I have never dropped anything personally. I have seen a lot of change, sunglasses, sandles, and baseball caps dropped from other rides. The funniest thing I saw, however, was a wig fall off of a lady in front of me on a pirate ship ride. Now that was halarious!!!

An eye! Weird

Park maps and hats. The shirts are probably from people that wave them around on rides.

I have also heard of a glass eye (which was never claimed) along with a fake leg and all sorts of other fake body accessories. Retainers are something that I know many people have lost!!!

One Glass Eye was found at Blackpool pool Pleasure beach.It was in the pond under the log flume and the Pepsi Max Big One.They returned it to its owner.This is true though wierd.

Once at dusk i saw two people throw huge piles of computer paper off of S:TE. They all fluttered away at 400 ft and it was kinda a neat sight.

a du rag is used by us black guys.... it's what we put on our head to maintain a decent hair-do

When i went on one of those inverted swinging
<BR>ships, all of the chang i had in my pocket fell out. at SFFT, the Bugs Bunny White Water Rapids had hundreds on hats at the bottom of the last drop. It was really funny.

When in line for Titan, I saw a bikini top right under the first helix. I also saw someone throw a basketball from the top of Texas Giant. And I hear that park employees, during Fright Fest like to get pumpkins and go to the top of Texas Ginat and try to hit ducks with the pumpkins.

I had a friend who went on an S&S Turbo Drop, when they got to the top he put a quarter on his leg. When the ride dropped, the quarter flew up, and when the car bounced back up, the quarter hit the guy's leg and gave him a bruise, lol.

I was on an intamin first generation and I put a penny on each foot, one on my head, and three in each hand...we were on the car with two kids from alabama who gave us the idea...and when it droped, it started "raining." It was the funniest thing ive ever done

LOL, until I noticed where your at, I thought you might have been one of the peeps to witness my ex losing her's on Alpengeist. Going up into the Immelman, it somehow came out of her hip pack. Just glad it was a tampon and not the camera beside it. The agrivating thing was...we had to leave the park for her to get another....frustrating to say the least, but necessary.

once on Mind Eraser at SFA my shoe flew off and I didnt get it back, I had to walk around the park with one shoe. They wouldnt let me go on Batwing so I bought a cheesy pair of superman shoes that were made for a young child.

I was talking to a Ride Op for HYPERSONIC and he said when some lady was shot up the first hill, her cell phone came out near the top, continued to travel towards the sky, took about 20secs and came back to Earth, HARD! we have all seen things fall and break, this thing hit the ground and completely EXPLODED into a million pieces! KABOOM! he used this to stretch his point of "Use the lockers for all your belongings before you get on the ride."

Once when I was on Raging Bull, my dad dropped his and my brothers Season pass out of his back pocket. Luckily they got them back, and I still had mine safely placed in my wallet. That wasn't really weird though.

Montu - a prosthetic leg (we were in the row behind). The guy was laughing all the way back to the station. While they retrieved the appendage he just stayed in his seat and got a couple of more rides in.

that would be funny if when the idiot threw quarers off of S:TE they got jammed in the track and stopped the ride and he got stuck or it flew off the track and he died (but only if he was the only one on the ride. i know i wouldnt want to risk it with a 400 some foot high coaster/ thrill ride

DyingDutchman
08-24-2001, 04:47 PM
i was on Bawting and it was hilarious! when the train flipped over and started down the first drop, a pair of sandals fell out, a park map, a wallet, some change, a pen and pencil, a notpad, a pack of gun, a bottle of binaca, car keys, and something else that im not going to say..... but i think that you can guess what it is...

well the sandals didnt fall off on the drop but as we entered the turn the flew odd and landed on the station roof. i didnt notice they landed on the rood till i got off the ride.

Years ago, when I worked there, I remember an off duty cop lost his gun while riding Runaway Train at SFGAdv. It fell out of it's holster near the end of the ride when the track goes over the lake, and they had to find it in the mud. This was in the early 1980's before the park had metal detectors on the front gates.

I almost lost my retainer on The robin side of The chiller becuase i dident wanna take it out since i was ganna only be at the park for a few hours so i went on the chiller and forgot to take it off before the ride. and when i was laughing and screaming etc i clicked the bottom part out by mistake and anyone who went trou a retainer knows how easy it is to pop the bottom one off. anyways i cought it with my lips and in the picture you saw me ith my hand on my mouth and everyone was laughing becuase it looked like i was ganna puke. the nastyest thing i seen off a coaster was spit! if you wacth viper at SFGAdv go trou the first inversion you can see spit falling from the train. (gross)Oh yea and on viper i saw someone trying to hold there huge back back and they had a tight grip on the bag but they forgot to close the top of it and when it went upside down a few papers feel out along with a cell phone and some other stuff then i gusse the train ran if over becuase the time that train went trou the ride again it was lsuging trou the ride so badly.

while waiting in like for Hypersoninc XLC at PKD i was almost hit in the head with a lighter. Luckily i was watching the train crest the hill or i would have recieved a good blast to my noggin! the light exploded when it hit the ground, that woulda hurt if i got hit!

Its easy. Some people wear hats on the ride, and when they go upsidedown, it blows off. I think though some people throw stuff off on purpose.

I've seen a whole ton of change fly off the train on Face/Off as it went through the cobra roll. I also saw someone lose a hat on Hulk right as it went through the zero-g roll. I was nearby when it happened and someone below caught it. It didn't get caught in the net they have. I have no idea what that person did with it.

My dad lost his police badge on Magnum a few years ago. He had it in a shirt pocket and it had never come out, until that day. He told the ride op what he lost and the two went under the end hills to look for it but came up with nothing. A few days later, CP mailed him his badge, and since that, he hasn't taken it to an amusement park.

-"What is the best..........?"
-"What is the worst..........?"
-"..........versus.........."
-"What's your favorite..........?"
-"What's your least favorite..........?"
-"Which is better..........or..........?"
-"Which is worse..........or.........."?
-Any other superlative

I'm moving this thread to "Polls" now.

The only thing I ever lost was the top part to one of those squirt bottle fans on space mountain. I went to a gift shop after the ride with only the spray bottle and told them what happened and they gave me a new one.
