So, I once worked at Crystal Palace. And so did my brother, Andy.
Well, we found out that it's deffinately not a safe place to work, none-the-less let kids on and we wanted to share that with you..
DANGERS: CARISOL: I once saw a kid who tried to get off the pony and did a face dive onto the floor. WAVE SWINGER: A cell phone dropped out of a guy's pocket and hit a man in the head. He had to go for stitches.
JUMPINSTAR: A little girl got her fingers stuck in a small hole when the attentend told her to lift her arms, to unbuckle her seatbelt.CONVOY: Too many times have I seen kids try to jump off that thing before it ends. They also keep trying new ways to get on. One child tried to go around the back side of the vechile where customers should not be. I saw the attendant grab a hold of the child, but not before he put his foot into the whole that drags the cars along the tracks and hurt himself. GOLFING: Working there one day a man came up to me asking for bandaids. His son by mistake hit him in the head with the club. I had to call an ambulance. He needed stiches badly.
SKYFLYER: Too many times kids try to turn around on the ride, stick their heads out the holes when theyre not suppose to and while it is moving, the attendant cannot tell them to stop.
SUBMARIN: If the powergoes out and the sub is in the air, it stays there until some men and women can manually crank it down. VERY HARD TO DO. My brother was working on that ride when the power went out quickly and came back on. the ride stopped mid air and nothing would bring it down. The little girl onthe ride got scared, leaned out the window and fell. My brother semi caught her, semi not.
The RED BARON: Kids like to stick their fingers on the hot lights and in small holes they shouldn't. things that should be prevented.
PLAY HOUSE: Scratches and falls is usually what i see. espcially with that little rock climbing thing for kids. it's more dangerous than it is good.
TRAIN: Set belts unbuckle easy and fall onto the tracks.
SSR machine: Caught fire a few times and i was too short to reach the hadle while it was on. They had to remove it from the playground.
KRAZYKARS: Seat belts do not fix properly. Very bad back and neck injuries can take place there.
LASOR RUNNER: Had a few kids come running out crying. They were being bullyed. Steped on and pushed around. One kid banged right into a wall.
Very bad for anyone that is seizer prone.
ROLLERCOASTER: Whip lash. and there was a boy that tried to get off and the stupid attendant wasnt paying attention, but the seatbelt wasn't tight enough anyways so he squirmed out. wasn't even all the way out when ride started and he was half way in/half out. almost fell off rollercoaster till someon caught him. She was fired on the spot.
OUTDOOR BUMPERS: Acid from the battery leacked and ate apart my brothers pants. When he tried to get the company to buy him a new one, they threw his pants out when they found out he didn't have the reciet anymore (instead of givng him his property back so he could disopose of it himself) aka hide theevidence of the acid burns in the pants.
The ATTENDANTS: Usually day dream and tak to friends. Half of them don't look to see if the child is at a safe height to go on the ride.
TICKETS: If you buy tickets and you realize your child is too young and doesn't like the rides and is too scared, you are not likely to get your money back. Bracelet's the same.
