Sorry, I must strongly disagree with him. First off, there 'is' rowdy teens. But they don't overun the park. And perhaps he would like to of been burned by the "motionless teacups".Which close often due to safety. Sorry this seems just like another jerk who does little research before posting a 'bitching' artical.
Now now Mike. Dont take this as a personal attack.
Firstly, that's exactly what he said--the teens don't
overrun the park. His argument is that it is in fact the park that has run-itself down. Not the teens which management prefer to use as a scapegoat.
Secondly, I understand that there is a "reason" why the Cups are down. But when you pay $59.99 to get into a park, it isn't the responsiblity of the guest to "understand" the reason behind the closure. As far as I'm concerned, for 60 bucks, this is a problem that "they" (the park) should have looked at when they built the ride in the first place! You can't expect the guests to be sympathetic when they are in the process of being financially raped.
And in my
expirence with early Scrambler closures (also for "hot seats"), most of the time its merely supervisors searching for a lame excuse for not having to staff a ride.
