Six Flags GoPro Policy

Where is the official park policy concerning secure recording on rides at Six Flags.

I have an important question concerning camera use in parks. I am familiar with Disney's policy, and they do a great job informing you what you are allowed to record; however, other parks are not. I currently have a GoPro camera with a chest mount with redundant safety tethers, and i cannot get information from Six Flags parks. Their website says no loose articles, and that is extremely important on thrill rides. It is very important to not allow guests to record or take pictures on a roller coaster due to the risk of injury and delay of a ride. Nevertheless, there is no information concerning secured items. Also, any attempts to contact park management by email or phone has been futile. I do not want to violate any park rule, but I would love to document my family on rides in a safe manner. Previous attempts to talk to park employees have always been met with a "I don't know, you have to ask a manager," and one cannot be found. Does anybody have any guidance on this matter?

As far as I know, they will not allow it on the ride. This is based on what was told to me at Great America, but each park might have its own rules.

I wish it was better news, but they really don't like it.
