P. 611: Full Halloween Horror Nights 2021 lineup revealed!

Recommended Posts

That's what I was afraid of...are they free? I doubt it

They're free for the first hour, then I believe it's $3.00 for every 30 minutes past that.

 

It is a little more complex than just free for an hour. The length of time they are free is based on the line length for where it is located. If the ride has a short line then the locker will be free for an hour. If the line is 2 hours long it will be free for 3+ hours.

I HATE this locker rule! At any park. They did it when we were about to enter Sheikra at Busch Gardens. I'm going to sound nuts saying this but get this. You are really really really itchy to ride some coasters,but oops! the guy who stands at the ques say "nope you need to put that stuff in a locker!" so you have to find said lockers,and find to see them crowded. You then have to wait for it to clear out so you can get into one. It gets worse! You and everyone with you has no change and the dollar-to-change machine either has a long line or isnt even working at all. So you go around the park asking random people for change. No guests have any so you have to go into a store and ask the person working there. Finally you get the change and go to the locker hoping its not congested again. Then you have to shove all your stuff in those tiny tiny lockers. You could leave all your stuff at your car but when you need it you will have to walk to the parking lot each time! By the time you get back to the coaster its like 30 or so people lined up already....It makes me go crazy as the coasters are there yet so far away...Its like a drug addict looking right at his stash but being told not to smoke it yet...Its also why I hate when the people I'm with take 5 minutes to pee! I havent had the balls yet to tell my friend off for taking so long i just drop hints like "I was outside waiting for you and I thought you actually left me" I'd drop subtle hints each time she is taking 'till Christmas but never gets the hint. Might be blunt next time ok rant over!

Watches, jewelry, necklaces?

 

The smart thing to do would be to not wear any of those to the park.

 

I don't recall ever seeing anyone asked to take off jewelry, but it would just be better to leave it in the 1ocker.

^what? All because I'm a little impatient? Besides that I LOVE to have fun. Its not like im a compete sick in the mud....Yea my idea of fun may not be going to the clubs or going to some house party to smoke pot but I still like to do stuff that many other people will enjoy. Like amusement parks,carnivals,the beach,waterparks,arcades,the mall,site seeing,doing tourist attractions,exploring the city,going out to eat, drinking one in a while,going camping,traveling,etc. Its just at an amusement park you only have so much time in a day...heck in a weekend! The less time we waste the more time we have to do fun things. You are loosing precious time when you have to hunt down people for change or making sure all the wrinkles in your shirt are invisible, as much as possible ,after you had to "mess up your clothes" when you had to use the toilet. See where Im going here?

Hey guys, sorry to interrupt the jimmy fallon talk, but I'm headed to the parks tomorrow and I've heard some pretty bad things about the metal detectors for rides. I usually just put my phone and wallet in my button pocket, do they let you do this, or do you have to use some sort of system for storing them?

 

Thanks for anything you can help me with!

They are pretty hard core about it too, and the walk through detectors seem to be hit or miss. I rode Dragon Challenge several times back to back. I had everything in a locker, but my belt buckle would set off the detector....sometimes. Then other times it wouldn't. Each time it did, I had to get hand-wanded. So annoying. And side note, nothing really jars you out of the theming of a ride like having to go through a metal detector and/or getting wanded.

 

Speaking to how hard core they are about it, I forgot that I had chapstick in my pocket at one point when getting on Rip, Ride, Rockit. It didn't set off the detector, but the guy saw it poking through my pocket (I know I know I missed a great opportunity for a "that's not chapstick" joke) and made me go back out of line and put it in a locker. I mean really, CHAPSTICK?

I have a recommendation to make the whole FFBFWMAG process easier for guests: Put all of your stuff in a fanny pack so you only have one thing to put into/take out of the FFBFWMAG.

 

I do feel that it is overkill to have metal detectors at every major coaster especially since there are metal detectors at the entrances to CityWalk. Do the other Florida parks have metal detectors at the entrances of queue lines?

No, because it's asinine.

Rule of thumb: love the park, hate the system.

Agree with you 110%! Hulk is still my #2 overall coaster while Dragon Challenge and Mummy sit not far outside my top 10

Naaah, I'll go ahead and hate the park. No one's forcing them to use that system.

^If you hate the park because of the system why did you call me out for not liking the whole fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo idea?? I really dont get what I said was wrong but yet others can complain about stuff? wait what....am I missing something here

 

Lol the lockers isn't what they are all talking about

We're laughing because of how much you're overreacting to it and because you're acting as if finding change is the most difficult hardship you'll ever be faced with (even though the lockers are free at Universal), not the fact that you don't like it. I'm also stuck on the fact that you're trying to work up the balls to tell your friend that they need to piss faster and stop wasting time in the bathroom while at theme parks.

 

Calm down, a little patience never hurt anyone. Oh, and we're also laughing at this entire post...

I didn't call you out because of your disdain for the bunnies and medicine (though I think you extrapolated things out to reach a farfetched, ridiculous conclusion), I quoted you because I could never possibly imagine being enough of an insufferable prick to remotely consider giving my friends a hard time for spending more than five minutes in the bathroom.

 

At the end of the day, you're not going to find anyone who I think actually likes having to use the locker, but you have to recognize it for what it is: a minor inconvenience, not the end times.

^^Well I rather ride rides then find change...also i was talking about the lockers at other parks that make you pay. To me change hunting and just like lolly gagging in the bathroom are both a waste of time. It's just my opinion that is all. I rather have fun riding ride then wasting time on stupid stuff!

 

Also that second response was asking him I wouldnt be fun to hang out with even though I enjoy doing fun things!

I'm going to give Mr. storm555 the benefit of the doubt. Actually, I'm not, but I'm going to use his nonsense for the anecdote of a time i was at an amusement park with a friend who kept needing to go to the bathroom. He was in there for like 10-20 minutes at a time and eventually I had to ditch them. Years later it came out that he had been doing ecstasy for the first time and was mixed with booze and some other stuff and was tripping extremely hard and couldn't deal with the visual stimuli. What I'm getting at is that maybe storm's friends are doing a ton of drugs. Think about it.

Its possible! This is a true story: @ GreatAdv on a super dead night a few years ago a friend of mine (who years and years ago had dealt with some substance abuse issues) kept using every bathroom we passed. It was kinda driving me nuts. I asked him if he had a urinary tract infection or was getting ill or something. Nada. Then I started to notice how insane he seemed everytime we hit the brakes during a Bull marathon we were having. Totally amped beyond belief. And then I noticed the nose rubbing. I pressed him and he denied up and down he was snorting anything but then weeks later he admitted he had a coke relapse and was getting blasted and riding coasters. Who does that? I still laugh about it. I love my friends.
