Most Romantic Spot In Toronto #9 (Reason #159)
The Scrambler at Centreville
The Scrambler is a staple to all amusement parks, fairs, street festivals and carnivals. Now the scrambler is one of my favorite rides, I always need to go on one whenever I see them, no matter how ridiculous the ticket amount may be. This ride can be awkward on a date, but there are romantic elements to it. The reason I say it may be awkward is because the heavier person has to go on the end, because the force or some physics term/ theory manages to pull the person on the right into the person on the left. That is why the recommend the heavier person goes on the outside, so that the heavier person doesn’t squish the smaller person. So beware! I warned you! However, once you got that awkward part sorted out and the ride begins the romance starts. Your date tries to stay on their side, holding on for dear life trying not to fall into your embrace and no matter how hard they try the force just propels them into your arms at which point you say something like “I’m a chick magnet” or “I knew you couldn’t resist my attractiveness it has it own gravitational pull” – yes I will acknowledge those do sound douchy/ cheesy, but I would still be like “oh so and so your so funny.”
However, if you want the ultimate romantic scrambler experience, I say start off by taking a trip to Centreville. Know just getting to Centreville is romantic because you get to see the beautiful skyline I described in Reason #95 or even afterwards take a walk through reason #64. Anyways Centreville will have its own post so I’ll refrain from giving you a history about it.
Now the scrambler ride at Centreville is not visible. Unlike other scrambler rides, this one is not placed outside. Rather it is this barn like structure which adds that extra romantic element.
Now when I was a child I was afraid to go on this ride because I didn’t like the dark, but of course all my friends wanted to go on it. So as we waited I began to notice a lot of teens and 20 something couples holding hands and making out. Now of course me and my friends being immature at the time were giggling and saying “oh I hope he’s got his cootie shot!” But it wasn’t until I grew up and began finding people attractive did I understand the reason people took their dates there.
Now the reason the scrambler is indoors, is because it wants top create an eerie sound and light show. Which it does. You go in to the structure and it is basically pitch dark and all of a sudden the ride starts and different colored spot lights go off and shine off what I remember as being a disco ball. To top off the light show experience they also play music! When I was there it was Video Killed The Radio Star by the Buggles. How romantic right? I mean you’re in the dark, there is a crazy light show, music from the 70’s and 80’s is playing and that force will pull your date into your arms in their first 2 minutes. I mean how much more romantic can a ride get? Therefore, the scrambler ride at Centreville is the
9th most romantic spot in Toronto.
