A couple of kids at my school, who know jack about coasters, every now and then will talk about rollercoasters. One day I heard a kid talking about MF. The kid told another kid that MF was 500 feet tall. It was so dumb I didn't even waste time telling them they were wrong by almost 200 feet.
"Where's the Magnum Force?" "Wheres the OTHER Magnum?" "Is the Magnum sinking??" "When is it going to stop raining?" "Does this ride go upside down?", while looking at the WildCat... "Does this ride run during the Laser Show???", while looking at the sigh that reads "THIS RIDE CLOSES FOR THE LASER SHOW" "Where is Raging Bull??", while in fron t of the Raptor

Has NOTHING to do with rides, but when I was doing a show on a ship, I'd be running through passenger halls, making quick changes (half-naked mind you) and people would ask stupid questions like. . .'Do you work on the ship?' 'Are you in the show?' and the classic 'What time does the midnight buffet start?'
Once, a guest looked at me and asked,"Do you work here?" I was wearing a ride host uniform and wearing a Cedar Point name tag at the time. Sometimes, I wonder... ------------- CP ride host - *2000 - Cedar Downs, WildCat *2001 - Cedar Downs assistant team leader
I was at pki over the summer and heard the dumbest and ruddest thing ever at a park or anything. IT was a rainy day and i was in like for the son of beast. It really started to pour as i got to the station and they closed the ride due to rain and lightening. about 25 minutes into the delay a kid about 4-6 years older than me , he was about 18 - 20 or so, started to complain outloud that he had to go to the bathroom. A few minutes later he yelled across the station to the ride op in the booth " what am i supposed to do to go to the bathroom around he , just whip it out and start pissing everywhere." What made it worse is the fact there was several 6- 8 year old kids in the line listening to everything. He wouldn't stop so I kindly asked him to and explained to him that there was several young kids around and they didn't need to hear stuff like that. After several adults and ride ops caught on to what I was doing they started geting on him.
I don't have any that I remeber off the top of my head, but when some peep says something like that, I can't help but laugh inside at their stupidity. I figure, It's not my job to tell them. So I go along my way thinking "If they don't know by now, why should I tell them that what they just said was completely stupid."
Once at PKi I was getting into line for Adventure Express with my six year old cousin who loves Adventure Express. Right after we entered the line, two people in front of us looked at King Cobra and they asked each other if they were in line for that ride. After deciding that they were inline for the looping cobra, that had somehow been named Adventure Express, they left line to find a calmer ride! I`ve never heard of anyone thinking that Adventure Express`s line was for king Cobra before. Obviously they didn`t have a park map and had not been to Kings Island much.
