We were invited to Weston to join family for family day. We had to get up early as we needed to be at Weston for 10am and it's a 2 hour drive from Banbury. We hit a lot of traffic on the M5 which delays us 45 mins.
When we arrived we headed over the Funland @ Tropicana as there were two coaster credits that we didn't have. Funland isn't massive. It has the 2 coasters, a pirate ship, dodgems, Waltzers, a carousel and 4 small toddler rides. It operates a token system. We purchased 20 for £20 and got 4 free. This was more than enough as we only wanted to do the coasters.
First up was the Wild Mouse. This was only 3 weeks old at the time we rode it. It has a very simple layout and one of the bigger coasters Rebecca has done. It was 4 tokens per person. Rebecca loved it, asking if she could ride again.
After the Wild Mouse we went over to get the 2nd credit a Wacky Worm. This is a very common children's coaster. This small coaster is 2 tokens as does 2 laps.
We had 8 tokens left so Rebecca and I went back on the Wild Mouse again. She even put her hands up. She really does love the coasters. (Which pleases us)
After that we headed back towards the pier. The rest of the family were still on the beach so we decided to get some lunch. We had seen a few fish & chip shops so Rebecca requested we go to the green one which was Famous Harry's.
We caught back up with family at Weatherspoons. They were going to mini golf which Rebecca hates so we parted ways again and headed to Grand Pier.
I had seen some vlogs from the pier so had a few ideas of what was inside. It's not that you see this for yourself that you realise how big this place actually is. There are a few rides and loads of arcade machines. Something I did note was that the claw machines are very cheap - they are only 20p a go or 6 goes for £1 which is the best price I have seen in the UK, We had a go on a few but we did go in with a budget
One of Rebecca's favourites is the 2p machines so we changed a few pounds and played on them for an hour. By the time we had done that it was nearly home time.
We had a fab time at Weston and will certainly consider going again.
