I carrying the beer throughout the park will make the popularity grow, since I had one guy walk all the way across the midway to ask us where we got the beers, while his wife waited with anticipation. The only time I ever see a few people who appear obviously drunk is at haunts and fright fests. I can only remember of a hand full of cases.

I agree with Zach. For those who enjoy drinking (responsibly) this is a really good thing. In addition to not wanting to power through a drink, we have young kids, so we can't have them just hanging around while the wife and I sip our drinks because we can't leave the premises. Just got back from DL/CA and really enjoyed being able to have a few drinks at CA walking around not having to pound it down. At the Disney parks where you can drink, CA in California and DHS, Epcot and AK in Florida, we have always been able to walk around with a drink. I have never seen anyone drunk at the Disney parks. I always thought SF had it backwards.

I can pretty much guarantee anyone walking around a theme park full on tanked didn't do it on park beer. They smashed tallboys in the parking lot.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

A theme park is not a nightclub, but it's very nice. Oh yes, it's very nice.

I'm sure the employees have been told to cut people off if they're obviously drunk. There's alcohol at the zoo. There is now alcohol at movies. There's no harm in it as long as security and the bar tenders pay attention. Serve it in the parks or don't. People will get drunk one way or another if they want to. #dollywood#moonshine

Hah... Yeah... I've never done that during Haunts.

(Busch gardens is an exception to the park beer/drunk rule.)

Anyone remember when Hersheypark was a similar park to SFSL? I had no idea they were up to 14 coasters already. And they get 15 in 2020 :(

I don't think that's a good comparison. Also, Hershey is loaded with money and has one park to focus on vs. a chain of parks. I get what you're saying, though.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

SFSL is the red-headed stepchild to the chain. ( no offense to red-heads or stepchildren)

SFSL is the last picked for the kickball game.

SFSL has been friend zoned by the chain.

probably all bad examples.....

but they do explain things a bit.

It's a small market park in a rust belt town. If you live in St. Louis and don't understand your city's status in this country, then the blame is squarely on you.

I completely agree. that's why all the yearly speculation of some new large-scale coaster being put in the park makes me smile.
