Typhoon Lagoon

typhoon lagoon guide

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,

3 days in new york – Day 1. The story of the photographs
February 10, 2017
Oh dear, I had trouble narrowing down the number of photos of New York to include to make it a reasonable length blog post! We did a hell of a lot each day, so I had to include enough to illustrate that, and I managed to get it down to fifteen photos, which I thoroughly enjoyed preparing. By the way, I should explain that this is the first post about the epic holiday our family went on last July. (I’ve had so many blog post ideas that it’s taken me this long to get to it!) I’ve decided that pictures speak a thousand words, so these are mainly going to be photography based travel blog posts, rather than tonnes of information provided. However, if you’d like more information about anything I mention, please just ask in the comments – I’ve got a box full of leaflets and tickets and a detailed diary to refer to.
Beach holiday in Lanzarote
A week in Lanzarote for a Canary Islands winter sun holiday
December 7, 2018
The all-round plan for this holiday was to do as little as possible. Everyone in the family agreed, but admittedly, all had slightly different versions in our minds of what ‘doing nothing’ actually meant! We have never had a holiday like this. In the past it’s all been road trips and busy sight-seeing adventures and after an exhausting week exploring Rome and Venice earlier in the year, we thought we were due a relaxing time away for a change….
Walking round Glastonbury Festival site
A walk around the Glastonbury Festival site – the story of the photographs
April 12, 2017
Considering Glastonbury Festival is a hop skip and a jump away from us in Pilton, I’m surprised we don’t go for a wander around the site more often. I’m guessing it’s the long uphill walk back to the villagers’ gate that puts us off! Anyway, on Mothering Sunday the rest of the family didn’t really have a choice in the matter, and as it was a bright sunshiny day, I thought I’d drag them off on a walk….
