Alton Towers

We enjoyed a fab day at Alton Towers a couple of days ago, even though the weather was rubbish and alternated between torrential rain and bright sun! Did we let that put a dampner on our day?! Did we heck as like! We dodged the rain when we could and smiled when we got soaked! Maybe because of the weather, or being a week day, but it was the quietest we have ever seen it! So quiet that the were pretty much no queues for anything and we got to go round twice on a few things! We went into Storybook land and visited the farm animals, went on the tractors, nutty squirrel ride, barnyard boat ride and roundabout. We headed off to the other side and watched a pirate show while we had our picnic. We went in the 4d cinema to see ice age, went on the carousel, visited wobbly world and Charlie and the chocolate factory. Mr W went on Rita twice as there was no queue. Both Megan and Ben had their first ride on the Runaway Mine Train, which I think was a bit too fast for them! Ben and I went on the Flume. We all enjoyed the rapids and went round twice and got soaked! Especially by the people squirting water! We had a go at this too and it was really funny soaking everyone! To finish off we went into the Sealife centre, which we all love. Megan held a shrimp and we spotted sharks, sting rays, starfish to name just a few fish.
Even though the weather wasn't the best, we still had the best day out!
