At pleasure beach last year. We were queueing for Big Dipper. An old lady thought they were queueing for infusion. Then one of them said they had no idea what ride they were queueing for. A TV screen in the queue advertised the walk the big one experience. They thought you literally walked on the track the ride. They annoyed me so much I had to tell them it's just the lift you walk. ](*,)
Erm, change of plan, I prefer The Smiler. Rita's rubbish. Should have thought of that...

Scarefest 2016 hype is all gone... all because of Stan.H.

In the queue for air today near the station where the sign reads 'front row queue 60 mins from here' some kid asked his dad what this meant and he said these exact words 'that's the amount of time it takes to get around the track'

Facepalm.

I was at the gates in air and there were 2 girls too, about 13/14 yrs old. Someone lost something on the ride so they halted operation and started searching for the item. Anyway they then test the cars before letting anyone else and I think you may be able to guess what the girls were saying...

"OMG were gonna die! What's wrong with it? I don't wanna go on it now in case we get killed!"

Yea it basically goes on like that. I was so annoyed

So a lovely employee of Alton towers offered to hold my stuff whilst I went on a ride and I came back to 14 of these..

The amount of people asking why Nemesis is now called Neme21s made me laugh this year. Not because of them not knowing but its just funny hearing people say Neme21s :lol

Lol I always say the number when they do that, like with sesevenen and ththirteenteen :P mainly because it drives me a mad when they do. Saying that though I do like the way they make the 13 look like an R....

Anyway was on park yesterday with a friend and he did the similar thing in such a needlessly aggressive way. "Why did they put the 21 on nemesis it's so stupid" I advised him it was because she's now 21 and he seemed relatively pacified.

At the fireworks yesterday there were some girls behind me and they said when the 'mini enterprise' lit up, they shouted out "Oh My God!! It's the smiler!!" and I was just like, errrr no, just no. Some of the people next to me also where saying that the wheel was a 'ferris wheel that the park decided not to use!!'. But c'mon, I mean wow, what are some people like!?!

Made a lot of people chuckle.

I always overhear someone on the monorail saying "Oblivion is here" or something along those lines, as you go past somewhere on the opposite side of the park. ](*,)

I always hear people see 'The Hypnotiser' or one of them on the marmaliser and presume that the ride will be renamed to that. I'm sure I've heard it at least 3 times now.

The other day on park, (walking over to Air) "Oh, let's go on Nemesis, oh wait, the queues to long" (then heading over to Nemesis) "Yeah, let's do Blade instead"

Facepalm :P

I was in the queue for CATCF the over day, and there was a a family of scottish people looking at the map deciding what to go on next, a she said, "oh, lets do cosmic snowball" meaning sonic spinball!! Bless, I told them it was called Sonic Spinball and it isn't worth the queue, so I told them to do Th13teen!! I saw them later in the day and they thanked me and they loved it!!


Is this real? you dictated which ride people should go on?

From the context in which it was written, it seems he was merely suggesting it. Judging by the positive reaction he describes, it didn't seem to have any negative affect to them whatsoever. :D

The people seemed very puzzled and didn't seem to know what they where doing, they were even surprise on CATCF as they though it was an indoor coaster. So, I suggested Th13teen to them as earlier on in the queue they were saying they wanted to do all the big rides as well! So, I wasn't dictating what they were doing, I just suggested.

Girl 4: We shouldn't go on this 10 people died on it!
Girls 1 and 2: *screams*

I can usually think of explanations for the things people say that are posted in this topic, but this one baffles me :lol
