In physics last year, my science teacher always came to me, describing a ride that is(or was) at Great America, and asking me the name of the ride. Mainly Cajun Cliffhanger and Hay Baler. :P

A kid at my school was like "they stop you for like five seconds now when you go upside-down on the Goliath." :lol:

Okay. If you think the SFGAm GP is bad with line jumping, don't go to kennywood.
You'll get some guy yellin on his phone and then 20 people from his group trample you to the front. And there is line jumping on every ride. Even a flat with 10 people in line, they'll just go straight to the front. And the employees do nothing to stop it.
If anyone tries to stop them a response will come back as F*** you, you not my dad/mom and will flip you off
Yeah. Kennywood has bad line jumping

Hrmm, been to Kennywood at least a dozen or so times, never had any issues there. Something tells me you were there on a day when there was some inner city group having their company outing.

Yesterday, I heard someone say that they were going to ride Iron Wolf.

Also, back in 2012, I remember googling Iron Wolf, and I found a "Save Iron Wolf" Facebook Page from 2011.

If someone stole your finger print, they can't do much. They still need the physical finger print.

^ You are not alone. There's even a hashtag for him: #inb4bryceforun I think, for those who watch a video before he comments.

One time this season, I saw a mom let two of her kids go on the grass next to the employee service road between Yukon Territory and County Fair. An employee walking beside the service road didn't seem to notice/care.

Not really a "GP" comment, but how do you not know about the maps?

Today at SFGAm:

In line for Whirligig:
Teenage Girl - What's this ride even called, the swings?

In line for Batman: The Ride:
Grown Man - (Group talking about what would happen if someone went in the restricted area under the coaster)
Well, the Batman goes 90 MPH, so...

Last April or May, my science put on a POV of Green Lantern at SFGAdv during class.

It was like a GP Madhouse in there hearing everyone talk about the ride :lol:
