Stephen: This may look like Paris, but we’re in Blackpool, in the North of England - about an hour’s drive from Manchester. And as you can see, it’s a seaside town and for more than a hundred years people have been coming here for their holidays. In fact, Ashlie and I used to come here when we were kids.
Ashlie: Yes, that’s right. I used to love coming to Blackpool – the beach, the sunshine, the fish and chips. And the ice cream…
Stephen: And I love the theme park and all the rides. Come on Ash, this is going to be great!
Stephen: Excuse me. Have you just been on this?
Punter: Yeah mate!
Stephen: What was it like?
Punter: It were crazy! I’ve been on it about four times – I can’t get enough!
Stephen: Was it scary?
Punter: It was scary – I think it was.
Stephen: But you enjoyed it?
Punter: Yeah – I loved it.
Stephen: Alright – thanks guys – see you later!
Stephen: Come on Ash, shall we have a go?
Ashlie: No way!
Stephen: Oh Ash, don’t be such a chicken.
Ashlie: No way, Stephen. You can have a go on that if you want, but there is no way I'm going on it.
Stephen: I’ll wave to you when I go past. See you later!
Ashlie: See you!
Ashlie: Hiya! Blimey, are you OK? You look a little white, Stephen.
Stephen: What? I’ve never felt better. That was amazing, Ashlie. You should have come on it, too. Shame you were too scared.
Ashlie: You weren’t scared?
Stephen: Of course not. I loved it.
Ashlie: Oh, that’s great - funny though. If you weren’t scared, well then - who’s this is in the photographs?
Stephen: Um ...
Ashlie: I mean it looks like you, doesn’t it? Look, he’s even wearing the same t-shirt.
Stephen: Oh, come on Ash, let’s have a look at the other rides.
Ashlie: Oh, I like the look of this one, the log flume. Shall we have a go on that?
Stephen: You can if you want, but... to be honest, it doesn’t look like my kind of ride. I like the exciting ones, you know? I’ll watch you. Are you sure you’ll be OK? You’re not scared of getting wet?
Ashlie: Don’t worry – I’ll be fine.
Ashlie: Stephen, look at you. What happened?
Stephen: Don’t ask! Why aren’t you wet? You know what? I think I’ve had enough of the theme park. I need to sit down.
Ashlie: I’ll tell you what - why don’t we go and have a nice cup of tea, eh?
Stephen: And some fish and chips? Yeah, let’s do that.
Ashlie: Come on then.
Stephen: Hang on, Ash. We’ll have that cup of tea in a minute, but first I have got to have a go on that.
