BO Banned From Theme Park

 

Updated : Aug 19, 2009

A Surrey theme park is banning visitors from putting their hands in the air while riding its rollercoasters in hot weather following complaints about body odour.

The new rule will apply when the temperature goes above 25C at the Thorpe Park in Chertsey where 'Say no to BO' signs will tell visitors to keep their arms down, reports the Daily Telegraph.

With temperatures expected to reach 29C today, managers expect an excess of perspiration as visitors queue to go on rides.

Wardens on the rides will also remind people to consider their fellow passengers and anyone ignoring the warnings will be escorted off.

Mike Vallis, a director at Thorpe Park, said: "We've found that when the temperature tops 77F (25C) the level of unpleasant smells can become unacceptable and we do receive complaints.

"Our rides are really scary and people tend to sweat more than normal due to the fear and anticipation they experience while queueing up so it can get really pongy.

"Therefore, we felt a ban in temperatures of 25C plus would be the best way to ensure our guests have the most enjoyable experience and aren't exposed to any unsavoury armpits."

Brendan Walker, an aeronautical engineer and theme park ride 'thrillologist', said people queueing for rides designed to release adrenaline would inevitably sweat more than usual.

Mr Walker attaches his uniquely developed 'Thrill Technology' equipment to riders to monitor their changing physiology, including heart rate and their sweat.

"When people are scared they produce more sweat due to the sympathetic nervous system kicking in," he said.
