Is it possible to be the recipient of said vomit if you're riding behind someone on a roller coaster? Just curious.

Bryan is right about all rides, people have even thrown up several times this year on the Chap Cars and the Railroad. Maybe ole Draper pulling that oil stick a little too much.

My first day as a groundskeeper (yellow shirt, orange pants and hat) I got a message to clean up a "spill" at Happy 1 queue house at the turnstile. I got the mop and bucket, but not the wringer. It was vomit with hot dogs and I had to wring it out with my bare hands. Nothing makes me sick after that!

When I worked a double on Crazy Legs a kid there showed me how you could change the settings of the three rotations (normally forward, reverse, forward) to all the same way and GUARANTEED someone was gonna barf. Well, when his friend was riding there was a quite, very soft sound (puke hitting the ground) that he knew well and he stopped the ride fast. He had to get the gross stuff out of the inside of the car and paid for his sin.
That same day a girl riding the ride noticed my POW bracelet and it was for her dad. What a moment! The people you meet and never expect too.
