Today at work, Wild Thing was down for about 45 minutes due to a mechanical problem, and we had a guest that was irrationally angry about the downtime. He started shouting out "I could build a better amusement park than this! I'm going to buy up all the farmland in the area and build my own park! Make amusement parks great again!" Keep in mind this was a grown adult saying this. I wish I could say he was joking, but he looked serious. :|

Saturday I was at Walibi Holland walking near Lost Gravity and I heard a guy say: "I'ts just kind of like Python!"

So for everyone who don't know these coasters, this is Python:

And this is Lost Gravity:

Some kid in line for Raptor asked a ride op if it went upside down. The op just facepalmed.

No it does not. Every ride cycle the track rotates itself corresponding to the layout so the train is always right side up but also being moved around the track.

I usually hear these the most:

"Does it go upside down"(referring to a ride like American Eagle)

OR

" I hope the ride doesn't stop/breakdown during the loop"( Any person in the general public that has a basic understanding of physics would realize this is wrong for 99% of all coasters)

He lost all credibility as soon as he started talking about the 4D rides.

I'm not even bothered on watching that video as the preview already contains images of a copycat. xD

Yesterday at Phantasialand a famliy was sitting next to me and they said that they should go to Hollywood Tour next because they said it was a really awesome ride where you sit in a car. I guess that's the first time I've heard anyone so genuinely excited for that ride.
