All I can say is WOW, how cool was that?!

We went on almost everything, it was really sunny but quite quiet as the kids are all still at school. I've never experienced anything quite like Nemesis or Oblivion, and Rita: Queen of Speed was just mental! 0 - 100Kmph in 2.5 seconds.

Anyone else been there recently? Wow. I'd love to hear what anyone else has to say about such an awesome place. :)

Been on the first two rides, bought the zippo from the second as I was so impressed with myself (was a good idea at the time)

Never been. Never been to your parts either.

Anyone read about a worker being struck and killed by a roller coaster at Lego Land in Denmark?

Not been to Alton Towers, I always tended to go to Draton Manor instead.

Sounds like an amusement/theme park?

I stay away from those rides :p

Yeah I used to go to Drayton Manor when I was younger, I loved that place. Alton Towers knocked it for six really though, especially with these new rollerocoaster.

I still can't get over Rita: Queen of Speed - I just wasn't expecting anything so fast!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
