5. Don't be the dude who knows way too much about the roller coaster and tries to impress everyone who is miserably waiting in line. "The g-forces on this ride are the equivalent of being fired into space while trying to play an oboe at the same time," he'll say. Really, an oboe? Please be quiet and go back to reading your Fangoria magazine.
14. At some point, pause and survey your surroundings. Yep, these are the people who elect the president of the United States.
31. After you have spent the day at the amusement park, you may be tempted to believe the following five things are trendy and cool: Wristbands, hats turned just a little askew, jerseys, shorts that reveal the lower tier of your behind and hairspray.
OMG, I named my last TR, The Indiana Wristband tour.
In my 15 years, I don't think I have seen an oboe being played. Ever.
I agree. Do not wear other parks' clothes. Do wear sports teams you are proud of. Wear Steelers shirts proudly, and tease Cleveland fans in Ohio, and tease NY and Philly fans at Great Adventure.
If you bring a picnic lunch in with coolers, fine.Take them to the picnic areas. Not to the food court seats, or anywhere else there are seats for 'paying customers'.
If you are from the Indian Ocean area, there is absolutely zero reason for your 85 year old grandmother to push along a oversized stroller with a cooler, thermos jugs, piggly wiggly bags, 3 sets of clothes, and small appliances through the park. Just bumpup the gas price a few more pennies and pay to eat.
I only have to park/coaster shirts and those are only because they both rule and I wear them whenever I get a chance not just to amusement parks. A Powder Keg shirt and a Six Flags St. Louis Shirt that says "its play time" and has Mr. Six on it.
I agree with Charles. Wearing other park shirts, polos or tees, seem to start conversations with other folks in line. That can take care of some of the boredom of waiting in line.
This one should have popped up in that other thread where we were discussing b-balls.
3. By all means, feel free to play the game where you attempt to make an over-inflated basketball into a hoop the size of Nicole Ritchie's waist. But please, whatever you do, don't dribble the ball between your legs or go behind your back before you shoot. Hey Iverson, no one is guarding you and you're going to miss anyway. *** Edited 8/22/2006 7:09:40 PM UTC by Coasterbuzzer***
