Both kids get caught in a tidal wave, watch what happens
I chose to take them there on a school day just to avoid the crowds and school is almost finished anyway so they are not missing anything but we forgot that this time of year many schools take their annual trip, many of them ended up in Thorpe Park, it was PACKED!
Most rides had a waiting time of between 45 minutes to 2 hours! I hate queuing for anything and would never do it for myself but when you have kids you do not have much choice.
Apart from school kids, there was many Arab tourists mainly from the Gulf and a lot of British couples, a word of warning if you decide to go there on a busy day, they have this new Fastrack system where if you want to jump the long queue then you pay extra money (£3 per person) on top of what you already paid, the kids really wanted to go on the tidal wave ride which is a great ride but it had 1hour & 20 minutes wait so I had to buy these fastrack tickets just for this ride, what a big con it was! the fast track queue was just as long as the normal queue and we ended up waiting 1 hour & 10 minutes! a complete waste of money. In all it was a very enjoyable day on a day that we have been told was the last dry day for a while, looks like summer is finished here.
The end result, thank God they had a change of clothes and it was a hot day
Can somebody tell me what it is with this new trend in London? why is it that most men and women (young & old) are wearing flip flops (Shibshib) everywhere? even going through central London it is becoming a normal sight and believe me in a polluted city like London, it really is not a pretty sight to look at dirty feet!
becoming SHLAFTI is trendy now :o)
