Donkey in a hat
Not a slight against the effort, creativity or work ethic of those performing but I find almost parks' roaming entertainers are unbearable cringe. Not in a good way, either.
You can see the anxiety levels of those crossing the Thorpe Park bridge upon exit just trying to get it over and done with as the latest gimmick is to have entertainment staff cheer and dance in people's faces as they leave...
By extension; the stage shows are drossy and largely unattended / promptly walked past at both Thorpe and Alton Towers. Even the children these endeavours are aimed at are raising their eyebrows.
These personnel would add greater value in other roles, surely?
I fully realise this makes me sound a killjoy.
I demand you make 2 exceptions to this rule. The first is for those three dudes in orange jumpsuits that roam Port Aventura playing musical wheelie bins, cos they're fab.
The second is for that 4 piece German Oom-Pah band that plays outside the entrance of Hansa Park as you go in. Instant smiles.
The third (yes I know I said there were 2 exceptions but I've just thought of another) is for the acrobats twirling about on ribbons high above the turnstiles at Efteling in that amazing entrance building.
