Top 3 Most Annoying Things at Amusement Parks
This week’s topic is pretty self-explanatory. I love visiting theme parks, but here are the least enjoyable things about my visits.
3 – Coaster Misinformation
I can’t count the number of times that I’ve been in line and overheard the most insane, unrealistic, and impossible things about the coaster I’m in line for. They are said like fact, not just an educated guess. I can’t tell if people believe these things or they’re making them up on the spot to kill time in line.
I know that I’m a coaster geek and I know a lot more than the average person about roller coasters, so 99% of the time I restrain myself from correcting people. I don’t want to come across like that comic book geek from The Simpsons.
2 – Paying for Parking
You’re already being raked over the coals with current park admission prices these days (unless you’ve been using my tips to find theme park coupons). But parks also charge in excess of $10 for parking. I’d love to look at a park’s bottom line to see what the parking revenue goes to.
1- Line Cutters
There’s nothing worse than waiting in a long line, just to have some rude people push by you to “join their friends in the front of the line”. It’s enough to nearly ruin a visit.
I’ve decided to stop letting people cut in front of me. Somehow I manage to never have to cut in line or have my friends cut in line to join me. Ride queues are first come first serve people! If I’m in line ahead of you too bad.
