    FYI, I do have an Icon based Live name but I'm saving that for 2018 when it's open!

    Anyway, our annual trip to Blackpool is just over a month away!

    When?
    Saturday 20th May. Meet inside the park by the entrance of the Grand National by 10:30. The park is scheduled to open at 10am and close at 7pm.

    How much?
    A ride wristband costs £22 if bought 10 days before our visit, so by the 10th May. Buy here: https://www.blackpoolpleasurebeach.com/wristbands

    Who's coming along to perv over Icon construction and enjoy the usual fabness Blackpool has to offer?!

    Oh dear, this is that time again? If things line up I'll be there as well (depending on how stressed I'll be in May). :)

    Im not 100% sure on this one yet, it sits bang in the middle of my exams. I'd like to think i'll need a break from revision and will be able to justify a weekend away but its more likely that i won't have even started by then.

    I'd love to come, but it's a real burden to get to from Norwich! Plus I'm planning on a cross country romp for fforest coaster the following week!

    or £11 + £2.50 in Tesco tokens, or £9.50 in Tesco tokens (think these offers don't have the 10 day cutoff either)
    Bargains.

    Seems unlikely as I need to be in Derby that evening. I was thinking kiddy creds in Birmingham/Warwick or the new thing in Southport if that takes your fancy?

    That's a point, I do need the creds in the Midlands. And it's closer to home. Hmmm.

    Just FYI - I don't think the new cred in Southport is open yet; apparently it took heavy damage during Storm Doris which delayed its opening indefinitely.
    Southport don't even list it on their website.

    Ahh thanks very much for that. Imagine getting to Southport and finding there aren't any creds to get. The word bleak doesn't even come close.

    Just a heads up, I'm bringing two of my semi-goon mates along to this - Big Col and Ginger Si.
    You'll know which one is which :D
