In the news: Theme Park Bans Smelly People

Average: 3 (18 votes)

Rollercoaster riders at an English theme park are being banned from putting their arms in the air - after complaints about body odour.

Using the new rule, signs will tell visitors to keep their arms down and 'Say no to B.O.!' (Body Odour).

Wardens on the rides will also remind people to consider their fellow passengers and anyone ignoring the warnings will be taken off the rollercoaster. Those who continue to do so will be asked to leave the park.

One of the park's directors says the rule is necessary because, "our rides are really scary and people tend to sweat more than normal due to the fear and anticipation they experience."

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