It's been 11 years since Geri Halliwell released her second solo album Scream If You Wanna Go Faster.

But it appears the former Spice Girl still has an appetite for speed as she enjoyed a day at a theme park on Thursday.

The 40-year-old singer brought daughter Bluebell, six, to Thorpe Park in Chertsey, Surrey on Thursday.

While the former Popstars: The Rivals judge looked like she was loving the rides, young Bluebell wasn't so sure.

But her doting mother kept a close eye on her daughter and reassured her she was safe as they rode the Flying Fish rollercoaster.

As well as the coaster, the pair and their group also rode the Rumba Rapids water ride and the Quantum magic carpet ride.

Their day out comes nearly two weeks after Geri performed with the Spice Girls at the Olympics Closing Ceremony.

The date of the closing ceremony was
actually quite poignant for the singer, because it was her late father
Laurence Halliwell's birthday.

She told Hello! magazine earlier this week: 'Sadly he died six months before the Spice Girls, when I was 21.
So doing the Olympics on his birthday was so sweet and poignant for me.

'It was a wake-up call, dealing with that pain and loss, then turning it into drive.'

Geri marked her 40th birthday on August 6 during rehearsals and said it was special to be able to spend it with the girls after so long.

On her birthday, she and her former
bandmates Victoria Beckham, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Melanie
Brown were holed up in secret rehearsals for the ceremony.

She
enthused: 'The girls were very sweet and made me feel special. There
was a cake, lovely presents – an elegant, pretty necklace – and singing
of course.

'No matter what's happened in the past, we love and accept each other. I always laugh most when I'm around them.'

And
although she partied until dawn at George Michael's house with Emma,
the Mels and Liam Gallagher after the closing ceremony, she insists she wasn't drinking.

She explained: 'If I'm going to find the balance of being a mum and having a social life, I just can't put a hangover in there.'
