Amusement parks

If you know me at all, you probably know that we live 10 minutes from Disneyland, and that we go there a lot. We spend a lot of money every year so we can go whenever we want, and if we stay for 15 minutes, that's okay, we can go back next week.

I just heard about another amusement park that sounds pretty cool. It's across the pond, so my chances of going there anytime soon are slim, but it still seems cool!

The park is called Pleasure Beach Blackpool and is modeled after American style amusement parks. It was started in 1896 and has in the same location since. It features Europe's tallest fastest rollercoaster, The Pepsi Max Big One. It also has Valhalla, the world's biggest dark ride which opened 2000.

Another thing that looks great is the Blackpool Restaurant called White Tower.
