Pleasureland Hands On 5
7th April 2001
Despite the lovely weather(!) another great ECC trip. The ERS on TraumaTizer was wet and wild, the Fun House was fun! Unfortunately, the Cyclone was out of action for most of the day. Big thanks to Jake and crew who got it up & running at 16:00.
No track walk due to the weather (that’s two track walks I’ve missed out on!). Any chance of trading the above for a walk up the lift hill on the Pepsi Max Big One on the Blackpool trip?
Great time out at Southport even if it did pour down. I really enjoyed my first trip, especially the ERS on TraumaTizer and the Cyclone. I also really enjoyed the mad half hour in the Fun House. I shall most definitely be there at the next trip. I just hope we see some sunshine.
Many thanks to everyone involved for another excellent trip. Let’s hope that the weather is better next time. Still, it didn’t stop everyone having a laugh!
The Pleasureland trip has been an annual event since the Club was formed – this is mainly due to the great staff there who always go out of their way to help us. Allowing members to do the track walk is also a fantastic part of this trip, although is has rained on more than one occasion, causing its cancellation.
We are set to have our eighth trip to the park in 2004 – here’s hoping the rain stays away.
This event had a different start to it; we had intended not to visit this year, due primarily to a busy trip schedule for the year. However, I received a phone call from the park to ask when are you coming this year, just before our first AGM at Chessington World of Adventures. So after a quick chat we decided to go for it and arrange a trip there.
As I have said before, Pleasureland trips are always popular, and will be continuing every year for the foreseeable future. Exclusive sessions were had in the new revamped Fun House, Cyclone, TraumaTizer as well as meals and refreshments in the Casablanca restaurant.
Unfortunately, like the previous year, the track walk was cancelled again due to the weather, so we hope that we will be lucky with the weather for this on next year’s trip.
