    Interesting thing happened on ToT

    So I went on ToT this weekend (for anyone counting, the girl who said she would never go on is up to 10 rides)

    Anywho......

    On my 8th trip we got on, ride was going fine, then on one of the rising up areas we go caught between the two top openings. the gal I was riding with and I knew that this wasn't supposed to happen. All of the college girls we were on with start freaking out. Our car starts to move downward very slowly, more screaming ensues...I shout for quiet and explain that the rides safety mechanism has kicked in and that is the way it is supposed to work....anyway, we get to the bottom and they rerode us all. It was kind of cool tho to see how the safety works.

    As an aside: I am gonna keep track of my rides to see how many times I can ride ToT this year!

    Last time I was on the ToT we had taken a group of school kids down and I had two girsl ages 10 and 11 sitting next to me and when we had sit down they started in with I cant breath Im so scared . The CM aske dif they wanted to get off and iI shook my head no and they were saying yes yes. He smiled and said to late and shut the doors. When we got to the drop part and came back up we passed for what seemed like mins then the rest of the cycle came. When we got off he was there smiling and asked the girls if httey enjoyed the ride they screamed yes and we ended up going 3 more times before closing

    Along the screaming girls line...

    Last week there was a generous, wonderful CM who put a group of girls (already fake screaming in the queue lines) through by almost completely by themselves in the elevator. After their elevator left, he assured us it would be worth the extra wait - and I quite heartily agreed! So, many, many thanks to that wonderful CM!
    Please move as far to the end of the row as possible. Stopping in the middle is distinctly unpatriotic!

    LOL. I've never been a screaming female either. I've found screaming does absolutely nothing to change the situation and muddles your thinking processes.
