She is quite embrassed about it since she is a coaster lover just like myself...
This confession of hers got me thinking, What are some embarrasing things that you (or others) have done at parks that would be tough to admit...
Planned Parks for this summer: CP, SFWoA, SFGAm, SFKK, PKI, MA, SFStL, HP, KW, SFMM, KBF. Is 11 enough?

Hey, look, I have a signature now! Even if it is only Yatta...
I was waiting to go on Chessington World of Adventure's Samurai, a very fun spin and spew, and there was this big hold up.
We saw them hosing one of the seats down, when we eventually got to the front we asked the ride op if someone had thrown up. NO was the answer, they had soiled themselves. Nice. They closed the whole row of 5 seats for a while as no-one wanted to sit on or near the seat, funny that!!
Ok, this was hilarious. At SFMM last year, a guy not unlike me (except he had a shaved head) got out of Viper as we waited for my cuzin to get out as well. Well he seemed very happy and proceeded to try and jump over a trashcan. He didn't have much luck and ate it as well as knocking over the unexpecting trashcan.
Is it a dream or a memory? It's both, it's X
well, not afraid to admit it, because my supervisor's saw it, but I was hopping over a fence to get some trash, and I slipped, and landed face first in the grass. And I had to deal with huge grass stains the rest of the day, with guests asking, how did that happen? answer, me being stupid.
I HATE SNOW!!! I am boycotting snow, I refuse to have fun in it.
As a kid, I heaved ASAP after a ride on Teacups...(older brothers are the coolest thing). Haven't really been a big fan of most horizontally-spinning rides since...
More recently, last Winter a friend and I got continuous rides on Montu. I was having the time of my life, after 4-5 circuits poor Paul puked potion profusely...actually frozen lemonade...(the good news is he kept going after about an hour of walking, whilst I made the trip for some free beer...;)
It must be March, the Madness is setting in (taking vacation time to watch NCAAs instead of coasting)!
We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams...
LOL!! I'm laughing out loud as I type this. Ok me and a friend went on the Jet Stream (now Splanshdown I think) at SFMM. Now I'm 6'2" and my friend is shorter. So the ride-op wouldn't let him sit in the back of the jet and me in the front of the jet.
So my friend starts b******g about how he doesn't want to sit in between my legs he was like "I wouldn't feel right" so I said whatever I'll sit in between your legs. Now to remind you I'm 6'2'' and squezze into the jet and my legs are pushed all the way into the front of the jet, and I was im a postion where it was like I was doing a sit up.
The ride was horrible. Anyone who has rode Jet Stream knows what I'm talking about when I say its bumpy. My kness bumped against the inside of the jet everytime we hit the side of the track, and anyone who has ridden that ride knows that it hits the side of the track a lot. It felt like sand paper was been rubbed up against my knees. It hurt so bad. I was screaming and everytime we passed by another jet the people looked at me like what the hell. That was embarassing. But the worst was yet to come!
When the ride was over my friend got out, and when it was time for me to get out, I couldn't!!!! My legs were stuck. Two ride attendents came over to help me and they started laughing at me instead of helping. Everyone waiting in line started laughing. My friend started laughing and took a picture of the whole mess!! As the jet went around the station I still couldn't get out. Just when I was about to go again a finally got out.
Anyone who's rode Jet Stream knows when your leaving the ride you gotta walk next to the line of people waiting to get in. They all pointed and laughed at me and the ride-ops were laughing hard. I was so embarassed and I had a huge bruise and cut on my right knee. I wasn't laughing at the time but know its so funny to me LOL!
Once at SFFMM, we had to hop a puddle of vomit on the exit steps of GOLDRUSHER. GOLDRUSHER!!!
Who ever made this mess musta been quite embarrassed, as goldrusher is probably the mellowest ride in the park.
I've traded in my 2000 Giovanola for a 2002 Arrow X4D :)
My other car is now an Arrow X4D!
