My visit to the amusement park

I hadn't gone to one of these since I was about 15, so when I heard they were putting on one for ten days in my local city (with better rides than I was used to as well, my previous city didn't really get the full treatment), I was pretty excited. I had it in my head that I was gonna try all the badass shit that I was too much of a pussy to go on as a kid, and...I sorta did.

 

The first thing I tried was one of two rollercoasters that were there, and this line took fucking forever. As the wait is coming to an end I ask the two 11/12 year old girls in front of me if all the lines are this long and fortunately they tell me that's not the case. They also begin to recommend to me all of the most hardcore rides, but just by name so it didn't mean as much at the time. Later when I actually saw them, I was sorta impressed. I mean, two little girls went on this thing that went about four in the air, spinned and turned completely upside down. Is that not some majorly fucked up shit?

 

I was worried I was gonna lose my cool at last minute when the rollercoaster actually began (with the two 11 year old girls, mind you...), but I held it together pretty good. Just sorted gritted my teeth a bit. After this I went on probably the worst/scariest ride that I did, the Ring of Fire:

 

 

On this one, I did scream. A lot. I also had my eyes shut like a steel fucking trap about 99% of the time. You probably couldn't have made me open them unless you put some Clockwork Orange shit on me beforehand.

After that, I went on the nice, serene, no-screams ferris wheel.

I was still not completely over the Ring of Fire, so I kept up with the lower key rides for a little while dead2 I was pretty disappointed with the haunted house, they had this werewolf that looked a matted bear. But then I went to the "Video Box" or something, and although it wasn't all that great, I saw this. Stan.

Went to the funhouse as well, seeing a deformed version of yourself is always enjoyable.

I finally started going on the real, non-pussy rides again, starting with the Swing Tower. But there happened to be two different little girls (maybe 15) who weren't even holding the safety bars jj4 I of course gripped them for dear life.

 

 

And then probably my favorite ride, the Starship 4000. The gravity effect is really cool, went on this one a few times. Also once they were playing Poker Face. Stan again.

 

 

There were a few others in between that I don't quite recall, but the final ride I went on was the Crazy Mouse - another rollercoaster, but one that spins while you're on it. As I was a loner and they like to have so many people on certain rides, they put on this carny named Willem with me, who says this is gonna be a "VIP" ride. I had no idea what he meant, but it turned out their definition of VIP was "have two carnies spin around the rollercoaster like mad before it even starts so it spins even fucking crazier the whole time".

 

 

I tried to psyche myself up to go on the Drop of Doom, but nah, the suspense of that thing is just too fucked up carla1

I love amusement parks! I used to work at one cry6

What did you do again?

 

Also, there were like 7 different kids with fidget spinners. I'm not gonna get all hipster and say it's dumb just because I don't want one, but I'm not what the great appeal of the thing is. It's basically a plastic pinwheel without the stick.

I did everything, the rides were for little kids so they weren't that difficult to run and only needed one person at each one. So I took the tickets, buckled them in, and operated it. A triple threat legend! gaycat1
