Discovery Kids :: Whizzball!

For just over a week now, Whizzball! has got me hooked. Ostensibly it's meant for children, mostly thanks to the Shed, I've had my lunchtimes and home times taken up with this highly addictive game, and the fact that it's all done on-line means that there a never ending supply of games to play. You can even design you own, which I have done:

Catapult Nightmare 2 and Catapult Nightmare are tha 2 hardest, but I'm most proud of one that I've lost... Damn, where'd that Conveyor belt-only puzzle.

My usernames are kylet and xkylet, try and find my puzzles and enjoy!

I'm going to the zoo tomorrow,
Zoo tomorrow, zoo tomorrow;
I'm going to the zoo tomorrow,
And we can stay all day.

Actually, I went yesterday, and Chessington isn't really that much of a zoo anymore...

Had a good day, though, but a bit like Thorpe Park last year, it was a bit of a dissapointment. The place needs a bit of upkeep, and a lick of paint.

Also some of the rides were poor copies of better rides at Disneyland, etc.

Me and the grandmother had fun trying to decipher where all the animals were during the park's days as a zoo. "Oh, there's Burth Stub House, so the giraffes must have been over there, and there's where the little train was..."

Legoland has a lot to teach other theme parks.

Nostalgia ain't what it used to be.
