I hate to disappoint you but both of the above parks you mentioned are based
around the north and north midlands of England. I'll give you a list of all
the decent parks but be warned; getting to some of them is a pain.
(0990) 204 060
19.50 for an ***. 15.50 for children aged between 4-13
I'd recommend taking the train and a bus from Stoke on Trent if you can't
get a car (even then it's a real g*t to get to and I wouldn't recommend a
car unless the person who is driving it is very well adjusted to English
Blackpool Pleasure Beach
(01253) 341 003
20.00 for a book of 12 A class tickets (it takes 2 for PMBO and 1 for most
If you can't make any other park make this one. It's in the North West of
England and once again I would recommend using the train. However it's
really easy to find (just follow the big one) but the weather can change as
it's positioned on the coast.
Chessington World of Adventures
(01372) 727 227
19.00 for ***s. 15.00 for children aged 4 - 13
It's a mini AT in the South very near London. Another train job I would say.

12.00 high season; 8.00 low season for an A Class ride unlimited ride
It's a bit like Blackpool Pleasure Beach but not a very aesthetic park. They
do have a 3rd generation SLC which is very smooth (I tried it out last
Saturday on a special ecc trip). Phone to check whether it is open or not
(they opened it for the ecc specially). All the staff are very friendly and
it has a kick ass outdoor go kart track.

9.99 for an unlimited ride wristband. Tokens can be bought though.
This park is very special as it has a coaster just like the famous Leap the
Dips (side friction rails) called the "Runaway Train" or something like
that. I'm not totally sure though.

170 Ff for ***s, 120Ff for children up to 12.
A very nice park and very nicely themed. I would recomend it above
Disneyland but beware the Goudrix. I know of people who have the scars from
riding it over 5 years ago!!! Tonnere de Zeus is also rated as one of the
best woodies in Europe. You can get to it on the metro I think.

Well I guess I don't need to tell you about this one.
FOR ALL OF THESE PARKS I WOULD RECOMMEND PICKING UP A BROCHURE FROM TOURIST

I hope that this tells you everything that you need to know and a bit more
