Nice Weather for Ducks indeed, it was a tad wet at Alton towers on Monday, here are the other visitors we met at the Theme Park...

Very wet was an under statement but at least it kept the crowds down so we go to go on all the rides we wanted too.

This is Oblivion, a very fun ride with a very sheer drop into a dark pit...

We had a great day out both despite of and partly because of the weather. Nemesis was our favourite ride I think for both of us.

The rides seem so out of place with the scenery! That one shot (picture #4) is just gorgeous! I love the hint of buildings and trees in the distance through the fog. So how do I find this park when I make it to England? :-)

I love Alton Towers. Oblivion has to be one of my favourites. Gosh the last time I went to Alton Towers was about 10 years ago lol

What a shame about the rainy day :(
