    Oh totally. The puke that really smells like puke. And it's not like you can wash that shit off ALL DAY.

    Also, I love that you call them elephant ears, too. Must be a Michigan thing. Everyone here looks at me like I'm nuts when I say it (which admittedly isn't too often lol).

    would. not. want.

    Another Windseeker ride stalls; riders stranded for hours

    "It basically got stuck."
    - Knott's Berry Farm spokeswoman Jennifer Blazey


    KTLA


    (September 19, 2012) - At Knott's Berry Farm theme park in Buena Park, California, a circular swing ride called the Windseeker stalled, leaving twenty people stranded 300 feet in the air for nearly four hours. Park officials said that the ride's safety system engaged, causing the ride to come to a complete stop.

    The evacuation, which took three hours and forty minutes, is one of the longest on record for any amusement ride.

    Riders were given a free t-shirt.

    On September 7, the same ride stalled and left 15 people stranded for about three hours.

    In July, the Windseeker ride at Carowinds theme park in Charlotte, North Carolina stalled and left 25 riders stranded hundreds of feet in the air for nearly three hours.

    In June, the Windseeker ride at Cedar Point Park in Sandusky, Ohio left 29 riders stranded 150 feet in the air for more than an hour when it stalled.

    All six of the Windseeker rides operating at parks throughout the Cedar Fair chain were ordered closed temporarily by Cedar Fair, pending an internal investigation.


    KNBC


    UPDATE: It has been determined that the ride system was not defective and that the stalls were not caused by a design flaw or other flaw. The ride systems were found to be operating as designed

    Elephant ears look like ginormous beignets.

    Hmmm. I don't know elephant ears. We have Frybread, but maybe it's something different?

    People from Michigan knew they were elephant ears. Other weirdos said "fried dough," "funnel cakes," or "popovers."

    I remember when I was a little kid and went on this ride at the fair with my mum and brother, and I don't remember what it was exactly, it like raised up or something, I wanna say ring of fire... Well, all I remember is being up way up in the air and freaking out cause it seriously felt like I was slipping out of my seat. It was awful.

    The only roller coaster I've ever been on is like one of those real mini kiddi ones that are close to the ground. I don't think I can ride a real time coaster...I really don't want to risk plummeting to my death or getting limbs cut off. I was watching those vids posted earlier and it looked like those people's arms could just get ripped off at some points...

    And someone mentioned sky-diving, I think that'd be incredible fun and insane and everything-but what if that fucking chute doesn't pull out?! I'd only feel safe if there was some flying hippogriff ready to save me at a moment's notice.

    But it isn't a funnel. It's wide and flat like an ELEPHANT EAR.

    The polls are in. Case is closed.

    I come in here thinking there's an update on the poor lady that fell off the roller coaster and people are arguing about the technical term for elephant ear?

    Also M JOY the pic you posted looks like a funnel cake to me.
