This is really sad, another person dead because of a lost hat. I work at CGA, and when someone loses a hat, the person can usually come back at the end of the night to see if a manager can retrieve it. But people shouldn't even wear hats on rides. Whenever I'm at ride controls, I say over the PA, "Welcome to (insert ride name here). Please take off any hats, glasses, or bags as they may fly off during the ride." That would be nice, if the GP actually listened to the ride ops, then we could avoid some horrific accidents.
I lost a hat on Big Bad John at Magic Springs (forgot I had it on). They told me they might be able to get it back later that night but it wasn't worth it... I'm glad they didn't even offer to go "get it right quick".

I don't care if the fence is 3 INCHES tall, it still implies "STAY THE HECK OUT." Not "Hey, see if you can jump this fence," or "This fence is only here as a suggestion," or "This fence applies to everyone but YOU." Employ or guest, the boundaries a fence provides are in place for the safety of all.
^ Right. In the end, it doesn't matter whether there's a fence or not. These people aren't deaf. They're not blind. It all comes down to common sense. Something that seems to be fading away in society...
My God, I just rode that coaster last Saturday. They say the name of it though is Star Jet, but when I was at the park last Satyrday, on an updated list of rides in the ticket booth window refered to it as Jet Star. It wasn't that bad compared to the other coasters at Casino Pier.
How many PMW accidents can one coaster season take, sheesh.
I lost a hat on Medusa (SFGAdv) when I was doing a read the g-meter on physics day and looked up after reading and the bill caught the seat and BAM hat gone. As I was walking off I was looking for it to see if someone could get it after closing and a park employee said, "If you lost a hat I'll go look for it."
I told him it wasn't worth it. Maybe I saved a life maybe they would've stopped the ride, either way a hat is NOT worth it.
