  1. How did they get there? Can I get rid of them? Call a virtual exterminator or something?
  2. Agreed. It's not that I hate the game, nor did I hate those who play it. However, I have grown to hate the game, and those who play it. My place of employment had 4 people outside (before we opened) all on their phones (which I soon came to find out that they were) trying to catch a Pokemon that was in our building. I opened the door (by mistake) when one of them knocked on it. They asked if they could come in to catch a Pokemon. . . When I explained to them I couldn't let them in due to safety reasons, they started trying to push their way past me to get in the building for the game. That's when I officially came to hate the game, and those who play it. #ItsGoneToFar Trust me, you're not alone in the work craziness. I work at a church which, according to the game, acts as a gym and the other building on property acts as a pokestop. There's kids running around from the surrounding neighborhood because there's also tons of Pokemon as well. I've seen parents looking for their kids because they went down to the creek on my church's property that is down a relatively steep hill. It's sad, and I want to say something about getting off the property because who knows who's hiding in the woods, but the parents wouldn't listen because they don't bother to listen and the kids only care about catching Pokemon, so they wouldn't care even if it was for their safety. Why do they keep coming to my duck pond? Is it this gym thingie you guys are talking about? Fortunately I live a little ways out in the country or I'd probably get more of the morons out here scaring my goats,
  3. /\ Darn right BTW how do you make that little arrow thingie?
  4. Not a theme park perse but the Aquarium of the Pacific serves seafood in their cafe and boy after a day of looking at fish I was sure hungry
  5. Increased wait times because the Pokemon are on the ride is an inconvenience. Dagnabit! Your dumb addiction is interfering with my addiction In all seriousness I'm just tired of people trampling my fields and scaring my goats because the damn game says there are Pokemon in my duck pond. My friend the other night woke up to police lights flashing his house at 2am because some kids were looking for Pokemon in people's yards. At least that's what they said. Probably got caught peeping around people's homes and just made it up to keep from getting in trouble, but still.
  6. They built Matterhorn too. He means that one of those 2 coasters was the first Arrow he ever rode. I think you misinterpreted what this thread is about. No I understand. I'm just saying if he rode all three for the first time the same visit then it could be either of the three. Most may people don't know Matterhorn was Arrow. If he didn't do Matterhorn that day then my bad
  7. They built Matterhorn too. And to those listing Giant Dipper, Prior and Church were the designers but Arthur Looff is the builder.

  9. You realize you are posting on a theme park message board, right? That's something in itself that would make the majority of people go "wait, what?" People will do stupid things regardless of whether or not the game existed. In fact, you can argue the game is just helping weed them out at a quicker rate. I don't think I've ever seen anything like this before, but it is kind of cool. Every single area I've seen where people congregate for Pokemon, it's been nothing but people socializing over something they are enjoying. Kudos to all the theme parks striking while the iron is hot and participating in the phenomenon, since it encourages people to visit new places and get out and walk. I visited USH with a friend and took the studio tour...I'd say 3/4 of the tram was playing the game for the opportunity to go in an area they wouldn't normally be able to in order to catch pokemon. There's even a gym on the backlot that I am sure USH employees are constantly fighting over. I'm not against the game itself or having fun. No one is talking about "acting" stupid. Sure we all do stupid things. Pretty sure I made it clear I'm against it controlling people to the extent that they're breaking the law and inconveniencing those around them.
  10. Waterworld was only technically a flop. As number of tickets sold it was a relative hit and was the 9th highest grossing film of 1995. The reason it flopped was not a lack audience but rather was the cost of production due to it being filmed entirely at sea and not a sound stage and an entire set sinking and having to be rebuilt. As far as your "mediocre" movies go each one was popular and made a butt load of money which is why the attractions are successful as well.
  11. It's stupid. Get a life. People are trespassing to get these stupid things. Grow up and do something worthwhile. I absolutely will rain on your parade when it starts to consume you to the point it affects other people. Some people's idea of fun is stupid. There rant over.
  12. I agree with your point on GhostRider. Although I never rode it in its "golden days," I can see how it would feel tamer now. But like you said, being much smoother and less intense is probably best for KBF's demographic. Having literally been on the second train to ever take a manned circuit of GR, I feel can truly attest to its original best, including how awesome it was before the MCBR was installed. I'll give a report when I visit later this year. By the way, when I was last out there in February, I took a walk around the part built in the parking lot. All the re-profiling that I could see appeared very minor. Mainly increasing or decreasing the dip and hill angles ever so slightly. I'm wondering if the design of MF trains (shorter single row cars) required slight changes to track.
  13. There was a similar thread awhile back asking what our favorite theme park food was. Well, this one is different. I'm not asking who has good food or the best food. I want to know who has the best unique food item. Something that you can't find at other parks. It can be something original that the park invented (Mrs. Knott's fried chicken - Knott's Berry Farm) or it can a regional food that only parks in certain areas might have (Rocky Mountain Oysters at traveling carnivals here in Colorado) or it can be a completely unique concept (Blue Bayou - Disneyland)
