But to tell you the truth, we had more problems with people not wearing clotes than just snobby teens. The no shirt rule was really not enforced at SFGA. Also, people seemed to be "trashy" there as well. Sorry for being so judgemental, but there are alot of people there that act really stupid. Never really see this at Disney World or Universal. I wonder why...
Good job to Six Flags though, however, many of these should go without saying!
What is "appropriate" shoes anyway?
Seriously, I think I'd institute a ticketing system. With all the new electronic systems and barcoded tickets and visitor info systems, I'd have park security walk the park like cops do neighborhoods. They'd be on the beat. If they caught you f'n up, they scan your ticket. Two strikes and you're out.
This rule would also apply to large groups, of 8 or more. More than five violations by any combination of members of your party and you're out of here.
Rules only work when everyone follows them. Otherwise, law abiders miss out while outlaws cut line, steal stuff, and horse-around.
Good for Six Falgs. Now, will they actually enforce it?
Anyway, like everyone else has said, the key here is enforcement. They can make rules and put up signs all they want, but will they enforce those rules. Obviously they are directed at those youngins (and some oldins believe it or not) that do all of these things in abundance at their parks now. Seems to me that they will have to make examples of a few people to really quell the problem. They never followed the rules in the first place, so whats to say they will now. Time to beef up the security staff. I hope that they are successful, because doing so will erase one of the things on the list that is wrong with Six Flags. If they are going to charge that kind of money for stuff, the customer experience needs to be a whole lot better. This is a step, provided the company follows through with enforcement.
I'm thinking the profanity and gesture issue has to do with talking/acting out, rather than subdued conversation within a group.
Anywho, I LOVE these new rules. Come on families, it's a better place for your kids! (At least it should be)
If I stand in for another person who went to get some water before they die, you're waiting behind two people, regardless of whether or not they were physically standing there.
I guess it's for the kids who see their friends in the park and then let them cut, claiming that "he was already here". I hate that.
Most everything has already been addressed in the comment section but I have a thought...If I am in line waiting for an hour or more for a ride and one of my kids or myself has to go weeeeee....
I would have my husband stay in line, go and return to the spot where he was by the time I was done. Its not a completely frequent occurance but I did do that at D-land a few times when we went on our 5 day visit a couple of years ago. It would be completely ridiculous to have to start all over at the back of the line when those lines are completely ridiculous sometimes.
So the place holding thing, although aimed at rude people cutting period, would tick me off if someone tried to enforce it on me and I was legitimately rejoining my family.
It's just like FastPass. Those people are ahead of you in line, whether they are standing there or not. If a person's spot is being held by their spouse, friend, whatever, and they come back in stand in front of you, nobody cut you in line. YOu're waiting just as long as you always were, because that person was already *there*.
It's like a ghost-man in kickball. There's a guy on second...even though there's no guy on second.
