Corby trip of doom
Its been unseasonably cold here in London with snow and ice stopping me having fun riding my bike. There are no proper indoor parks in or anywhere near London; the only covered park is Bay 66 and that is under a motorway with open sides. The rain blows in the sides, its rather cold there plus I went a couple of weeks ago and they’d closed due to condensation dripping from the roof. Bay 66 is really good fun, but it still sucks that we don’t have a proper indoor park here.
After endless cold, dark, frustrated winter evenings googling, I came to the conclusion that the nearest decent indoor parks to London were Corby and Broadstairs. Note I said nearEST not near…. Corby is at least two hours drive away and Broadstairs is about the same. Oh, and did I mention that I don’t have a car?
So it was that I decided to treat myself to a trip to Adrenalin Alley, Corby’s indoor park complete with foam pit, resi ramp, resi vert and resi midi. It was pretty extravagent – £22 for a return fair booked in advance but on the plus side the train only took an hour each way.
Imagine my disappointment when I arrived to be told the park was such as condensation had dripped from the roof and frozen on the floor.
Imagine my further frustration when I got back on the train to London and was unceremoniously booted off and charged the price of a single ticket to the next stop as my return seat wasnt’t booked until 7pm. Faced with eight hours sitting in sub zero temperatures at Kettering train station or a new ticket for 40 quid, I bunked the next train home anyway as a fuck you to to the miserable shit who kicked us off the first one.
I wonder if I will ever get to ride Corby. After wasting so much time and money it’s probably gonna be next year before I take that risk again. The park looked AMAZING too!
