Would i get in trouble if...

Thu Nov 01, 2012 3:22 pm

i took a large water pistol onto the River Rapids and sprayed the people who are trying to shoot me with water?

Really use to enjoy this ride, but since those pistols have been there i do not like it as much, it spoils the ride for me, i want to annoy them instead.

I can't imagine them being best pleased (the park or the guests!). They'd probably mention health and safety (in case you spray somebody's eyes or in case the water quality isn't good or something ridiculous like that)

Does it say on the ride rule board that they are banned?

I know, it's worse that people will pay money for it, it just really angers me, and I stank after that part

Probably want the best wording, but where it got me and I wiped it off with my hands, my hands smelt revolting

Haha. I guess it comes out the lake like the rest of the water?

I imagine so, I don't mind so much when it's on a log flume or river rapids splashing me, but the fact that other people can use dirty water and fire it at me, kind of annoys me...

*puts on ride announcer voice.*

"Please remain seated."

That is probably right. Maybe you could sneak it in on the last day of the season who knows?!

A few things, by going on the ride itself you are agreeing to get wet in some form. The option not to ride is available if you don't like it.

The water these guns use I believe is tap fed rather than drawn from the rapids channel, so it's cleaner than the water in the ride itself.

I really wouldn't recommend taking in a water pistol to try and take 'revenge' on people using a device supplied by Alton Towers. Let's be honest if they were free we would all be using them. Look at the ones on Battle Galleons for instance.

tbh its fair game :| If you do this and get kicked out, that's cynical but it could definitely happen if the spirit of fun really isn't present on the day.

My opinion is I REALLY hate getting squirted by those water canons, if I had my own way I would have them ripped out. I too don't like water splashed directly in my face or on my camera if I'm using it. So take the mega super soaker and get them back.

I saw it on Storm Surge once where they were soaking this woman and she was not impressed, then when she got off the rides she went over and emptied a bottle of water over people using the soaker. But what the stupid cow did not realise was that in the time it took her to get off the ride the people on the guns has changed, so she soaked people who didn't even soak her.

So the moral to that story is take the giant water pistol on the boat and squirt the right people!

To be honest rather than taking revenge on a park guest, see if you can spot someone from the management or marketing departments. Give them a good hose down. Should wake them up a bit.  :lol:  :P

Double points if you soak someone from Merlin HQ.



DISCLAIMER: I don't actually advise taking water pistols or super soakers into the park.

I'm glad somebod has pointed this out, I had the same Idea too and I hardly go on the rapids anymore. It's health and safety either way, I wear contacts so if any water goes into my eyes - not a good sign.
