Alton Revisited

It was great to be back!
The last time we were here was back in April 1994. Boy, how the time flies!
MrD and I were so looking forward to show Elsa around the park,
just so she knows we were young once...
'tho we like to think we're still young, our creaking joints tell us otherwise










The haunted house had a bit of makeover...





Thank goodness MrD finally came to his senses and got rid of his 80's tache.









Oh, yes the Nemesis
It was the most talked about white-knuckled ride when it was opened to the public in March 1994.
Eighteen years after its opening, Nemesis is still one of the most popular rides in the park.
Eighteen years ago, I did not ride it, and I am not about to change my mind... ever!


















Notice the gorgeous house on the hill...
not a lot has change.
The garden is still as beautiful as I remembered it to be.










































The yew arches still remain the same
















Back then, the castle was just an empty shell of a ruin and was in a state of disrepair.
It has now been restored with the addition of a ride based on the true legend of the towers.
















The big trees still remain the same after eighteen years

    1. oh, yes, Elle
      It took me a good 20 years to convince him that the misai is not doing him any favour.
      It must have been a sad day for him when he finally shave it off
