Thorpe Park wants to battle B.O.
Thought this would brighten up your day from all this bad news coming from the parks or at least give you something to think about:
Thorpe Park [anyone want to update those listings? - Ed.] in England has now told their patrons that they can not put their arms up on their roller coasters. Why you ask? Because they want to stop bad body odor from the armpits of their guests on their roller coasters.
Here's a link from the UK Mirror.
Wow. That really makes me want to book a trip to Thorpe Park.
Hahaha thats so funny! That just made my day.
Thats not entirely true. It is only being banned when it is over 25c, and here in the UK it doesnt happen very often.
I trust content from the Daily Mirror as much as I do from the Sun and the Sport.
Not a bad idea for any theme park during the heat of the summer.
Really? (slight head tilt to the left ala Stan on South Park) :)
Doesn't really sound like a bad idea. No one wants to smell others armpits, just one wiff could ruin all that time you spent in line waiting for the ride. I don't see much point in holding your arms up anyways. Alot of people say it makes you feel weightless. The coaster makes you feel weightless, where you have your arms has nothing to do with it.
I believe I heard it on ABC radio this morning as wild and wacky news.
This reminds me of when I went to Universal Studios Orlando close to ten years ago. My family and I boarded the Back to the Future Ride with three random people...who happened to have the worst B.O. ever. It ruined the entire ride for me.
Soccer Jerseys, route of all B.O. Evil, especially Liverpool ones, GET THE HINT BRITS, lol....
This is by far the stupidest thing I've come across in all my time as a theme park fan! Well done Thorpe Park, you've created a fuss about a problem that never existed in the first place.

This is the sort of thing that makes me ashamed to be British, it's the most stupid rule I've ever heard from a themepark! You are right about those Liverpool shirts they stink, the Manchester United ones smell the best! :0)
Oh I don't know Hannah! Man U stinks pretty bad after yesterday.
We don't get that problem at the Bridge. Unlike the Gooners we just have the sweet smell of success. You probably don't remember it do you.
Oh no - Brit soccer fight.
Thankfully Gareth I'm a Utd fan with a sense of humor, I'm still finding it funny now and being a gooner you obviously have one too!
I've got too. Our silverware is a little slim recently, but hopeful for this year after the start we had.
