Never Has Gravity Been So Uplifting.
The year the Wave Swinger premiered at Kennywood, a woman in the swing in front of me had an incontinence problem, and peed herself, trickling on my brand new Rebok Pump high tops.
I swear, it's true!
My Beautiful wife, Julia, is the best thing that has ever happened to me!
My girlfriend puked on my foot on a Wipeout
The worst I had was with another supervisor and some managers. It was at the teacups and the mess was huge, the saucer of the cup had a fluidy mess at least 1.5" deep. It took all of us awhile to tackle that one.
My most recent worst was at the Round Em Up, or tilt a whirl as most know it. The pile was a thick orange-red liquid that smelled very strong, I think it included chicken. I had to stop halfway through to get more supplies and after I cleaned the car, I had more to clean when we turned its brakes off and moved it up. It took me a good 30-45 minutes on that one.
Dave Dragon, go Dave Dragon, and the Star Force Five!
I saw my fair share of it working at Raptor. Funniest was when the guy retched all over himself waiting on the runway. He was laughing so hard about it after, I'm still not sure why.
I think even worse than Puke Stories are AFR stories (Accidental Fecal Release). I remember having a pool of it all over the platform on AARC day one year. It just started to run down the leg as the disabled woman was being helped out of the car. Gross stuff. Deck brushes and lots of disinfectant that day.
2. After riding Magnum this kid ran for the can in the station exit and as he thrust his head into the side of the can to spew, he totally smashed the bridge of his nose on the opening..........I felt bad, but I laughed the whole way down the exit ramp.
Well this girl about ten or so with long hair is across from me. She turns her head sideways and just lets it loose. It sticks to the wall and in her hair. The op didn't even notice till everone starts yelling at him to stop the ride.
I was at Unload 3 on Mantis (rows 6, 7, and 8) and this guys pulled into the station covered covered in vomit. As he was unfastening his seatbelt, a guest in row 1 ran out of the station. Apparently, the guest in row 1 thew up sometime during the ride (i'm guess at the top of the loop) and it all splattered all over the guy in row 8 at the bottom of the loop. It was sick...looked kinda like watered down scrambled eggs.
Then, my friends and I were wainting in line for the bumper cars at Kennywood. There was about 16 of us. My buddies Jimmy, Brandon and I were at the front of our group and there was a little girl, no more than about 5, and her mother in front of us. All of a sudden, the girl starts pulling at her mom's pant leg and screams "Pee pee mommy!" The next thing we know, the little girl peed herself. Then, the mother picks her up and flings her over the railing to her dad that was on the other side. The pee that was dripping down her legs flew off her leg and hit Brandon in the face. Everybody cracked up. The sad thing is Brandon was like, what just happened. I still don't think he knew that was pee that hit his face.
While on the topic of disgusting ones I've cleaned up personally.. in prior days, I operated the Skyscraper. There were these 2 kids, each barely making the height requirement, pretty slim. Strap them in, start the ride. No big deal. Next 2 people, strap in - start the ride. This kid shouts "STOP THE RIDE! I THREW UP." So I do my best to stop the ride, which was almost full speed already at that point. Now, when he said he threw up - he didn't. He regugitated about 3 times his body weight. There was a pile of puke all over his chest, with a nice 3" thick pile on his lap. The worst part was that we had to reach INTO that mound of half-digested food to unclip the straps. Between the 3 of us that were there at the time leaving to take breaths off the platform, it took us about 10 minutes to get him out. Then, we had to close the straps empty so we could [slowly] bring the other side around and get the people off. In the end, it took us about an hour and 45 minutes to properly clean the ride, including those wonderful cloth straps. *** Edited 12/16/2004 5:23:18 AM UTC by dannerman***
Besides, I look at it as training for future fatherhood. After what I've cleaned up, there is *NOTHING* that can come out of a child that I wouldn't be able to handle.
The one that comes to mind is my first time on Raging Bull. We went directly to the back seat. Right as the train was entering the station some kid just hurled.......ugh
Anyway, they spent about 15 minutes cleaning it up, and let the train "dry run" for about 3 or 4 times.
Luckily we got the 2nd train anyway.
It was just nasty, and the smell.................
And I remember some dude hurling right as we were exiting Flight of Fear at PKI. He barely missed my shoes.
