The latest Thorpe Park stunt: Requiring breathalyzer tests to find drunk university students

Posted Tuesday, September 25, 2012 11:27 AM | Contributed by VitaminsAndGravy

Theme park managers are taking the drastic measure of breath testing students, after too many have vomited on rollercoasters while drunk or hungover during the first week of university. But far from turning them away, Thorpe Park staff are instead happily directing those who are over the limit to the most extreme rollercoaster - which hurtles them through the air head-first at up to 60mph.

So does that make every row of this ride the "ejector seat?"

I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.

I wish more parks had the same sense of humor as Thorpe.

I may be mistaken, but isn't the Daily Mail a tabloid publication?

13 Boomerang, 9 SLC, and 8 B-TR clones

Yup. Daily Mail is National Enquirer level nonsense.

It is also therefore the best place to find leads on unusual alien activity whilst in the UK.

What's the more cost-efficient way to get on the most thrilling rides-- pay for Fast-Pass, or buy a 6-pack?

Actually the National Enquirer is becoming quite the credible source. The Globe on the other hand......
