All the fun of the fear

The Spook Express ghost train rollercoaster at Great Yarmouth’s Joy Land certainly filled Iz with a healthy amount of mild peril.

She loves the ride, having been on it numerous times before and even refers to it as the Scooby-Doo ride thanks to its nods to Frankenstein’s Monster and Dracula et al. It would just seem that since Iz last dared to enter the ride they have souped it up a little, or should that be made it more evil?

That Changing Rooms style makeover including dangling things in the darkness – big this season – and tolling bells. It was the latter that caused Iz the most distress, the bells, the bells! Quasimodo?

Her ears are like a (vampire) bats and are particularly sensitive to be fair.

And finally, they’ve increased its speed, the Spook Express therefore giving a whole new spin to scream if you want to go faster.

I think it is fair to say that Iz enjoyed something with a little less ‘horsepower’ after that.
