Typhoon Lagoon

Another of Disney’s water parks…

The main attraction of this park is the wave pool. You may be thinking of the odd swimming pool in this country with a wave machine. Oh no, oh no! This wave machine makes waves that are HUGE! The family and I positioned ourselves in a depth of just above waist height thinking we’d be fine. Again, Oh no! My bikini bottoms went up my bum (they are shorts style – nothing skimpy), Jude’s vest top came down; you are literally thrown and pummelled around an I ended up underwater practically sitting on top of some random man. Unfortunately on the second wave I was thrown onto the bottom of the pool where my knee scraped on the rough concrete surface and walked out of the pool with blood dripping down my leg. I still have a pink patch on my knee. So this is a warning – be very careful and only allow strong swimmers in, and bare in mind, that even in the large bit that is normally ankle deep; when a wave comes along, it becomes thigh high. Don’t think of wearing any jewellery or glasses that might come off (no glasses strap is strong enough – I wore prescription goggles).

The lazy river is just as lovely as Blizzard beach, but there isn’t a family raft ride that’s anywhere near as good. It’s just a big slide in a big rubber ring. Good fun though. My favourite slides were the crush ‘n’ gusher “water coaster” as it’s a longer slide and takes you up and down a few times. You can ride it in 2s or 3s, and I’d do the double ring, because for some reason, the triple inflatable has holes in the bottom and it was fairly painful on the bum!

Sorry – I haven’t got any photos of Typhoon Lagoon. I’ll try and do a video clip of the big waves though soon.

Overseas,

Visiting the Jack o’lantern Blaze & wearing my new purple coat
October 30, 2018
We couldn’t be in America without visiting a Halloween event, could we? Friends recommended the Jack o’lantern Blaze at Croton-on-Hudson in New York, and we were lucky enough to get tickets. This event sells out weeks beforehand, but I think I happened to be online when a new batch was released for an 8:30pm time slot on Tuesday. So I bought the tickets in a bit of a panic, but didn’t really know what it was I was buying them for!…
A guide for how to survive Orlando theme parks – Disney World & Universal Studios
August 6, 2016
I’ll be honest, six years ago I’d never even contemplated an Orlando holiday – it just wasn’t something that interested me. We’d done a couple of trips to Disney Land and Universal Studios in California, and that was enough for me. But then they went and built Harry Potter World! That pretty much changed everything, and suddenly we were booking ourselves two weeks in Florida. Four years later we went again with Chris’s family; and last week we ended up there again for the last four days of our road-trip holiday. There’s something so magical and wonderful about those theme parks that is difficult to describe to someone who’s never been. I don’t know what preconceptions I’d had before; whether I was being a bit snobby about it; but I had not expected it to love it there as much as I do! If you’ve never been before and are going this summer, or planning next year’s holiday, then I hope you’ll find this little guide to Orlando useful. Even if you’re not, I hope you find it interesting! ….
