DISNEYLAND PARIS - Day 3 - 05/05/07


Pigment liner

On the first day I was silly enough to take a ride on Space Mountain: Mission 2. Ride?...It felt more like an assault! My head was continually banged from side to side during the ordeal and I felt like I was sandwiched between Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson. It threw my head around so violently that my earring came out and plummeted into the darkness beneath, lost forever. So, you can imagine my hesitance looking up at Thunder Mountain but I decided to take the plunge and go for it. Was I glad I did?...You betcha'! It is a fantastic ride, packed with thrills and turns and I loved every minute. Using the VIP tickets, everyone decided to go again and I sat out with Mum to capture a quick pen sketch.

Later that day we bumped into the big blue guy from Monsters Inc, Sullivan. He decided to be playful with Mum, which I think nerved her a little more than she let on, he was anything but predictable but great fun!

You're braver than me...I wouldn't go on Space Mountain! These are great sketches, especially considering you must have done them very quickly. I loved that movie too!

Thanx Dave.
I didn't feel very brave while riding Space Mountain, God, it was horrible! Never again!!!
My youngest was on the ride also, I kept worrying how he was coping since I was struggling so much which added to my nightmare.

Dave said...

Bet your youngest loved it!

You're very brave, Anita! I think I'm past my days of theme park rides. lol Great sketches and, I too, loved the Monsters Inc. movie.

Oh these are great! I love the monster! That ride sounds like no fun, though.

Anita said...

Actually Dave, he wasn't keen either. I still don't know how his little neck survived it!

I like the rollercoasters Serena. Indiana Jones was terrifying, I screamed the whole way through and ruined my voice, but when it was over I realised I'd quite liked it. LOL!
I'm not good with silly things like the tea cups that go around and around continually, something like that would make me feel sick in a second.

Anita said...

Thanx Pugs...You are right, no fun at all!

Woohoo! Rollercoasters! I used to be a nut for them when I was a kid, but now I'm grown up and my kids have to drag me to get me on them. But, then I find I still enjoy them. Love your pen sketch, it's simply wonderful.

Anita said...

Thankyou Phthaloblu.
The rides always seem nicer when they are over don't they? LOL!
