Top 10 Worst Things About Amusement Parks

We love them all, but places like Six Flags, Sea World, and Disney World have bad points
The Top Ten
1 Long lines

Yup, easily the worst thing about amusement parks! Especially, it can be worse if you are waiting so long in a line and almost there, except the ride or roller coaster has broken down. You just wasted like a few hours, and that happened to me on Valravn once.

Even worse is when the ride breaks down when you're almost to the front...

2 The prices

From my experiences:

Disneyland admission: $100. Dorney Park admission: $40. Six Flags Great Adventure's admission: $60. Hersheypark admission: $40.

Even though I used discount coupons at Dorney, Hershey, and Great Adventure, the price is $30.

Good thing that the boardwalk amusement parks that I've been to (Casino Pier, Santa Cruz, Pacific Park, Gillian's, Playland's Castaway Cove, Trimper's, Morey's Piers, and Steel Pier) have free admission.

6 Getting stuck on rides

Once, my dad and I got stuck on Steel Force at Dorney Park. It was on the lift hill. It only lasted a minute before it was running again.

8 The prizes
9 The rollercoasters are unsafe

No. The roller coasters are very safe. You have a far more likely chance of dying on your way to or from the park and are more likely to die while fishing, get hit by lightning, and even get into a plane crash than die on a roller coaster.

Now, they say you should be in good health and meet the height requirement, and that's why they have those warning signs at the entrance of each ride.

The chance of getting into a car accident is one in 6,000. The chance of getting hit by lightning is one in 1,500,000. The chance of getting into a plane crash is one in 100,000,000. The chance of dying on a roller coaster is one in 1,500,000,000. Roller coasters are extremely safe.

10 Unfair games

Arcade games are basically gambling for little kids. Also, once my cousin and I played this stacking game that looked super easy. We played it because the prize was an iPod Touch. We were confident that we were going to win, but then the blocks had to fall at the last second.

The Contenders
11 Line jumping
12 Parking
13 The employees
14 Sitting waiting for a show
15 People who don't follow directions on a ride.

Especially people who pull out selfie sticks and other banned items. Those items are banned for a reason.

16 The rides that shut down
17 When it rains

When I went to Disney World, it rained once. We were at Animal Kingdom, and it started raining, so we ran into a theater.

Also, another time we were at Steel Pier (in Atlantic City, New Jersey), and there was a huge downpour with wind that temporarily shut down the entire pier.

19 Getting sick

Well, don't go on the crazy rides if you're prone to getting sick. That's one of the reasons they have those warning signs in front of the fast rides.

20 Assigned seats
21 Big groups
22 The food
23 Unsupervised children
24 It is so hot

Sometimes, even sunscreen doesn't work. I got a sunburn on my leg at Hurricane Harbor in New Jersey and a heat rash at Disneyland.

25 Being too tall for a ride

Being too small is one thing, but being too tall can really suck sometimes.
