Do you have any theme park guilty pleasures?

Are we sure they’re not just a big Bobbejaanland fan? They answered the Fave Coaster and Fave Park questions validly (listed as “typhoon” and “bobbejaanland” if you’re wondering), which the casino-advertising people didn’t (upon closer examination, I realised that they had their fave coaster listed as “Fave Coaster” and their fave park listed as “Fave Park”).

You clearly didn't browse through their other posts. It was obviously a spam account, though in this case I think they were genuinely human, rather than a scammer. Basically just a dickhead who fancied a troll.

Okay here is some of mine:

Stampida:
This is an awful woodie- it has crappy pacing, it crawls especially in the morning. It is usually stupidly rough, but it was one of my first big coasters when i was younger (we took holidays to Salou). I do have nostalgia for it, even if it is very meh.

I have a lot of love for Europa's treasure chest of dark rides, even the ones that are more cheesey than good.
Bench is a great example, it is very cheesey and outdated. But i always ride it when i go to Europa, because its so cheesey its charming. Geisterschloss is a similar story.

I also love secretly listening in to GP conversations on rides in queues. And shaking my head when they say the ride stopped right in the middle of the loop and a UFO had to come and evacuate the guests off.

This. I love seeing what coaster non-enthusiasts like the best, and more often than not, most enthusiasts would agree with them!

Something else I like is the smell that follows you home after spending all day at a theme park, especially if you ride a wooden coaster. I know it’s just a mix of grease, decades-old foam from restraints, and a million other people’s sweat, but it takes me back to the theme park in my mind.

Classic flat rides, especially troikas and swing rides. They're still a fun, relaxing break from big thrills, and there's the nostalgia.

This one is maybe more of a fair guilty pleasure, but deep fried sweets. Whoever first decided to deep fry chocolate chip cookie dough is an evil genius.

My guilty pleasure is the Pandemonium clones, the ones in Fiesta Texas and SFOT are the ones I've ridden... I am a sucker for spinning rides and the dizziness feeling, and even tho these things aren't that intense I always love a good spin and these are priorities for me always because of that feeling
My other guilty pleasure is the philly cheesesteak sandwich at Johnny Rockets, also in TX Six Flags... dang deliciouuus
