1. No I haven't, and I'd admit it if I did

2. If you do it once I really don't think you are a bad person. But if you are constantly cutting and trying to get away with it you are just plain mean. Besides the gp paid as much as you did and want to ride too.

3. No they should be warned that that they will be kicked out if they do it again.

In situations where it adds no extra time to other people's wait, then it is fine by me. For example, if three people are riding in a row, and their friend wants to ride with them, it doesn't bother me, but if a group of people try to jump line, I speak up.

2) It is wrong.

3) Kick em out.

Thats not called line jumping because that person can easily just wait a train and leave one row empty (and believe me Ive seen it), that "aint line jumpin" and neither is getting on a train with another single rider if no one in front of you (besides the person on the train) is a single rider. Also, park santioned stuff doesnt count.

1. No

2. No

3. One warning (maybe an indellible stamp?) then a kick out

1. no, except for FastLane, which is just legal line jumping IMHO.

2. it is very wrong and I dont normally let people get away with it.

3. people should be kicked out, there are enough signs that tell you that you will get booted if you do it. If you cannot read, tough crap, out you go, serves your stupid a$$ right.

If you line cut, your breaking the rules. It is as simple as that. It's not fair to all of the others who follow the rules and wait in line, while some jerks cut in front of you because they think they are "too good" to wait normally like everyone else. Basically, don't do it. :)

That's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about when they are still in line, quite a few people behind their friends, before the line has broken off to different rows.

1.) Not really, I might have caught up to my friends before if I was slow to the line and my friends ended up 5 people in front of me. The only time that I sort of line jump is when I cheated the Freeway at C.P. last year. They stamped the "ride" on my hand, but it was rainy and that stamp just wiped right off. So I decided to use my freeway again lol. Thats the only "line-jumping" I have ever intentionally done.

2. Yes I think its wrong

3. Yes I think people should be booted from the park, usually they aren't though and just sent out of line or to the back of the line.

I've never skipped in line. That's about the worst thing you can do at amusement park. Come on. What, did my forty bucks to get in mean more than someone else's? I even have problems with this pay-to-get-to-the front thing, whatever it is. I'd never do it. I've spent the past 26 years of my life standing in line, being patient, respecting others, waiting my turn, and I can and will continue to do so.

I think butting in line is one of the worst things you can do at an amusement park short of beating someone up. I can't express how much of a downer it is for me and my mood when I see some smug person(s) butting in front of me, and I don't think I'm ever alone in my sentiments.

Yes, the skipper should get kicked out of the park. What is this, getting a warning if they do it again they'll be kicked out? What is so difficult to understand? Does anyone really think that it's okay and appropriate to butt in line? Besides being common knowledge, the dozen or so signs indicating that it's wrong and will bring consequences are enough. No one is so dense that they can't know that what they're doing is wrong, and kicking them out of the park is not extreme. Let them do it, they'll do it again.

I don't have sympathy either if it's some kid who did it while out of the supervision of his parents. The park is not to do the parenting, and perhaps the parent will take better care to more properly supervisor their child next time the parent decides to spend so much money on a day at the park.

I never skip. It's the worst offense at a park there is. Well, outside of mullet wearing. ;)

Anybody who skips on my watch will be thrown into the theming surrounding the queue. This I assure you. Just ask around.

3) Throw them into traffic. See if they can skip the white and yellow lines on a highway while cars are speeding at them.

1.No, I never have had the need to, I try to only go on days that aren't crowded.

2.Yes, it is wrong, you can't argue that.

3. Yes, they should. Lines can get very long and hot and people don't pay money to be cut by somebody who thinks they are too good to be in line.

Public queues filled with strangers require maximum participation from all with little trust by anyone. Those who would dare to violate its most basic rule, no line-jumping, threaten all. After all, what if everyone else did it? Absolute chaos. The very point of the line breaks down.

Line jumpers should immediately be ejected from the park. Not only is it rude, but it's insulting to the majority of parkgoers who play by the rules. Severe punishment (immediate ejection) is the only solution.

I never have, I think it's wrong, and those who do should be beaten up and THEN kicked out of the park.

1.) Yes, but in an intelligent way, that's neither rude nor obvious. I've done it four different ways:

a.) Complain to park information that I was having a bad day or that an employee disrespected me (neither true), which then they gave me line skipping passes.

b.) Pretend to have a younger 4-year-old with us so we could use "baby swap".

c.) Have my entire group get in the singles line but actually get on the ride as a group.

d.) This is the least used one, because there are easier ways, it's the one most likely to get you caught, and IMO is most morally wrong... Nonchalantly pretend you're meeting up with someone further ahead in the line politely saying "excuse me" (I use this at the movie theater too).

2.) Yes, but there is a difference between being assertive and faithful. ...but that still doesn't make it any more right.

3.) Yes, but if you ever do get caught, it's easy to snake your way out of it... unless you're one of the really stupid and unclever line skippers that just hop the bars. :)

Perhaps someone can fill me in on this; when I was at CP last month, I was waiting in line for MF with my friends. There was a small group of girls (who appeared to be in early high school) right behind us. Almost the entire time in line, there were a few security officers who almost seemed to be following us, and of course, this made me nervous even though we had done nothing wrong. However,my one friend swears that he overheard the girls talking about how they were the ones being followed. He couldn't catch the entire conversation, so we don't know what they had done. This happened in the first queue section, before the Pepsi machines. They were allowed to continue in line and ride. Now, were they being followed because they wer line skippers? Or did they do something worse, like shoplift from one of the stores? And if they were line skippers, why would they be allowed to ride, and not be pulled out immediately, since we were still relatively near the entrance? Hopefully someone has had an experience like this and can shed some light on it, since every once in a while they return to the conversation from that trip.
