    I consider myself reasonable well traveled now, certainly not a basic bitch, but I'm basic when it comes to Asia etc. I have some of the best creds in Europe and the US to my name which could grace most enthusiasts top 10, but nothing for the east of the world. We are lucky to have a few...

    The curious tale of Kraken and its VR exploits I'm not a huge fan of Kraken, but knowing the earbashing you can get from some multiloopers, this is going to hurt. There's also many many stupid comments such as... "I'm...

    Your most expensive cred

    With the news of Ferrari Land's pricing being announced, I started thinking about what my most expensive cred has been so far. I think it would be Boulderdash, I paid $25 and only Boulderdash was running, but that did include access to the haunted graveyard, which was fab <3 What's yours? A...

I approached this park with a totally different mindset to normal and focused on it as a family park and based...

    After a nice relaxing week at Center Parcs, I decided that Pleasurewood Hills needed to be visited, as it's only 90 mins from Thetford.
