Things You've Overheard at Parks

Recommended Posts

Overheard this yesterday in the indoor section of the Cabin in the Woods queue;

 

Girl 1: "Is this the maze?"

Girl 2: (Pointing to the exit) "Yeah I think you go out to the left"

Girl 1: "What's the ******* point in that?"

Not really something I overheard, but a group of people from my school came up to one of my friends who was dressed up in spooky makeup and asked "Are you one of those thingy people?"

Whilst walking through the backwards queue of the Swarm in 2013, a bunch of younger kids in the regular queue were shouting to us "don't go backwards, it's too scary!" Whilst clinging onto the fence (some extra apocalyptic theming ;))

 

Seeing as I had ridden backwards multiple times before, they were ignored

Hilarious how those not involved in the fandom know nothing of why Loggers is closed... Even though he would normally be relative accurate if it weren't being left to rust...

Queuing for Nemesis Inferno at Thorpe, ride attendant in the booth was obviously a little bored so he puts on a spooky doom voice and says "PREPARE FOR YOUR DOOM UPON NEMESIS INFERNO!!" Many a giggle was shared..

reading this reminded me of summer nights 2014, when an operator on Colossus right near the end of the night was bored and started screaming 'I'm old gregg' down the mic in the station. absolutely iconic....I hope that guy still works at the park :lol:

At Summer Nights this year someone in the swarm station shouted bogey (it was supposed to be a jokey call sign to others in their group) within a few seconds everybody was shouting it including the guy in the control box over the PA.

 

Christ knows what anybody must have thought outside hearing "bogey, bogey, bogey, bogey" being chanted over and over.

A woman was describing the scare maze she went in last year at Thorpe Park in Land of the Vikings, "there was this tunnel and you had to go through it, I said "I'm not going through that and they said there was no other way out so I had to crawl through it and they were properly pushing and pulling me about, then at the end you get chased out by a man with a chainsaw." "Oh my God. What was it called?" "Oh it was the Saw one I think" "Yeah Saw is scary".

 

That's odd, Saw seems very similar to Sub Species at Alton Towers, too similar in fact...

That's not the point of it...

Sometimes Sam, meaning cannot be properly conveyed in a message on a forum such as this, and one's interpretation may not be correct.
