Wow, that was really bad in the Raptor line and did remind me of Six Flags. Well I guess we can't forget that the crowds were outrageous that day, but CP should of really emptied that trash can out earlier in the day maybe? And the gum wall really wasn't there all during the summer and they really did good at cleaning that all off daily, but I guess it's back again.
The park was EXTREMELY busy that day. I have personally never seen it that busy ever. The park was staffed by mainly sorority and fraternaties earning bucks for their groups. Even with that it was clear that the park was not handling the crowds as they usually can, but who would have thunk it would be that crazy in the end of October.
Great pictures BTW. I was an idiot and left my camera behind. Good to see someone documented the day.
I was at the park in early August and saw some trash cans like that. Its just not like Cedar Point. In fact, I was somewhat letdown by my trip to CP this year...it just didnt seem as well run as it has been in the past.
It gets that way when park services has low staff. Basically there are less eyes to find these. The best thing to do is to inform an employee and they can call park services and inform them of an overflowing trashcan. With the park being so busy, it's not hard for the trashcans to get like that.
As for the gum wall. That happens on that support on Raptor's platform every year. It's gross.
