I took over 1800 photos of the entire trip, over 100 photos a day. I've selected the best for either quality or random story to share. I figure others will cover similar stuff.
Before the trip officially started, a few of us headed up to Skegness. I'll leave those photos for someone else to post, as the weather wasn't really photogenic. The following day, was the Legoland pre-trip add-on. It was my first Legoland, and was really worth the amount of time we spent there. It could have just been a credit run, but there is so much theming in the park that I didn't even notice some things until I went back and looked at my pictures.
Here we are at Legoland, the most popular thing in Windsor (at least to coaster enthusiasts)
Lots of cool theming, like these Easter Island dudes
This be taller than Disneyland's fer sure
I'm not sure if Will is trying to film the coaster or if he's making a documentary on Robb
I'm a dragon, gimme some peasants!
I had to pee after looking at this lego statue
Dragon's Apprentice was a pretty cool little kiddie coaster
Jungle Coaster had little theming, but what it did have was pretty entertaining. The beer gods were pleased
Dan was not too pleased though when he agreed to ride the Aquazone ride
Cameron didn't mind though
Lego theming is everywhere, even in the fish tanks
I grabbed a Magnum Double Caramel, as they were really hard to find this time around
IS THAT EVER HAIR???? It looks like a dead bush or something! Nice pictures Derek, Lego land looks like a pretty cool place, you have to give props to the guys that had to put those statues and buildings together though, I would have gotten frustrated and kicked them all over if I had to do that!
The first official day of the trip was to Chessington World of Adventures. I'd been here before, back in 2002, but new to me was Dragon's Fury, as well as taking in a lot more of the park. Last time we were here was during a really crowded school day. Fortunately, this time it was a bit less crowded.
At the hotel we saw Tommy and James. Of course James was eating breakfast!
The coaches were all made up with a strategic assigned seating that would last for 1 day.
Dragon's Fury was one of the best coasters of the trip
This horseshoe curve was off the hinges
We kept yelling "90 degrees!"
Vampire was also ours during ERT. Hooray for not having to wait over an hour this time to ride
Rattlesnake was still nicely themed, though seemed a bit more braked this time
Later on we'd catch up with Tommy and James again. and again, James was eating
Someone told Dave Barry would be his roommate, so Dave tried to kill himself by eating the Cadbury Castle
Malaria Lake 2: Stagnant Pond
Dave was beyond excited to be in a soap themed darkride. See his excitement levels, they're off the charts!
Mare is a bit concerned about what lies in the Creepy Caves
Turns out nothing in there was creepy. Here's some turtles doing their best Robb and James impressions
And the baby Sea Lion was pretending he was Thunder Dolphin, but good
Best darkride ever? Maybe to some, but to us its just House Bastard
I never learned this in Pharmacy School
Yo, we're penguins. Don't try to take us home
Just monkeying around in the zoo
This way to House Bastard
Finally we found the monorail, after walking around the park twice and walking up and down like 9 flights of stairs
Dragon's Fury even had an animatronic entrance dude who told you either ride the coaster or be fed to some hungry marsupials
Our surprise from Robb and Elissa was a stop at Coney Beach on the way to our hotel in Wales. Even I didn't know we'd be going here, so it was a nice little bonus 2 credits and memories to last a lifetime.
Coney Beach, home to some of the vilest scum in Wales...
like Mega Blitz, a not too painful Pinfari...until the final brakes
And Nessi, another cha-ching!
At least they had a cool little trailer type funhouse
Melanie enjoyed the powered coaster
But the others just seemed to go nowhere
Probably the best ride at Coney
With boobage to boot!
If only the clientelle actually looked like this!
You know the place is bad when Dan doesn't even feel obligated to go into private to shoot up
Dan was hoping this would send him into an Insulin coma and he'd wake up when we got to a good park.
