Well, despite being a bit outside my comfort zone, today went really well!
Got up early, got washed and dressed and walked up to the meeting spot in the cool morning air. Had a peaceful car ride in my friend’s father’s car all the way to Thorpe Park, at which point the ball was rolling.
We got there for opening time, which meant some excellent queue times for the first hour or so. We got some of the classics done in that time and throughout the day we rode two of the big coasters three times each, as well as riding each of the other coasters at least once.
It was raining for most of the afternoon, which helped with queue times. A little bit of rain doesn’t bother me too much, so that was fine. Tried the new ride, which turned out to be really quite entertaining. Eventually it was time to come home and I treated myself to a nice bath to recover a bit from my aching limbs.
