    Sounds like a good craic! I will join for the Friday evening and Saturday if uni timetable allows. Thorpe is a no-go due to uni, and Chessington a no due to not having a Merlin pass!

    I'll certainly meet up for any non-Merlin stuff in London, if I'm free.

    Especially if booze is involved.

    The location is perfect for me, as I live in Camden already!

    I'm still toying with the idea of picking up an MAP, so I can't commit to the parks just yet. But I'm a guarantee for the Friday night and the Saturday!

    I'll now be there for Chessington! But can't promise anything of the Friday and Saturday. Will be a case of seeing whether I get called in on the day.

    Please book a ticket for Creepy Caves, their award winning scare attraction, here.

    I booked for 4.30pm. £5 standard / £4 AP.

    Right, so whenwhatamwho peeps doing post-park on the sat? I wrap about 5pm, and will definitely need a drink after a day of fapball! Also around all day Friday and Sunday.

    As you all know, my lack of social media leaves me somewhat cut off these days, and given that I've not been on meets lately.... I kinda miss you guys. For some reason.
    ;)


    TLDR: I want to booze with y'all.
