We went to watch the parrot show, and my baby niece Hazel found it hilarious. Every time one of the birds squares, this four month old baby was just giggling hysterically!
When we were kids, long before Pleasure Island was build, we used to go to Cleethorpes to visit my Nana Jenny, my mum's mum, who lived in a caravan there for half the year. Near to the site where the theme park is now there used to be a little park with rides you had to pay for individually. Little things like trampolines and swing boats, but my favorite was this massive bumpy slide. You sat in sacks to go down it, and it was probably as tall as two houses. It disappeared, with the rest of the park around the time the theme park opened. Well, now it's inside the park! Or if it's not that one, it;s exactly the same. So exciting. And exactly how I remember it. Poppy loved it, and she dragged me (ha! there was no dragging involved!) on if four times to race down it. A bit of a blast from the past. Basically, I spent most of the day being a kid!
I'm really glad I went. I wrote a 5* Trip Adviser review to try to counteract some of the negativity on there.
