    Don't worry, he'll learn when he drops his camera or gets it confiscated. :D

    In Oblivion queue, two teenage boys "No offence mate, but you're not the bravest are you? You had to hold my hand on 13". The look of horror :)

    On Tuesday, I just entered the Rapid entrance and you could see the Wickeman in the distance, the woman in front of me say's to her partner "Oh! :eek: Something has gone up in flames!" :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    In Thirteen que on Friday a girl from the group in front of us said to the other members “ what’s the guys name in Friday 13th ?” The other member said “Jason?” She said “yeah that’s right! That’s who’s this ride is based on”.

    I didn’t want to break her bubble.

    The first one is nothing to do with what was said, but what was observe.

    On Saturday, I was sitting outside the Chicken place by the Smiler, A Dad brought his young girl behind the information board, all looking very shifty. She starts to take off a shoe and I just presume that she had a stone in her shoe. They removed from each shoe, a large crumple up ball of tissue paper, obviously to get over the height restriction.

    Yesterday, I went on Hex, I was sat to a group of young girls (they looked like there were in their 20's). It was quiet clear that one of them has never been on Hex before, but the others had. They were telling her to hold on tight but wouldn't tell her what happens. When the ride was in motion, the poor girl was really holding on for dear life, feet braced against the front and cowing her head down, not easy to explain, but it was priceless and very funny to witness :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    Yeah that's how mine looked as we didn't need to use them for nemesis,oblivion and duel....me and the daughter queued(although not for long) and got a parent q share for the mrs as my 7 year old is 135cm unfortunately....hoping for a growth spurt for next year as he's itching to get on the thrill rides

    We did manage to blag RMT into accepting it again near the end of the night as nothing else was ticked and i said it was because me lad was too small:D

    sorry for going off topic

    “I feel like now we’ve done hex we can go on the smiler”
    “Yeah now we’ve done hex we can go on anything upside down” o_O

    Nemesis queue - ‘I’m not queuing again. Just poop in the line, everyone does it”

    Oblivion - ‘there’s a cart at the bottom of the hole. People died and they left it there. You can’t see it thought because the speed makes you close your eyes’

    Flume - ‘there’s no rule against standing up. They just advise you not to’

    Strange link...
    Walking down the steps to Icon earlier in the week, the Lavender on each side is now in full flower.
    Stank like my grannies bog.
    Took me back forty years.
    Better than Nemesis **** though.
    Should have queueline bogs for us oldies.

    Didn't notice the smell when I went on Monday, but knowing me I wouldn't have liked it if I had. :p
