Now all you need is to start LARPing in the park, and you could open up some kind of geek black hole...
I never had any problems regarding T-Shirts at any park. However on Halloween Weekend in 2010 I was in Texas using a Free Airline Ticket I snagged after getting "Bumped" off a flight in July. since it was Halloween I planned to wear a mask on a ride where you get your picture taken, and then use the keychain as a Christmas Tree Ornament. It would have been called "Merry Christmas, from Halloween! The mask was a "Jason" Hockey Mask, on the top smeared in "Blood" (Red Ink) were the words "Merry Xmas!".
Unfortunately Sea World San Antonio didn't allow any masks, and both Six Flags parks said my mask was "Too Scary". (As I was making my way to the entrance Other Guests and Park Employees were doubling over in laughter - Too bad the Security People didn't have the same sense of humor everyone else had). So I had to put my mask back in the car and do without it. Oh well, I still had fun.
You still had fun?? It would've totally ruined my dream.
I see people wear different park shirts at parks all the time. Heck, I wear my Holiday World ones when I go to a park just because. Guess what happens! Nothing.
However, televised events are a different issue.
I also was asked to turn my KISS shirt insideout at a county fair, because it has a tatooed naked lady on the back of it. Why buy shirts if you can't wear them?
Why wear inappropriate shirts to family-friendly places?
Trimper's....still the only place where I've seen bikinis considered acceptable attire on coasters.
I won't comment on my personal feelings on that....PG-13 and all...
^^That's the only time I've ever heard anyone having to change shirts or turn them inside out in parks.
In the late '90s a band called Local H had a shirt that just had their logo on the front and a big "F*UCK YOU" on the back. They'd just played a show in Atlanta and remember a bunch of those shirts showing up at SFOG. Those wearing them were asked to turn them inside out.
It was a goofy shirt, I owned one myself. It might be appropriate at a concert or a party with like minded folks, but definitely not for a park.
Wait, what did it say? That asterisk is totally throwing me off.
Yes, I stll had fun even though my dream to have a "Merry Christmas from Halloween" Ornament was busted. The Security Guards at Theme Parks are like Sports Officials. All the arguing in the world won't sway their opinion. You are not supposed to like the rules, just follow them.
Whatever park I am at, I always wear a shirt with a different park on it. (A six flags shirt at a cedar fair park or a knoebels shirt at holiday world). Once in a while someone will ask me "Hey where is that park at or hey ravine flyer III was my 100th coaster) The latter happened at Dollywood. I was at hershey and a coaster dude started talking to me because "I saw you had a park shirt". And my friend and I even sat all together on skyrush.
Sometimes you can share coaster jargon with a fellow coaster lover via park shirts. I know it probably doesn't happen that much, but I have had a few good convos and twas the shirt that got them started.
I wonder if the guys a Hersheypark would even have a clue if I wore my "Canobie Lake Grounds" shirt through the midway.
Heck, I doubt that any of them even KNOW about Canobie Lake!
I've worn a Six Flags Great Adventure T-shirt to a number of different parks because until recently it was the only one I had - and the only one I'd been able to find that was both pretty and feminine. No-one ever commented and I doubt that anyone even took notice. The one thing I regret is that my signature photograph shows me in a SFGA T-shirt at Michigan's Adventure; had I known that I would like this picture so much, I would have tried to think of something else to wear.
I think I wore a solid grey t-shirt last time I was at a park. Or it may have been black. If it was grey, I'm not sure whether it was dark or light grey. Or medium. Damn, I can't remember.
