Dreamland Margate: my favourite colourful attractions!

Dreamland Margate is a spinning riot of colour and summer, a vibrant amusement park which had been on my bucket list ever since it re-opened in 2015. Holding close nostalgic trips down memory lane for my mum as a teenager, Dreamland looked even more promising upon its revival. We finally made it to Dreamland back in June, and I was just as enchanted with the premise of a theme park based on a quintessential British funfair as I'd hoped! I thought it would be fun to share my top colourful attractions with you, so read on for my must-see rides and moments in and around Dreamland Margate! ♥︎

Rainbow slides 
First my firm favourite; Born Slippy aka the rainbow slides of H-E-A-V-E-N! I'd seen these colourful gems adorning many insta-worthy moments over on the 'gram and was instantly enraptured. Six lanes of colourful joy to choose from and a rewind to that free-as-a-five-year-old feeling, yes please! 

Cocktails and colourful sights 
There's a spacious area surrounded by cocktail bars, food stalls and candy floss carts; make mine a PiƱa Colada! As we sat down the DJ started playing "Who's That Lady" by The Isley Brothers - my favourite ever band, which seemed like fairground fate seeing as we'd been playing the song in the car as we pulled up alongside Dreamland itself! 

Ice cream dreams 
Unintentionally matching my outfits to ice cream trucks since 1990 (sassy woman emoji) this cute little pink and white truck greeted us upon arrival. If you don't already know I have a big thing for retro ice cream trucks, and am always on the look-out for new gems, so this was a treat to behold! Of course we had to get some style snaps in the mix, would have been rude not to document! 

The big wheel 
Pretty self explanatory, but while I'm here I'll also mention the carousel, dodgems & mirror maze are also all highlights to hit up!

Roller disco 
Sparkly and stunning, the retro Roller Room is made for any disco dream goddess worth her skates! I love the kitsch feel to this place, from the mirrored disco ball lights to the vintage 80s party era vibe.

Peony Vintage 
Easily the prettiest pink shop in Margate, I was probably a bit too thrilled that my pink denim jacket and skirt made such a match against the gorgeous vibrant shopfront! Located in King Street, this retro diamond of a shop reels me in every time! 411 of the outfit; all Missguided and all ready to satisfy my hot pink heart. I'm so into double denim lately, especially when it's as colourful as this combo. The pink basket bag also called my name sassily from the Missguided shelves, for some reason it seemed very 90s Vet Barbie, never a bad thing surely. Turned out to be the perfect outfit to rock for a day out at Dreamland!
