Have fun looking around 🙂

Universal Islands of Adventure in Florida

I think I’ve pretty thoroughly covered Harry Potter World, so here’s the rest of the park…

We left Harry Potter about 3:30pm and stayed till 7.

My eldest daughter and I did the Jurassic Park ride – you have to do that one. It starts off as if you are a visitor in Jurassic Park, and then, as so often happens on these rides, everything goes wrong and we’re taken the wrong way. Highly recommended ride – the slope at the end is not that bad and you only get splashed a bit. The middle seats are the driest. Younger kids may find the giant tyrannosaurus rex quite scary – I did and I was expecting it! (It was exactly the same as the ride in California).

We did pop-eye barges – one of those rides where you sit in a massive rubber ring and are taken down rapids and through waterfalls (There is a handy cover in the middle to keep possessions dry – but don’t rely on it – use at least 2 carrier bags as well) As expected, we got absolutely drenched and as usual, I got the worst hit. Chris was not that bad, but still not impressed with me for insisting we all did it! It was also too late in the day to dry off.

Next was the spiderman ride and we made the seats rather wet. Sorry to whoever had them after us. This was a good fun family ride and you wore 3D glasses so it seemed like Spiderman actually jumped onto your car. It was very effective, gentle and I’d recommend it.

We went home after that, and came back again about a week later, but unfortunately got the closing time wrong. So we missed the stunt show and Poisdon Adventure, which is a shame. Depending how long you want to spend at Harry Potter World, you could easily do this park in one day.

Overseas,

Looking for a car rental company in central Somerset? Review of KNW Self Drive in Wells
May 11, 2018
I’ll be honest, I really wasn’t sure whether to write this blog post. Being negative about local companies is not really the direction I want to take this blog. However, due to its recent anniversary, I looked back at my first posts, and they were mainly reviews designed to be useful to the general public. I like the idea of being useful. If no-one writes mundane reviews of things like car hire companies because they want their blog to look pretty and be a fun positive place (which is really what I want mine to be), then no-one is going to know that it might be worth looking at other places instead of KNW Self Drive to hire a car for the weekend….
Is Premium economy on flights worth it?
Is it worth upgrading to Premium Economy? – Comparing Norwegian Airways, Hi-Fly and Virgin Atlantic
August 16, 2019
This is the question I’ve often pondered, but until you fork out the money to upgrade, you’re not going to know are you? Last year I flew three times to America accompanying Chris on work trips and the company has kindly paid for our return journeys to be Premium Economy. It was so exciting that first time! We all have wildly varying opinions as to what we spend our money on and what we save it on, but if you’re not sure if it’s worth paying extra to fly premium economy, then hopefully this will help….

Summer Solstice at Stonehenge + 7 things you need to know for next time
July 4, 2018
Summer Solstice at Stonehenge is something I’ve been wanting to do for years and years. There’s one fundamental problem though: Glastonbury Festival comes right afterwards! And you’re tired enough at Glastonbury without the added exhaustion of being awake through the night before. I’ve never been one of those people (no matter what age) who could just stay up all night and not feel it for the following week! However, this was a fallow year for Glastonbury Festival so we decided to finally do it!…..
