SFGAM 6/17:"Don't take Girls with You"

Associated parks:
None

I'm sure you guys are getting tired of reading my SFGAm trip reports, so I'm just going to highlight points.

-I went with a group of eight people:3 boys and 5 girls.

-Don't ever take a big group of girls to a park. They have their own agenda and really slow the group down with bathroom breaks and eating every hour. They went to the bathroom four times each. The boys went once.

-The ops seemed really bored. They seemed to be doing their job half-assed. They were also very rude today. I saw a larger man having problems on Iron Wolf because he couldn't reach the seatbelt, so they kicked him out without helping. The Triple Play crew took 5 minutes to get everyone on and secured.

-The exception to the bad ops was V2. Not only were they turning the trains fast, they were extremely helpful when the ride broke down. They went into the que and taked to everyone in line.

-Raging Bull only ran two trains the whole day. The line was getting close to an hour and they still didn't put the third on.

-Some rides seemed to be running extremely fast and intense. Iron Wolf was giving a good banging, but the intensity and speed made up for it. Batman also seemed to be running a little faster, my face turned to mush in the finale.

-Superman was running extremely shaky. At the bottom of the first drop, the shaking was so bad it caused extreme pain on my crotch. The pretzel loop made up for it though, because it seemed more intense than normal.

-The park was filled, but not crowded. The lines on the popular rides were 40 minutes most of the day. The crowd really thinned out after 7, leaving many rides as walk-ons. This has happened every time I've gone so far this year.

That was pretty much it. I may think of more stuff later.

I totally agree with you on the point about the girls. However on the other hand, are you sure that it wasn't the girls causing you to have the "extreme pain on my crotch," syndrome?

Just kidding. Nice T/R.

Last couple of hours before closing seems to be the time and place to be (at least so far this season).

Uhh, standing in line at about 1:00, I observed as the Raging Bull mechanics put the third train on and noticed how it stayed on the entire day. Lines were about 15 minutes... You're right, in the morning, lines were long and only two trains. Oh well, sorry you couldn't get as many rides as me, I guess.

Don't ever take a group of girls with you? Depends upon what kind of girls you take. I'm not the kind of girl to eat every hour. In fact, I'm not the kind of person to even go to shows at a park. I'm there for rides. If you take people with you who are not of the same enthusiasm as you are, then you're going to have issues. It's not just girls, my friend. I speak from experience. The larger the group of people, the more varied is the interest among the group, the more difficult it is to make a decision on what to do, the more wasted is your day. Unless you somehow get a group of people with the same interests as you, which is pretty difficult as the number of people in the group increases. That's why I normally only go with a friend if not maybe two. I am not paying an inflated park admission price and an inflated parking price to stand around bickering with people.

I personally enjoy taking women to the amusement park. Have no problem with it. So what if they have to stop for the bathroom more often than you do. Big deal. Is the extra 10 minutes they spend in the bathroom going to kill your day? I would love to see how you would handle taking three kids to an amusement park for the day and dealing with all of their needs.

My favorite way to visit a park is with one good friend, preferably:

-Male, so I can make questionable comments, make fun of people, spit, etc., and be quiet for extended periods of time when I don't feel like talking;

-Will ride anything, so I don't have to deal with chickens;

-Likes video games, so I can spend an hour or two in the arcade;

-Doesn't need to eat much to keep him going, minimizing stops;

-Doesn't b&c about long lines, heat, traffic, etc. Such complaints kill my day faster than anything.

I have 2 or 3 people who fit these criteria.... unfortunately it's not often I get to visit a park under these ideal circumstances.

How do you Guys think us Girls Feel when we go to a park with you?

1.) you rush us..2.)You pee to quick.so then we have to listen to you complain about how long we take in the bathroom.3.) you fart(discusting) 4.) you don't ride the ferris wheel 5.) you tell nasty sex jokes while standing in line.6) You eat like once(but when u do eat u eat like a pig )7.) you talk on the coaster.(i hate that) 8.)you like to get wet(water rides) i hate to get wet personally 9.) you scope out other girls while were right there 10.) about 9/10 times you forget your season pass or ticket....=)

Now im a girl that needs to pee 2 or 3 times in a day at a park....and i have to have an Elephant ear like every hr. when at CP...but i ride all the coasters and i have to rush when in the park..i hate waiting..oh i don't spit. but when called upon.....=) i might fart j/k!

Wow, some people really have it regimented...

It really doesn't matter to me. If I go with another male (needless to say, like me), we may get on a bunch of coasters quickly, but it may not be quite as fun as going with a female...

My point is, if you go to the park more than like 4 or 5 times anyway, what does it matter if one trip is slower and, well, different? Maybe it's more fun in another way? Maybe?

It's an amusement park... Just reeellllaaaxxxx!

...............

And so on. I certainly hope you don't think that all of these items describe a female companion. The most fearless companion I've ever had in a park trip was a girl. And yeah, I'm a girl too. Is it this commonly held belief that all girls want to do at a park is shop, go to the bathroom, eat, chicken out, gossip and complain? Please say this isn't so. Most guys I know can't keep up with me in a park. I'm sure I'm not so unusual here.

I really don't have it "regimented," I'd never really thought about it until today that the couple of people I like to go to parks with all fit certain criteria.

And only the first item on my list applied to males. I definitely have several guy friends who are chickens, several that love to complain, several that have to eat and pee all the time.

What a bunch of one-dimensional CoasterDorks!

After years of being the only male in the house and taking diaper-clad children to the park with me, I became a better-rounded individual. I'll take in a show if it's good--or endure one I've seen every week if it makes my little ones jump and cheer. Will I climb on the Frog Hopper or Lil' Convoy? Better believe it! Twenty times? Okay, maybe a dozen. Hypercoasters and spin-and-spues aside, one of my favorite VF activities was getting a chaise in the kiddie pool area and watching the clouds drift by as the 2 year-old Midget napped on my chest.

Coasters, coasters, coasters. Lines, lines, lines. I swear you guys need a life or something. Just my opinion.

I guess I am an oddball. I prefer to go with females rather than males. I find if I am with males than I complain or do stupid stuff where as if I am with females than I keep control of myself and I find we can talk. To me it is more enjoyable to hang out with the opposite sex.

Nice trip report though. Any Ideas on when Deja Vu will open?

Playa, when you can do this:

The CPlaya 100--6 days, 9 parks, 47 coasters, 2037 miles and a winner.....LoCoSuMo.

... then of course you don't mind wasting a little time by the pool. But when you only spend about 24 hours a year at amusement parks, you really want to make the most of your time.

I went on 6/16, the date in the title is wrong. I know for a fact that RB did not run the third train that day.

Also, maybe if one of them was a girlfriend I would have been happier to have a day with them, but none of them where. I just like hanging out with the guys, because you get more done and you can check out the hot girls at the park with out getting smacked or called a pig.
