    Sometimes they just refuse to listen so much that you get a bit frustrated and more angry than you should be. He shouldn't yell...but guests shouldn't get up. Sometimes you have to yell when safety is involved, because when someone dies, it isn't their fault, it'll be his.

    Its like working parade all over again.

    Ugh. Some guests really don't understand, that if you don't follow the safety protocol an attraction can annd will kill you.

    And this, I think, illustrates the primary problem Imagineers have in designing today's attraction. You have to prevent people's stupidity from working against themselves.

    This is why I hate the human race as a whole.

    To quote Ron White: "You can't fix stupid."

    If I had been there, I would have been yelling at the other guests, "SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP! THIS CAST MEMBER IS TRYING TO DO HIS JOB! SIT THE EFF DOWN YOU MORONS!"

    Because I'm blunt like that.

    That CM sounds terribly frustrated - poor guy - it's like trying to get cats to walk in a parade.

    Man they need to make it so he can talk to one single theater that's the problem if it isn't needed to be heard in every theater at once it shouldn't be :P

    But at a certain point the people leaving in the video-taped theater were just fed up with the yelling CM and the attraction not starting.

    Poor CM, that's so annoying

    They should add a sign like "If you stand up while the theater is rotating you can loose your legs/head"

    Or adding bars like the ones on Stich that don't let people move no matter how mush they are willing to escape

    Re: EPIC guest fail=CoP evacuation/CMs losing it

    They should have had security give the people who left a stern talking to.. sure the customers come first and blah blah blah... but whatever, this kind of junk is enough to make you want to quit your job

    I don't understand how it's hard to say "Failure to comply with instructions is reason to be escorted out of the park". We have this policy at my local theme park and while yes, it causes drama at the moment, it makes it better because you don't have people spitting off rollercoasters or throwing change off of random thrill rides, or people getting up during motion rides, etc etc etc

    "Failure to comply with instructions is reason to be escorted out of the park".

    They have that at Universal and lemme tell you, IOA coordinators and Team Members do NOT fool around and hand out stickers and No Strings Attached forms. We've actually radioed other attractions at IOA to warn them about guests.

    That is just sad. Especially how people continue to walk right out of the theater even while he is saying quite clearly and concisely not to. Also, I despise the lack of attention span today's Uh-Merican seems to have. If the attraction doesn't have any loops or Disney characters, It's obviously not worth their time when they could be eating a churro or buying useless merchandise.

    BTW, CoP for life.

    Re: EPIC guest fail=CoP evacuation/CMs losing it

    I would have at some point started yelling "Ladies and gentlemen. Someone was killed on this ride because they stood up! Please do not stand up during this ride!"

    Ok so that was at America Sings. But still it's the same thing.
