here, but even if I lived near Knot's Berry Farm in California, I STILL wouldn't go on the Pacific Spin ride and here are three reasons why:
"The ride’s enormous slide sucks riders through a 132-foot long tunnel and at 35 feet per second, drops them 75 feet
and into a six-story funnel. About 5,500 gallons of water tosses riders back and forth in the funnel (that little yellow blob is actually a raft with FOUR people riding in it!)
before dumping them into a waiting catch pool." Per The Orange Register.
1) I'd have to wear a bathing suit,
2) I'm afraid of water, and
3) I'd have to weigh in before entering the ride. Granted I'd weigh in as a GROUP. The weight total doesn't show up - only three different colored lights: The red light means a group is too heavy. A yellow light means a group of up to four is under 700 pounds, light enough for one of the ride’s four-seat rafts. A green light means a group is under 400 pounds and can ride a two-seater. Riders are not allowed to go solo.
Only the ride operators will see the lights. No where did I read what they do if the group is too heavy. Banish them to the end of the line? Put them in a dungeon and starve them till they're the correct weight? Sacrifice one of the group members? What happens, exactly?
