    Sunday 14th September

    It was still dark as usual when we woke however we took our coffees out by the pool and had a quick swim while they cooled. Once it had got light we had breakfast and were thinking of getting ready for Universal when we saw a balloon.

    This was followed by several others.

    They were landing in an area just behind our estate.

    [​IMG]

    Excitement over, we headed off to Universal Studios.

    [​IMG]

    Quick dash through the streets of New York

    [​IMG]

    to the Mummy ride.

    The park was very quiet and the ride was a walk on.
    As we came out they were getting ready for the Blues Bros show


    [​IMG]

    We met them just around the corner.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next we were off, past the back streets

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Through the candy store with loads of toffee apples

    [​IMG]

    and some strange candy

    [​IMG]

    Stopped at the Ice-cream kiosk for my Dipping Dots

    [​IMG]

    and round to the new Simpsons ride

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This replaces the Back to the future ride. Think the simulator cars are the same. As the car starts off you go down a huge drop on a coaster which was fantastic but after that the ride gets quite bumpy and non of our party were impressed and we all voted it a miss.

    We then saved ET

    [​IMG]

    Next it was off to the dockside for a boat trip.

    [​IMG]

    We must have been unlucky on this trip because we got attacked by a shark.

    [​IMG]

    Met Donkey on the way out of the Shrek show

    [​IMG]

    Halloween decorations were well under way as we walked round.

    [​IMG]

    After the park we stopped at Down Town for a sandwich and a look at the sights and believe me there were some sights.

    [​IMG]

    Had to go back to the villa for a lie down after that shock!!
    Center of the Universe tomorrow (MK)
