Wildfire in the fog today, one of the best.
I’m planning a trip to Fantasy Island and hoping to tick off that Little Dipper at Cleethorpes whilst on the way. Just wondering how much you paid to get on it?Today I finally rode Little Dipper at Mack's Amusements in Cleethorpes - a cred that's evaded me for longer than I'd care to admit.
It's hilarious, the way it awkwardly sits on the beach and rattles around looking like a cardboard cutout rather than a real ride. According to RCDB, it might also be one of the country's oldest rides!
There's a very nice picture of it on RCDB - https://rcdb.com/3314.htm#p=79941
Unfortunately, it rides like a sack of spanners and feels on the verge of collapse - the sign fell down in the station just in the time I was queuing for it. Apparently, I'd paid for six laps but the staff kindly let me off after two. It's also in Cleethorpes, which is as grim as the nearby Grimsby.
2/10 - the very definition of a one and done.
...but God, am I happy to finally tick that one off!
(Honourable mention to the staff for disinfecting the train between cycles)
