Where I stayed
The giant villa
It was pretty overcast today, the sky looked like a typical English day, but it was still 30 degrees. It was a good thing really, because I could avoid any major burning incidents. The first ride we went on was the Dolphin Plunge. On the adverts it looked like you'd leisurely glide through the tube, feeling as if you were actually swimming with the dolphins on either side of you. Unreality you hurtle through at about 100 miles an hour and couldn't’t really tell if you were flying past a saucer full of goldfish. Russ swore he saw a dolphin,but had to basically slow himself down to snail’s pace to do so.
Next up was Tassie’s Twisters. You have to ride down this together and it sends you into a giant bowl which you ride around until you drop through the hole
Russ decided to see what would happen if you didn’t hold onto the raft on the HooRoo Run, and ended up being slammed out of the raft,giving himself some serious water burn. The coolest old dude who was on duty was like 'I told you to hold on’. Now you know why.
Like Seaworld the day before we could see a storm rolling inform the distance, and at about 4pm the heavens literally tore apart. I have never seen rain like it, for a good hour it just fell down constantly. They ended up closing the park early, but Russ and I decided to pelt it to the car from the changing rooms. Hardly seemed worth having a shower because once again we received a total drenching, there seems to be a bit of a pattern forming here.
This evening we went to Medieval Times. We come from the land of castles and so it was pretty funny watching American’s trying to relieve the realms of knights and ladies. We were cheering for the Red Knight, who actually looked like our friend Rob on a horse. For authenticity you had to eat all of your food with your hands, and I really wanted one of the Medieval Times metal plates. We got to have our picture taken with the awesome bearded King, but at30 dollars we decided against actually buying it. It was seriously cheesy but great fun. Unfortunately our Red Knight did’t win, but I think we had the loudest crowd.
