    Thumbs down Get Ready Screamers! Head Back, Face Forward, and Watch Out!

    I encountered horrible behavior taking place over at Paradise Pier in DCA tonight. On the upper pier, to the left side of the California Screamin' launch portion, I spotted two teenagers acting appallingly. As I walked by, I stopped for a moment to watch an approaching coaster launch. When the coaster stopped before the launch, the two teens started trying to spit at the guests onboard! Fortunately, it seemed that their spit didn't come close to hitting the coaster.

    So, what to do now? The fun is over, right? Uhhh... no. One teen reached into his pocket and started throwing his change at the guests! That's right, and I'm not talking about gently under handing the coins towards the coaster. He was chucking coin after coin, aiming for the guests onboard. I expected the onlookers near me to notice all of this taking place, but everyone seemed to be only paying attention to the ride. The teen obscurely threw each coin by keeping his arm close to his body and not raising his right arm openly in the air.

    As the coaster finally launched, the two teens smiled with enjoyment and laughed. As they waited for the next coaster to leave the station and arrive onto the launch section, I immediately approached a CM nearby and told him about what just occurred. He became visibly upset and gathered the two teens next to the Paradise Pier billboards. There, the teens who were smiling just seconds ago had scared and worried looks on their faces. The CM started talking to them, and that was that. I didn't have time to stay and observe what would happen to them...
    Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

    I would of loved to bust those punks. I would of probably got my AP yanked and had the swat team show up and probably would be facing some pretty serious criminal charges but it would of been worth it.

    I am glad you did something about that. Stupid punks. You never know, these may have graduated to throwing rocks off of freeway overpasses. You hear about that sometimes and it causes a lot more damage than you would expect, and even has the possibility of causing a major accident.

    What these punks were doing was bad enough anyway. What if one of the coins hit a guest in the eye or something. A coin or something traveling at a huge speed could have torn their eye and may even resulted in blindness.

    Great job, ts!

    Agreed that the teenagers were clearly out of line, but please, let's not let this turn into another bash teenagers thread. Some teenagers are idiots, no question, but they also seem to have some of the most fun in the parks....

    I don't know what some people are thinking sometimes. I'm sure that if that kid hit someone with a coin he wouldn't have cared about the damage that could have been done. Thanks for reporting them to a CM. I hope they were ejected from the parks.

    Maybe the teens had friends or family on the ride? Maybe they were throwing the coins at them? ya never know. Just give them the benefit of the doubt.
