Totally this for me - the other one is watching the mechanism that lifts up / moves down the seats in flying coasters. I could just watch the mechanism of Galactica all day.Watching station floors move:
- Turn table loading platforms - staring in a way that makes the turntable appear still, but the bridge over the top is going round it
- Floorless Roller coasters - watching the retractable floor disappear and re-appear
- To a lesser extent the slight lowering floor on inverted coasters but that's a bit old hat now.
Other guilty pleasures - bumping into a character at Disney. I don't mean queueing up for an hour to meet them (although Gaston is totally worth queuing for! He's hilarious). I mean turning a corner and, boom, there's Mary Poppins. Bonus guilty pleasure points here if its the ugly sisters - they are brilliant!
Speciality ice creams - "So this is just a normal raspberry ice cream, but because of this white chocolate character it'll look amazing on my instagram. Sure, take my 7 dollars"
Running in the completely different direction to the crowd at rope drop. You come into a part of the park with pretty much just you in it, and its like a little secret world
Any cool in/out of park transportation. The cable cars or funicular at Ocean World Hong Kong. The monorail at Disney World. etc.
