Rider climbs out of Ferris wheel in mid-air at Hersheypark
One more for the "what were they thinking?" file:
From The Patriot-News:
A Ferris wheel rider in Hersheypark on Saturday evening didn't like the conversation he was having with his female companion, so he got off the ride -- while it was moving.
The man, who was not identified, climbed out of the ride's car and sat crossed-legged on the roof for about 25 minutes as Derry Twp. police and his family tried to talk him down, Hersheypark spokesman Garrett Gallia said.
Here's the full story.
Despite the better efforts of one and all (Hey, Six Flags! How's it goin'? How's the "family friendly" thang swingin' for you in Valencia? Gnarly!), the axiom "You can't upgrade your clients" in the design side of the themed entertainment racket holds doubly true for the churro 'n plush buying side of things as well.
Nice rant, E. I especially applaud your use of "chowderhead".
Wow. That's pretty bizzare. Why would he get off the ride? That's just crazy. It would've been a lot eaiser for him to just deal with it after the ride stopped, but he had to cause all that drama. It's pretty funny, actually. At least nobody got hurt.
