    Red face American Adventure - Night explore


    Went on a night explore last night at the American Adventure theme park. I was pretty freaked out the entire of the way round, trying to stick to shadows. Trying to make our way over to some area that had enough moonlight to take some long exposures of the building and the fantastic sky that we had. Then came the problem; me and MikeyMike were going round the corner of a building to be when headlights came round the corner. We ran off down the track as the vehicle followed and quickly dove into the nearest covering we could find and waited for a good while. They came back and aimed the headlights right at us and we thought we had been spotted but all had turned out well. After that we went as quickly as we could back to the entry point and got out of there. Too close for my liking and I also have a high allergy to the plants we dove into so I was itching quite a lot. It was fun, but I'm not sure I would advise it for the weak of heart, I was nackard!

    I got a couple of photos of the Loo's and the entrance that I will upload in a little while, nothing good, Just for keep sake. But MikeyMike has some decent ones I do believe.

    Here be the super crappy photos!

    Watching my back too much for security, didn't really manage anything. Too much adrenalin from the run away from the Jeep and the headlights chasing us.

    one of the bathrooms. Taking photos lit the place's up like it were a rave.


    From the comfort of my new car!


    Not my usual standard... I was super tired! or in other words "One could not be arsed!"

    Shame it didn't turn out how you wanted it, but gotta admire your dedication - the only reason i'd go exploring at 3AM is if I had 'explored' a case of lager before hand.

    Nothing like the ol' Dutch courage! I've been at 3am once or twice before, mostly when it's in a busy area that needs the cover of darkness. Saying that, that didn't stop me doing Southampton Ambulance Station in broad daylight on a Monday morning in a busy city centre! Stealth is where it's at.

    Shame about the security NobodyGirl, hopefully you've picked up some good info for future visits though!
