    Personally I think the money spent on Mission 2 should of gone into improving the track, and other ride effects.

    It was a small rucksack but I had expensive stuff like my DVD Video camera in it so I didn't want to risk taking it on the more intense attractions. Personally there are some attractions you just don't want to take your rucksack on!

    Great trip report - a regular cliffhanging serial!

    Funny, before we had kids, my wife convinced me to ride 10 times in a row without getting off. Personally, I would rather ride IASW than the lame Indy.

    Thats good to know I actually wonder if the efects were not working due to how bad the weather was that day. Could you if you have time check on this on your next trip.

    (NDJnr loved the Scream machines and kept returning to them to empty his lungs as loudly as possible!)
    True despite how annoying I find them I wouldn't want to see them removed. As the kids all seem to be having a blast and thats what its all about.

    Also, I was happy to see that I (all 6'4 of me!) could easily fit into Crush's Coaster.

    I liked Buzz, but as with most comuter games, I got quickly bored of it. To be honest I didn't take much notice of my score either.

    That may be so, but while roller coasters give a rush, i dont think there is a ride that I enjoy more than Buzz. As a computer game player is really appeals to me because you just SO want to beat your highest score and make that next level. While I don't see how it is possible to break the 999,999 barrier without a break down in a serioulsy good place, the want to achieve it will get me back on that ride time after time.

    NDJnr did exactly the same in the Pinocchio ride - Buzz has a lot to answer for!

    And made quite funny when its a spellbound toddler with a Buzz Lightyear gun going through the attraction shooting the AAs. I'm sure he thought the broken AAs were through his marksmanship abilities.

    "Quick Gage, there's China, get them!!!" and so on.

    LOL! I should probably add, it wasn't completely by choice. Unfortunately my son still isn't a huge fan of the dark rides with the exception of Buzz and although tall enough Thunder Mountain didn't get 2 thumbs up either, but we thought we would take him on Small World this trip (we ushered him away from it on 2 previous trips) and he loved it and constantly asked to go back on it.

    In a way we were lucky to only have to go on it 5 times, imagine he loved it as much as Buzz, we could have been in double Small World digits.

    I did notice the flooring in the outside pools, some of it is mould, some of it coins; i have to say that it doesn't grate on me the way it does others, i saw worse water damage from the Dumbo queue and the rock pool to the right hand side of Discoveryland entrance is plain green. I didn't notice the need for either dusting or repainting, what actually stood out more to me was the way the warehouse style ceiling has never been hidden.

    I'm kind of happy you missed most of the neglect I saw StrongStyle as it would of taken away from your vacation.
