There’s a famous lady from Splash Mountain who eventually came to be known as “Angry Splash Lady.” Maybe you’ll see her on this list, maybe you won’t. This family, having enjoyed the image, all decided that they would try to do their best impressions of that famous lady (except for the lady in the first row. We don’t think she was in on it).
All three of them give us some goofy faces to enjoy, but we think that the kid in the second row has the best scowl out of the three. It was, apparently, his idea. Dad’s face looks too much like his kids made a mess, and the girl in the back has a face that makes us think that she’s about to accidentally swallow an entire almond.
All on Her Own
We were a little confused by this picture the first time we laid eyes on it. It seems like a perfectly normal pic... but then we spotted the lady in the third row. Arms crossed, forehead wrinkled, jaw clamped shut like she’s giving someone the stink eye. Who could it be that deserves such a look all the way through the camera? Somebody who works at Splash Mountain?
It turns out that the husband of the woman that we’re focused on didn’t want to go on the ride with his wife. And it’s not like she was about to enjoy the ride on her own! We’re going to guess that she’s gone on this ride more than once since she knew exactly where the camera was going to be. And she knew how to hold her pose.
Wouldn’t They Be Occupying Themselves?
In a move that will confuse absolutely nobody who knows anything about how the Occupy Wall Street movement got started or ended up, the people carrying the signs haven’t thought this entire thing through. The guys who are holding up signs seem to be mad at themselves, since they’re taking a staged photo on Splash Mountain, which is turning into one of the more popular rides on this list.
All three of them had hand-written signs to hold up during the photo. We don’t know if the guy in the front is in on it, but it looks like he’s also trying to make his own little photo. Also, we guess that these guys just want to go on Splash Mountain over and over until they...capitulate to their demands?
Getting Used to It Young
Roller coasters aren’t always a kid’s favorite thing. They can get really tall! And also, at the same time, go really fast! This can be a lot to handle. It looks like this little guy might be taking his first ride on the rails. Thankfully, he’s holding tight to both his date and the lap bar that is keeping him locked down.
It probably also isn’t the craziest ride in the world – that kid looks like he’s, what, five? Maybe? Maybe a short six? He’s not going to be riding the Death Spiral or anything like that. But get your kid on baby’s first roller coaster early, and they’ll be ready to get onto some of the more fun stuff before too long. Roller coasters have that kind of effect.
A Long Way From Pride Rock
We’ve been told that every year this guy goes on this roller coaster and takes a planned photo, and this was the best one. Instead of just enjoying the roller coaster like the rest of the passengers, he slipped on a mask to make him look like Rafiki and held up a little stuffed animal that looks a whole heck of a lot like Simba from the start of “The Lion King.”
The photo was taken on “Magnum XL200,” a roller coaster at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, hence the garment that says “Browns.” We wish that this picture had been taken at a Disney theme park, but we guess that not everything can be perfect. Check out the grip he’s keeping on the toy there – that thing isn’t going anywhere.
