Beyond CaliFlorida: Watch your mouth!
Written by Jeff Elliott
Swearing in the park – It appears that some deity or other is taking its wrath out on theme park guests lately. I’m sure the deity would like to remind us that taking its name in vain is sure to cause havoc. Last week someone swearing on Ninja at Six Flags Magic Mountain caused the deity to fell a tree on a calm and clear day and place it in the way of one of the trains. This week it was hitting the Walt Disney World monorail line with a lightning bolt. What is it going to be next week? I’m concerned for all of you that if we don’t get this swearing problem under control, we are going to have some people seriously injured this week. Please, for the sake of yourselves and others around you, try to use words that sound like dirty words if you must, but aren’t, like duck, sit, pass, manhole, funk, lemon, schnitzel, and others. We need everyone’s help to get this under control while we still can. An angry deity is a vengeful deity.Tweet
Theme Park Apprentice – Those wishing to participate in this summer’s Theme Park Apprentice design competition should keep an eye on the discussion board. I hear there is going to be an announcement for signups in the next couple of days.
And we have an appropriate prize for the winner of this round of the Theme Park Apprentice design competition: the coveted Minion Hard Hat!
Kings Island – The park has filed plans for a 5,000-square-foot building back by the Beast. I hate to think that they are building something that we don’t quite know about just yet. Although my guess would be a similar dark ride/roller coaster attraction as the new Wonder Mountain’s Guardian that just opened in Canada’s Wonderland.
