Full Throttle ride ops are amazing.

My favorite lines were:

"If you're happy and you know it clap your hands"
>Launch while people are clapping.

"Do we have any first time riders"
>Launches when people raise hands
"Not anymore"
Some memes are meant to be kept

When I was working at Wild Thing earlier tonight, my fellow ride op working at controls pulled this joke on the last train of the night:

-Train pulls into station with riders chanting "one more time!"
-Ride Op: You guys wanna ride one more time?
-Riders: Yeah!!
-Ride Op: Okay, come back tomorrow, park opens at ten!
-Riders: Awww

:lmao:

Personal favorite was at WT at Cedar Point

OPs: "Get ready to launch in THREE, TWO, ONE! ... wait something's broke-
*LAUNCH*

That got a surprised yelp out of me, and I was laughing the rest of the ride.
it is I, your average at best hand builder, Chase

Some fatasses in "Don't Tread on Me" shirts were waiting in line for the front, and whenever people got on the train as it was dispatching they'd say "IS THAT BOLT SUPPOSED TO BE LOOSE LIKE THAT?!" really loud to freak them out, which got really annoying after a couple cycles because many people take that seriously. So when they boarded I stood behind their row and gave the harness unlock hand signal for their row, and after their harnesses popped up I looked at them all puzzled and pushed them back down again. I repeated this twice and the last time I said "they haven't done that ever. Oh well". Then we cleared the train and sent it on it's way while the fatties looked absolutely terrified.


If this was on Gemini, I was there sometime within the first few days of August and this happened to the people right in front of me (they were also in the front row)... I might have seen you there!

I work as ride operator on Mind Scrambler and Balloon Race at Six Flags New England. I don't really have a special spiel for Balloon Race, but here's the one's I came up with for Mind Scrambler.

1. "All Clear, Enjoy your ride. Be careful, you might get scrambled."
2. "All Clear, Enjoy your ride. Prepare to be scrambled in 3..2..1!"
3. "Welcome back riders. How was your ride? Uh oh, you just got scrambled!"

I used to have a spiel for Balloon Race, but it got boring really fast.

"All Clear, Enjoy your ride. Let the Balloon Race begin!"
After the ride ended, I would announce the color and number of balloon as the winner. I'm glad I don't use this spiel anymore.

What do you guys think? Does anyone have one that I could use?
