Pleasure Beach report 13/02/11
« on: February 13, 2011, 09:50:23 PM »
This is the first of many Pleasure Beach reports from 2011.. :thumbup1:
I start this report by saying thank you to everybody that came today, and to the staff all bar one jobsworth that contributed to an amazing day.. :thumbup1:
The jobsworth was a guy called Steve, he works on the security entrance to the park.He felt that my Sons drink formed part of a picnic and food is not allowed onto the park, I thought that he was joking and asked him to repeat what he had just said.
He flashed an A4 card infront of my face in a rude manner, on it had items that are prohibited from the park.He then  told me that he was using his discretion on this occasion.. :sneaky2:
I thought why the big scene..!

Anyway the parks management did not agree with what had occurred.. :thumbup1:

I hate writing negative stuff and I have to say that everybody else that I had met at the Pleasure Beach were amazing, helpful and kind.. :thumbup:

So who went...

1) Me
2)Louise
3)Adz
4)Kryn
5)Chris
6)Ash
7)Becca
8)Charlotte
9)Brad
10)Jenny
11)Tarran
12)Olliver
13)James
14)Heather
15)John


And we said hello to Mark and his Wife.. :thumbup1:

The park has had a huge make over, its very clean and fresh, its very very difficult to find fault with anything.
We had a really good day today, the rides felt like new and you could feel especially on The Big One and Infusion that a lot of work has been carried out on them during the Winter months.. :thumbup1:

We arrived at just before 10am, the park was still quiet as it was early..











We spotted our friend Thomas ensuring everything was clean & tidy for opening.. :thumbup1:















To the Big One... :tongue_smilie:



Wow.. :thumbup1:
It looked superb..





Mark & his Wife.. :thumbup1:



Looks great..





















Jenny & Charlotte on the Wild Mouse..



Chris & James..



Mark,Adz,Ash & Becca..







Bradley.. :scared:







The Nash..

































Kryn was spooked by the random guy.. :w00t:











The Ghost Train had quite few amazing changes.. :thumbup1:









River caves...





Always on their phones.. :love:











Revolution..





















A bit too big for the Stobart Truck Ride.. :tongue_smilie:







Monorail..









Park views from the Monorail..







Cracking staff.. :thumbup:









Thank you for reading.. :thumbup:

It wasn't very busy on the Sunday, but the weather was very dull and off putting!

Changes are general tidying up, the new big one queue line and sign, steeplechase horses repaint, ghost train scenes changed, totem pole from beaver creek is now next to the big dipper, infusion lake and fountains back...
