Have you ever encountered any sort of animal? Such as hitting a deer, runaway rat, that fun stuff.
I've gotten hit by a bug in the hand on RoS!

Yes we saw a deer while riding the Knoebel's train once.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Lots of them on Great Adventure's safari ride.

As for unintended animal encounters, seagulls on just about everything at Cedar Point.

There was some sort of giant bird of prey making a nest on the top of Alpengeist and he would get very angry every time the train would come by and threaten us!

June 2006. The first (public) TPR Tour to the UK. Thorpe Park. Stealth.

We hit a bird, after coming down from the top hat. Feathers everywhere.
Thankfully, nobody got hit in the face with it. Just feathers.

I'd say that counts. :lol:

And I once saw a mama deer and two baby fawns just after the second lift on Loch Ness Monster at BGW, circa 2009. So cute. :lover:

When I rode El Toro . . . in the grass field where Rolling Thunder used to be, I saw a flock of Canada Geese (somehow, I don't think feeding Geese funnel cake would be a good idea)

You can see deer grazing near the tracks of the Busch Gardens railroad all the time.
