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

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

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 and you just wasted like a few hours and that happened to me on valravn once.

I want to get on the ride, Not wait 6 hours for it - Adventurur2

Steel vengeance in a nutshell

2 People pushing and shoving

Cause of the crowds people trample each other half to death - Adventurur2

3 The rollercoasters are unsafe

Are you the most GP person in the world? You put yourself at risk from driving to the amusement park than riding the roller coaster. - coasterjunkie196

They are actually very safe. Malfunctions, injuries, and deaths do occur, but they're rare.

Alton Towers? Travelling Fairs?

Alton was a one time incident.
Traveling Fairs don't apply to standards. - Maddox121

My mom thinks that all roller coasters at Six Flags parks can kill me.

4 The smell of sweat

Well its hot out, But still - Adventurur2

5 Screaming children

Especially babies.

6 The prizes

I like the claw machines

It's a soft toy not stuffed animals. Stuffed animal is a dead animal that has been stuffed with material and is used as an ornaments, you see them in museums.

Its either stuffed animals or some ring that lights up - Adventurur2

7 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 employees

They act like they hate their job - Adventurur2

9 Sitting waiting for a show

Sea world in a - Adventurur2

10 Line jumping

The Contenders

11 The food

Dominos in a nut

Its like a mcdonalds - Adventurur2

12 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 gonna win but then the blocks HAD to fall on the last second...

13 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.

At the stands its like $200 - Adventurur2

14 When it rains

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

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

15 The rides that shut down

Merry-go-rounds always shut down - Adventurur2

16 Getting sick

Barfing - Adventurur2

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. - Gregory

17 Your face on ride photos

Very awkward

18 It is so hot

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

19 Being too tall for a ride

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

21 When rides are not open

At Disneyland I was going to ride Tower fo Terror at California Adventure but it was closed! >:(

22 Parking
23 Parents forcing you on baby rides

My mom forced me on baby rides at Disneyland, Disney World, and Six Flags Great Adventure! >:(

24 Big groups
25 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.
