    Your favourite (and most hated) Theme Park Hotels/Accomodation

    My wife and I tend to stay on-site whenever we can at theme parks, partly because of the travel convenience (so nice waking up and walking to the turnstiles or collapsing back into bed after a day in the park) but also because it's all a part of the experience. In the places we've been to...

    Christmas in Orlando

    Not going to do a full report as we were there for 7 days. But thought I'd share some of the interesting bits about being in Orlando over Christmas. 1. Rise of the Resistance was insane, easily my favourite dark ride now and I think it sets a new bar for how dark rides will be judged. We got to...

    So when my wife and I go down to theme parks, we try to pick up a magnet from every one we've visited so far (pic attached) anyone found any spectacular ones?

Our only full days there will be the Sunday and Monday, so we're...

    Six Flags Great Adventure Trip May 2018
