We went to Alton Towers!!!!

This is one of the trips that I most looked forward to, cause I loveee roller coasters!

We went on almost all the big rides except the “The Smiler” as it was closed :(

Nemesis was awesome but not scary.

I think the scariest ride for me was Thir3teen which had quite an ordinary track and cars but when when I thought it had stopped, suddenly the track fell 5 metres down and went backwards in pitch darkness. Walao I really screamed….thought I was going to die.

# – The Oblivion just before plunging into the black hole.

Oblivion was pretty good too despite being a pretty old coaster. It was the first in the world to plunge down vertically. My heart did skip a beat on the way down.

We were on Air as well, it felt like we were flying, pretty cool.

Alton Towers is massive! It isn’t just a theme park, it has a beautiful garden too.

We were there until closing time then we left Alton Towers and headed to Stafford for indian food at a place called Panache.

# – Half eaten before I remembered to take a photo. Delicious!

Then we drove home and stopped by Tesco 24 hours on the way to grab some snacks.

Used a self-service cashier for the first time. Pretty nifty.

# – Look ma no people!

Got home and knocked out straightaway.
