A relaxed military style trip. May 2022. Day 10. Madame Tussaudís, Sealife, Bahama Breeze

Friday 20th May

Index

Woke about 8. Todays plan was Aquatica but it was raining lightly and forecast storms (didnít come until later so could have risked it)
Instead we decided to use our indoor tickets but these attractions didnít open until 11.
I started to pack starting with our purchases.
This is Matts under amour haul so far.




He also had a couple of other tops but started to wear them already.
I also emailed spirit airlines about the lady that helped us out, I didnít have her name but only 2 people were on the desk that morning. I received a positive reply this week so that was nice.
Took a trolley to Icon Park. I brought the 3 attraction tickets before the holiday, they simply scanned the bar code.
Waxwork spam coming up






















I have never been to a Madame Tussaudís before. I was impressed with the set up for taking photos and how realistic the waxworks looked.
We then went across to the Sealife centre.


You could add a VR shark encounter, I think for $25.
It was a nice way to spend a couple of hours.
We popped back to the hotel and then took a trolley to vineyard outlets at the other end of I Drive. This has more designer shops like Prada and people were queuing to get in some of them.
Matt nearly brought sunglasses but changed his mind. Didnít really spend too long here and the plan was to take the trolley back to premium outlets for Bahama Breeze.
A trolley soon came, this was good, we thought. It was a green line which goes along universal blvd instead of I drive but they both end up at the outlets.
Off we go, only 4 passengers including ourselves.
Then the trolley drives into the depot for a driver change, this took about 10/15 minutes, the drivers were chatting away.
Back on our travels, it was nice to see the other route and drive past new places.
Just as we pulled up to the stop, rain started. We just made it to Bahama breeze before the heavens opened.
We sat outside. It was happy hour so half price appetizers, beers and selected cocktails.
We ordered drinks, I had the Ultimate pina coloda while Matt stuck with beer.
Appetizers were beef empanadas, coconut shrimp, skillet jerk shrimp and nachos with a crab dip.


It was amazing, we were gutted about not trying the food here before.
We ordered more drinks from the I pad. I tried a bahamarita.

It has a shot of tequila. It looks good but I didnít really like it.
Lovely outside area and good weather again.

We couldnít leave without looking in Under amour and Calvin Kline.
More purchases for Matt. The guys in under amour were so friendly and helpful, I felt we could be on first name terms after all our visits. 🤣
Matt really did get some good deals here, especially for his golf clothes.
We used the discount booklet again, so 70% off.

Total $39.15.

Total $54.12
We also walked over to Ross, couldnít face it so walked out again.
Trolley back to Icon Park, Matt really wanted to ride the wheel at night but with another storm approaching it was closed.
As we walked past tin roof bar, we saw a huge queue for something.
Buffalo Wild Wings for drinks.

I googled to see if I could find out what the queue was about. Itís for moobys, a pop up of a fictional burger place from Kevin smith movies. As megacon had just started, it was a popular place.
We sat outside and the storm really started. We moved our table in but ended up moving to the middle. It was a great place to people and storm watch.

We stayed here until it eased off but still drizzly.
The pedestrian crossing near icon park doesnít really give you a lot of time to get across both sections.
Tonight we got to the middle and an idiot was parked right on the crossing so we ran out of time and was stuck in the middle. The driver reversed, bit late, as we stood there we saw a trolley. The stop is next to the crossing.
We prayed for the lights to change so we could hop on but the trolley drove past us leaving us to walk back to the hotel.
If I was at home I may have done a certain hand signal to the driver but I contained myself as didnít really want to get arrested or start a fight.

The waxworks looks very authentic! You look tiny compared to the basketball player! Matt has certainly done well at Under Armour!

The food looks delicious!

We went to the waxworks in 2019 and were very impressed, loads of photo opportunities and not overcrowded.

Madame Tussaud looked fun and you managed to get a few bits on your shopping trip. The cocktail did look really pretty, a shame it didn't quite live up to expectations and taste as good as it looked.

The waxworks were really impressive, we had terrible ones growing up, along regent rod in Yarmouth. I think it was voted worse waxworks in the UK before it went
Matt loved the under amour shop.

The last shop of the holiday.
The pina colada was so much nicer. The food was unbelievable though.
