Can I be gauche and ask how much it cost?
The adroit (geddit) answer is it didn't cost us anything as my father-in-law bought us vouchers as a Christmas present. But anyway it's £60 each; I don't know if there are any concessions or family discounts, but check out the website for info. The whole experience lasts about two hours and is suitable for all ages: in our party there was a lad of about 8 and two women in their 70s, one of whom walked with the aid of two sticks - she flew down the wire with them strapped to her back. You should totally do it!

I got buried in an insane quantity of pine cones for a music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbTRP-xw7uE

I topped the world leader board on an early facebook implementation of snake for over a week before being beaten by a kid from Thailand.

I achieved grand master status in miniclip 8 ball.

Having recently become a member of a FB pun group I can appreciate the use of insane, giving the nature of the video

Ha that is brilliant.

TBF I watched half of it wondering about "Real gone kid" playing in the background - it fitted quite well - then I realised I had spotify going too :D

Haha - this reminded me of the meme that says something like "My mind is like my web browser: 17 tabs are open, 3 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from."

I think I had a couple of world records on some Android racing game shortly after it came out.

I've chatted in person with Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax) and Aron Eisenberg (Quark's nephew Nog -- RIP) from Star Trek: Deep Space 9.

Also, I memorised the longest direction sequence in Super Paper Mario. A combination of 21 Lefts, Rights and Middles IIRC.
Q: What is the longest word in the world?
A: "Gigaparsecs", because there is a gigaparsec before the last S.

Far more cool, to me at least, is having a credit on IMDB
