Of course, who hasen't. It was a rainy day and Raging Bull was closed. They said they were going to open it in 5 minutes. I waited with about ten other people and a soon as the line opened I cut in front of all of them and got front row. It was Awesome.

Line jumping is not a sporting event and cause for removal from the park without refund.

That and the crowd will hurt you if you do it.

Very True Jeff, but if I ask and the ride op says OK I see no harm. Sometimes they said no other times yes. They let me do it when there was no line one day and they were running 2 trains. And when I say no line I mean no line. And no I would not do it on a busy day, nor is it OK that I did do it. Oh well though.

Word of advice. If you get caught line jumping and they escort you out of the park, dont say that you are a season pass holder.

In the few parks that I have visited, I have seen alot of line jumping. But usually, nobody says anything. It is kind of hard to get caught, especially when you are at the middle of the line where it is harder to spot you. Personally though, I have never cut in a line for a coaster. I bet though that if the opportunity presents itself to cut......I would do it. I also would feel pretty good about myself. I would probably feel that cutting in line is payoff for paying the admission price. Even though this sounds really shady, I am sure most other people would do the same. And yes.....I know that I am wrong, but hey, we live in an unfair world. Good post CoasterBuzzer.

Paying the admission price? Do you pay anymore than the people you jump in front of? I don't think so.

If you line jump in front of me, I will make a scene without even hesitating. I had a group of people chanting "line jumper" once in the Magnum queue, and they booted them back to the entrance.

I'm sorry you think the world is unfair. What a horrible way to go through life thinking that the glass is always half empty.

At Six Flags parks you are not allowed to do that either.

You took that a bit far, Jeff. I never stated I was a pessimistic person. I also said that I have never cut in line as well. This is not about morals. I was clearly stating that given the opportunity, I felt most people would cut as well as myself. Also, when I said life is unfair, I meant life is unfair. I did not state that I feel that half a glass is half empty, nor half full. If someone cuts in front of you, thats good that you would make a scene. But how would you feel if I had a pass that put my directly in front of any line. Is that still cutting? I actually had 4 of them last year, and used all of them without feeling bad. I got them from an employee who said they were not going to use them. I guess you could say that I was legally cutting. But I still say that I have never cut.....illegally. It is not fair that I get right on a ride when other people have to wait, but it's legal. I look at that as an opportunity and I took advantage. The passes are usually given out when there is a rain delay, and you were in line. This post was for cutting in line, not discussing my point of view of life itself. I am sorry if you got the wrong idea. Perhaps my words are a bit confusing. And by the way, I am always optimistic about everything I do, if you must know.

I too have used exit passes, and that's perfectly acceptable. However, that wasn't the way your last post read. It's nothing personal, mind you (I got your e-mail), but the tone of your last post was kind of dark and creepy. It brought me down and brought some bad line jumping memories to mind. That's why it provoked the response it did.

No biggie... next topic!

For what it's worth,
There were a group of people line jumping in line for Riddlers at SFMM, and someone told the employee standing by the stairs, and the people were ejected from the park, from what I could tell the people that were cought were very upset about it almost to the point of tears.

I never line jumped as a kid and that trait has carried over into my adult years. However, if somebody line jumps in front of me, I have no qualms about causing a major scene either. 2 years ago when Serial Thriller opened at Geauga Lake, I made the mistake of going on the Friday before Memorial Day. Little did I know it was Physics Day. Every high school and junior high kid in Northeast Ohio was there. Nonetheless, I had never been on an SLC before and I fully intended to ride it. As I stood in the huge line, swarms of kids just cut in front of me. They were always polite about it too- "Excuse me, I have to be with my friends". Well after about 50 kids had passed me in a 10-minute time span, I stood up on the railing and screamed out in a very angry voice "If anyone else needs to be with their friends, feel free to cut in front of me now!" I guess one of the group chaperones was behind me and sternly told me "Why don't you shut up- they paid good money to get in here". After laughing sarcastically for a few seconds, I stared directly at him and said "So did I". For some reason, that was the last I heard out of him, and the kids I think were too frightened to cut in front of some psychotic guy.

Anyhow, if you ever see someone standing on the queue rails screaming at people for line jumping, you'll know it's me!

i brought this topic back from a long time ago......i have a story to tell regarding line jumping. on my last sfo visit with my coastering buddys(nick and chris), bkf was down most of the day. it was a sunday, but it wasnt too packed. they started testing bkf so a very, very, very large group of people stood there. i knew there was going to be a stampede, so i was not going to let anyone pass me. when they let the gates open, everyone started to run down that ridiculously large que area and i would jump in front of people when they tried to pass me, yelling quit running, or dont pass me. i also did plenty of shoving also. punk:taking line jumpers to school. just wanted to share. we waited 4 cycles for front.

What happened to me at MA could be considered line jumping. Wlaking up to the corkscrew station, there was honestly no people at all. I took a trip on the front seat, and when i returned to the station, i didn't have to get out because nobody was waiting! I got 4 rides in a row on the Corkscrew. I guess it isn't bad line jumping, but I tihnk you are supposed to get off.
