    Thomas has always been nuts about coasters and rides - Matthew has always been terrified of anything over and above IASW.

    Took them to Chessington yesterday as the weather was good and bribed him sooooooooooooooo much to go on the Runaway mine train.

    The lady checked all the lap bars and called down the train

    'everyone ok'

    al lttle voice piped up

    'no, i want to get off' wich we ignored

    By the second lap he was sayin 'woohoo' under his breath and by the third lap he had his ahands in the air - when we got off the ride he was saying ' that was the bestest thing ever'

    we have told him it is the same as BTM so now he wants to do that very badly

    :D that would be a dream come true for me

    so I expect it will be in rehab

    Isn't it fantastic when they combat a fear! I did BTM for the first time this year and loved it. If I can enjoy it I have ever faith that Matthew will!

    Well done Matthew! :2uge4p4:

    Edited to correct name of child!!!!

    The plan now is to go straight to BTM on the first morning of the first day to break him in straight away :D - My greastest wish is that we will all do Splash together one day - the problem is with Matthew not wanting to ride we end up with on eof us sat outside a ride for an hour at a time - would be great if we could all queue together

    Woohoo! Congratulations, Matthew!

    With any luck, he'll enjoy BTMRR so much he'll just have to go on Splash Mountain! :D

    Make sure you get the photo the first time you all ride Splash together. It's a great momento. :)

    Great news! Our last trip was the best ever because we could all go on the rides together - luckily Caitlin is adventurous when it comes to rides, we have always put them on rides from a very young age and luckily it has worked out well for us as they both love them all.

    All of you together on Splash Mountain will be fantastic! :)