LOL! This is a great topic! I have two....here's mine:
I think 2 years ago i went to cedar point with my family and we were going on the Power Tower. So me and my mom were on it and we were half way up the tower when my shoe sudden dropped off my feet. I look down and it almost dropped on the ride-op head. Unfortunately, Most of the people in the queue line all had cameras and taping us because there were only two towers running that day. When the ride was over everyone was taping and saying that was the coolest thing they ever saw. I was so embarrased.
The next one was at the same park but i was 8 or 9 years old. It was when raptor first opened. I was so excited to ride it. But i was so excited that i ate before riding it, and i ate ALOT that day. So me and my dad go on it i had a good ride but i wasnt feeling quezzy or anything so we were about to go on the corkscrew until all of a sudden i had a sudden urge to throw up......so i ran looking for the bathroom but couldnt find it.....Then i found the closest garbage can and threw up in it . Everyone was looking at me and saying ewww. then my dad finally comes over and says...what the hell is ur head doinhg in the garbage can? I was so dizzy and i wanted to go home.
LOL, this is extremely funny. Althrough I have never had anything happen to me, I was with my dad, on the Condor at Holiday Park. He doesn't exactly like the spin n' spew's, more less than the ones that can go up at the same time. But yet, he wanted a hot dog after he got off of the ride, he was green looking though.

I'm not sure if this is on subject, but I'll try anyway. It didn't happen to me. We were in line for Volcano at PKD. All of the people with fastpasses get on a train. The ride op tells this guy that he can't go on this train. So the guy gets pissed and when the next train is on the brakes with the harness open, he jumps the fence and jumps on the train while it is moving into the station. They stop the train and security escorts him to the exit of the park.
"Nothin wrong with a little airtime"
LOL, this is a hilarious topic. Well here is mine.
I was in line for Vortex at Carowinds. Anyone whose ridden Vortex knows that you have to go up 2 flights of stairs to get to the top. Well, I was on the second flight of stairs when heard a crunch under my feet. I looked down and I was stepping in pink, lumpy, vomit. It was so GROSS!
800,000 years in 7 seconds: Time Machine the movie or next S&S creation?
Here's my three. Not all of them are funny.
On our first ride on Superman:Ride of Steel at SFNE, my friend and I were almost on when this guy had to vomit. There was a trail from the train to the rail over the river. The ride was delayed for 15 minutes.
When we went on Cyclone another day, our first ride we got off and there was a vomit. We went on again and there was another vomit next to it. ewwww!
We were at a county fair and they had a very fast Scrambler there. My friend who weights 40 pounds more than me got the outside and I got the inside. I almost died, and my cap with twenty bucks flew off. Luckily no one stole it. So we go on again. One word-PAYBACK. I jabbed every elbow I could, put all my weight towards that side, he started crying while I was laughing. LOL!
221' drop on SROS is more like 8000'
I didn't do it, but there was a pile of poo (not horse poo, or cow poo, or any animal poo, but poo) at the exit of Raging Bull 2 years ago when I was there. I'd be quite embarassed if I was the one who made it. I'd never guess something as comfortable as Raging Bull could scare the crap out of someone.
Hey, look, I have a signature now! Even if it is only Yatta...
lol thats great!
If you are stoping by SFGAM come see me!cya, Josh
I was on the Berserker at PKD and someone thought it would be funny to spit when we were upside down. Unlucky for them, it hit me in my face on the way down. I guess you can say I was pretty pissed. After seeing a group of people laughing after the ride, I asked them what was funny. They said they hit some guy with spit on the ride. So then I hit him with a little something of mine and was escorted out of the park. Good Times.
My father and mother have a great story about Space Mountain in Florida. As most people know the seating is pretty awkward or at least used to be a few years ago. You would usually have to sit on a lap or ride alone.
So my mom is sitting on my dad lap throughout the ride when towards the end of it, her pants split!! Not a minor split but like a huge gapping rip. My mom tried to be inconspicious about the whole ordeal but my dad was laughing hysterically. He even joked with the ride ops about the incident asking them if he could get a refund for the pants! Of course my mother was extremely embarassed but she still laughs about it today.
confucius say:Show-off always shown up in showdown.
Best Fortune ever!!
