Wordless Wednesday

It has been my experience that when hurricane winds are coming, you board up and take shelter.
You certainly don't pay $2 to stand around in them. ;)

You have a good point there ;-)

Janine Huldie said...

Too funny and having lived through two hurricanes (Hurricane Sandy the latest of the two), you definitely don't pay to stand in those winds! Happy Wednesday!!

Masshole Mommy said...

I went in one once and I came out looking like a scarecrow.

Robin said...

Ironically, I bet this is a huge hit with kids. Forget riding one of those four horses that go around in a circle at the front of the store. I want the wind machine. Please please please.

Almost Precious said...

I don't even like being outside on a windy day and I've watched weather announcers brace themselves while out reporting in hurricane force winds . . . always thought that was rather crazy of them. :D

Pat Hatt said...

lol first i've seen that, at least you won't blow far away

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

LOL I am with you on that. I hate a fan blowing on me, why would I pay $2 to have every inch of me blown. Ummmm ,,,, that doesn't sound good, does it?

JESSICA Cassidy said...

I saw this at the mall but my kids never try it :-)

Sandee said...

There's a market for that? Really? I wouldn't pay two bucks for that experience. Well maybe is I was drinking.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Self Sagacity said...

What does it do? And why? lol I have never seen one, and you're right.

Brian Miller said...

haha we had one at the mall
seriously, why do we turn our disasters into
joy rides? smiles.

Z @ Kicking Kilos said...

LOL good one Rosey!

On the Itinerary said...

$2? I wouldn't pay that either! LOL!

Mel Cole said...

Nyahahaha I saw one of these in our mall too. I want to try it one of these days. Left a comment here instead as I already left a comment in your other post.

stevebethere said...

Some companies woould do anything to make money if no one used it that would take the wind out of their sails ...boom boom!

Jessica Fiorillo said...

Ha, my thoughts exactly! :)

Faythe M.A said...

It still amazes me what some people will pay to do or experience! LOL
thanks for stopping by GrammyMouseTails Faythe

Stephanie said...

Oh my goodness! I've never heard of such a thing!

Kristi Maloney said...

Yes, I notice that there is no one in it and no lines or waiting....maybe not the best concept? :)

Elephant's Child said...

Years back on a particularly windy day one of our cats ran up a tree - and bit it. And I knew exactly where he was coming from. Windy makes me even more irritable. You really, really wouldn't want to talk to me after I had been in one of those things...

Kristie said...

lol! I wonder how realistic it is? Do you think they have rain pelting your face, debris flying by, etc? Maybe worth the $2 to find out? lol!

Emily Stephens said...

I'd probably spend the $2 to test it! I am that crazy!

Lawna Noe said...

Oddly enough, I think I would spend $2 to try it out. It seems like a crazy yet unique experience.

Launna said...

I am not one of the people who would want to try this... I live were I get the tail end of hurricanes and that is plenty enough for me :)

Have a really great day Rosey, thank you for your sweet comment :)

Erica Buteau said...

I think I'd spend the $2. There aren't too many hurricanes around here so it might be interesting to just check it out safely!

AMBER EDWARDS said...

They have one of these at the science museum in Utah! They are so much fun! And even funnier to watch the person stuck inside! lol

Scott said...

They also have one at the kid's museum in Birmingham (at least they did 2 years ago when we were there).

Pam said...

I've seen these before! I think there is one in our local mall.

Jenna Em said...

Ha! I don't think my hairstyle would stand up well to that hurricane booth!

Julie Corbisiero said...

Haha yes that is true! It is amazing what they call entertainment! Have a nice night and enjoy the rest of the week. Have a nice Easter too.
Julie

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

That's funny to think that you would pay to stay safe from a hurricane, even if it is in a cool booth like this one. ;)

~ Noelle said...

all of the simulators out there these days - i wonder who comes up with the ideas to do them...

Felicia Carter said...

Wow! That is for sure! I think I'll save my money :)

Ann Jones said...

My youngest hated that machine when my inlaws paid for it at the mall. He screamed :)

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

Haha oh gosh that is amazing.. Is it wrong I want to stand and watch someone have a go! x

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

What a funny looking booth, I would never have guess its for you to have hurricane safety

Kung Phoo said...

I think it would pay the $2 to just feel how the winds would be. i would not want to be in a real hurricane.

becca said...

Son and I got in one of those one time. Too Cool.

Sandra McCollum said...

