Do Not Adjust Your Monitor ...

Power outage leaves dozens of riders dangling upside down for 30 mins. ... she is supposed to be upside down LOL

This event didn't happen here, but I heard about it on the radio and I got a neat visual, so I decided to do a page on it.

These poor people were hanging upside down for the roller coaster for 30 minutes. Not many people know this, but my first job was working at
Worlds of Fun in Kansas City, MO. The first summer I was a groundskeeper sweeping up trash LOL I started out in the Scandinavia section and got to listen to polka music and smell funnel cakes all day LOL

They later moved me to the Orient section ... at least the music was better LOL The main attraction was the Orient Express roller coaster. I discovered people are fools when it comes to roller coasters. One day it broke down at the hightest point naturally and people had to climb down several stories. People waited over an hour in line on a rainy day to get back on a roller coaster that had just broke down LOL

Oh yeah ... and my uniform was a little pair of kelly green short overalls and a green plaid shirt. I had fun working there, but I do not miss those barfy uniforms ... it's hard to look cute wearing something like that LOL
