I'll copy the segments of "The GP Say The Darndest Things" from my TR's...

1. "The map said El Toro is the fastest roller coaster in New Jersey."
2. "El Toro reminds me of Rock n' Roller Coaster"
3. "They closed down the ride 'cause its too windy and the tower is unstable."
4. "Whoa! Are those jalapenos growing on those plants? Take a couple, I'm hungry!"


1. (Pointing to ET) "That ride right there is OLD SCHOOL! You ever see the news? Those are the ones that break!"
2. "Batman: The Ride is dangerous. If you straighten out your legs, they touch the track..."
3. "Is that green thing worth it? I heard it costs, like 200 dollars per person..."
4. "Hey! How come those people get to cut the line? I paid to get into this park!"


1. "Kingda Ka opened for the first time today"
2. "El Toro has a gap that the car jumps"
3. "Medusa is the only fun thing in the Golden Kingdom"
4. "I can't get a rollback, I'll go in the teal car. Only the blue car rolls back."
5. "Cellphone's signals mess with Kingda Ka's hydraulics."
6. "Nitro has a 230 degree drop."


One more to add

-(Points at GASM) "El Toro has loops?"

Hilarious stuff.

Keep in mind I heard this like a month ago:

A woman was walking around with her family right under B:TRs first drop and goes, "Oh I guess they took out Lightin' Loops.


I almost cried.

Lol, there was a big rumor about that around here not too long ago. I actually believed it for a while too. :P

While standing in line for KK opening day this season, a guy said, "I know why KK breaks down all the time. It's because the brakes get too hot!"

Or another time...

"KK is closed because some of the supports are missing!"

I remember one of my friends came into school one day and said the test dummies on KK returned with their heads missing. Everyone believed him. Of course, I knew that they never had heads to begin with... :ph34r:

Yesterday I heard a few:

(Watching El Toro run) Yeah it still goes through the loop over there

(Watching Kingda Ka) Yeah once it goes the through the loop, the ride is basically over

El Toro isn't even running both tracks yet (And yes he knew what Rolling Thunder was)



"I didn't like Kingda Ka, it was too fast"

"Kingda Ka sucks, its too short"


(heard walking out of bathrooms in golden kingdom) "top thrill dragster was better"

these people obviously dont have their heads on straight


Why are these so bad? That's alot of people's opinions.

Face it guys GP is the only way we get new coasters and keep our park running.

While waiting in line for El Toro:
"I heard from the DJ that if you rollback on Kingda Ka, they relaunch you at 168 mph. Dude I'm not kidding that's what he said!"


The Dj for Kingda Ka said the same exaqct thing. And Then a woman actually argued with me when I told her that was not true. She said "Well then how would Kingda Ka make it back over the top" I said "By Launching it 2-3 Mph faster" She said "But Wouldn't 168mph make sense" I said "Yah If you wanna die" She said "Whatever, Your Right" (real snotty, And Im the coaster enthusist)"

And then

Girl-"I heard they just extended RT and renamed it ET"
Me-"Yup, Thats why they start at different places and are different colors"

Wow this thread is great. The GP are f'ing idiots most of the time. I dont mind if they just dont know, but when they say stupid things to impress their friends, it gets funny.

Mine are from Six Flags Great America.

Man in line for Raging Bull: this ones as high as Eagle (Bull 202 ft, Eagle 127)
The GP in general have no idea what direction American Eagle is going even though they see it pull out of the station.

I have heard so much more, ill post as I remember.

Its also funny when GP use fastlane to bypass 5 minutes of waiting.
