Police arrested five men and charged them with forging hand stamps to allow people to enter the Six Flags Great Adventure theme park without paying, police reported Monday. Multiple drug charges were also handed out against the four Union men and one Queens man, said Sgt. Thomas Hratko.

bill, thinking those guys MUST have been listening to the Vengaboys... LOL!
1. That SF has created a pricing point for an amusement park that makes an attempt to counterfeit seem like a good alternative.
2. That there's still enough interest in the park (and desire to visit) that the idea of counterfeit handstamps seemed like a timeworthy decision.
3. That these guys were busted on drug charges after being pulled over in their vehicle at 4:20pm. :)
Kinda scary though to think if they had managed to get in, you'd have 5 guys with various "dangerous controlled substances" lurking about the park.
ANYWAY, I worked at an amusement park, and my least favorite place I wored was returns due to the hand stamps. It really is bad, people coming up saying their kids are in the park, and oh wait!, I didn't get a hand stamp! Etc. It was bad. VERY bad.
...you'd have 5 guys with various "dangerous controlled substances" lurking about the park.
Yeah, because those substances are so much more dangerous than the alcohol the park sells. (still need that rolleyes smiley)
Didn't you get your propaganda pamphlet this week? You cut the hair, I figured you'd start conforming. :)
Drugs are bad.... mmmkay?
Here's the proof! http://www.absolutelyreliable.com/
...because they'd clearly sell all their 'drugs' to little girls. Maybe they'd sell it to the little girl on the anti-pot commercial, so she'd ride her bike a little less like a maniac in front of the drive through window.
I'm not going to lie... I think a 16 year old who smokes pot is a lot less dangerous to himself and others than a 21 year old angry drunk guy.
There's only so many ways you can tell someone they cannot come in w/o getting the ACLU involved.
Maybe the new anti-drug commercial should depict some idiots trying to create a phony hand stamp so they could get into a park without paying.
Alright, so bringing Cocaine and Ecstacy into a park is a bad idea.
Right? Everybody knows you take what you got before you go into the park. ;)
Otherwise it just gets awkward. With those 5 1/2 hour long Kingda Ka wait times, you're stuck snorting lines off the railing in the queue...Or you have to find a designated smoking area to do bong hits...
It's just a hassle.
