    Our South meet is back for 2016 with a difference! From Friday, 24th to Sunday, 26th June - we'll be visiting two of the best parks in the south of England, and staying over for two nights in a hotel nearby! Cue socialising over a pint of beer, a tasty dinner and good (often theme park related) chat! We have removed Chessington from the 2016 South meet and replaced it with Paultons, following a bad experience at Chessington in 2015.

    Please confirm your attendance here!


    Here's the plan:

    Friday, 24th June 2016
    8.15pm - Group meets for a meal at the Harvester (Stag and Hounds, adjacent to the Travelodge) - Dan has booked table for the whole group
    Accommodation at Basingstoke Travelodge

    Saturday, 25th June 2016
    8.45am - Depart Travelodge for the 40 minute drive to Paultons Park
    Breakfast at Rownhams Services Westbound M27 (McDonald's, Costa)
    PAULTONS PARK: Open 10.00am to 5.30pm
    8.00pm - Group meets for a meal at Pizza Express (adjacent to Travelodge) - £9.95pp 2 course special.
    Accommodation at Basingstoke Travelodge

    Sunday, 26th June 2016
    8.15am - Depart Travelodge for the 45 minute drive to Thorpe Park
    Breakfast at Fleet Services Eastbound, M3 (McDonald's, Starbucks)
    THORPE PARK: Open 9.30am to 6.00pm

    PRICES
    Travelodge Accommodation: £50.00 per person for 2 nights, room only, based on 3 sharing
    Paultons Park: £25.75 + booking fee per person (online, gate price £30.00)
    Thorpe Park: Don't you have an Annual Pass?

    Please ensure you have transport between the hotel and the parks.

    :D

    @RussellH, @bluesonichd and myself will be there, and more than likely will be eating at the evening restaurants.

    We'll be doing Chessie on the Saturday instead of Paultons but will be doing Thorpe on the Sunday with everyone. We are also booked in at Basingstoke Travelodge... for the sosche 'n' all that.

    :D

    The new Liseberg dark ride, probably
    I'll be there and I believe Dave will be too. I'm especially excited to return to a childhood haunt of mine (since Paultons was one of my first parks) but I won't help grumbling about how they retired Percy the Owl...

    He was a HOOT HOOT.

    I'll be at Thorpe but not Paultons due to a clash with TST Crystal Maze. Full plans TBC

    I would be interested in going to see how Paultons Park has developed since my first and only visit 9 years ago, but alas I'm at Glastonbury
