Photo TR: Legoland & Thorpe Park

Postby Divv3k » Mon Apr 06, 2009 2:10 pm

Hi people!

A bunch of British TPR members couldn't wait til June for the Scandi Trip to start so we needed to come up with some excuse to go get drunk and stay up late earlier! With Thorpe Park opening Saw: The Ride recently we had the perfect excuse we needed. On top of Saw a few people in the group hadn't been to Legoland before which we felt would provide a nice complement to the madness of Thorpe. We had a great weekend!

Updates...
LEGOLAND (below)
WAGAMAMA & HOTEL BAR!
THORPE PARK

So the first day we did Legoland. I just love this place. It's probably the best themed park in the UK next to Alton Towers and its just tons of fun. We weren't quite sure if we could do a whole day at Legoland but we found that when you have a great group of people you can spend a whole day there very easily!

Without doubt the best ride at Legoland is Fire Academy, there's nothing funnier than competing against your friends and pumping away! Check out Steve's video (keep an eye on Anth!):

Here's some photos...

Brad's excited because we're at Legoland!!!
DivvTPRLT016.jpg
The first stop was the "new for 2009" shooting dark ride - Laser Raiders!
DivvTPRLT017.jpg
Beware pickpockets in training when in the queue!
DivvTPRLT018.jpg
The queue is littered with Lego "artifacts". Luckily these are bolted down in case people try and move them.
DivvTPRLT020.jpg
Lou loves generic Egyptian heads.
DivvTPRLT023.jpg
The ride itself is good fun. Maybe not worth the long waits but it's nice to have another dark ride in the UK.
DivvTPRLT024.jpg
The Battle of the Daves is reaching all new levels of gore and brutality!
DivvTPRLT026.jpg
If you visit Legoland on a weekend you're not allowed to queue up for it. The only way you can ride is by picking up one of these "fastpasses".
DivvTPRLT031.jpg
Whilst we waited for our Jungle Coaster slot we laughed at each other on the Wave Surfer.
DivvTPRLT044.jpg
Waiting for Steve to pass and pressing the water bomb button was a fun game!
DivvTPRLT047.jpg
I'll let you think of your own dirty caption for this one!
DivvTPRLT048.jpg
Today's lunch and DNA menu is brought to you by Steve.
DivvTPRLT025.jpg
Ooh a ride sign! We must have rode this next!
DivvTPRLT051.jpg
No you are not seeing things.
DivvTPRLT052.jpg
That is indeed an enclosed car!
DivvTPRLT057.jpg
Greenhouse POV.
DivvTPRLT058.jpg
The greenhouse makes it a very loud experience as the bits all smack against each other through the ride.
DivvTPRLT060.jpg
We tried bribing the ride ops to lock them in. Unfortunately the Legoland employees are way too honest.
DivvTPRLT064.jpg
I guess this means we did The Dragon next.
DivvTPRLT066.jpg
Dave is always on the lookout for new ways of attracting females.
DivvTPRLT068.jpg
Looks like it worked!
DivvTPRLT070.jpg
Beware the curses of Generic Wizard Man.
DivvTPRLT071.jpg
The evil dragon certainly had seen better days.
DivvTPRLT073.jpg
"I'm Super Dragon Train, gimme some track!"
DivvTPRLT074.jpg
Cartoonish photo of TPDave quota: FILLED.
DivvTPRLT076.jpg
The whores rode this. I just took a photo of the sign for TPR's park index.
DivvTPRLT082.jpg
The whores were also too lazy to walk up the hill.
DivvTPRLT083.jpg
I'm so excited to see Q-Bots in a Merlin park. Hopefully Alton, Chessington and Thorpe will follow suit soon!
DivvTPRLT088.jpg
"Yes, we're all members of the Hobosexual Alliance."
DivvTPRLT089.jpg
Of course this group is incapable of passing a slide without staging a takeover.
DivvTPRLT091.jpg
Time for the best ride in Legoland!
DivvTPRLT093.jpg
I'm convinced that this was designed specifically with TPR in mind.
DivvTPRLT095.jpg
If you're wondering why Brad looks so buggered watch the video above!
DivvTPRLT096.jpg
Fire Academy is Divv approved! I can't wait for a TPR takeover in Billund!

More Legoland fun to come...

Legoland Part 2...
DivvTPRLT094.jpg
Mike's problem #27 - too many bananas.
DivvTPRLT099.jpg
What better ride to get in the mood for Scandi than Viking's River Splash?!
DivvTPRLT097.jpg
These rapids are very "RCT".
DivvTPRLT103.jpg
These poor wet people have Ben to blame for their plight.
DivvTPRLT104.jpg
Yup, Pirate Falls was next.
DivvTPRLT107.jpg
The only reason Dave wanted to ride was so he could play with the Duplo in the line.
DivvTPRLT108.jpg
We tried squeezing five into this boat. It didn't quite work out.
DivvTPRLT109.jpg
So whilst none of those guys could breath for five minutes Steve took the opportunity to lie back and recover from the previous night!
DivvTPRLT111.jpg
Mike's problem #63 - sitting in the front of the Log Flume.
DivvTPRLT112.jpg
This be a dead skeleton made o' Blocko says I!
DivvTPRLT115.jpg
Yup, the streaker is still there!
DivvTPRLT119.jpg
I think I can see Lego Steve in the bar!
DivvTPRLT123.jpg
If you look real closely at the displays you find loads of cool little easter eggs like this.
DivvTPRLT125.jpg
The group gets super excited about the big shuttle launch!
DivvTPRLT127.jpg
BLAST OFF! Well, not quite.
DivvTPRLT128.jpg
Denmark is the only country in the world where the ducks are bigger than the cows. Who's excited about Scandi now?!
DivvTPRLT139.jpg
If you're in Legoland make sure you do Rocket Racers. Not so much for the ride but really because it has the BEST pre-show video this side of Sea Odyssey at Port Aventura!
DivvTPRLT130.jpg
Is he Dave or is he Laq?
DivvTPRLT131.jpg
Mike's problem #88 - Doesn't have a real grass skirt.
DivvTPRLT132 copy.jpg
It's just like the Lego special olympics.
DivvTPRLT140.jpg
Is it Anth or is it Hitler?
DivvTPRLT050.jpg
Here's our supertastic fun group of Generic Lego Fans. We had a great day!
DivvTPRLT138.jpg
I really think Legoland is one of the best parks to visit as part of a group. I can't wait to get back to the one in Billund for more fun like this in a couple of months!

Thorpe Park will be up at some point this week!

Enclosed cars?
Why?
You may as well just drive down a hill.

Can't wait for more.

Nice update Divv, looks like a good start to the weekend! Wish I could have joined you guys, and yes I'm excited for giant ducks in Denmark!

Looking forward to Thorpe!

Seeing Rocket Racers makes me want to dig out my Lego Racers game.

Great report so far Divv, I'd forgotten how much fun we had on Saturday, the sheer exhaustion of no sleep for two nights erased that day from my memory completely!! Some fantastic pictures.

I miss you guys!
