    Tis moved, Muppet.

    I love this. Just the sort of thing I loved as a kid. Forget the stomach-churning rides! The adventure trail entrance and exploring to see what's around the next corner has always been my thing.
    Nice one, M.

    Thumbs up fanatasy land


    Well cool! Wouldn't wanna wander round after too much beer or something.....it reminds me of the MGM Studios in Hertfordshire before it all got knocked down. There used to be cowboy towns and Japanese towns, canals, galleons and all sorts there. My favourite was a large shed with medieval armour made of aluminium stored in it!
    Nice one mate.

    I remember family holidays to cornwall in the late eighties and we visited this place a few times.
    It doesnt seem to have changed much.
    Thanks for sharing.
