    I used to pull a similar amusement park prank when I worked on rides at Six Flags in Arlington. One particular year, I worked at the old Texas Cliffhanger ride. Riders boarded the cars from stalls and, once secured in the over the shoulder restraints, the cars were pushed backward toward the lift that carried them to the top of the ride. As the cars engaged the lift, they paused for a few seconds before being lifted quickly upward. It was a lot of fun to stand at the bottom and, during the pause, tell people “make sure you have your seatbelts on!” The riders would have that split second of panicked scrambling before the lift quickly whisked them upward. Most people took it in stride and I don’t think I ever received a complaint for doing it. It was all about looking for a good audience – kids without parents and teenagers were the best targets. Good times.

      I love that story. That little act of humor will be a memory for them they’ll carry on forever. I bet they think about you everytime they go to an amusement park.
