I had to laugh at this story because it reminds of my time working in the Museum industry and busting our teen volunteers smoking in a highly visible area.

Robert, Can you somehow add a few other cool stories this week? A lot of the Midwest is expected to see a storm not seen in 29 years. We could really use something to offset the boredom. :)

Always love a good yarn. When I went to Grad Night back in '04, I never considered smoking or drinking on the boats. Considering most people think they're not being watched, I find it hilarious to know that people are getting busted for doing things they're not supposed to. To be totally honest, though, I thought this was going to be a story about people hopping off the boats. I'm sure you've got some of THOSE, too.

I remember working Middle School Grad Night at Seaworld for the several years I worked there. It was hellish but we always had our own brand of fun, my job was simply "Take a flashlight and an empty Polaroid camera.. go threw the bushes and scare the kiddies who are making out".

Yeah it was long and annoying, I got scratched by dozens of sticker bushes and random greenery. However when you did catch the little baby-teens in the bushes making out, the flash of an empty camera and a flashlight kicking on.. the amusement of the entire situation came out. Remember, we got PAID for this! ;)

Ahhh, the good ol' days.

When I was a CM working in TDA, I had a coworker who seemed to enjoy Grad Night Cross-U shifts. He once pointed out a cave built into the side of Big Thunder, just past a small fence right off of the path between Big Thunder Ranch and Fantasyland. Apparently it went back just far enough so the unused tracks leading into it looked like they went into an actual mine, and the shadows in the back could be quite dark. His plan was to hide in the cave with a flashlight at the ready, wait for any frisky couples to come into the cave for privacy, and light them up.
