But. I was in Cyprus and I was at a water park and there is a ride called 'Drop to Atlantis' these 2 people said 'look there is no line' so they ran up the steps a went to the top. The funny thing is, is that I don't think they realised you needed a dingy. And that the queue for the dingy's where half an hour what was also funny is that you required 3 people to ride it too. Anyways. It was even funnier at the top of the steps. They where sent back down to the bottom. (Baring in mind that is a long walk. It's about 7 stories high. To go que for the dingy which the queu had then just grown to 45 mins

Haha I went here in cyprus! Was the whole water park themed to ancient greece? And their was an orange boomerang sort of slide called 'Fall of Icarus'!

ME: Shall we go on Inferno next?
MATE: No, it's called Nemesis Inferno. There's a ride at Alton Towers called "Inferno", and this one opened after so they called it "Nemesis Inferno"

WHAT?

This isn't what I overheard but something I thought (I'm not proud of this :no:)

It was my first time at Alton Towers and I was soo excited and couldn't wait any longer

The big steel structures in the car park with the letters on it, well I thought one of those was Oblivion

Sees splash on flume, the woman then looks around and says ," this is a dry ride, isn't it?" Sometimes I think everyone is blind, just watch the ride woman.

Points at towers and says "thats the hotel over there"
Looks at rita "oh thats the ride that goes from 0-100mph in 0.2 seconds" I'm sure nasa will be talking to intamin shortly to see how they have done it.

Today, Dragon's Fury photobooth.
Person arguing with the photos woman, saying it was racist as they where not accepting Scottish money. The photos woman was new, but I joked with her afterwards!

This wasn't something I overheard, it was something I seen on my last visit to Alton Towers. It was at Air restraint's test seat and there was a mum and dad letting their son try the seat out. The kid was trying to get in the seat with the restraint closed and was having great difficulty as you would expect. All 3 of them were looking rather confused! Made me laugh quite a lot! :D

That is just insane. When I heard about the steel tower one I decided to come forward with my embarrassing story. On my first visit to the park I went on sonic. When the ride ops dispatched the car I did the thumbs up back. (They do this when the dispatch rides) They just looked at me and were like what the hell, to be so naive again.

Waiting in the queue for Rita, heard people behind us talking about the Smiler "Yea it broke down earlier and they didn't even test it before people got back on it, they could of died" Then when we got on Rita the ride broke down while we we on it, stuck in the station for about 10 minutes. There's me all calm and the person behind terrified for his life. Some people are clueless.

Not heard, but seen today on park.

There was a few school trips by the looks of things and first guests on Ripsaw were young ones, one of them was queezy and spewed up. The ride finished and they all got off, she told the host she was sick, they checked the seats, nothing. Some poor sod somehow got the whole lot down his back and people noticed when exiting the ride.

And on Rita today back row, some lady lost her upper denture whizzing round :D
