Top Ten Worst Things About Theme Parks

The Top Ten

1 Queues

OH MY LORD. Once I was going on a ride that was 2 hours and RIGHT WHEN I GOT TO THE FRONT, it shut down.

At least I got a FastPass. All the others were standing in that line for three hours for just the ride It’s A Small World - IceBearRules

At Disneyland I waited 2 hours for Radiator Springs then it broke down.

Definitely the worst part. But, it can't really be avoided unless amusement parks start putting a limit on the number of people that they let in, which I think is a really terrible idea.

2 Overcrowding
3 Fast-Pass Queues

Disney's fast passes are free, but Six Flags' fast passes cost additional

Yeah having to pay even more money just to bypass rides can be a pain.

How is this a bad thing? At Disney parks, this tool saves you SO much time! Why is this here?

4 Expensive Food

At Disneyland, a corn dog and chips costs $8

In six flags, a hamburger costs over ten dollars. What? - Not_A_Weeaboo

5 Rude Workers
6 Faulty rides

Lightning Rod at Dollywood is a fine example of this. - railfan99

7 Animal Abuse

Seaworld go die!

Oh look, PETA MEMBERS! I agree Seaworld should take better care of their animals, but Disney actually takes great care of the animals. Plus, releasing animals into the wild is risky as they could become man-eaters, die because they don't know what to do to survive in the wild, or be killed by poachers! But apparently, vegans are so high and mighty and can do no wrong so apparently they know best. :rolls eyes:

Animals are treated badly at seaworld and other theme parks

Seaworld takes care of their animals, however Marineland in Canada does the opposite.

8 Disappointing Rides

What,u don't like rollercoasters,not even fury325?

9 Expensive Admission

Not all theme parks have expensive admission. Disneyland's admission is one of the most expensive at $100. Most of the theme parks I have been to, like Dorney Park, Six Flags Great Adventure, and Hershey Park are affordable at $30-$40 for admission, and it's cheaper when you have those discount coupons you get from fast food places. Most boardwalk amusement parks I've been to such as Steel Pier in Atlantic City, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, and Morey's Piers in Wildwood have free admission.

10 Vomits

This should be number 1, vomits are everywhere in the theme park! urp - malamJONES

The Contenders

11 Rides that cost money

This is why my cousins and I bought all-day wristbands at the Santa Cruz boardwalk

12 Too much focus on little children

Yeah like that's why Gulliver's World theme parks are only for children aged 3-12. Oh the nostalgia though.

Disney parks in a nutshell

13 People in mascot costumes

A lady from my hometown allegedly got groped by a guy in a Donald Duck costume on a trip to Disney World once. It was all over the news.

Did you know, your not Hugging Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Cinderella, or Olaf, your hugging a stranger in a hot costume!

That's scary

Well, it depends. Marvel Mcfey from Astroworld is awesome and so are Dori-Chan and Ran-Chan from Nara Dreamland. BUT ALL OF ALTON TOWERS' MASCOTS ARE SCARY!

14 Roller coaster accidents

-cough cough- ALTON TOWERS -cough cough-

This is why my parents hate these

ALTON TOWERS ALTON TOWERS ALTON TOWERS! The Smiler was a bad idea from the start and Wickerman [the wooden coaster with FIRE EFFECTS] is a disaster waiting to happen! Even Action Park is laughing at Alton Towers at this point/

15 Inaccurate maps
16 Parking Fees

I paid $7 to park at Six Flags Great Adventure

Parking fees are not fun. At all. - Gg2000

17 Frozen Characters Are Everywhere At Every Disney Park

I saw Frozen characters not only at Disneyland, but also in Vegas

I Don't Hate Or Like Frozen But I'm Sure We're All Tired Of Seeing Them

18 Only Two or Three Attractions Are Good

Canadas wonderland in a nutshell

19 Fast Rides

Cough cough Seven Dwarfs Mien Train cough - ThemeParkChasers

So...I wait for 3 hours for a ride that feels like it lasts 3 seconds. Wait WHAT?!

20 Not being able to pick your seat

"Go to row 6."

21 Too hot

Just get a cold drink then. - InfinateSuperstorm

22 Putting IPs in their attractions

I really want to see the new Star Wars lands at Disney.


I heard rumors that Inside Out will replace Journey Into Imagination and to say I am unhappy is an UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE CENTURY! LONG LIVE DREAMFINDER AND FIGMENT!

23 False Advertising
24 Bad Layout
25 Crowded With Rides
26 No shades at queues

There is shade at the queues at Universal but not at Disneyland

27 You get banged up
28 Certain rides may not be available/closed

(at Disney's California Adventure)
Me: Come on guys, let's ride Tower of Terror!
(My cousins, sister, and I went to ToT, finds out it wasn't running that day)
Me: AW MAN! :(

29 When you want to go on thrill rides but you have manipulative members in your party who insists on forcing you on the kiddie rides instead

(at Disneyland)
Me: Can I ride (insert awesome ride here)?
Mom and sister: No!
Me: please?
Mom: We don't want to ride that
Me: I'll ride alone, then when I am done, I'll call you and we can meet up somewhere. Deal?
Mom: No.
Me: >:(

30 Pay-per-ride rates at free boardwalk amusement parks
