I just got home from SFNE. I got there aound 10:15 and walked straight to SROS the line was small as both trains were running great. I got right on 5min wait when noticed the ride attends were carrying plastic cups making people spit their gum into it. Then I went over to BTDN after 6rides on SROS, and they were doing the same thing on batman with the cups. Are they doing this in other parks? I know they weren't doing it at Lake Compounce because I was there yesterday.
Can you not choose to spit out the gum and ride at your own risk. That would be cool if they did becuase it would be like riding if you were pregnant(riding at own risk).
Edit: I meant this more in the parks perspective not in a guest perspective. If they say it and warn you then it's not thier fault. ------------------ A true enthusiast goes on the kiddie coasters. *** This post was edited by WILLDOG 5/18/2003 9:53:08 PM *** *** This post was edited by WILLDOG 5/19/2003 6:05:36 PM ***
I thought that would come out wrong. What I meant was that if you were to go on a coaster and you wanted to chew gum and the attendant asked for the gum, could you say no and chew it knowing the risk that you could choke or would you not be able to going on the ride. I know that any sane person would spit the gum out and not take the risk, Im just asking. Im not saying its cool to ride pregnant, I was just giving an example, on most rides it says that It is not recommened to ride pregnant. This is recommened and so, is it the same deal as in chewing gum? -------------- A true enthusiast goes on the kiddie coasters.
It will be just like putting personal items (Backpacks, bags, and waist pouches) away in those slots on the other side of the loading platform. Now, there will be a table with pieces of chewed gum on napkings sitting on a table! lol
Knowing SFNE, they're going to confiscate your gum and call it "contraband" under Massachusetts law. If my friend's plastic spiked bracelet is a weapon, then that dangerous, choke-inducing gum is the next on the list of banned items at SFNE, or in all of Mass according to their lovely guest relations dept.

How is this effecting capacity there? Are they checking at entrance or during the loading process?
I mean they already Wait 2 minutes to open gate, stand around for another minute, talk to each other for another minute and then get to work. If they have to actually do something in between all this like check for gum, this may hurt their nice 5 minute intervals. ;)
