With an incredibly cold and early 4AM start, I hit the road heading to pick up fellow explorer Tiny Urban Exploration and embarked on what turned into a very long 3 hour drive in slippery conditions to Lincolnshire.

Upon arrival we quickly scoped out access and found ourselves inside the grounds with the biggest smiles on our faces since taking three attempts at Bunker B.

Unfortunately after 10 mins and literally only taking 5 pictures we were caught by a group of girls looking after the remaining animals at the site. I continued to snap away after being escorted back out the front gate while the girls explained they had already had to kick out numerous explorers earlier that day.

Not to be detoured we made our way to another nearby location for a few hours and returned to Pleasure Island later in the day and quickly found our way back into the site again.

This time we were greeted by other fellow explorers inside the theme park grounds. Great to meet other explorers, a big hello if you’re reading! It was great to meet the two who kept us all company into the darkness of the night, unfortunately I have forgotten your names *Insert facepalm emoji*

With daylight well and truely gone and the night time darkness causing pictures to become nearly impossible without giving away our position to security we began our game of cat and mouse while attempting to leave the site. To cut a long story short and using a train shed as cover, we were eventually caught and again escorted off the site.

Leaving with less pictures than expected and the dissapointment of not climbing the roller coaster, the days explore was still amazing!

Pleasure Island Family Theme Park was a theme park in Lincolnshire, England. It was commonly known as Pleasure Island. The park opened on 27 May 1993 and closed on 29 October 2016. It was originally a subsidiary of Flamingo Land Ltd. Pleasure Island became independent of Flamingo Land in May 2010 and was owned and operated by DewarSavile Enterprises Ltd until closing at the end of the 2016 season. On 21 September 2016, it was announced that Pleasure Island would be closing at the end of its current season.

Towards the end of the day we thought the tour bus had already arrived! It was genuinly hard to distinguish between the many explorers and security.

Animals are still there, or at least the sea lions are still there.

Yeah the wooden dome thing close to the road has been burnt down unfortunately, security told us that over £30,000s worth of damage had already been caused while they were escorting us off site so I dread to think now.

I read somewhere that everything had been auctioned off earlier this year.....would be interesting to walk around the site now and see what it looks like after that
