    Your back still aches from Megafobia.

    4. Some idiot would always lose a shoe on Bounce.

    Wood > Metal.

    6. And being a rebel by pissing about for the camera.

    9. Going on kid's rides when you were way too old to be going on them.

    10. Going on Splash (aka Hydro) and getting wetter than a million Welsh summers.

    11. Or getting wet by simply standing on the bridge. / BuzzFeed

    Either way, you probably didn't bother paying to use that futuristic space dryer to dry yourself off.

    12. Using the extra cost of Vertigo as an excuse not to go on it.

    13. Being super excited when Speed was introduced.

    It has a loop. How modern is that?

    14. Speeding down the tracks on he sledge/toboggan things.

    There'd always be some arsehole travelling slowly in front of you, preventing your attempt at breaking the sound barrier.

    15. The people playing mini golf kind of stressed you out.

    16. Being given nightmares by Brer Rabbit.

    RIP you creepy, demonic rabbits.

    17. And after all the rides got too much, you could just chill on the boats.

    18. Always being reminded of your days spent at Oakwood.
