I don't know if there was a topic about this already, but post any stupid comments you'be heard at a park!

I was just waiting in line for Hades when the person behind me mentioned the time at Valleyfair when "Wild Thing got stuck at the top, then all the seat belts came off, and the entire cart flipped over." "It happens all the time."

Speaking of Kingda Ka, does everyone remember how it was broken for a while last season? Well, some 13-year-old kid in line for El Toro had the reason...
Apparently, the rockets that power the trains blew up, so they had to send the trains back to California to get them replaced.

Also on the note of Kingda Ka, the ride operator: "get ready to ride Kingda Ka the one and only tallest and fastest coaster on earth there is no other ride like this in the entire world."


yes, except for Stealth, Zaturn, and oh yeah TTD!

A favorite recurring one of mine whenever I'm telling a kid about TTD or Kingda Ka: "What? You can't go that fast. You'd die!"

While walking through holiday world: "Does the Voyage go upside down?" "No, but the Raven does twice" Later that day in line for Zoombabwe (waterslide) "This one, doesn't go upside down, right?" "No, it does." I had trouble holding in laughter from that one.

When I was a wee little kid, the first time I was at Jeepers (Great Lakes Crossing mall in MI) I asked if Python Pit went "upside down". (Then one or two years later I rode it like 50 times in a row at a friend's birthday party.) For those unfamiliar with it, here's a video of the ride.

"They have brakes on the way up TTD's hill to make it rollback"
Boulder Dash is the only good roller coaster.

Best one I've had so far:
Discussion about Vogelrok in the Efteling if it goes upside down or not:
- Kiddo: No, Vogelrok doesn't go upside down.
- Us: Yes, it does. But only on a tuesday afternoon.

And he actually believed that! [lol]
Coastercount: 1071 (I've seen the world and it's horrid contraptions... @.@)
- Wood: 129
- Steel: 942

Stated in the line for Wild Thing at Valleyfair: "this is a great ride"
Boulder Dash is the only good roller coaster.
