Excitement Control

Friday, May 24, 2002 11:02 AM
OK. This may sound outrageously stupid but what do you all do to ease the excitement? I'm going to King's Island on Sunday and it'll be the first amusement park I've gone to all year and I'm very excited. What would you all do in my situation? Like with all of the excitement?

I generally don't get too excited until the night before I visit a park. I usually don't get much sleep that night (especially if it's a park I've never been to or one I haven't visited in a while). Knowing this I take some sort of medication to knock me out and give me a good nights sleep since days at amusement parks end up being long and tiring.

redman: Here, I'll start the innuendo.

Take a cold shower and think about baseball or Bea Arthur.

Go watch Attack of the Clones...it'll bore you into as deep coma and when you awake its time to go to the park!

ROFL bigboy...I always use the line from the Steve Martin movie "All Of Me": Think of old nuns or dead kittens.

If you have a corporate homepark, you might be able to watch Attack of the Clones right there on the midway! ;)

My Batman will beat up all of your Batmen and Namtab, it's the original, so it has NO genetic drift from gene splicing, so it's PERFECT! Muhahahahahahahaha... ;)

Anyways, I usually just look at something and compare it to a rollercoaster, which just makes matters worse, because then I start thinking about the park, and time starts going slower, and slower, and slower, because I want to goto the park!

Whats more reliable? Deja Vu, or RCT running without a trapper error?

For me I just do a count down of how many days I have to go till my next park trip which is in two weeks from tomorrow, now if only the wait for RCT2 were that short.

I get excited when I'm in the car or bus or whatever taking me and I see one of the coasters in the distance! ;)

I usually get up a hour early and watch a coaster video so I get really excited to ride. It causes a lot of excitement but once in the park you seem to have twice the energy.

I have to admit I have problems sleeping before I go to a park. On Monday night, I slept only about 1 hour because I was leaving at 5AM in the morning to drive to CP to spend two days there. Keep in mind this happened even though I spent all of last summer working at CP. Even after a whole day in the park, I only slept a couple hours on Tuesday night. Wednesday night, after a second day in the park, and with nothing to do the next day except drive home, I slept like a baby. If someone has a solution that doesn't involve anything dirty, let me know! :)
