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. ------------- Deja Vu - Think you've experienced it before...think again!
X - Xperience the Xtreme - It breaks all the rules!
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 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 LoveToRide, Geek
Two shout-outs for the Beast Crew!!! Yipee!!! Thanks for the recognition!!! We hope to keep up the good work. ------------- "This is just a reminder to all Beast riders that the louder you are the faster the Beast will go!!!"-Beast Crew 2001
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.
Holiday World - Fast and friendly, Busch Gardens Williamsburg - Enthusiastic and Entertaining Lakemont - Give out ACE applications Millenium Force crew - Fast and enthusiastic cheerleaders Tower Of Terror - Great actors, part of the ride
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 !!!
