While in the queue for Rita on Tuesday two 'nerdy type' boys where stood behind me discussing the ride and one was saying how it went 126mph and it's faster than Stealth. They also said it was strange that Stealth was slower since it opened later than Rita.
They don't have to get faster as time progresses and faster does not necessarily mean better!!! Also, where did they get 126mph from!?!
That would be the speed of Kingda ka. Imagine that Rita with the stats of kingda ka
Which reminds me of my most painful overheard comment in a queue ever was in SFGAv, whilst waiting for El Torro, between a father and Son (who where right behind me):
Son: how does the train stay on the tracks?
Father: the trains are very heavy, and their weight keeps them on the tracks.
In my mind just flooded with; Up-stops! Up-stops! Up-stops! Up-stops! Up-stops! Up-stops! Up-stops! Up-stops! Up-stops! Up-stops!, my head nearly exploded.
I proceeded to passive aggressively explain up-stops to my uncle (who I was queuing with) within earshot of the farther and son.
