Some ones wig flew off on Oblivion and my friend caught it by accident. Hands up and it just flew behind. It was an awkward moment when we gave him his wig back.

At Thorpe someone said that because the swarm backwards queue was closed that day they must have turned around the seats so they were all facing forwards.

At thorpe "where is x constipated face no way out". This one was at alton and made me lose faith in the gp, oblivion is not vertical (hooray) it's 180 degrees.

Who knew oblivion was a straight line. Best one at Thorpe the other day "saw is made of plastic, thats why it rattles so much".

The smiler now has a considerably large shaking support on the first airtime hill, (like normal but more, and on Sunday TEN people left the queue because, it was 'plastic, cheap and dangerous' :-k it was shaking more than normal though unless it's meant to shake that much.

Rides must shake, its a physical principle which states they must. This means they are designed to move to ensure damage isnt done to the track. Certain conditions can magnify the shaking, for example certain temperatures, or if the sound of the vibrations was at the resonance frequency of the steel column.

In the queue for Rameses Revenge at Chessington:

PERSON A: This place is rubbish, we should go to Thorpe Park next time.
PERSON B: Yeah, that's where The Smiler is.
PERSON C: Is it?
PERSON B: Yeah
PERSON A: Yeah, they got ride of Oblivion for it.
PERSON C: Really? That's a shame. Oblivion was the best ride at Thorpe Park.

I wanted to correct them, but they got so much wrong I didn't know where to start!

Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Sun Sep 14, 2014 8:32 pm

Exiting Hex:
"Daddy, how did it do that? It defied physics!"

Going through the waterfall on Zufari:
Girl: "Like oh my god mum. We're gonna get soaked!"
Mum: "I know, brace yourself. It'll be a drencher."
*leave the cave*
Girl: "Oh, I forgot we had a roof."
-_-

Whenever people say something along those lines. I will go to rather extreme lengths to prove them wrong. My personal favourite argument it to tell these people that they don't deserve Chessington. It's too good for them! :P

^ Sorry. No offence was ever intended.

I obviously don't literally want to become a terrorist. I just wanted to show how much those comments anger me.

Apologies.

I've removed the original comment due to its extreme nature, but thank you for apologising. We can now return to this topic's usual light-hearted discussion.

Never ever ever tell me Infusion is made by Nemesis's spares, ](*,) it's nowhere near as smooth and lots of GP should be able to tell its track isn't the same, send the person who said that to prison, it is a crime against Nemmy. :evil:

Two from The smiler

1, person sitting behind me when we were in the station said "does this go upside down?"

2, going up lift 2 someone said "I'm praying to the roller coaster god"
