Busch Tampa flier sends callers to sex phone

Posted Tuesday, March 16, 2004 7:46 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Some Busch Gardens patrons got more than they bargained for this weekend when they called what they thought was the park's toll-free number and heard a recording for an X-rated service. The Tampa theme park inadvertently listed the wrong number in a marketing flier mailed to some former holders of its discount Fun Card last week.

I wonder is someone got fired over this. Lesson to everyone, make sure people proof read your work before making it pubic...er...I mean public.

Hi all,

>I wonder is someone got fired over this

Nope, management were probably satisified with giving the guilty employee a good seeing to.....er, I mean a good talking to!

You know, I've never seen the appeal of those kind of phone services. I mean, when you're hungry, you don't pop into KFC and ask them to read you the menu do you? :-)

Cue 'emotional/mental trauma' lawsuit in 3...2...

So what was the number they published then? ;) It's not for me, it's for a friend - honest...

I wonder if Ed Markey will be investigating excessive G-Forces in Tampa Bay anytime soon. ;-)

Tyler Durden would be proud, yet another fine example of project mayhem in action this week.

TTDTom with a priceless reference. Markey was "on top" of things in Florida BTW.

Methinks someone had both numbers written down, and got them mixed up while smoking a *loosey* after dialing the phone sex line...all those 800 numbers look alike after a while...;)

Well after visiting the park, the park needs all the help they can get and if they have to resort to sending people to a "sex hotline," then so be it -- as the park itself is sure not going to bring in the people. Man with the exception of Montu that park was a real disappointment.

I wonder if Comedy Central's "Daily Show" will poke fun at this. :-)*** This post was edited by Dane186 3/17/2004 2:49:59 PM ***
