Must have an arm, hand, leg, and foot to ride at Six Flags.

New Rules at Six Flags Great America on who can ride and who can't

When I was at Six Flags Great America yesterday, I noticed that there are new safety rules that were "stickered" up on the safety boards for each ride that guests must have at least one arm with a bendable elbow and three full fingers and at least one leg with a foot.

Has anybody else seen this at your local Six Flags park and why the change? It also was on a majority of the rides (roller coaster and not)

Safety first. In my opinion it isn't a bad idea.

I'm not suprised they are taking more precautions. Six flags chain can not stand any more deaths at the moment.

I swear. If they don't hire more responsible people, I'm going to give up on Six Flags.

I think this was prior to the accidents over the weekend.

I'm just curious on the change.
