    Parque de Atracciones de Madrid - 22/0-7/2022

    A quick trip report from a recent visit to Madrid's oldest theme park. My genius idea was to walk to the park in time for opening at 12, however it took more than 1 hr 30 from the city centre, and is quite remote too being situated in a national park type surrounding - not the best of walks on...

    My 100th cred in 'Great' Yarmouth

    A quick one - a visit to Great Yarmouth and six creds ticked off. Including my 100th! I've been on this forum 11 or 12 years so at this rate I'll hit my 200th in 2032. Back in February I visited Blackpool's Pleasure Beach and just missed my 100th due to the Big One's closure because of high...

    15th - 19th April - Efteling/ Toverland/ Efteling TR

    Aged 26, I finally managed to plan and execute a proper theme park trip. My tour started in The Netherlands and finished with Germany, running from Efteling to Toverland and to Phantasialand. It’s a pretty well-documented route but I’ll add my two cents for you to enjoy/ ignore as you wish. I...

    The Ultimate decapitates deer 29th September 2014

    So according to the ever-reliable Daily Mail a deer managed to navigate around the perimeter fence that surrounds The Ultimate and was hit by one of the trains. To be honest it could have ended up much worse for the passengers as the deer was only young and not a full-sized adult. My favourite...

    Parc Asterix 2012

    Hi all, I have arrived back home from a trip to Paris and I thought I would write a bit about my visit to Parc Asterix. As it was my first time, I do not have much to compare it with in terms of changes but I would say that the entrance area and first part of the park looked very much like a...
