just as the title says, we did 44 rides in 3 days! That’s a lot of rides, in fact on the second night when I closed my eyes my body felt like it was swaying. We did 12 rides on day 1, 17 on day 2 and 15 on day 3; and we will be telling you how we did all of this below. If you want to watch what we did a short video is here!Continue reading

So it’s felt like forever since being in Alton Towers (November 4th), and we decided we wanted to go to opening day because we miss being in the park. It was a very successful day for us, and as well as telling you what we did we will also be detailing how we got the most out of the day below: Also check out our video of the day here.Continue reading

Better late than never? The end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 have been a little harder than we’d have liked but that shouldn’t stop the blogging! This post is a little insight into what we are going to do and what we would like to do in 2019.
We hope you all have a fantastic year!
“Yes!” is the short answer, but then that wouldn’t be much of a blog post! If you’ve never heard of Icee, then let me explain with this extract from the Icee Wiki page…
“The Icee Company is an American beverage company located in Ontario, California, United States. Its flagship product is the Icee which is a frozen carbonated beverage available in fruit and soda flavors”
Due to living in the North of England, getting to places such as Legoland, Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures isn’t easy to do as a day trip. So just like we did back in October, we decided to go and spend a few days visiting the different parks with our Merlin Annual Passes.
The plan was:
- Warwick Castle on the way down (Saturday),
- Chessington World of Adventures (Sunday),
- Legoland (Monday),
- Thorpe Park and then straight home (Tuesday).
We’ve visited a lot of theme parks recently, so have come up with some top tips that should help you get the most from your day, get the best value for money, and have a great time! Feel free to comment if you have any other tips!
So this is not our first time to Alton Towers (as you can imagine), however it was our first time seeing the all new Wicker Man ride that they had to offer.
It has been a good 2 or 3 years since we last stepped foot into Alton Towers, though not a lot has changed. Alton Towers has a lot to offer, if you don’t like rides but still want to go when all of your friends do then don’t worry. Alton Towers has wonderful gardens that you can go walking through! The gardens are stunning and are located in the middle of the park.
It’s annoying when you have a free weekend and want to go out but you’re not sure where to go. We get this sometimes, where we try our hardest to think of new places to go to, or things to do and we resort to Google. But sometimes even Google doesn’t really help us.
So we’ve created a list of places in the Northwest of England where we enjoy going, or resort to when we have no-where else to go. So if you’re bored or want to go somewhere new, try out these places. We have visited all of the places on this list so if there are any questions feel free to ask us!
Legoland is a favourite of ours, we enjoy the park and it always makes for a great day out. If you want to go with kids it is fantastic! You do not have to stay at Legoland, we stayed in Maidenhead which is only a 10 min drive (and significantly cheaper). This was our last day and we knew that we would be going from Legoland back to Liverpool. Legoland is included on our Merlin Annual passes, and last time we had them we went to Legoland several times that year, though it was a lot easier when I was living down there and we didn’t have to pay for a hotel.
After waking up (and not wanting to get up), having a lovely full cooked breakfast (and maybe some pancakes as well, got to be ready for the day) and checking out of the hotel we left for Legoland. It is only about 10 miles away from the Maidenhead Premier Inn, so we would recommend it if you’re wanting to go to Legoland and it not cost you a fortune!
