We went to Wet 'n' Wild on the Gold Coast today. A really big water park. It was full of blummin' schoolkids though. Lorna wouldn't let me drown any to make the queues shorter, which was a shame.
We still had a great day though and managed to get on all the rides we wanted, some quite a few times. We had 4 races on the Aqua Race Slide, and the final result was Simon 4 Lorna 0!! She was frashed!!
There were loads of slides to go on so it was an entertaining, and exhausting, day! By the end Lorna wanted escalators to take her to the top of the slides so she didn't have to walk.
On one of the rides, I actually lost Lorna. We were on the Terror Canyon for which you both go down on a double seated tube. At the end of the slide you shoot out onto a steep drop, and as we hit the bottom with a thud were blasted with water. As the tube came to a stop, Lorna was missing from the front! She had been flung forwards about another 10 yards and landed flat in the water on her backside. It was hilarious to see - although I'm not sure Lorna agreed with that!
We left the park about 4ish as we had to get back to the other side of Brisbane before 6pm to get in our van park.
We are stopping at Newmarket Gardens Caravan Park. It's only 4km from the city centre which is ideal.
We think we are stopping here about three nights as Lorna has arranged to meet Desley to go Christmas shopping tomorrow. This gives me a full day on my own!! Oh bliss - this must be my early Christmas present.
We will see......