Oh wow, I would love to try it. My kids would love it too! We have a tornado one in a museum here and they love it.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

I'd give it a try

Binky said...

I bet that would be pretty popular with teen!

Marni Mutrux said...

Too funny! I guess a lot of people haven't actually felt a hurricane.

Theresa Mahoney said...

I think they have something like this at the Science and Industry Museum in Chicago. They were only letting a handful of people try it out though. My girls wanted to so badly!

JT and Amanda said...

I saw one of these in our mall the other day and I thought, man we live in idaho, the wind blows all the time here, just wall outside! Haha.

Betty Taylor said...

I want to try one! It would be a great first! It would make more sense to stay away, but I love watching those news people standing out in the winds and getting half blown away.

Chasity said...

Lol. I've never been in one of those.

Pam said...

Ha! I think that would be fun to try out. Especially for those of us that don't live in hurricane country.

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

yeah! I agree! There's nothing fun about hurricanes! I have gone through way too many having lived in Jamaica, Florida and Houston

Anonymous said...

You pay the $2 so you can show the person that thinks they do not have to leave exactly why they do have to leave. I used to work with Emergency Management for storms and they had every person they hired do this for that very reason!

alissa apel said...

That is pretty funny!

I had to evacuate Savannah, GA when hurricane Floyd was supposed to hit. We got stuck in Macon, GA. A family took us in. It was horrible!!!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Yes, that is odd and funny. Why would someone want to hang out in a simulated hurricane? Great post for a Wordless Wednesday.

Thanks, Rosey.

xoRobyn

Melanie Burbage said...

That is...odd. Wow. Wonder how much went into making that thing.

Amanda Her said...

Haha...that totally cracked me up. So true!

Mommy 2 J.A.M. said...

HA HA HA my kids love this when we go to the discovery science centers. They beg to go in it. I have to agree, although I have never been in a hurricane although we get earthquakes here and they do have simulators for those as well. So I get your point LOL

Petro Neagu said...

That sounds scary. Who would want to be trapped in a "hurricane room"?

Cheriese said...

LOL! I can't believe this actually exists!!

mail4rosey said...

It's all glass, so if they step in, they've gotta know someone's going to come over to watch. :)

mail4rosey said...

Floyd was huge. We lived in Palm Beach when it hit, and we evacuated for that one.

Maddi'sMommy said...

Haha This is interesting. I bet they make bank off it though.

Paula Schuck said...

One of my daughter's had a birthday at the movies and there is a hurricane simulator there at the movie theatre. I paid the $2 to hear all the girls giggling and hollering after the movies from inside the hurricane simulator. It was hysterical! They loved it. You probably would;t get me inside one though. I don't enjoy wind that is strong enough to mess my hair!!

D.G. Hudson said...

Kids just like to have fun, and it's always more fun if other kids are there. As long as they understand the real hurricane is nothing to laugh at.

Heather Jones said...

That is hilarious!!

Kisa Johnson said...

I would think that this is probably similar to the one they have at Chuck E Cheese that blows the tickets around? Lisi and Var are too afraid to really go in it, but Sisi loves it!

Payal Bansal said...

ROFL :P

Mistee Dawn said...

Good point. But it would be interesting to experience the strength of one.

Healy Harpster said...

Pretty cool! I would like to experience it with my kiddos!

Anonymous said...

HA! I don't stand in them, either. We live in Florida...that's enough hurricane fun for me!

Felicia Franceschelli said...

OMG I have seen these in local malls, but I have never gone in one before! They look really cool!

Colette S said...

This gives thought :)
Not sure why I"d want to pay to experience one though... What next? an earthquake :)

Joanna Sormunen said...

LOL! LOL! LOL! That is so much fun! But in reality, some people do pay to experience hurricanes, earthquakes, crashes, etc. or at least of simulation of them.

Fabulous Perks said...

I have seen these a few times at 2 diffidently malls. It's been a whiles since I saw one of these machines.

Suzanne Lucas said...

I tried one of these at our local Museum of Nature - didn't have to spend $2 though. Make sure you have a hairbrush with you because the result isn't pretty. lol

Natasha Mairs said...

haha very good point. but I would to have ago and experience it without actually being in any danger

Ashley Gill said...

I've not been in a simulator like this, but it boggles my mind on why anyone would want to. I guess it does do good to know that you'll be safe and experience the winds..

Toni Patton said...

We have these at our mall. My kids love getting in them.
