Adventure Island. The weather was good, had been good, it was a weekend and schools were on holiday, so it was busy.
They have BBC Essex piped in, doing promotions and such like, so had to try and not include too much of that. You hear the Go Karts, end of one session, I think the two-seaters had come in and the single seaters were next out. Then, in the distance, you can hear screaming, this is the Fireball ride which is for smaller children, and then the last ride, Dragon. You might hear the operator, who’s only a teenager (most of the staff are), shouting out, getting the riders involved before the start.
The start is quiet but when it gets going there’s a lot of screaming as the Dragon goes through its paces. It’s quite an old ride but seems to do the trick. The noise at the end is the riders clattering off the ride before rushing off somewhere else that will make their head hurt.
