    No Upside-Down But My Head Is Still Spinning

    | Orlando, FL, USA | Tourists/Travel

    (I work at a special effects show, which is experienced in the form of a walking tour. Our park maps don’t even begin to explain this, and our attraction isn’t a staple of the park, so most people have no idea what we are.)

    Guest #1: “What is this?”

    Me: “We’re a special effects show, experienced in the form of a walking, guided tour.”

    Guest #1: “But what is it?”

    Me: “It’s a show, like a stage show, only you’re walking through different rooms and it’s happening around you.”

    Guest #1: “So, what is it?”

    Me: “It’s… it’s a show. You’re walking through the building here, and each room is a different scene you experience. Your tour guide is performing around you.”

    Guest #1’s Husband: *approaching* “What’s this?”

    Guest #1: “I don’t know!”

    (Another guest approaches.)

    Guest #2: “Is this a roller coaster?”

    Me: “I’m afraid not. We’re a special effects show, only you walk through in the form of a tour.”

    Guest #2: “Oh, walking? So does it go upside-down?”

    Me: “…no. It’s all walking.”

    Guest #2: “So what’s that?”

    (The guest points to a nearby themed restaurant, which looks like a mountain on the outside.)

    Me: “That’s a restaurant.”

    Guest #2: “Does it go upside-down?”

    Me: “…No.”
