Guests Say The Darnest Things

Recommended Posts

While waiting in line to get in the park today I overhead this from obviously two people who went to same church.

"Well what are you doing here, how come you are not with your family at church?"

" I dunno, why aren't you at church?"

"Oh, it's dollar days. Jesus understands dollar days"

At a dining location at Six Flags Great America this woman comes up with her son and his sandwich

"I said no ketchup! It's too spicy for him!"

And I'm just thinking, it's 80℅ sugar. Ain't nothing spicy about catsup"

^ I thought Kings Island was daycare. Why else would they have have a drop off zone?

On a serious note does KI have an unattended age policy? I don't recall ever seeing one.

I do not beleive so and I do not want one at Kings Island. If they ever try to create a policy that is the same one that Tri-County Mall has, in my humble opinion, that would be outrageous...... Just because I am under 18 does not make me a hooligan who is going to cause trouble. Not everyone under 18 is going to KI because it is "Daycare", I go there all day because I want to have FUN, have memories, and while my parents may be working during that time, that does not mean I am there to cause trouble.

I understand the sentiment but that's not quite right. I actually wish ketchup contained real sugar, Heinz for example chooses the far more nefarious high fructose corn syrup.

Next to tomato, most ketchup contains vinegar and while "spicy" may not be the best description it does give it that "tangy" flavor that some may refer to as spice for lack of a better word.

Whatever you want to call the flavor it is far to strong for some palates. I am the father of one that can't stand it.

And I thought my girlfriend was weird for thinking pepperoni is too spicy...

I once heard a little boy say to his dad, standing by the Son of Beast sign (back when it still had the loop) say, "There is a Beastie, a Beast, and a Son of Beast, but where is mommy Beast?"

I literally thought this was pretty funny because I remember his dad rolling his eyes.

Easter Sunday, In Line for Mystic Timbers, Gentleman behind me...now I'm not judging or anything but he was wearing an RIP Mean Streak shirt, so I assumed he was a coaster fan...until he said "GCI is a brand new company, they've only ever built one coaster before this one and it's in europe. This is their first coaster in america."  My Face lol :huh:

I will be honest. I love rollercoasters, but I know nothing about the companies who build them.

What is really scary is when you meet an enthusiast that knows the names of all the engineers that work at said companies and where they worked prior.   Just slowly start backing away. :)

The only name i know is that Alan Shicke (or whatever) from RMC because everyone thinks he is up there with Einstein and Jesus and can't shut up about him.

We've All Heard Them! All Guests and visitors to KI aren't updated with the park (wink wink, nudge nudge). We've heard things that are soooooo stupid to say are true, we just HAVE to say Ok

Post the funniest/oddest/weirdest things that people say about KI

"They're tearing down The Vortex, it's too outdated"

"They put a loop on AE"

"Isn't that the ride where the people fell off the loop?" (Directed from SOB)

"Cedar Fair SUCKS SELL IT BACK TO PARAMOUNT!" (Hardy Har Har)

"WAIT?" "They are rebuilding Son of Beast?" (said from the lift of DBack looking at MT construction)

Oh no I totally get that lol! But... what bugged me about it was he was telling other people in line this and they were like "oh really! That's cool they would take a chance on a small company" lol no one should be told false info lol

When a few of us were waiting to ride Vortex, a woman in front of us said this was the first ever roller coaster for two young boys she was with. We all looked at each other dumbfounded and then asked if she thought that was a good idea. 

I'm told that one of them actually passed out on the coaster, and we all felt bad imagining him ragdolling through the ride. That's a perfect example of how not to make a new coaster enthusiast I guess. 

On the other hand, we also saw a young woman get off Vortex, go puke in the bushes, then happily ask her friends if they wanted to go ride WindSeeker :)

When did that happen (if it happened this past weekend)? I know it didn't happen when I was there working, thankfully. :wacko:

I'm assuming the train has the same songs again this year?  Bonanza (cool!), Kokomo (barf), Rocky Top (nice) and Cottoneye Joe (meh)?  :)

^I can't say I've ever heard Rocky Top on it. Wild Wild West, along with those you mentioned, though. And they're the same as the last few years. 

I guess the thing with the boy passing out must have been sometime Saturday afternoon.

An approximately 11 year old kid behind me in the MT line on Sunday was telling his father that MT was about on the same level as AE.  Even the dad corrected him and said that it was better than AE.

My fiancé knows better but while on Vortex on preview day we were talking to a really nice guy sitting behind us about the old Bat coaster and she said it was a wooden suspended coaster.

My girlfriend's three-year-old granddaughter can't wait to see the "Purple Monster Show" when it opens in the Kings Island Theater on the 27th. ;)

Ok!

Also, saw a commercial for Cirque du Soliel's OvO show that is coming to Cincy and I was mesmerized; can't wait until Cirque comes back (and if things work out, I might be seeing OvO and Origins on back-to-back weekends!).

More on topic, I was on the brake run for The Bat one time (it was before the repaint) and some little kid behind me said "I liked it when we went upside-down!" IIRC, I was chuckled to myself in my seat.

Go to OvO and you may see a familiar face...just Imagine who it could be

Here's one that irked the engineer in me:  "Why did they build the coaster out of wood? Nothing is ever built of wood."
