|09:28 pm - some say his torso is detachable...|
Google Street Maps has been busy mapping out a bunch of UK amusement parks, including Alton Towers and Thorpe Park. I've never been coastering in the UK, but I'm having fun living vicariously through this interface for sure.
The best part comes over at Legoland Windsor, where you can catch a glimpse of a certain special someone taking lessons on the Legoland driving school track. Wonder what his lap time was.
"They say he has his very own Lego action figure."
That is SO FREAKIN AWESOME.

Then We can dig it.
Holy crap, it's the Stig....

Now I want a Stig Lego figure.
I wish I had my old Lego stash! He'd probably be easy to make with a white spacesuit and stuff.
One day you will come & visit us and I will happily escort you (Blackpool too, though, right?)
There is but one response to that and that response is "Hell yes."
Somewhere, there is an epic British coastal trip which results in a book about seaside funfairs. You should check out Great Yarmouth's marine parade with its sad or brilliant row of mock-Vegas slot machine joints (and the antique coaster to the south tho' I'm not sure if you can see that from the road)http://tinyurl.com/grtyarmapview
.................Can I invite myself along on this excursion por favor?
'you' and 'us' are hugely elastic categories :D

I had never heard of this peculiar fellow until this post and its comments. Delightful!
