Garda Theft Auto.My mum, completely unprovoked, suddenly did the most spectacular u-turn you’ve ever seen in the middle of this busy motorway, put her foot down like mad, and started driving in the direction of the Gardaland road signs. My dad and older sister, for completely inexplicable reasons, suddenly flew out of the car through some sort of ejector seat mechanism. I looked at my mum, concerned that my dad and older sibling had randomly disappeared from the car, but she didn’t look fazed at all; she said “F*** ‘em; we’ll come back for them later”. At this point, she suddenly started driving like a rally driver; the speedometer was at well over 100mph, she was weaving in and out of traffic, weaving between lanes, she was jumping over cars… this was some insane driving, particularly given that my mum is a very safe driver in real life! I asked her why she had suddenly changed tack and started driving crazily, and she said “Son, you and I need to go to Gardaland together!”. We then continued to speed down the road together in what was by far the most insane piece of driving I’ve ever experienced… it was spectacular, but insane!
We eventually arrived at Gardaland and got out of the car… but not before she sped into the car park and did a load of donuts around it, still travelling solidly over 100mph. She then stopped rapidly with a perfectly executed handbrake turn, and we got out of the car right outside the entrance. None of the Gardaland staff even batted an eyelid at the fact my mum had just sped into the car park, drove at an insane speed round it or had parked somewhere that definitely wasn’t a parking space, so we had a speedy and efficient entry process.
Annnd I'm dead. See you in the afterlife!Eventually, we found the special toilet… it was in this Tudor house, and we had to walk up a tiny ladder and crawl through these tiny spaces to use it. She used it and walked out saying “10/10; totally lived up to the hype! I’m happy we came to this park just for that!”. Then I went in… and it was like one of those Medieval toilets you see in old castles, where it basically consists of a hole that drops directly into a river.
Ayo found the next thread I'm going to makeHad a CoasterForce dream about a thread that was basically "what shoe/fashion brand best describes a coaster?" and it was basically comparing coasters to the design styles & reputations of companies like Nike, Balenciaga, Reebok, Lacoste etc. and people were typing extremely detailed descriptions on why they think that coaster best represents them.
One user posted about 7 coaster-brand comparison in one post and it got 9 likes, and in such a short time the thread had generated three pages of discussion proving to be massively popular.
That genuinely sounds like a good idea - minus the final bit.Come to think of it, the park also did a “Haunted House or Duel?” quiz, where they played pieces of music from each ride and we had to guess which ride it was from. Although the answer was displayed prominently on the screen for each track, which kind of defeated the object…
