Going to be mostly pictures from me, as I'm out of energy to write a lengthy text post. We were ready and waiting at 09:15 as instructed, without an IanFromCoasterForce in sight... Cú Chulainn was looking amazing in the sun in the morning: And it was riding even better, as proven by CF! This picture is possible my favourite from the trip. It's Ian, Jordan and Owain having an absolute blast in the front of the coaster - having just suffered through the awful overbank. I think it sums up everything CF is about for me - just goofing around with your friends, riding coasters (especially those with crazy zero cars) and having fun. I love it! Jordan looking glam: After the ERT, we did the zipline and the high-ropes, and then I think we just faffed for a bit - I really can't remember. Some of us then rode the Rotator, which looked (and sounded) vile. I think we faffed some more, ate some lunch and then just pottered around the rest of the park for a while. The factory tour was a let down, lunch was nice, Air Race was okay and the 5D cinema was bland. We really just wanted to go re-ride the coaster! Here, have some more pictures: Here are my thoughts on things: Cú Chulainn: Wow! What a coaster. This would be a great ride in any park, but for some reason Tayto decided to build it and it's bonkers. The layout is nice, a little let down by the overbank (which wasn't painful, just a bit... uncomfortable), but on the whole it was good. It was long, had a really nice amount of airtime and some nice headchoppers. Overall, I think it's great. Definitely the best woodie in the UK (although that'd hardly be hard) and definitely holds its own against some of the best in Europe/USA. Tayto Park: An odd place. The giant Mr. Tayto mascot, the abundance of crisps (including the free crisp collection on exit), the factory tour, the coaster (!), just the whole thing was odd. Thankfully, in a charming and hopefully promising way. The park was rammed, but to my mind that's only a good thing. If their first proper thrill ride was that coaster, what the are they going to put in next?! I can't wait to see it. A busy park means more money, means more development, means more awesome coasters. Considering I can get to Tayto Park faster than I can to Alton Towers (without a car), it's great to have it so close. Thanks for arranging everything Ian (and Charles), it was a fantastic Live! We then rocked out on the party bus on the way back into Dublin, and went for a Mongolian meal - which had plenty of comedic value as Ben and Nic have already alluded to. We then had many pints, and I took a picture: On Sunday we just minced around Dublin on Plod's amazing walking tour of Dublin. I can't put into words quite how entertaining this was - especially with the excellent quote "Her low-cut dress and large breasts were justified on the grounds that as "women breastfed publicly in Molly's time, breasts were popped out all over the place."". :lol: Finally we headed out the airport and all caught our respective flights home. It was great to finally come to a CF-Live again. My last formal CF meet-up was the Vampire 21st event back in 2011, nearly four years ago! It was nice to see so many CFers, some of whom I knew already, but many I met in person for the first time. So to all, thanks for making it an excellent weekend - I hope it wont' be as long until the next one!
