Best Ride Ops

Saturday, June 2, 2001 6:49 PM
Hey everyone! I was wondering, what is the best experience you had while waiting for a ride or while on the ride waiting to leave. My best experience was the first time on Goldrusher(really the BEST ride ever) at Six Flags Magic Mountain. The ride ops made everyone happy and energetic. They would give you high fives as you started to leave the station and say "Get ready for the best coaster in the west!" They were soooo funny. Last time I went, the same thing. They are the coolest ride ops in the world. Even though it isn't the biggest or best in many peoples opinion, it remains a must ride everytime I go there.

I could have watched the ride operaters operate on Flashback but I didnt.

Out of the parks I have been to I would have to say The Point and SFStL. The worst I have encountered were at SFGL.

The newest joke at SFWoA is if another ride op screws up the other ride op yells, "Guests please don't be afraid, he/she worked on the other side. Also on Double Loop a ride op said this before departing, "Get ready to ride the tallest, fastest, roller coaster, THE DOUBLE LOOP!, you'll be taken up a 50 ft. hill, dropped, go 94 mph, then go through 2, yes 2 amazing loops, then the ride's over, see you back in 35 seconds.

I think the best ride ops are the ones for The Beast and SOB at PKI. They are fast, and if you ask them to stop it at the top, they will (at least on the Beast :) )

Holiday World. Where else do they offer to hold your glasses or hat while you ride?

Without upstops, airtime would have a whole new meaning.

Um about the handslapping thing. At the parks I work at here in Vegas, if we did that we'd be fired on the spot. Thats considered a saftey violation as you can get your or the guests hand dislocated.

I think I have a biased opinion, but it's still mine! I like the ride ops at CP on the Mean Streak! Just ride it about 20 times in the afternoon, almost closing time when there is no one in line, except for about maybe five or so people and sit in front. Yell WOO HAH a lot and they're pretty fun people. Then when they ask you to finish the sentence over the little speakers "And enjoy the rest of your day here at..." "WOO HAH!!!"
2001 Mean Streak Staff, second to none.

I did it like this, I did it like that, I didn it with a wiffle ball bat.. ohhh

I think some of the funniest ride ops are on Power Tower at CP. At Coaster Mania they saw these two girls that were really scared, so when the ride op said clear he followed it with an evil laugh and then they were launched.

CP in 2002, get to the point

The ride ops at Cedar Pt. seem to be pretty cool.
But the absolute worst ride ops are unfortunately
at my home park, SF America. Last season I was waiting in a line and every other word out of the ops mouths was F this and F that ! I was totally embarrassed for the families with small children.
SF America totally has an extremely unprofessional crew working for them !!!
