One of my favourites, while standing in line for the Great Movie Ride at Disney-MGM Studios - "Is this a ride?"

No, they just call it the Great Movie RIDE in the hopes that people will come in and walk through.


Is that a giant golf ball?

In line for Viper: "Does this Roller Coaster go upside-down?"
Exiting Xcelerator: "Xcelerator was fun, especially the part where you go upside-down"

People call X, "Xtreme: the ride" all the time at my school.

At PKD last week, there was a mom and her daughter in front of me in the line for Volcano, and while they were watching the trains go along the track, they kept asking me, "Does this ride go fast? Does it go upside-down?" Mind you, they were watching the train go through a CORKSCREW when they asked...

Those inverted coasters seem to confuse the average human being. :)

that one is always a classic. :roll:

Actually, that is not at all a stupid question. The implied meaning is "When does the 3 o'clock parade get here?" Depending on where you are standing, the 3 o'clock parade may start as late as 3:30.

While waiting for the rope to drop at Great Adventure this year these group of 30ish people where like "I want to get wet first...let's run to Adventure Rivers!"(they were taken out after 1998). I'm sure they were confused when they ran and the slides were not there.

Also while inline for DT at Cedar Point a few years ago this girl said "I hate coasters that why I like haunted houses and rides like this" I bet she was suprised.

I mean it's not their fault we are crazy coaster freaks but it's still funny

Something else but not about rollercoasters. These girls at Cedar Point asked where I was from so I said "Delaware". The one girl (maybe 21) said "Oh in PA?"...I said "No the state Delaware" and she turned to her friend and was like "God he could have just said he didn't wanna tell us where he was from instead of making up a State"...I ALMOST DIED LAUGHING!

At WDW's Magic Kingdom:
GP-"This park must've opened in 1955 if it's 50 years old now."
Cap'an Jack-"Disneyland's 50 years old, this park is only 34 years old."
GP-"No it's not."

GP-"Tokyo Disneyland doesn't have the same castle as us!"
The Captain-"It's slightly smaller but otherwise nearly identical."
GP-"No it's not, The Disney Company wouldn't copy castles."
Cap't-...walks away...

GP-"Pirates of the Caribbean sucked, where was Johnny Depp?"
Cap'an Jack-"It's a classic ride made in 1972, the movie was made in 2003, and the ride inspired the movie."
GP-"So where's Johnny Depp?"

GP-"That mine train over there must be Splash Mountain"
Cap'an Jack-...rolls eyes...

GP-"Where's Mr. Toad?"

GP-"This is Disney's first park, Disney World."

GP (in front of Mission Space)-"There's Space Mountain!"

GP (on Soarin')-"We just flew over Disney World Park!"

AT WDW's Animal Kingdom:
CM (on Kilamanjaro Safari)-"This is a two week safari..."
GP-"Is she serious?"

GP-"All the animals are robots."

At Six Flags Great Adventure:
GP-"Look at Kingda Ka's corkscrew!"

GP-"Nitro's tallest."

GP-"Where's Mickey!?!?!?"

GP-"How do they get you to the top of Kingda Ka?"

IN CONCLUSION-The GP seems to think they know what they are talking about...and I'm not afraid to correct them and obviously they're not afraid to "incorrect" me.

Well when working a few weeks at SFGAm (by the way I quit after the third week) there was a person that went Viper and she pushed down her lap bar and there was a half of an inch of space and it wouldnt go tight. Then she started to freak out and she told me that if she flew out that she was going to sew. I was like "ok" then I walked away. When she came back in the station, I was like "so, how was your ride" and she replied, "F**k off".

^^^ even the alligators at Fort Wilderness.

I've tipped off a few DL guest relations cast members so they are waiting for someone to ask where the "Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Fruit" ride is.

(overheard in queue for Rock n' Roller Coaster) "Wow, Aerosmith is actually here?!"

for the longest time it was hard to convince people that the fastest ride in WDW was the Monorail. that was before Test Track opened, which might be faster I think.
