Diary: Day Out At ... The Millennium Dome - Colin Grimshaw checks out the monstrous blancmange

10.30am Combining the launch of The Sunday Telegraph’s travel section with a visit to the Millennium Dome ensures an unusually large turnout of hacks.

Led by Telegraph boss Jeremy Deedes, we set off to find the Body

Zone.



But Jeremy is distracted by the Tunnel of Love and we find ourselves in

Living Island - a kitsch end-of-pier seaside pastiche. It’s very

realistic - all the arcade games are out of order.



11.30am The pubic lice in the Body Zone cause a stir among a party of

OAPs. The place stinks of cat pee and I exit wondering what all the fuss

was about.



Noon The replaying on a giant screen of Teddy Sheringham’s opening goal

in last year’s Cup Final provides a welcome relief from the tedium of

the Mind Zone. Even Philippe Starck would find this minimalism

extreme.



12.30pm The space capsule ride in Home Planet is the best experience of

the day. We’re exposed to volcanoes and inter-galactic storms. It could

be Disneyland.



1.30pm As I leave I’m urged to consider such profundities as ’Will life

get better?’ and ’Are humans getting more intelligent?’ I suddenly feel

the need to regurgitate my jacket-potato lunch.
