Sligtly strange topic but has anyone been on park and seen staff on Nemesis where latex gloves?? Seems strange and how come they wear ear plugs on Nemesis and Oblivion but not Air,Rita,13 ect.... Always wanted to know!
All of the rides are checked for this, to make sure that staff aren't damaging their hearing. Obviously some rides have little to no background noise at all, such as The Blade for example. Some rides such as Rita and Sonic Spinball are loud, but because the stations are outside it won't damage the staff's hearing, although hosts and ops are permitted to wear hearing protection if they wish. Pretty much any ride where the station is indoors, however, will require the use of ear plugs. Oblivion as pointed out has the ridiculously loud music, and Nemesis is in like a bunker, which could do a lot of damage to hearing. It's worth pointing out that to work on one of these rides, staff have to attend a medical to make sure that their hearing is sufficient enough, and likewise to operate any ride you have to have sufficient hearing also. Health and safety, all of it.
Sorry for the ramble!
