With TWO family passes to Winter Funderland at the RDS Simmonscourt, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 to give away we asked: What was your most memorable Funderland experience?
You answered in your tens.
Al: ‘I have to say my most memorable Funderland experience was looking forward to my mother’s reasons for why were couldn’t go this year….’
Cosmic: ‘My most memorable Funderland experience was hanging upside down 100 feet in the air on some ominiously named ride with a bunch of spike haired goths in the 1980s, shouting the words to the “Our Father” backwards much to the annoyance of everyone around me.’
Boba Fettucine: ‘It’s a fact that these competitions are always won on the basis of length, detail and cloying sentimentality of response (the more emigration, dying parents and paddywhackery that can be worked in the better). Don’t expect to see the Broadsheet Prize for pithy copyrighting at the Kinsale awards [Irish ad gongs]. Having said that, I’ll give it a go to allow them the opportunity to redeem themselves: I have to say my most memorable Funderland experience was that time a few years back when that thing happened and those people were there.’
Mark: ‘I have to say my most memorable Funderland experience was having to get my braces cut loose from my girlfriend’s braces after our first kiss on the Carousel over 30 years ago. If I win I’ll bookface her to see if she wants to relive the memory.’
Nice Anne (Dammit): ‘My most memorable Funderland experience was killing myself laughing at this pair of eeiits who were trapped in a snog with each other as each of their braces got caught up…’
Paul M: ‘I have to say my most memorable Funderland experience was watching a young kid at a stall hit the target with a crossbow. The chap running the stall took the crossbow to reload it, turned his back and bashed the already wonky crosshair sight further off centre. He gleefully handed it back to the kid who then proceeded to hit the bullseye once again and win the prize.’
Frilly Keane: ‘My must memorable Funderland experience was back in 2002’s first days, handed the lad a fresh from the press tenner, got change from a fifty. Bate that.’
