The Wall Of Water Is Impressive…

Whilst those who celebrate Christmas are recovering and enjoying a “light”  lunch of leftover roast veggies, meat and Christmas Pudding , here is another Kiwidutch retrospective post from our autumn trip to Legoland Germany last year.

I was surprised to see quite a few rides around the park and in since the place is so enormous, it was day three before we got to this section and discovered more rides to amaze us.

I of course kept well out of trouble and viewed from a distance, Himself and the kids either jumped in excitedly or bailed as the viewings of the attractions progressed.

Little Mr for instance, at first sight rather liked the idea of a boat ride, but after seeing that the boat in question takes a big slide down and produces a huge wall of water around it he quickly reversed his decision and frequently repeated the phrase “noooo way!”.

Kiwi Daughter opted out as soon as she saw the drop from the “cliff”, which amused me because on some of the other rides she appeared to enjoy the stomach churning  turns.

Himself however was not so reticent and declared that this was one ride he really would love to do. The close-ups of his face as he hurtles towards the bottom of the slide are rather funny, but sadly not for posting due to reasons of internet privacy.

The looks on my children’s faces as they watched their father hurtle towards the bottom of the slide were also rather priceless, so our private family album is richer for the experience.

Himself stood in the queue and once his turn to board came around, he waved and he and his boat departed around the back of the “cliff” on which the waterslide stands.

Little did I know, but the ride itself is quite long and very exciting: there are even a few surprises (which I won’t mention here as not to spoil the fun if anyone ends up going on the ride after reading this).

I spent quite a while waiting for Himself’s boat to appear at the top of the “cliff” and used the time to photograph other boats, since the wave made at the bottom is particularly impressive.

Himself went around several times in all, and loved it… as usual the attention to Lego detail is on hand,  Lego flamingo’s,  gulls and pelicans don’t at all mind getting wet by this ride.
