Coaster Traditions

Wednesday, March 21, 2001 1:17 PM
Are there any specific things that you do everytime you ride a certain roller coaster?
Me and my friends like to yell "we're gonna die!" at the top of Shockwave (SFGAm). I bet it really helps Mikin, one of my coaster phobic friends.
On Raging Bull, we keep our hands and feet in the air for the ride--the whole ride. lift hill and breaks included.

On any coaster, I'm always tugging at the restraints to make SURE they are working properly. I also have a tendancy to announce the elements as we approach them. When I'm riding with someone who is a little apprehensive, I'll usually say something like "I sure hope the train doesn't derail like it did yesterday." I know, I'm a jerk. ;)

Is it just me or does Hypersonic look like one of those coasters you would see on Looney Toons?

I do the same thing with the restraints Josh, LOL! I always make sure they are locked down, just to be sure! Peace. :)

I have the habit(probably annoying) of preparing everone around me for the on-ride photo, like "Get ready for the photo!... Here it comes!... There it is!... Smile!!"

I always scream right as I dip out of the station on Iron Wolf at Great America...It scares the peeps in the queue!

Whenever I go through the tunnel on the Sooperdooperlooper, I scream as loud and high-pitched as I can. It's sort of a Hersheypark tradition.

I always bug new riders with all the facts on the coaster, e.g. Did u know the drop on SoB is 214.01ft and that the same guy designed the tallest wooden and steel coasters in the same year, Werner Stengel. He lives in Munich, Germany!I know way to much. NO ONE KNOWS MORE THAN ME! I PROMISE.

No, it was construction problems. Sorry, NOT THE DESIGNERS FAULT. If u actually read the an article it never mentioned anything about Werner Stengel. I know Mr. Stengel personally. Sorry again.

Can't say I have any traditions other than the best one of all: riding all of the coasters over and over again! *Grin*

On the Anaconda at PKD, when leaving the station, I scream my head off on the little drop before the Lift. On most Coasters I scream, "We're All Gonna Die!" And then the Famous "girly" scream must be done! ;P

On Mind Eraser at SFO this season, I brought a newspaper, and my buddy and I read the newspaper as we rode.
