Apart from that, I'm a perfect theme park angel.
Is fooling around with you spouse on a ride Illegal…
But I have filed it away for inclusion, somehow, in some future vote. Maybe for Valentine's Day. :-)
And if fooling around with a spouse was one of the votes, you would have another positive vote here. Granted, it was 15 years ago, but I haven't forgotten!
I would love to hear stories of that (since 12% say so)
And the only photos I've done on rides were at Disney. I seem to have a lot of "action" photos from Thunder Mountain. I have old shots of us on "Adventure Through Inner Space" climbing all over the blue ride chair vehicles. And, I believe I have a Space Mountain picture back from the 80's. Nowadays...again...I follow all the rules. I'm so boring!
I have never snuck into a park, but have fibbed when it comes to the age of my children when they were younger.
I do try to bring snacks into SF parks which is against there current policy, and we are usually succesful.
Thye only time I tryed to tape when i wasnt suppossed to was during a T2 3D show, but they yelled at my so I havent done that again and dont tape on roller coasters so I follow that policy well.
And I dont skip in line nad believe strogly in no skipping.
So as ive gotten older the lnly policy I dont follow is not bringing in some cookies/rice krispies into my local SF park.
I also must say that I get a kick out of looking around parks and rides and figuring out how to sneak into them. (Which I have never done, BTW.) I especially like playing "spot the sensor" or "find the security camera." It's an ex-employee thing, I guess.
Knowing how to get into rides and park areas also helps one know how to get *out* of them in an emergency, too. Which is handy information I like to have whenever I am in a park. So I'm always finding myself noting the exits and hidden doorways in parks.
Have snuck in food. My husband and my daughter have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and they get very dizzy and weak if they don't have something with protein in it to keep up their blood sugar. So we bring peanuts or peanut butter crackers, because sometimes a blood sugar drop comes on them and the food lines are longgggg.....
Also wouldn't butt in line, but have held place for someone in our party going to the bathroom and joining us at our place in line later. I guess that might qualify. Don't want anyone peeing themselves on a ride, but have tried to get everyone to go BEFORE we get in line, but sometimes lines are so long...
Sneaking in without paying is sorta like stealing in my book. As well as unfair to the paying customers.
This had an additional perk, as well, that we'd get 'Front of the Line' privileges for having someone handicapped with us. No-one was the wiser about our antics, and they definetely created some pretty fond memories for us.
Never taken a camera on a ride, though. Never really had the need to. Have, however, brought outside food into the park, usually in the form of snacks like crackers, but again, nothing too major. Never snuck into a park, either. I lead a very dull life. ;)
But on the weekend just gone a good mate and myself played tourist at Sea World here on the Gold Coast, with entry to the park with a couple of cast passes I had been given from a freind we took in bottles of water and a light lunch with snacks for the day and I was amazed at the amount of people walking around with small eskies that people had brought in with food.
When we lined up to come through the pre-paid ticket gate there was no fuss made nor inquisitive questions made as to the contents of my back pack nor the relatively large esky and its contents to the guy standing in front of us.
I must make further comment though we stopped for a coffee from the donut shop late in the afternoon as the weather set in to which I was suprised to get a coffee and two donuts for $3.95. which is cheaper than some coffee shops on the Gold Coast.
We had a good day being the start of the Queensland school holidays and mild holiday crowds. All except for the damn sea gulls they were everywhere and pooping over everything and everyone me inclusive, as I got pooped on no less than three times.
In Pooh we ran back and watched the Pepper's Ghost effect of Pooh's dreamy body flying in the air over and over, to explain how it worked to my older son. He was (and still is) interested in special effects like that and the ones in the Haunted Mansion.
On neither of those rides would it have been a safety issue like on a roller coaster or another high-energy moving ride so I don't feel too badly about it.
