Nike Hats Boys

You wanted one but needed some convincing that it wasn't going to hurt

Once a year, the air would be filled with hot air balloons, from the massive Rupert the Bear or the huge Bertie Bassett. The unmistakable sound of the balloon being pumped full of air woke up many a child on a Sunday morning, before they staggered to the window to see what was going on. You were always sure they were going to hit Nike Hats With No Top

A basketball. Photos of JJB in 1990's Southampton are surprsingly hard to come by.

Canute's Pavilion at Ocean Village. Everything you ever wanted.

If you wanted something a bit more hi tech, you could go shoot your mates in the face with a laser gun at Quasar, just a few doors down. It was covered in neon colours and UV lights, bringing that futuristic space station feel to the old docks, Adidas Hat White And Black

The Victorian and Edwardian Penny Arcade at Canute's Pavillion in Ocean Village was a glimpse of the past; you could convert your penny into a souvenir, win mini Dairy Milks or even race minature horses by turning very creaky wheels as vast as your little arms would go. It was essentially Sega Park without the Sega.

The flumes at Centre 2000 in Southampton

There were plenty of places in Southampton to go, but without fail, every single secondary schoolchild arranged to meet their mates outside McDonald's on Above Bar. In the days before texting and mobiles, it was an easy spot and a cheeky cheeseburger in case you didn't have time for breakfast as you didn't wake up until 2pm and had to run for the bus. You may even remember the statue of Ronald McDonald encased in glass. At least you could always get a seat upstairs.

Claire's Accessories in the Marlands was a favourite spot for this. The girls piled in to get someone to shoot a gun through the top part of their ear or belly button, whilst the boys (be they boyfriends or wannabe boyfriends) hung around outside, desperately trying to walk the tightrope of being interested in what the girl was doing and at the same time trying to look cool in front of any mates who happened to be walking by on their way to All:Sports to look at Nike Air Max trainers or something.

When taking the plunge, it was customary to swim down to the windows in Centre 2000 to wave at passers by, as well as flying down the flumes that went outside the building especially the super fast Hydro Whip. If you were really brave (or trying to pretend you were really brave) you could even try and tackle the diving boards.

Ocean Village really did have it all. Victorian games, laser guns, ice cream and even a Bucking Bronco. Way Out West may have been a bar but during the day it was solely the preserve of teenagers who were certain they could do better on the bucking bronco than their mates. It may not have been expensive, but the bar must have made a fortune from all the change that went flying as unassuming patrons realised they probably should have emptied their pockets before they were humiliated by the mechanical bull with an attitude problem and demonic eyes.

12 things almost every teenager in Southampton experienced during the 90s From Daily Echo

Sadly, the centre closed not that long into the decade, leaving the rather more serene options of Bitterne Leisure Centre and Oaklands their more serene flumes didn't quite have the same excitement factor as Centre 2000. If you could get your mum to give you a lift though, you could always venture out to the edge of civilisation to Romsey Rapids.

One Sunday every year, Southampton became a musical mecca if you liked Let Loose or Peter Andre, that is. Power in the Park was massive for a few years. Who can forget the highlights of Boyzone's backing track skipping Nike Hats Boys or Sash! getting to to the stage after his set had finished?

that huge tree over the road, but they somehow never did.

Here are 12 things Southampton teenagers did in the 1990s, but if you have any more, feel free to share them in the comments section below the article and share the nostalgia with other readers.

Admittedly, no one had any intention of ever actually buying anything in there, but the sportier kids were always making use of the free basketball court inside JJB down at WestQuay. While you were waiting to get on the court, you could always look through the vast array of Reebok Classics or the various football shirts before being annoyed that they didn't sell any Saints ones. At least they had a Southampton FC flag that was the same size as your house.

just with more chipboard.

Bright flashing lights, exciting sounds Sega Park was basically a breeding ground for all the short attention spans we're blighted with these days. Yes, you were too young to drive, but why not impress your mates with your amazing powerslides on Daytona USA, show them what a hero you were by taking out all the square robbers on Virtua Cop or show off your dance moves on the thing with the flashing lights on the floor?

Louise Redknapp seemed to be there every year, as did Ocean Colour Scene who once claimed Power in the Park was one of the biggest festivals in the country(!). There was something to be said to hearing the bass from miles away as you headed for the Common, though, as you joined the throng of what was often claimed to be 100,000 people.

After getting a piercing, many decided to hang out beside the cheap earring stall in the middle of the shopping centre, while secretly hoping their new piercing wouldn't get infected like that girl everyone hated at school's belly button did.

a simplier time and hopefully these will jog your memories of easier days!

There wasn't much else in the Bargate Centre, but it was a lot easier than walking all the way to that new Leisure World, which was miles away

You probably remember Quasar being a lot cooler than this.
