Hey everyone.

I had to come to the UK this week for work, so we decided to make a little "mini-trip" out of it.

Our flight was fine (Virgin Atlantic) and it was nice being able to choose from 50 different movies. I finally watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (liked it better than the original) and 40 Year Old Virgin (unedited!!!).

Anyway, we've just checked into our room at the Big Blue Hotel, Blackpool....Here are some pics....

EDIT! Robb posted as SHARKTUMS!!! BOOO!!!!
From the plane we can see the north of England has gotten a bit of snow!
Can you spot some popular landmarks here?
Who needs Google Earth when you have "TPR Earth" =)
Here I am, driving on the "other" side of the road and the "other" side of the car!
Elissa's got the coca-cola, now all she needs is a McDonald's!
Uh, oh....looks like we're heading into that snow covered "north" of England! =)
"Hey Southport! Nice sign you got there! We'll see you in a couple of months, but for now we'll visit your sister park...."
Ahh! Now that is where we're heading!
Next stop! Big Blue Hotel at Blackpool Pleasure Beach!
"I've never been so happy to see an Arrow coaster!"
"Which bed is mine? Hell! I'll take both!!!"
Non-German Tom gets the bunk beds!!!
...And here is our view from the hotel room! Pretty cool, huh? =)

I'm the gyro!

Wow, that looks like an amazing hotel. Glad someone managed to get that hotel for us for 3 nights on the UK trip. I never thought I'd want the last thing I see before I go to sleep and the first thing when I wake up to be an Arrow coaster, but those pictures changed my mind! Hope you guys have fun.

Is there snow at Blackpool? and whats the temp there?

Stupid US parks! :devil:
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

I am still not sure I would enjoy going 40, 50, 60+ mph outdoors in the winter time, but I sure would like the chance to try.

Also seems to but those "steel coasters can't run unless it's ___ degrees out, theory to the test as well, am I right???
