What would you say instead of 3...2...1... launch!

Saturday, December 29, 2001 12:15 PM
I was on the Batman Chiller a while ago and I remember the Ride Opp say "have you guys ever seen Gone In 60 Seconds? Well heres the real thing, LAUNCH!" that was so cool and on the way home all I could think about was what I would say. I think i would say, "3...2..1...launch......just kidding.............Launch!"

 

The only problem is  to say something which wouldn't make the rides turn their heads. or ouch!

I prefer the SUE way (if I remember correctly...) They say "CLEAR!" and any second after that it blasts off. I love it...I wonder if that's how Wicked Twister is going to be run. I'm dying to go in June!

I know alot of ride ops do it, but I know at SFGAm we're not supposed to say stuff like that.  Example- V2. the only thing we're "supposed" to say is clear for launch.  But hey, who actually follows the rules right?  Nah just kidding, I just said the assigned spiels while other people do like a countdown from 5, so its like 5....4....3.....launch.

"Alright everything looks good,i-i think that it is going to work this time!"

"Warning warning"

"oh no"

and then u blast off it is pretty cool

I have read that some people will say "Raise you hands if you have never been on this ride." When hands are raised launch.

I think that was the same guy I saw! He said the same thing! he aslo said, "Does everyone know how this ride goes? Good-Launch!" My favorite was when he said "Launching in-" the launched the train! That was hot.

"Oh shoot, the button isnt working.  Lady's and gentlemen, we are going to have to shut the ride down...  **press** nevermind."

 

Would be a little mean to do but still would be funny.

Yes, Dr. Bruce Banner AKA The Hulk talks in the launch tube before acceleration.  DuffGardens got it pretty much right.  The computer also says, "Warning Coolant levels dropping", right before the launch.

Well, I'm pretty sure you won't hear anything next summer on the Wicked Twister about the ride not working right or anything that may make people feel unsafe.  As a ride op, that's one of our duties, to make sure that everyone feels safe and confident in the ride ops.  But that doesn't mean you won't hear some good stuff from me in May...  Hopefully we'll have a wireless headset, but sadly I doubt that, something about the frequencies being taken.

When I was at SFA the ride operator had a bunch of sayings for Jokers Jinx , but the one that I remember the most was, "Get out of my station!!!"

This one guy on the big shot in Vegas right before we were about to launch what state we were from.  We all said our state and he said "What did you guys say?" and then everybody screamed "Illinois" and whil we screamed it he launched us.  Oh man was that funny.

I must have totally blocked that out when riding, because I don't remember at all! The ride was great non-the-less.
