Alton Towers 2009
Never having been to Alton Towers I was not quite sure what to expect. Once through the entrance and had passed a few shops this was my first view across the lake.
We walked past a pirate ship and saw a deadly shark swimming round and round maybe hoping for a casualty! The ducks weren't bothered they just went on feeding -bottoms up! There definitely more to Alton Towers than the rides, but I guess not too many people stop to appreciate the beauty.
If you need a rest the shade of a tree is just perfect We started off with a couple of gentle rides, the first a roller coaster followed by the river Rapids below..........and then the FlumeI did not drop into 'Oblivion' but Sam, Mollie and Beccy did as you can see from the official photo below.
....it is quite a drop into a black hole, Ben and I were quite happy sitting in the sun watching everyone drop by I coped much better in 'The Haunted House' Ben scored the most points, shooting the ghosts and ghouls with his laser gun. Guess who scored the least!Several of the rides broke down after we had been queuing for about 45 minutes which was disappointing and the Skyride Stations was closed due to a fire.
I do have a few more photos to show you but I'll leave those for another day.
