When I was reading the Trip post by SummerInFL, it made me remember about a couple of unfavorable trips I've had on some of my favorite attractions. It's amazing how much people can really ruin a ride. I can think of at least three.
1. Once, when I was riding Big Thunder Mountain (with a fellow Micechatter), there was a teenage girl who was sitting in the car just ahead of us. Throughout the entire duration of the ride, this stupid, annoying girl did nothing but scream at the top of her lungs. She wasn't scared, she was doing it to get a few laughs out of her (just as) annoying comrades. The trip was Hell on wheels, I hate high pitched sounds, and she was like a friggen siren!
2. When I was riding the Haunted Mansion, just like I'm sure this has happened to countless people before, some idiot in the next car decided everything was completely too scary for him. This twenty year plus dork decided that he was also going to scream at the top of his lungs, and then take the brightest flash pictures of it every five seconds. AHHHHH!
3. The third also happened on Big Thunder Mountain and it involves Cheerleaders. I have come to the conclusion that Cheerleaders are THE MOST ANNOYING PEOPLE ON THE PLANET!!!! Throughout the entire ride they were giving their stupid little cheers, and rhymes, and other pointless foolishness! People at the back of the train were yelling SHUT UP, my sister was completely POed, and I was having the most irritating (okay second most irritating) ride of my life!
Why do people feel they need to do these kind of things. Do they have something wired wrong in their heads that makes them thing that they are the only people riding the attraction. You know, when Disney spends hundreds of thousands of dollars creating soundtracks for these experiences, it's for a reason.
The worst part is, I couldn't confront any of them because I was a CM, and we can't start conflicts with guests!
What'R your thoughts?
