One day to "ONDALAND". To be remembered ...

I had planned a trip for last Sunday 27, at "ONDALAND", a water park, located in the city of Novara, far less than 200 kilometers from my house. You know, I'm just person alone, I pratically have no friends, so I had to join in a group of unknown people. But these people were all (and I really say all) South American! We were about 50, with the certainty of 49 South Americans, only one Italian, that was ME! No comment on the bus trip with them! When we arrived at the Aquapark, there was a "break the rows", as if to say: appointment at the bus at 6.00PM o'clock. Meanwhile, each one on his way and ... enjoy yourself! So I put a towel on the floor and started exploring the park's inside. It is really huge! There are all kinds of water-slides: slow, fast, kamikaze, covered tubes, etc. Some attractions (exactly 3), it is necessary to be in pairs, single is not allowed. This, because the overall weight has to be over a certain value, otherwise it will be blocked halfway through the slider. Then there's wave pool, slow river to go down with dinghy, water jets of all types, etc. For the kids then, fun is guaranteed by a multitude of attractions! Ok I did practically everything. Even the slides for 2, I was able to "recruit" a volunteer, begging him to repeat the sliding to make me a favor! Ok, return home without problems, A fun day to be remembered nicely!

I am glad you had a great day Alessando. At least you were not obliged to stay with the group of the Bus and you were able to spend the day as you liked more.

Yes. I emphasize a point of view with you, because you are the person here, with whom I have more confidence. I see in this day, a "break away" from my daily life-routine, done, only and only ever with the presence of my mom! Does it seem to you?

@alberello75 You must do something like this more often. You need to feel free and to enjoy a day out of your home ALONE!

Yes. I have spent a wonderful day. Would you have the courage to speed down from such water-slides?

@alberello75 My problem wouldn't be going down, it would be the climb up. I'm not good with heights.

@kobesbuddy It was a wonderful experience. But after all, try to understand, I have 42 years. Usually those kinds of games, they are suitable for teenagers. With this I do not mean to never go there again, of course. But surely, it will take a long time ...

The water park looks very good.As I have seen on the pic there are many visitors enjoying the park.Did you understand the conversation of the south Americans in the bus?It might have been a little bit a lonely feeling,but I think the water park was very entertaining and in the same time a pleasant experience.

@m_audrey6788 No. I don't believe. By now I'm 42 years old. For me, funny ok. But for the rest, I find them to be suitable for kids and teenagers

Was the one you recruited a South American of the group or someone else? It's great you managed to try the attractions for couples.

- I only realized later that the trip was organized by a group of South Americans. The same broker, was one of them. - It was not easy at first, knowing nobody. Then, I braved myself and asked someone if, please, could repeat the slide for me. (basically there, we have gained both of them)

Many like, others do not. All in all, even you like me, are enough grew up to enjoy with such attractions. Maybe they are made for teenager boys!

As I have written in my discussion, pratically I have no friends! Then I went there alone, but with an organized trip. Among other things all done by non-Italian people!
