so after debating which park to enter first, my sister @thexy-thehun and i went into california adventures because we saw the picture of d.o, chanyeol, and kai on california screamin’ on tumblr. we have annual passes so why not take the chance and hopefully see the boys. we weren’t expecting much just maybe a glimpse here and there of them and then be on our way. by the time we got there though, we weren’t sure where they would be but headed in the general direction of tower of terror thinking they might go, as we passed by tower of terror we didn’t see a crowd nor any exo members so we walked a little further before we saw them walk around the corner from the bug’s life area. i first saw kai ruffling his hand through his head, then saw kris walking next to him and as we whispered, “oh shit oh shit”, i immediately turned around with my sister. we started walking away from them towards the tower of terror line hoping they would go too, and soon we heard chanyeol and kris’ voices come right behind us.
we were shaking, so much excitement but we decided not to acknowledge them because we didn’t want to make them uncomfortable and wanted them to be themselves. it was…indescribable. for weeks, we were jealous of people at their fan signs and people seeing them perform and here they were, inches away from us. we couldn’t believe our luck.
-outside in line for tower of terror-
kris was always the center of them, kris talked sooooo much! chanyeol kept calling kris “duizhang, duizhang!” and they were all laughing. (their voices are sooo deep)
closest to us were kris, chanyeol, and suho for most of the time as they were always at the front of the group. kris, chanyeol, suho, d.o and chen kept bumping into us. they stepped on our feet a lot and kept inching towards us. d.o and suho look short in pictures when standing next to the other members but they were a lot taller than i expected! d.o was wearing the perry the platypus hat, and then chen wore it later.
suho and chen sang exo m’s version of mama together and my sister and i really wanted to sing along but we held ourselves back. suho also sang gd&top’s “don’t go home” he sang “jibae gajima, baby” and chen joined along for the “whooo” part. chanyeol rapped a new song (we assume it is) because he said exo a few times in the rap. *wish we could understand more korean
whenever i looked back, i was like looking right into chanyeol and kris’ chests. they were literally sometimes centimeters away and always bumping into us.
about half an hour into waiting in line, chen complained to suho and wiggled around “joon ma hao, paegoppah!” (i’m hungry!)
sehun put his arms around d.o’s shoulders in a back hug and they swayed back and forth a lot.
i met chanyeol, kris, suho, d.o and tao’s eyes as well as their manager hyung…awkward. lol (pictures don’t do them justice, they are x infinitely better looking in person and you can definitely tell the non kpopper fans noticed, some girls were whispering, “they’re so hot”)
i personally do not like tower of terror, it scares me even though i’ve been on it so many times. so my sister was telling me “it’s okay, it’s fun!” and then we heard kris say to the rest of the exo members, something like “yeoja(girl), gwaenchena (it’s okay), chaemisseo (its fun)” so i’m assuming he heard us and told the rest of the exo members that the ride was fun.
at one point i realized a fan behind them was taking pictures and i was in the background and i panicked for some reason and said “omo!” really loudly, i turned away from the camera only to see that suho turned away too.
* i tried voice recording since pictures were way too obvious and we didn’t want to make them uncomfortable. there’s a lot of background noise but you can hear them somewhat. will probably upload later.
-inside the building tower of terror-
(image not mine)
we walked in and immediately chanyeol took out his iphone and took pictures of the interior. then he tried to take a selca with all the members behind him and when he didn’t see suho in the frame, he shouted “joon ma hao, joon ma hao~!”. his hand reaches so high up…
while in line, i was showing my sister pictures of our baby niece and i was exclaiming “sooo cute!” and kris came up behind us and was looking over our shoulders.
they laughed at a disney staff member inside who was dancing around. we got towards the front where you go into the twilight room where they play the twilight zone video, and chanyeol yelled out in english, “let’s gooo!”
(image not mine: inside the twilight room with the video)
the room got completely dark and the t.v inside turned on. kris being the duizhang, put his arms wide out and gathered all the members into a huddle. they all had their arms around each other. left to right from what i could see was tao who was hugging sehun from behind and next to d.o who was next to kris. the rest were in front of them. they got close to the t.v…(like really guys, you are the tallest people in the room and you all huddle at the front?) i was right behind kris (and true to the other fanaccts, he smells really good).
the video starts playing and tao starts jumping around behind sehun, grabbing his arms and saying “busowo! busowo!” (i’m scared! i’m scared!) my sister laughed at him and he looked back at us. i feel bad but he was just sooo cute. he was clinging onto sehun. this kid who cries at ghost stories, i felt so bad for him going on this ride. as we were getting ushered out of the room, people were pushing and my sister bumped into chen, she said “i’m so sorry” and chen said in english, “oh no, it’s okay!” he was adorable with the cutest smile.
we left the room and walked up the stairs, the guys still right behind us. they started singing again not sure what song. we finally go to the ‘elevator’ to get on the ride, and when the staff asked my sister and i how many people, chanyeol thought he was asking them and he said “we 9! 9!” my sister and i were laughing so hard as we said “2.” we got split from them then as we had to take the other side since they had such a large party. (btw, lay was in line at first but he left later not sure when, xiumin, luhan and baekhyun weren’t in line either, just 8 of them and their manager hyung)
we got on and off the ride first and waited for exo’s picture to come out and here’s the picture we took!
lol at a picture of my sister in the black shirt we saw on tumblr. i was in an orange shirt but you can’t see me ): thanks to whose picture this is! since we weren’t able to take any pictures of ourselves.
part 2 to come later (:
