Fish Bait

Darien Lake Water Park in New York

What happens when you don't have a healthy respect for nature...

SUBMITTED BY: Alyssa and Samantha Jamal   LOCATION: Darien Lake, NY (2009)

We’ve seen this fiberglass (?) shark dangling outside water rides at several amusement parks owned by different corporate conglomerates. We’d love to track down the shark factory, because we want one for our living room!

Most tourists are happy posing triumphantly NEXT to the shark. Not Alyssa (the photog) and Samantha (the model/meal). At the SplashTown Water Park on Darien Lake, the teenage sisters insisted on getting inside the beast.

“Samantha wanted to lift her feet up to make it look like the shark was holding her up, but when she tried that the shark started to bend dangerously towards the ground,” Alyssa reveals. “We decided that trying for that picture would probably result in a broken shark.” so we didn’t.

Smart move, girls!
