This thread is for all the people who was surprised at something someone either did or said in line.
For example, I was at Cedar Point last year and I was in line for Top Thrill Dragster. The people in front of me were talking loudly so I listened in. They were arguing about whether or not Dragster went underground. It was so funny, because this father kept saying it went underground and had the rest of the ride below it. I haven't heard anyone say anything dumber since.
I saw some weird stuff at CP in 02. In line for MS, these two guys were getting arrested for fighting (I think) and the cops were searching them and they had their shorts pulled down around their ankels with their legs spread and their fingers laced behind their head. You don't see that everyday.
I saw a couple snort cocain (I assume; it was a white powder and I didn't ask) in line for Raptor at night. During the day in line for Raptor this woman flashed her bewbies. *** Edited 4/16/2004 9:31:21 PM UTC by RavenTTD***
While waiting in line for Rolling Thunder at SFGADV. This girl got stuck in the air gate. She was in no danger and wasn't being hurt her leg was just stuck her friend was screaming like it was the end of the world. The ride op told them countless times to stay behind the yellow line.
I see people make out a lot one guy doing something that should be kept in private. That was inline for Medusa at SFGADV.
Oh, thanks for reminding me with the "make out" comment. In line for WT we saw two of the divers making out. They were back where the audience could not see them, but when they realized that they had another audience, they stopped.
Several times at Disney World I was in line with breast-feeding women... I wasn't expecting to turn around and see... what I saw. I realize this is a bit of a social issue and I am not stating a position on said issue. Just saying... it is not something I am/was accustomed to seeing.
Come on, like you guys have never seen two people getting it on in public. Most of you probably go to high school and see it every day... ;)
It's almost irritating to listen to people talk about such and such a ride killing people and having problems and such, then you tell them it never happened (if they're near you) and they argue that it did until you just shut up and go back to thinking about what you're going to have for dinner.
I've seen a person walking through Mean Streak's always empty and seldom used queue blocks...not sure if this was being done intentionally to get some laughs or if the person was seriously lost though.
While in line for B:TR @ SFStL, some guys were in front of us thinking that they were "hot shots". They jumped the line near the end of the park scene, and one of them tripped over the top rail while trying to jump over. Naturally, he fell, and while doing so he hit his head and started bawling. We couldn't help but to laugh.
My favorite was waiting in line for Nitro, when someone looked at the 230-foot ride and told his friend, straight-faced, that this ride was taller than the Empire State Building. And his buddy agreed. Because 230 feet and 1000+ feet are right close together.
Not exactly in line but, Magnum 2002 on the ride a guy lights up a cigrette on the lift and proceeds to hold it above his sholders the whole time showering the rows behind him with hot ash; laughing while riders behind him were screaming (he was in row 3 of a car and thus could not be reached from the row behind him).
All that laughing stopped when he got into the station though, the entire train pointed him out to ride ops, they called security and he was imidiately ejected.
