    From what I've seen, the GP are the worst at Thorpe Park and Flamingo Land.

    I've had varied experiences here and there, not everyone at one park is a cretin and not all cretins go to one park. You'll find idiots no mater where you go, even at some of the nicest parks. However, places where I've noticed bad behavior seems to be more common than usual are in no particular order:

    *Six Flags Magic Mountain
    *Six Flags America
    *Dollywood (sometimes, mostly when it's more crowded)
    *Holiday World (again, see above)
    *Kennywood
    *Mt. Olympus
    *Busch Gardens Tampa's clientele wasn't necessarily badly behaved, but I did hear a lot of stupid comments tossed around the midway such as "oh no sweetie, we don't ride those you can break your neck on those things," and "they're the fastest, most agile animals on the planet, there's no way they can't jump out of that fence."

    This of course excludes parks on school group days. Because if there are school groups on a day when you go, no matter what the park is, it will be full of 13 year-old clarinet players with their fidget spinners climbing on queue railings.

    Port Aventura was easily my worst experience with the park going public.

    Never had a problem with Thorpe Park so far. I have had trouble at Alton Towers a couple of times.

    Another vote for Thorpe. I think it's got a little better recently though.

    Portaventura can be AWFUL. I don't know if it's the heat that makes rowdy squarky teens harder to tollerate?

    I've also noticed that (not really a negative comment but more of an observation) that there's no regard for personal space in German parks.

    ^There's no regard for personal space in most of the world.

    I absolutely second Mt. Olympus. I was not crazy for that park at all, and I read a google review for Mt. Olympus that said a couple was having sex in a hot tub, and customer service did nothing.

    EDIT: I see I forgot to click 'More.' The rest of the review... then around as if to make sure no one else saw, and ignored it. We then proceeded to tell management, who also did nothing. It should have been shut down and cleaned. We packed up and went to wilderness."

    Yeah, but in German parks you can often feel people breathing on you they’re THAT close. I’m not even talking obnoxious teens, just average run of the mill people.

    You must have amazing Sex Appeal.
    I can honestly say I've not noticed this in any of the German parks I've been to. Certainly not in every queue, and not something I remember commenting on.

    Was just about to say they obviously have a thing for you.
    Never particularly noticed it myself either.

    Never had that problem in Germany, with the exception of Heide, they tend to have the best behaved guests.
    Disney Paris is pretty bad (mainly the English tourists with entitled parents and their screaming kids) and I remember a group of girls at Walygator who stood so close in a queue that I kept getting their hair in my mouth. I didn't mind all that much...

    Yes, but standard notions of what is acceptable personal space -- such as how far behind the next person in line one should stand -- are definitely culturally conditioned, so they differ noticeably by country and region.

    Oh I'm well aware of that, was just calling out the unusual example of Germany being one of the worse ones.

    It's not that they're not well behaved, it just appeared to be more acceptable to stand REALLY close to someone. As in, if I shuffled forward half a foot, they would also.
