As Terry Thornton, vice president of Carnival Cruise Lines, described the Green Thunder water attraction the experience sounded all too familiar to one Gov. Martin J. O’Malley.
The Green Thunder is a new attraction that the cruise line plans on installing on the Carnival Pride which
operates out of the Port of Baltimore. Riders climb to a platform and enter a tube and stand on a platform.
“When you’re ready, the platform falls and you go down,” Thornton explained, adding that people seem to love it.
O’Malley seemed to have a little legislative post-traumatic stress moment.
“Sounds a lot like the House Judiciary Committee,” O’Malley joked.
Sounds like someone has had one too many bills drop into Chairman Joseph F. Vallario Jr.’s deep drawers like people in this video:
