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. ;)

  1. 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!!

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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

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

    ReplyDelete
  6. 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?

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

  8. 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. ☺

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  11. $2? I wouldn't pay that either! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  12. 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.

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

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

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

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

  17. 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...

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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!

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  21. 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 :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  23. 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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  27. 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.

  28. 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. ;)

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

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

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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  34. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  36. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I bet that would be pretty popular with teen!

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

    ReplyDelete
  39. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  40. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  41. 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.

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  45. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  46. 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!!!

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

  47. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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

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

    ReplyDelete
  52. LOL! I can't believe this actually exists!!

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

    ReplyDelete
  54. 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!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. 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.

  56. 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!

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

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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  62. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  64. 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

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

    ReplyDelete
  66. 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..

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