Worst thing you've ever accidently done at a park.

This is gonna stem from a personal experience from today.

I nearly set off a Fire Alarm in Hex.

We were near the front in the preshow area and I was leaning against the wall. I decided to kinda slap the stone wall because we were waiting. That was fine, hand made contact with the wall. Second time, hand made contact with a fire alarm. I heard the plastic cover lift and subsequently fall back down and I can honestly tell you I have never panicked more at Alton. Thank the Earls for plastic covers otherwise I'd be in deep trouble.

So, what have you ever accidently done at a park that made you kind of go 'oh nooo, that's not good
'? (No, I cannot find a better way to word that)

I may have inadvertently caused a ride shut down. I'm unsure, but I raised my restraint at the end of the ride, there was a loud bang, the ride then shut down for an hour.

Not saying which one. :sus:

Similar experiance, not at a park, but at IKEA. I didnt step off the escalator in time, clipped the end, big bang, escalator suddenly stopped, I nearly fell on my face.

Again, not a park but when my grandad picked me up from nursery many years ago he set off the fire alarm, causing the entire primary school to have to evacuate.

Sit down on Blue Tornado. Well, wasn’t really a mistake since I needed the credit at the time...

Similar to the above but I got on Time Warp at Canada's Wonderland which is a horrible Zamperla Volare and one of the worst coasters I've ridden.  But had to get the cred! :D
