A waterpark in the tropics. And they call it SNOWBAY?!!! I mean wtf?!!!!
Yeah I should have heeded this ominous warning. But I didn’t. So it’s on with the new speedo swimming trunks, which although a couple of sizes too small, are nonetheless highly effective in keeping at bay the conservatively-dressed mums - and their hyperactive offspring.
We arrived at the Taman Mini complex about an hour after leaving home - and then had to complete as many circuits as you’d expect to find in your average F1 grand prix race before finally managing to nail a parking spot.
So around 10.30 on a Saturday morning, and we make our way into the waterpark, and whilst not quite expecting any snow, I am still amazed by what I can see –
The place is bloody packed!
And when I say packed, I mean PACKED – a veritable “seething mass of humanity”, with people EVERYWHERE. This I was told later was the wonder of promotion – free tickets for the shoppers at local hypermarkets – and cut price deals for the dreaded school kids who came by the busload.
This alas, is snow joke for a water park and does not make for a particularly pleasant day out. Not unless you like queuing for hours just to ride on one of the slides, that is. Oh well. There may be no snow about but they’d better be some bloody ice-cold beer in the fridge when I get home! Arggg!!!!!!
