On the skyride when I went in the holidays, there was some woman sitting next to me looking at the map & she said, "What's 'The Towers?"… ](*,)

Was at the park yesterday and heard someone in the Nemesis sub-terra que say : Is this the replacement for the black hole. 
Also on the monorail a woman saying as we went past Nemesis: oh nemesis is that new roller coaster for this year.
Hmmm

When I was in the pre-lift batch area for sub-terra there was this guy on the other side of the room in fits of laughter for some reason. The room went silent and he burst out with "it looks like a transforming vagina"...presumably regarding the phalanx logo.

Some people have trouble pronouncing Nemesis (I did too when I was a bit younger aswell) :D
"Nemenis", "Nemesin"

Queueing for Oblivion on a busy summer day, and one Chav asks another a question, this is how the conversation went.

CHAV 1: 'So what does this ride actually do?'

CHAV 2: 'Well you go up a massive hill, and then you go down.'
