ride came up Rich and Paige shot off while we watched the rest of the show and then watched the Universal Superstar Parade. Then Courtney and Rich had a last go on the Rip Ride Rocket. Then it was time to head home for the night. Dinner, bath and bed.
Today I got up and did a run and I ventured around the West Village and ran part of the way on the golf cart path. When I got back everyone was up and ready we decided to head back to Universal studios for the day. When we got there we saw that the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit was up and running. We decided to do child swop and Paige just as we were nearing the front of the line decided she was going to try it. She and I went first and sat at the back we just chose a pop song to listen to as when I asked what happens if you don't make a choice the attendant said you just get techno and pulled his face. Oh my word, an amazing roller coaster but pretty hectic a real intro for Paige. Rich and Courtney went after us and true to form went for the front row, they loved it. Afterwards we headed to a favourite ride E.T. and then we went to sit in Fievel's Playground and the kids had a few goes on the water slide in a rubber dingy. Then the 3 older kids went on Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster before heading across to play in the area Curious George goes to town
