I wanted to start a list of some of the things that happen at parks that annoy me. (They can also happen anywhere, but they are really annoying to me at a park) Feel free to add anything you wish. These are in no particular order...

1. Bouncing basketballs (I just want to take them out of mid bounce and drop kick them)

2. Smoking in line (or in general). I can't STAND smoking, why should "I" have to smell and breath someones second hand smoke? Ever notice that people hold their cancer sticks (cigarettes) away from themselves when lit but not puffing? Thats because THEY dont want the smoke blowing on them, but who cares about the people behind them, right?

3. The employees wanting to take your picture at the front of the park.
(this is REALLY annoying when the park is running one train on some coasters and claim there is staffing issues causing that) I counted 11 people a few weeks ago at PKD trying to take the guests pics as they entered the park. Yet all the wood coasters had one train that day...

4. Paying to park. You dont have to pay to park at the movies, mall, or most other things. Why at a park that you have to also pay a darn expensive addmission into?

5. Local fast food right outside of park being MUCH more expensive just because they are right outside the park, across the street and so on. Same goes for gas stations. They feel they can raise the prices because a park is near by.

6. Anyone notice the new annoying toy some parks are selling this year? Its a rubber ball about the size of a golfball that is connected to a long rubber string and they bounce them all around, swing them all around and hit thier friends with it and if you are not looking out for it, YOU TOO ! I want to take those things and pound the kids and thier parents with it until the yell UNCLE !

Thats all I have for now, I may post a few more when I can think of them. Anyone else have any to add off the top of your head?

I hate it when the people in line behind you for a rollercoaster are really weird. One time this guy was behind us and he kept talking about "ditching spoons" and "in paintball I'm on the 80 yard line" and stuff. I was glad I could finally get on the r

i get really annoyed that you can meet this totally awesome guy/girl on a vacation to a kickin' theme park. Say like Busch Gardens on the Apollo's Chariot. Be totally into each other for a week and then they leave. That annoys me and makes me sad. T

I spent 5 years working at Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Sea World, and there are a few things that *REALLY* piss off employees/

1. People who ask STUPID questions, like, "What time is the 4 o'clock parade?" DUH!!
