Yes, we had a discussion on that last fall sometime when a "phantom" shot me directly in the head. I looked up and nobody was there. I usually like to lock eyes with the water sniper when we get hit. I like to feign shock & awe for the quarter-pushers; but I bear no ill will. I had expected to get wet by merely standing in line for this ride.Party Rocker said:Also, not sure if you know this CK but the blasters go off randomly if not in use so even if you guard them, they still may go off.
That may be true, but I see people pumping one quarter in after another to soak those poor folks trying to Escape from Pompeii and be as dry as possible. Those things look like they provide more entertainment than standing in line waiting for your turn on Donkey Kong with your quarter waiting patiently on the cabinet. Must be close to pure profit for BGW.Natoma said:...As for the water blasters, I simply see them as a waste of time and money. If it's hot, I don't really mind being sprayed, but I know some people hate it. I consider it money that could be well spent somewhere else in the park, instead of soaking random strangers.
Look at Pirates of the Caribbean, it's a water ride, but you don't get seriously wet.
