    Bug Video???

    Are you talking about the J logo on the top left hand corner which is to do with you tube and is out of our hands or are you talking about the other videos on Jess' youtube regarding the stick insets?

    This is my wife youtube, the models were posted on there before I got my own youtube account.

    You wouldn't think that when I first went out with Jess, that she didn't like birds or anything that flies, nor would she handle a stick inset. Now she has parrots and stick insets and is more than happy to cuddle them all

    Ah yes, stick insects. That well known cuddly critter. At least my rats have fur!

    Perhaps a bit of a stretch or indeed I may have missed this but does anyone actually have an extensive list of what rides are actually at Winter Wonderland this year?

    I went for the first time at the weekend and it seems I managed not to even come across many rides that were there!

    Work meeting in London tomorrow, near Hyde Park.... wondering whether it's too geeky to pop over to WW for a solo ride on Olympia Looping afterwards?!?

    Provided you've got £9 with you and no one else objects to it, then I'd go for it if I were you!

    Good advice, Matt.

    I'll have a contactless card with me and no one to object, so I think I might go for it! It might just help me miss the rush hour traffic anyway.

    Another vote for do it.
    Would be silly not to.
    I'd do all the others as well, it is Christmas after all.
    Father Christmas told me you have been very good this year.
    Nearly.

    Took your advice and did it... twice . Was just gonna pop in for a cheese bratwurst but no queue for Olympia so I paid contactless and walked straight on to the second to back row and then the back row.

    I love this coaster. If packs a lot in to a small space... aside from the loops it really makes the most of its footprint. The new LED lighting is looks brilliant but the station doesn’t match now so that needs doing too.

    Then I had a hot chocolate with whisky and done Hangover! Insanity. I love the view from up there though.

    Circus circus and dr archibald aren’t solo rides and aside from that I wouldn’t pay for any other rides there now... done enough mouses!

    This year, contactless is accepted everywhere and with Apple Pay it’s so easy to spend massively, without really thinking about it.

    Won’t work when I post them as img!

    I’m picking my coaster pass up tomorrow, on the email I’ve got it says print the letter and take it, will they accept it off my phone or will it need to be printed?

    I’d advise following the instructions, whilst you’d expect it to be fine showing it on phone I did see people being turned away at the purple gate for not having a printed ticket. whether that’s down to security following instructions or other reasons who knows but I’d play it safe
