Space World

In need of a little fun and excitement over the weekend Nathan and I took my niece and nephew to a near-ish theme park as a promised Christmas present.

Having just been to Universal Studios we weren't too sure how Space World would compare but we were pleasantly surprised... we would probably even go as far as to say it was better!

There was a great balance of not so scary rollercoasters we could all enjoy as well as a few heart in the mouth ones only Nathan and Jo were brave enough to queue for.

Our visit just so happened to coinside with a "cos-play" event. There's a really funny culture of dressing up in crazy, random costumes here in Japan - something none of us can quite work out - but basically the park was overrun with people walking round wearing strange costumes complete with wigs and the most ridiculously high shoes! It certianly gave us some extra entertainment!

We had an excellent day with Jo and the kids... hope they enjoyed it as much as we did!

I feel well. Does that mean I should get drunk or what? Awesome present! I want one.
