If you want to have some fun after going on the ride a few times, i like to fool around with the ride photo... first i tried acting like im sleeping, this is funny especially when it has like 10 inverted loops on a 4 G ride..also help if you can sneak in a small pillow... heh, makes people that see it just wonder.....also you can bring a magazing and just sit there and read it... like the verticle 80 Mph drop followed by a dive loop and a triple corkscrew and is boring.... next... you can bring some pretzels or popcorn and sit and eat as if your in a movie theatre...all of these are fun when your by the photo booth and everyone see's it! you got any ideas? post them up here! PS.dont get kicked out of the park because of these. please!
S:ROS, four of us each wrote a word of a four word phrase (name of our conservatory - 4 words) on our chests , took off our shirts on the lift, and quickly re-clothed on the brake run. :) It wasn't offensive or anything, so no trouble. Made a great pic to pass around the joint here. Took 5 tries to get it perfect. Thankfully it was a walk-on.

If done correctly, an I'm falling out of the coaster pose can be real funny. It doesn't require much more than a little lean, and making a good wing span with the arms, and is by no mean dangerous. I've also heard of showing the bottom of your shoe to the camara, but I have never attempted this one.
I was with a group of friends at SFGAm and one of them didn't want to go on Raging Bull so we waited by the photos to see when we were getting off. I decided to get my two other friends to hide from the camera so we all put our heads down and the hoods up on our jacket. When we met up with him he said."Wait you guys aren't in any of the pictures." We then showed him and we got a good laugh out of it.
On Dinosaur at Animal King I like to stare right at the dinosaur and yawn and every else looks scared or is turned the other way.
------------------ All who think Mean Streak needs a match taken to it say I.
On RB at SFGAm I have made so many poses,usally when I ride I pretent to fall asleep in those comfy seats,or me and my friends get in really werid poses(that souned bad) Its great fun. On JPRA at IOA I do that same thing that coasterphil dose on Dinosaur at DAK I wawn. Then SOme time I pretend like I am really scared.
Well my favorite, ehich ive done numerous times and will be doing when i return to PKI on the 19th, take a mask like the one in Scream, those movies you know, and where it on the coaster then take it back off bbefore the station and everyone looking gets a good laugh its great. So if u see an on-ride photo with a person doing this, its proly me>>> ------------------ Beast-Crew 04' RCT2 Wizard: TheBeastMaster
Once my friends and were at Kennywood and were ridding the Log Jammer. When the on-ride photo section came up, we all did poses like we were in a rock band. The person in the front was playing the drums, the second was playing the guitar, the third the keyboard, and I was acting like I was singing. The picture came out awesome.
------------------ My mind works in strange ways. Yeah with a chain driven lift hill and gravity.
My alltime favorite is the hands up and screeming your head off. But there ws one time on Millenium Force I ran right through a huge group of may flies. At 93 mph they hurt. They felt like 3 times what a bee sting would be. I can't wait to ride TOP THRILL DRAGSTER THROUGH some may flies.
TOP THRILL DRAGSTER I await your coming seee you on may 4

i can't do this, but a couple of my friends like to make "zombie faces" they are able to sink their eyes way back into their sockets, and drop their jaws low. they really look like zombies.
One of the persona favorites that i've done was unintentionaly on RB. I had the lap bar quite loose on me, and when the train hit the area by the camera, the forces made me "bow down". it looked like i was worshiping the coaster.

I'm a fan of subtlety, and I really enjoy making the onride photo look as if my riding partner and I are engrossed in a deep, philisophical conversation. Usually, I will have a stern expression on my face, open my mouth as if speaking, and have an index finger pointed in the air as if making an extremely valid point, while my friend will raise a thoughtful eyebrow and stroke his chin in agreement. The contrast of our pose along with the typical ones of the other screaming riders usually makes for a pretty hilarious photo.

I personally think the emotions caused by the ride can look much funnier than acting or pretending. One time Magnum pulled down my pants to my knees (what an onride that was, now why the hell didn't we buy it) and this one of me on Hypersonic... you can't fake that!
I had a girlfriend of many years who didn't like coasters at all, but knew how much I did (and was okay with it). We had recently moved apart and were no longer going out, but for Christmas she got me a framed picture of us together. So, I figured I should try to get her a picture of me, and came up with the stunning idea of a nice photo on X.
She used to do the Jr. Birdman pose all the time to try to make me laugh. For those that aren't familiar, and it can be kinda hard to describe, take your two hands and make the "ok" sign with 'em. Touch your index finger to your thumb to make a ring, then stick out the other three fingers in a kinda fan shape. Then, put your fingers against your cheeks and twist your wrists around so that the ring your thumb and index finger makes goes over your eyes. Lemme see if I can find a pic: http://www-vms.uoregon.edu/~gmorgan/BIRDMAN.GIF (though usually a little bit more symmetrical).
At any rate, I knew she'd get a kick out of it, so I thought I'd give it a shot. The X ride photos are taken at the bottom of the drop after the first raven turn, and the coaster is moving pretty dadburned fast. I also tend to black out a bit on the first raven, so I had to get myself all setup coming down that second drop. Everything was going fine until just beore the cameras. The combination of the G Forces and the fact that I had to lean my head forward a bit due to the restraints being a bit tight (couldn't get my arms up all the way) meant that my head was so far down it was hard to see what was happening. Then, a nice little bump hit, so eventially I ended up with the middle finger of my right hand jabbing the inside of my cheek (thankfully I didn't bite it off) and the index finger of my left hand firmly implanted in my left eyeball, jamming my contact lens completely around the inside of my eyeball and getting it stuck on the inside of my eye. I got to spend the rest of the ride making the faces one makes when trying to use your own eyeball to retrieve a lost contact.
I kinda wish I had bought the photo now, because I don't think I've ever seen any facial expression go that horribly awry. It looked to me like what might happen if my hands got possessed like Ash's in Evil Dead 2 and just started attacking my face. If only my head hadn't been tilted so far down, it would be my profile picture ;) *** This post was edited by Tom Servo 4/8/2003 12:01:42 PM ***
Here's a couple of poses accomplished by Green/wood enterprises:
1) The Thinker: Fist on cheek, bored expression, usually a classic on Mean Streak. 2) Sleepy: My buddy acted like he was asleep on the Beast last year with me giving the "you're drunk" signal from Planes, Trains, Autos fame. 3) Strangle your partner 4) Upset with your partner (arms folded, looking away from each other) 5) Sleeping, bored looks are usually gaining a laugh in the booth. 6) Antuan, I'm still in tears, good move man.
