    Oakwood Theme Park

    Me, The missus and the kids went to oakwood theme park yesterday on our way home from west wales on our hols, anyhow we had a rip roaring time and went on all the best rides without queing (it was a bit quiet) and saved the wettest ride for last being Hydro. Below is a video of me on it, you can't see me and the kids (we were on the front row) but you can see an indication of how feckin wet we got (wasn't expecting that). What are your favourite rides and/or theme parks in Britain?

    No it was Hydro the girl died on about 2 or 3 years ago I think, but since then they fitted over the shoulder harnesses to make it safer, no chance of falling out but feck me you get soaked to the skin.

    you might be thinking about the little boy that died about ten or so years ago on the water chute ride they had. part of the lighting gantry fell down on him.

    The big one in the Pleasure Beach is ok, went there recently out of season and went on the ride 5 times without queuing once
    Always try to go out of season as CBA with going to theme parks and spending 40-60mins queuing for a 2min ride.
