fairground pt.6


This is the Challenger. It's the first ride that greets you when you enter the fairground. It swings like a pendulum and all you can hear are the screams of the passengers. Up and down and it twists as well. It goes so fast, you don't know what hit you. I can tell you I exhausted my quota of 'Oh God' and ended up with 'NOOOOOOOOOOO!' It took Candice and me about 10 minutes to decide whether to get on or not. No regrets.








I stood under it after we were done and snapped this. If only I had an audio track to accompany it. Just wild! I don't think I'd go on it again though. What we had for dinner got really uncomfortable. :)

Well folks, this is the last of the fairground attraction. I've had fun and I'm sure you have too. I'll post the rest of the shots on Flickr later today. Candice and me thank you for enjoying the ride.

ps. pop over to Candice's to read what she has to say about Ageing Junkies.
