It's the last day of the May Challenge (Woo hoo!), I made it to the end blogging everyday. After today I am on my own. I am quite glad the challenge is over, I didn't enjoy it as much as A-Z, I think because I didn't have as much freedom as A-Z because I had topics to stick to each day. I think I enjoy a bit of structure but need freedom too, if that makes any sense.
Some of the topics were really tough, including todays....a vivid memory. I have always considered myself to have a good memory but I was really stuck so I did a bit of brainstorming (creatively of course) and have come up with the following:
The memory I'm going to tell you about involves the 'Alice in Wonderland' ride at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. We used to go to Blackpool quite a bit, ride on the donkeys, walk the golden mile, play bingo, see a show and go to the Pleasure Beach of course.
One year, I must have been about 6 years old, we were at the Pleasure Beach and me, my sister and mum went on the 'Alice in Wonderland' ride. It's a children's ride, not meant to be scary or anything however we'd just started off on the ride and gone through the first tunnel when the ride broke down, we were stuck in the dark in the tunnel not moving. I screamed so loudly my dad ran up onto the tracks and grabbed me. My hero!
I'm a little traumatised by that ride. I've been back to the Pleasure Beach since and the ride is still there. I would never go on it again though. I'll go on the big, fast, scary roller coasters but not on that ride . I'll never forget that!
Here is an old picture of that ride (it gives me the creeps just seeing it again):
Have you ever had a scary experience at a theme park?
