I think Muslims are worse than chavs at theme parks.

The teenage muslims are all chavs, and violent ones at that.... the families have more members in their party than drunks at a pissup and they insist in wlaking in rows and blocking up the whole ****ing path. They are the worst for queue jumping and if you say anything they look at you like thunder and acuse you of being racist....

Queue stoppers. Nothing can top this. A group of kiddos blocking the entrance, especially if the queue line is empty and especially if I go for the consecutive ride record which is hard to beat.

The thing I find most anoying is long que times. Second is people smoking in ques (especially if they are right next to me). I also find it anoying when people pretend to know it all but they dont. A guy in the NI que was telling his girlfriend how stealth went at 120mph and went upside at the end, (which he based upon the bunny hop having nets under it).

I only mind big queues when the rides aren't being run at full capacity.

If there is a HUGE line, but with all the trains running, I don't mind as it usually moves quickly.

Queue stoppers don't bother me atall, if anything its good when they eventually move as it feels like you've moved a lot in one go.

Its funny when people think they know everything...

Chavs suck.

Queue Jumpers simply annoy me the most. Just walking right on by... oh how I do so very hate them. But it was funny at GF III when those chavs tried queue jumping for rush and they managed to get right in the middle of the entire CF group... and everybody started shouting at them, especially Mark. He absolutley owned them!! :lol: HA!! They got owned by a load of coaster freaks and a man in drag!! <3

The people who sprint through the queue until they reach the back are rather annoying... you aint getting on any faster unless there's a non-existant queue darling.

The know it alls are way too funny!! Some of the worst I have heard are:

- "Corkscrew is actually the first ever steel coaster."
- "Stealth is the only coaster of its kind in the UK." "No it's not... Rita was built before stealth..." "No, I meant the kind that goes up and down" :lol:
- "Oblivion is the only completely vertical coaster in the world!!"
- "Did you know that pleasure beach are getting a 500ft coaster son? It was a rumour, but they denied it... I know that they actually are, I have a secret source!!"

Oh the comedy...

Touchy subject. However, i chose not to post about it as i thought that it would be interpreted as being a racist comment.

Anyways, i have only ever noticed that at Drayton Manor. And i agree with everything you said, as that is very much the case.

One time there was a queue jumper in the line for, I think S:ROS at SFNE. I just said to my sister, "Who do these fa***ts think they are?!?" Then he looked like he was about to cry at that comment. I didn't know whether to feel sorry for him or just ignore him. I've only heard one know-it-all, and that was at Cedar Point. One girl said Cedar Creek Mine Ride was voted best coaster in the world! :roll:

Also people behind you who stand really close

I was in linr for Raptor once last year, and some short kid was like attached to my friend...we got a good laugh out of it, because no matter how much we said, he wouldnt back off. As it turned out, him and his group of friends were line jumpers, they would look for breaks in the line and jump through the rails, before we knew it they were probably 10 minutes ahead of us.
 
Honestly, I once thought that people who thought they knew it all were annoying, but now I realize that I just correct them, making me look smart. It's also quite a good laugh, hearing the things people say.

I've never come in contact with a queue jumper either, so I guess I've been pretty lucky like that.

I guess I'd consider the most annoying thing to be long lines and broken down coasters. I remember I was looking forward for months to riding Dragster after my first time on it, and then when my last trip of the season rolled around it was closed. So I went from August of one year to like, the middle of summer of the next year before I got a chance to ride it again.

I hate wasting huge amounts of time in line as well, especially for a coaster that's not even worth the long wait.

Also, there's nothing like having a group of Valley Girls behind you in a line. So annoying!

So, I've voted for other.

I don't like people saying that they've been on Y ride over 10+ times that day, I'll do it for the two Nemmies myself, but don't go, 'OMG, I've been on it 10 times!!!11'...

I also hate people like Steven on here...Hi ;).

Queue jumpers we have found can be dealt with by smokers in the group delibrately puffing towards them, ain't that right Sam? :D

I think you should've put like a all of the annoying possiblities choice...But I'll go for other...

Oh damn it, I hate how queue stoppers is on there. Because sometims when I take pictures I stop the queue because Im waiting for the train to come around or whatever. Can that be forgiven?

I really hate queue cutters, I even went as far as trying to keep some black people from passing me in BTR's queue. And they were acting as if it was allowed and that they have more rights than I do. A$$holes.

Drayton Manor is really bad for that. There was actually a fight that came about in the G-Force queue because two asian girls. They claimed their mum and dad was saving them a place at the front of the queue.
We just let her past and didn't really think much of it but further up the line this other girl was having none of it. The asians then physically slapped the other girl around the face for standing up to her and then the staff came and broke up the fight. When the asians got evacuated from the ride the whole room burst into cheers :p

I dislike people that bring hot food into ride queues. Especially in indoor queue lines.

As for know-it-alls I actually love them! I find them hilarious when they go on about stuff that is obviously not true.

Jake mentioned a 'goodun' there, about the rides running low capacity.

Last August when I visited PBB, for the first time ever I saw PMBO's queue pen completely full, and they only had 1 train running, that actually made me angry.

I also hate "screamers." You know the people that sit behind you on a ride and dont shut their big fat mouths the whole ride because of screaming, and by the time you get off your ear drums a broken...I hate that...


I also hate the kind of people that throughout the whole ride are are screaming something like " we're gonna die" or, We're gonna crash..." that anooys me as well.

I mostly get annoyed in dark rides when people use flash photography, it's annoying and wish people wouldn't do it. Especially on Pirates of the Caribbean when they take photos, the whole atmosphere is suddenly lost.

Queue jumpers, don't care about lately, well in dlrp anyway. I end up stopping a queue to take a photo and end up having people walk in front of me. Don't get that bothered these days.

Enthusiasts whoring single rider.

Edit: Oh... and people who whine about queue stoppers. I'm one. To have some chav getting frustrated behind you is just wtf. Use your brain. It's a queue line, it's irelevent how friendly you get with the person in front of you. You are not going to get there any quicker. :roll:

I hate going to ThemeParks with people who hate Rollercoasters. When I was younger, I went on everything, but all of my friends were too scared to, I ended up spending a good hour a day in a park just standing around waiting to see if they were going to go on it with me or not. AHH.
So now, I ask people before we get there. I've turned many people into Rollercoaster lovers lol.

To be honest though, I don't think I've ever experienced queue jumpers, unless we're talking about when the queue is really short, and you're running to the station, and people start running infront of you.. I have short legs ok.
