I love Summer. I love everything single thing about it. I love how ice-cream melts too fast and you have to catch it as fast as possible. I love the endless blue skies filled with so much hope and crazy ideas. I love spending time with the people who mean the most to me and making the most out of every minute.
With that my family and I went to Pleasurewood Hills in Suffolk. It’s our most local theme park that I would visit when I was a child. Pleasurewood Hills may not be the greatest amusement park in the country but I had a pretty damn good day.
So, I went to Pleasurewood Hills with my two brothers, Dad, Aunt, Uncle, my two cousins, their husbands and children. It’s not often that I get to spend quality time with the whole of my Dad’s side of the family so this day felt very special.
To make the day that little bit better was the weather, the sun was beating down on my neck there was minimal wind, it was my favourite kind of weather. I was wearing my newest dress from Hollister (I know, Hollister right?! It was so damn cute I had to have it!!) The back of the dress is just stunning, there is a cross up back that enables me to tighten the dress whenever necessary. I just love it!
At the theme park we watched a sea-lion and diving show. I went to the sea-lion show with my 7-year-old cousin and it was very adorable. The sea lions climbed up steps and slid down slides, jumped from top of pedestals into the water. They were so amazingly trained and I loved every minute of it.
We had a lovely time and I loved seeing the animals. We then watched a diving show where actors and talented divers jumped from over 25 meters. It was very high, much higher than I could ever jump from and one guy jumped while being set on fire, it was truly amazing! Definitely one to watch if you’re a thrill seeker!
Obviously it’s a theme park so we went on some rides too which I both loved and hated for a variety of reasons. I’m not a fan of water rides as I hate feeling of being cold or the shock on my body, but I did go on with my brother (picture below (ignore the eyebrow, the shadows don’t do it any favours!!)) and smiled through the pain!
I went on the largest ride in our county (which in comparison to the top theme parks like Thorpe Park, Alton Towers and Chessington was a little baby!) The ride itself known as Wipeout has always scared me. Pleasurewood Hills is such a small theme park I never really feel safe on it, but that’s part of the thrill of a rollercoaster ride!
My favourite ride is Enigma a ‘runaway train’ (picture 5) that storms across in random circles. It’s been there for years and although there is no loopdeloops I love the speed and adrenalin! I do love rides, but the larger ones in the country do tend to make me more excited!
Something I loved most about the day was how nostalgic it was. As a child we would come here to visit. I remember as a very small child maybe 4 or 5 or even six (I don’t know how far back my brain can take me) we would religiously watch the Parrot show. To this day I love it!
I hope there is no cruelty, that the animals get the correct feed at the right times and nothing horrible happens to them. It seems so tough to train a Parrot when they are wild animals at heart. They look happy enough to me and I like to think I can notice the little things!
I’m not usually one to post images of my face or even family members so I’m so glad I got to share this moment with you all! This final picture is of my Dad’s side of the family, although we don’t get to see them often the moments we share when we are together are truly unforgettable.
I’m so grateful for my family and the amount of love and support they have for me! Big shout out to my little brothers Callum and Dylan who are somewhat taller than me, you guys are my world! Thanks for reading as always my moonshines, if you want to visit our little baby theme park check it out here!
