Danger!

This week’s Photo Challenge…Danger!

(the use of italics were the request of The Daily Post)

Last summer,  I went to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom (Allentown, Pennsylvania) with my boyfriend for a day of waterslides.  It was his first summer living in South Jersey, and he saw a commercial for the park and really wanted to go.  I had been there last in 1996, so of course I was in.

Around this (and every other amusement park known to man) there is always this one sign that reminds visitors about not line jumping, and the consequences of your actions should you choose to do so.

But, what they don’t prepare you for is that one line jumper that takes it a step further, and literally jumps the line.

As in, jumps over your heads while you’re in line.

Like really, this could happen…

Here we have a perfectly lined-up row of obedient people, in a line that would make Miss Clavelle (look that reference up!) proud of the masses.  And we have the rebellious partaker who refuses to conform.  Here he is, performing his greatest feat of hurdling over the heads of everyone else.  He’s a freakin’ rebel.

Why is this dangerous, you ask?  Because the greatest risk is not that of actually using a waterslide or riding a roller coaster.  Nope, not at all.  It is the impending risk that someone could possibly jump on your head to get a-head (see what I did there?!) of you in line.

That, my friends, is a bigger Danger! than anything else.

  1. Haha, that sign is hilarious! I’m sure some people could manage that…like they might be able to leap over kids in line or take advantage of someone who is short in height. You just never know people these days 😀 I’ve never seen a sign like that in Australia, and we are a pretty polite bunch and are polite at queuing up. Patient, too 😀

    Hope you had a good day at the park and on the waterslides. It looked like a nice sunny day 🙂

    1. I wouldn’t be shocked, considering some of the stuff I see online about the ridiculous lengths people go so they can have a special moment, or to just inconvenience others. LOL!

      Thanks! That water park was a blast. Not sure if I’m going to be able to climb all those stairs this summer (I partially tore my Achilles tendon in March, and stairs are a challenge, but getting easier), but pools make me equally happy!! 🙂
