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.


OMG I'd almost forgotten...I worked at Body Wars too, and I had literally dozens of guests ask me "Is this a stimulator?"
Wanted to reply, if it is, make sure to come back and let me know!

@ Worlds Of Fun :

GP: this is the tallest coaster in the world(Thats supposibly what the music said)

Me: No!, its ONE of the tallest coasters in the world.

GP: But it says its that fastest.

"Musci repeats itself"(Welcome to MAMBA, one of the tallest, fastest, and longest roller costers in the world. takes you down 205 feet at speeds of up tp 75mph.)

GP: See, it says it the tallest.

I've heard "let's ride the back! it's faster!" a few times at parks. If I'm ever close enough to the person who said it, I just say "Why doesn't it get to the station before the front?" There is normally a pause, and then "oh, right."

One of my favorites was the opening year of Superman at SFOG. FYI - Viper was taken out late in 2001, and then Superman was put in for 2002. So I was standing in line and heard someone say, "where is Viper?" Then the person beside them said "they changed Viper *into* this!" I just didn't know what to say to that.

At Dollywood a few weeks back, a mother and daughter were standing in line behind me for Thunderhead. As the train passed by, the daughter (with an accent that would rival Cletus the Yokel from The Simpsons) says, "Mama, does this one do the loop dee loop?"

I then knew I was in the south.

After hearing that Superman: Ride Of Steel at SFNE was "Boring because it only went upside down once," I decided that the GP were getting out of hand.

First of all, Superman does NOT go "upside down once." It does not have any inversions. The closest thing it has is the overbank. And it is not "boring." Honestly. Post your GP complaints here!

People can't know everything, so don't blame them for not beeing coaster enthusiasts...

You probably would look just as stupid when it comes to something you only know little about.

If he says it's boring because of no inversions, it's his opinion. And he may just consider the overbank upside down, because technically, it is.

The only thing I don't like is when people make up obviously wrong facts to impresse. For example "Have you ridden that 1000ft coaster at Cedar Point?"

Hey, if it weren't for us enthusiasts noticing this, the Gp would be perfectly content with riding one Veklona after another, blissfully unaware of there being anything better out there.

Can I park my donkey here?

I sincerely doubt that a few enthusiasts have influenced park's decisions massively.

^Maybe not, but quality does.

The GP feel pain too! I wouldn't ride a really painful rollercoaster just because its a rollercoaster, I'd just do somthing else. If, infact, they never rode antoher, better coaster, they would probably think they were all bad and not come back to the parks; I'm sure park owners wouldn't want that. They buy B&Ms for reasons.
