Photo TR - Adventure Island - 10th Feb

Postby martinb » Sun Feb 11, 2007 3:32 am

Well yesterday was the time for my first UK park of 2007, but this visit was mainly because today was Rage's opening day.

I won't say too much, apart from Rage was very good, really enjoyed it, its good to finally get on a decent ride at Adventure Island.

Anyway, here's the pics:

Image
AI has changed forever!

Image
Before Rage officially opened, they added a second train, not that it was needed.

Image
The other train, keeping nice and dry

Image
Oo, its testing, should be open soon!

Image
Evan enjoys watching RAGE

Image
There I go!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Its very curvey, if a little rickerty.
Image

After a few goes on Rage, we decided to go have some lunch up at the high street.

Image
Possibly the worst named coaster on the planet, "Mighty Mini Mega"

Image
Evan enjoying his first ever Whopper at the age of 4

Image
Southends mahoosive peir

Image
Evan is turning out ot be a right little 'whore' :D

More photo's of Rage:

Image
Ti's a rather large peir, isn't it!

Image
Best looking Twister ever?

Image
Pay £16 for a wristband, yet you have to pay extra for the Dodgems :roll:

More Rage

Image
This ride is crap, basically

Image
I think Evans CC is about 12, not bad ofr a 4 year old.

Image
Wehay!
Image

Image
"I wanna go on Rage!"

Image
POV shot

Image
This coaster actually is quite good

Image
Possibly Evans favourite ride, EVER!

Image
Another shot of Rage

Image
I now actually think the Tri-track looks better than the 'flat track'

Image
Green Scream

Image
The 'cutback' on Rage is quite rickerty

Image
This actually used to be Evans favourite ride, but they have now raised the height limit of it from 1m to 1.2m so he can't go on it no more, well, untill he's grows to 1.2m, which will probably be in a year or so.

The same goes for the Dinghy Slide, now 1.2m instead of 1m, and it was another of Evans favourites. He's not impressed.

Image
And I finish this small Photo TR with this nice of AI just before it closed after Rages first day of operation.

Hope you enjoyed.

That ride does look like good fun, but is it a little short?

:lmao:
Awhhh we love the whip as well, it is a cool ride! (Evans favourite)

I think i must have been in a cloud some where as i did not know southend was getting a new coaster and we sat around all day bored thinking of something to do (was tempted to go to Thorpe park seeing as it opened yesterday but it peed down with rain so we changed out mind! lol)

I can see it fitting in really well there, ohh will have to plan a trip in the next few weeks.

Good report!

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Is it me, or does it seem like every picture of Rage has a mess of track in it? Anyway, Rage looks awesome. Great addition to the park, from pictures I've seen of it beforehand.

I have to add something . Even has a good coaster count but my son Thomas who is now 2 has a coaster count of 10. Which is good. I did also not that the hight restrictions have gone up which is a pain as I was looking forward to taking Thomas on that ride.

Great pics though and what a great ride for Adventure Island. :airtimer:
