    Are the dates for plopsterix set yet? I'm looking at booking flights to the uk so want to make sure I'm back in time if it's happening.

    Definitely up for the Chessington meet, would be lovely to see you all in person. Potentially up for the Plopsterix as I bought my first car last weekend and would love to see it get put to good use plus I would love to go to both those parks.

    Here's the score regarding GhosterForce.

    I'm working two jobs, with very little time for much else during awake hours. Organising a huge trip like I have done in previous years is something I love to do, but it is also very time consuming. My two job situation is likely to stay in place until September, therefore I am currently unable to dedicate the huge number of hours required to arrange hotels, payments, car hire etc.

    With that in mind, and reading that several people are considering possible add-ons such as Denmark, on this occasion, it would be easier for me and those doing add-ons, if GhosterForce attendees arranged their own transport between parks and accommodation; in a similar vein to what's happening with the Plopsa/Asterix Live. I'm sorry if this puts people off attending but I'd rather everybody felt confident arranging stuff than having me do everything when my free time is sketchy!

    I will, of course, contact the parks to try to arrange a few perks group entry etc. I'll be doing the Faffle, doing the other random stuff I can think of and shepherding the group on the days. I'm now going to set up a GhosterForce planning topic so we can find out who's going, who's driving/has spaces and discuss places to stay.

    Again, I'm really sorry that this is a change from the typical Euro/GhosterForce Live organisation that we have come to expect, but right now it's the only way I can make it work, but the Plotrix Live has proved that it does work!

    That's absolutely fair enough Ian! I think a lot of us now are confident in booking our own :emoji_poop: anyway, and let's face it we'll likely all end up spending the night in similar places anyway.

    Because their staff looked after me really well last month and as I think they deserve an advert - I recommend this hotel for the Heide/Hansa leg; it's about halfway between them, so less than an hour's drive.
    https://www.leonardo-hotels.com/leonardo-hotel-hamburg-stillhorn - The prices were very reasonable (~30EUR pppn), their bar is good and has food, parking's free IIRC and it's just off the A1.

    For anyone looking to book resort accommodation for the PortAventura Live, there's free cancellation (up to 16th November) on the official PortAventuraWorld website, and on Booking.com.

    According to both sites the only remaining rooms are at Hotel PortAventura. Hotel El Paso is fully booked and the other ones aren't open all weekend, so unless there's different info on another website, it might be worth booking now if you're looking to stay on resort.

    Amazing! That's a dead good price.

    We're doing 3 nights as well. Defo not cheap on resort, but I've not been in 10 years and Liz has never been so don't mind paying a bit more this time around.

    ^I was just about to explain how Chessington wasn't really a priority trip for me this year, what with Waliplopsterix, Ghosterforce and PA etc... (I've done well to get that lot past Mrs Howie as it is!)
    .... But as it turns out, Mrs Howie is away that weekend doing horsey things. And while the cat's away etc....
    So yeah. I'm in.
