As it is almost the end of the school holidays now, and as I had promised the children ages ago that I would take them to Burntisland to the 'shows' - we went this evening! This is the last week of the shows so a lot of things like dodgems etc weren't there - it was mainly smaller rides for the younger kids and those stalls where you can 'hook a duck' and win a prize.
Lucy was really keen to go on this caterpillar rollercoaster and managed to persuade her brother to accompany her. Here they are waiting for it to start - all was well at this point and as the caterpillar started to roll forward - about a minute later as things sped up a little poor Adam started screaming and was not a happy bunny! It was way too fast for him and he had to endure another round before he could get off. I felt so sorry for him, he was sobbing and wanted to go home. He soon got over it but made me promise not to tell his friends - bless him.
This was more like it! Adam was having much more fun on these motorbikes, crashing into the barrier every two minutes.
These 'orbiters' were fun too, they spun round as well as going backwards and forwards.
Miss L and Mister A also had a couple of shots of hook the duck and were thrilled with their prizes. Adam got a spy kit and a ninja sword and Miss Lucy's spoils were a bow and arrow set (she was so thrilled!) and a ball and bat combo. To finish off they got one of those teeth rotting sugar dummies each and were happily busy with them on the way home in the car! The dummies will probably last longer than the prizes.
