Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 1989: Wicked Twister's permanent closure announced!

Recommended Posts

Actually, here's an idea - instead of installing metal detectors, why isn't there security hanging out in the onride photo booth, and every person they see with their cell phone out on the ride, escort them out of the park and trespass them from ever coming back.

 

I personally think the biggest issue here why people think they can do whatever they want on rides is because there isn't enough repercussion for when someone does something against the rules.

 

Line jumping? Kick them out of the park!

Using their cell phone or camera on ride? Kick them out of the park!

Smoking in line? Kick them out of the park!

 

PUNISH THE IDIOTS!!! DON'T PUNISH THE REST OF US!!!

 

That is how the world should be working.

 

 

Like you say Robb .... Security @ the onride photo booth and kick those people out using their cellphone and other devices .... I am a gopro user and I am always asking permission if there is a possibillity 2 use my gear (go pro with chest mount) ... if not I leave my gear behind at the operators or lockers !!! Very sad 2 see that sometimes when they don't give me permission other people using their cellphones for selfies and onrides and going away with it ....

Or if sharp/heavy objects are the problem, do the same there. Install lift cameras and have security watch it. *Arrest* people who intentionally attempt to injure others. It is, in fact, illegal. Use your biometrics to ban them from the park. Metal detectors are a lazy approach.

This is what they do in Alton Towers Robb .... I've seen it 2 years ago @ the Oblivion coaster !! A guy was spotted on their camera system on the lifthill using his cellphone, they stopped the ride, 2 operators climbed the lifthill and take the guys cellphone ... ride continues and as soon the train arrived back in the station the person was handed over 2 the security and kicked out o.t. park !!!

Well, it's not just stupid people here in the USA who lose their phones and then die while trying to retrieve them from an area where they shouldn't be venturing. Check out this New York Post article:

 

http://nypost.com/2014/06/08/two-die-in-toilet-while-looking-for-dropped-cell-phone/

 

Here's a copy of the text:

A man and his mother have suffocated after trying to fish a mobile phone out of an open pit toilet and falling in.

 

The South China Morning Post reports that an unnamed woman in Xinxiang City, China, dropped her phone, worth about $320, into the open pit toilet.

 

Her husband tried to find it but was overcome by the stench, lost consciousness and fell in. His mother then dove in after her son but she also fainted.

 

Neighbors were called for help after the owner of the phone then tried to save her husband and mother-in-law but also lost consciousness.

 

A total of six people had to be pulled out of the toilet. The man and his mother both had pulses when they were rescued but died as they waited more than an hour for medical assistance to arrive.

 

“Two lives have gone in five minutes and my cousin’s wife is still in coma, leaving a partially-paralyzed old man and a one-year-old son at home,” the husband’s uncle said, according to Shanghaiist.

 

“What are we supposed to do?”

While marathoning NTAG the other day with Larry(great way to get some exercise btw) someone had gotten caught using their cell phone on the ride(they have a few new cameras since the incident) and while everyone else's seats were unlocked and leaving the ride, the offending party was safely secured in their seats awaiting their sentencing. Gotta love the ability to keep specific seats locked. While I'm used to seeing that happen, I don't think Larry had before.

 

Now depending on the attitude of the patron they may get away with simply deleting the photos/videos, or may get to visit with park security and shown the exit. I've seen similar things at SFFT as well.

 

I'm all in favor for cameras covering as much of a ride as possible. If some dumbass has his gigantic TV Phone out trying to film a loop or take a selfie (yes, I'm talking about you Samsung lovers) and it flys out and hits me in the head and tears my eyeball out, I'm gonna want to know who did it so I can kick their ass, oh, and since 'merica, sue their ass too!

Do you think Cedar Point should upgrade there fencing. Maybe change it and make them more taller so people can't sneak into roller coasters and restricted areas if they loose there personal belongings? Make the fences more higher up and tight together to prevent people from entering restricted areas? Is this the first death to happen at Cedar Point? And wonder if all parks should do the same for fences making them higher up and tighter so people can't sneak in to prevent this in the future? This is not Cedar Point fault because he entered a restricted area. Why couldn't he wait till the park closes to get his belongings or have an employee get it for him? Doesn't Cedar Point check areas if people loose there stuff on roller coasters and I thought ride operators always say please put all loose articles in the storage areas before coming on to the rides or roller coasters? What was he carrying that he lost so important to get back?

First of all, it's LOSE not LOOSE! For the love of humanity people, they are two different words, they sound totally different, and they mean two different things...

No, because this won't stop idiots for being dumb. All it will mean is that the same idiot will have to climb a bit more. Like I said earlier in this thread, you can't idiot proof the world. All that results from that is you end up finding a bigger idiot.

 

In reality, they shouldn't need ANY signs as a fence and a locked gate should be enough of a warning for people not to go in an area where a dangerous giant metal object is flying past you at 65MPH. But people are dumb so they have to put up signs.

 

If someone is going to jump a fence into a restricted area, they are going to do that regardless of any signs or fence height. You can't fix stupid.

I've read he lost his phone. No way is this the parks fault. Nothing more needs to be done by CP or any other park. Robb's idea about security watching lift hill cameras is a great one.

It's really sad. You would think knowing a multi ton train is flying around close to the ground, with giant fences and signs that say "RESTRICTED AREA: DO NOT ENTER" would be enough... But once again humans are a dumb species... Was he by himself at the park? He must have been, I don't know any group of people who would see that and not have at least one person say "bad idea." Or worse, was he with a group and the ENTIRE group said "yea, you got this" and he jumped the fence with them all watching...
