Some great footage of summerland

Recommended Posts

It definitely wasn't a pretty building at all. I seem to remember going to watch some wrestling in there once anyone remember that?

Probably Phil Kermode nuzzling a fat mans anus in a leotard.

 

I can never get an airport taxi off him to this day.

5 Summerland things

 

1. The octagonal pool table

2. Massive New Years Eve parties on the Piazza Level

3. The whole clothes basket/conveyor thing in the aquadrome

4. The Cave (and the cave thread on here)

5. The inflatable water slide in the aquadrome.

Oh God, dont say that, I am worried that either of us might have had sloppy seconds at some stage.

It was a magical place. Roller skating was my thing, down in the basement, but everything was there.

 

The idea was brilliant and as it says in the video, way ahead of its time.

 

Perhas an even bigger complex could be built using that whole area and incorporate a ski slope even. It seems from the video that there were plans for a similar place that included a TT museum. It's crazy that the Isle of Man does not have the biggest best motorcycle museum in the world.

I think I may have got it wrong. The first time I went into Summerland was during the fire when everyone else was trying to get out...

Just short of the money, the will and things called tourists. we have none of those.

As for a bike museum, why would we have one ? Pie in the sky fella.
