Dumb Yank (living in Japan) question:

What's an Irn Bru?
There's a coaster at Blackpool with that in the name, and now an indoor carnival, too?

Great pictures till now, Tom. It looks like you had some fun. A indoor fair must be really cool! I am looking forward for part 3!

Irn Bru is a soft drink - never tried it myself...
I think it could be Scotland's version of Beverly !!

USCoaster - I know it's not Rachel, that was just the closest I could think of. COULD be Cheryl.... Bit too much boobage and the eyes are all wrong though. Not that this is an important issue! :lolr:

Chris - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irn_Bru Should be more than enough info for you there, I'll buy you a bottle in June if all goes to plan. ;)

Enjoying the hot Scottish summer!

Irn-Bru = Sickly sweet bubble-gum flavored orange soda (my opinion of course). Supposedly it is Scotland's second national drink (after your alcohol of choice) and is supposed to have amazing anti-hangover properties. And as my sister found out after she brought some back from Scotland, it will take the copper off a penny.

For those in the Los Angeles area, the British grocery stores usually have it. And the Virgin Megastores around California (the country?) usually have some in stock near the Virgin Cola or "authentic British crap" table...
