I still like the idea of the cup rack. I mean all I keep hearing is from people who don't use a souvenir cup. I for one have a cup for every park that uses them, and I usually refill them all day. Usually I have my wife, or the stroller to leave my cup with, but it would be cool to have somewhere I could leave my cup without having to buy a locker.

 

I don't think I would be really too worried about people messing with the cups. The only time someone messed with my drink was at Disneyland when the Disney jackass moving my stroller dumped my soda all over the seat and just left it there. I really hate it when they move strollers, I park it in the designated area and I come back and it's gone. I actually had someone put their stuff in my stroller thinking it was theirs, because it had been moved. Anyway, since I'm the jackass walking around with the refillable cup, my vote is for the cup holders.

Count me in on that jackass crowd. The benefit of $1 refills for and ice cold Coke or Freshers Frozen Lemonade throughout the day faaaaaar outweighs the hassle of carrying around a souvenir cup that's not even a hassle in the first place.

 

Spiking the drinks on the souvinier cup rack? What are guests walking around with bottles of booze or something?

Though I've only been to SFGAd, I recently had an experience where I had been waiting on El Toro for 45 minutes, and right about the time I hit that point, a security guard told me I couldn't have the cup on line...

 

Because of that, I had to toss my cup, and even worse, I was quite pissed, even after I rode an excellent coaster.

 

 

My aunt's boyfriend, who's actually quite chummy with people he's never met, was talking with a park employee, and apparently:

 

'The policy with cups and other stuff is only followed on the rides that PROVIDE lockers. If a ride, say, Rolling Thunder or a mine train, DON'T provide lockers, then you can hold the cups on line or even on the ride...'

 

Basically, if they don't provide you an option to pay $1 for the lockers, it's only their fault for not providing the option, which means you're allowed to carry a souvenier cup on the ride...

 

Wierd policy, yes, but it is quite fair...Unless you pinch every penny you find on a sidewalk...

This is why SF is not a competitor in the Amusement Park industry when it comes to customer service, and probably never will be. They piss off a guest who just spent $13 bucks for a souvenir bottle and is minding his own business, but look the other way when people use profanity, wear inappropriate shirts and cut in line.

 

Those security guards are useless, and do more harm than good.

Funny you mention cutting in line...

 

I was waiting on Kingda Ka, and apparently, some idiot tried letting his wife and two kids (Who were WAYYY two small to ride on Kingda ka anyway...) jump onto the line at a cutoff point where security guards can walk in. The security guard spent 10 minutes telling the stubborn idiot that he had to follow the rules, because if he didn't, this nice security guard would get in trouble for it...This man continued to argue about it senselessly, so then this guard had to call ANOTHER guard over to help convince this moron that it wasn't the two guys' rules, but THE PARK'S RULES...

 

That's probably the first time I've EVER seen a security guard carry out the line cutting rule...

 

Even my uncle once broke the swearing rule...Even though, like you said, NO ONE caught him...Thankfully...

I did that purposely, actually. It's fun to know a simple word like

 

lo-

 

ckers

 

Can turn into a huge statement like that!

 

 

Still, it'd be nice if I was told about the option policy BEFORE I waited 60 minutes...

^ You can even do that in Microsoft Word if you want to. That would be a cute trick to play on other members of your household.

 

"What are guests walking around with bottles of booze or something?" (kf2010)

 

It's really not hard to sneak a small bottle of booze into the park. When you stop and think about it, the metal detectors only catch metal---not Sharpies, pencils, non-metallic containers, etc. I bring my diabetic kit into the park, and while someone usually asks what it is and if they can look inside, I've been through there without opening it. Imagine what I could hide in there...

 

And people can spike drinks with something other than booze.

 

SoCal is a very different culture from other places. This is why an idea like this works in St. Louis, but likely wouldn't here.

How big was the snake? I think I would be a little freaked out if I was just sitting there and turned around to see a snake!

 

 

You're asking me, right?

 

 

If so, it was...Relatively small. It was about the the size of a large piece of rope.

 

 

Scariest thing is, my aunt's boyfriend saw a HUGE snake in the boyfriend...

 

 

If he had given it 5 minutes, it would've been 'Snakes in an Amusement Park'....

 

 

Starring Samuel L. Jackson...

Not to change the subject, but I seriously can't get over the "Project 18" name.

 

I just imagine Six Flags executives sitting in a board room, when all of a sudden one of them goes "I got it! Lets call our top secret coaster project that is going to bring the record back to SFMM Project 18. No one will EVER guess what we're up to!"

^ Of course, do we even know that the name came from SFMM? It came up on Screamscape, and that's the only place I've seen it besides this topic. It does make sense if it is the 18th coaster for the park, but exactly who came up with it?

I REALLY don't want to create more lockrr discussions, but with their computerized systems throughout the park, one would think it would be simple to pay like, $5 with your admission for a lockrr pin number that can be used around the park. I don't really use the lockrrs 5 different times throughout the day, but I would probably pay for that pin number to make things easier.

Why not just sell a soda card for $13, instead of a big cumbersome plastic cup you have to carry around? Just show your card and get a large soda in a paper cup for a buck. Better yet, just include $1 sodas with a season pass purchase. There are plenty of mugs in the shops if someone truly wants a souvenir.

This current discussion reminds me of something I saw last time I went to the park. After I got off Colossus, one of the employees caught someone that just took an illegal POV. The employee told him he must erase it, but of course the person didn't, but the employees just let him go. I am not exactly sure of what the park's policy is on this thing but I am sure that employee could have done more to make him erase it.
