While in the queue line for Galactica at Alton Towers there were a couple of 'bad' teenagers in front of me having a conversation (very loudly) that went like this:
"Alright fam dis iz da ride dat kill'd ppl fam uno M8?"
"Rly fam?"
"Ye M8"
"How?"
"Ya see fam, last week it got n' crashed on the loop M8 and ppl fell out of d' seatbelt thing n' died"
"Wow dats sick fam"
So I said to them "It didn't crash and no one died on it. It just-"
Then I was interrupted by one that said "Yeah it did ya f***ing tw*t! R u an idiot or somethin'? Why dont u read d' news and luk at d' facts before lyin' to me. Ill f***ing murda ya in a fight m8.

While on the Fury 325 brake run, I heard someone say: "Thunder Road's next!" If they're expecting to ride Thunder Road today, they'll be very disappointed.

Just a lift hill evacuation. The article said nothing about Final Destination 3 happening in real life.

Dangling? But the lift is right side up!

Earlier today when I was checking a rider's restraint at Wild Thing...

Rider: Am I gonna die?
Me: No.
Rider: I'll sue you if I die.

The UK press are keeping some bad article writers in business reporting every breakdown with sensationalist headlines.

While playing Pokemon Go at Kentucky Kingdom, one of the Lightning Run Pokestops said 'Lightning Run: Kings Island's newest steel coaster'. There's also a Pokestop for Roadrunner, which isn't there anymore.

There was this very preppy stereotypical white girl in front of me while waiting in line for Gatekeeper. She turned back and said to her friend, "Have you heard this ride goes upside down in loopty loops forty times! That's pretty f*cking dangerous, oh my GOD!"
I was pissed off for the rest of my day at Cedar Point because of that idiotic comment. :evil:

That's a joke right? What complaint could they have possibly given?

They should only be allowed to complain about the coaster being built too far away from them.

I just made a speech for the GP comments on Youtube. Specifically, on this video.


The speech is as follows:
If you are afraid of riding roller coasters because they're dangerous, READ THIS!

I've ridden over 100 roller coasters at 24 different parks. I can assure you those things are not death machines as they are known. Plus, all of these accidents were HUMAN ERROR. If ride operators cared about their job (New Texas Giant and Superman) and the general public weren't so stupid about rides (the man who wiggled out of his restraint and the teen who was decapitated), all of this s**t would never happen at amusement parks.

PS: Space Journey is not a roller coaster. The only reason why it killed park goers is because of improper maintenance, which is ALSO human error.

PPS: The man who held on to the coaster car for dear life was told by a worker to push a cart, which turned out fatal. Again, this is an example of human error.

If you b*tch about these deaths and how parks are "unsafe" because of them, grow. a. mother. f**king. PAIR. I have just wasted fifteen minutes of my life attempting to explain everything to you bastards.

While some are trying to figure out what the hell I just said, I'm all in on riding El Toro for the thirty-fifth time.

(As specified at the end, my Youtube name is "The Lorax." Thought a themed account would be cool.)

Like this one top 10 roller coaster accidents video that showed Griffin blowing up in the thumbnail, and another one that showed a wildfire next to The Beast.
