Well this should be a funny topic. Well the topic title should tell it all. Please though put atleast three things down so we don't get any spam in this topic. You know your addicted to a park/coaster when...

* The only spanish word you know is El Toro.

* You know the name of every ride op and they know you.

* You just sit down and watch the people get off a ride for it broke down.

* You imagine what would happen if the ferris wheel falls of its base and rolls into a lake.

* You know the name of roller coasters better then your relatives.

* You take out your season pass when you enter your house.

* Your school project topic is, "Boomerang Coaster, 3 or 6 Invesions?"

* You skip work or school to go to opening day.

* You make fun of broken rides.

* You and your friends make funny poses on your on-ride photos.

* You can take a quiz on your home park and get a better grade then for a test you studied for.

*When you learn things in Economics, Physics, Calculus, and even Psychology, and you can apply something about the amusement park industry into the concepts you learn* (i actually can do this, but they never ask for our examples)

*when you know your home park better than the back of your hand*

*you laugh at all the people looking at a park map at your home park*

*you make fun of people who don't know how to ride a certain ride to its max potential (i.e. Phantom Flyers at Carowinds)*

*you can only understand Physics concepts when applying them to roller coasters*

*you actually thought about trying to find out the Centripital Force of Delirium or MaxAir*

*you've calculated the frictional force of B&M vs. Intamin vs. Vekoma*

*you pull out $9.00 for parking at the grocery store*

*when buying a parking pass actually saves you money*

*you argue over who makes better hypers, B&M or Intamin*

*you silently laugh at people who say things like "Top Thrill Dragster is over 500ft tall and goes like 200mph"*

*when you have more than 5 roller coaster sites on your favorites list*

*when you have used your coasterboard screen name for a non-coaster related website*

*when half of your t-shirts have roller coasters*

*you go into shock when you find out burgers really don't cost $5 and that you get screwed at parks*

*when you go to McDonalds and try to refill your souvenir cup*

*when you are shocked to find that, elsewhere, usually refills don't cost extra*

*you stay from before opening to after closing*

*when you can tell which company made what coasters*

*when you keep track of what coasters you've ridden*

*you study coasters and parks more than you did for the entire year of english*
