I weAR skate shoes (Vans) on all inverts and floorlesses all of the time. I've never once had them fall off but I also buy them to the correct size for my feet. I know a lot of people buy them about two sizes too big for their feet most of the time. If this werwe the case I probably wouldn't recommend it. Not that that the op won't let you on, but for the reason that who wants to lose their shoes and not get them back. I don't think thaat's something that you can readily find in any gift shops.
****wait a minute are we talking skater shoes o(Vans,Airealks, etc.) or shoes with skates built in? *** Edited 6/21/2006 7:50:42 PM UTC by clone1219***
I actually never really seen kids using them at parks until this year actually when I went to Busch Gardens Africa/Sea World/Old Town/Downtown Disney. I saw at least one kid rolling around at least once at each place. Which is also weird since I never even really saw them at all before, I thought they were "out of style" by now or something, but last week I saw more of them then I have before. I don't really see how it could cause a problem really (unless liability. I saw an older man arguing at Sea World with a store attendant because he had appearantly just fell while in the store. The attendant said he wasn't sure if anything could be done, probably because the guy was fine enough to be standing there argueing about it...)I don't see how any park could inforce not using them also. *** Edited 6/21/2006 9:40:00 PM UTC by P18***
Well, that's a pretty interesting question. I've seen kids with these shoes before, and I'm thinking "That's a great way to get yourself killed," but, I guess they've got the technique down. I don't see why you coudln't ride with these shoes on a floorless, because the track is still pretty far below your feet (even if it doesn't look like it).
I was at Cedar Point this past Sunday and saw a girl with skater shoes get on Wicked Twister. She went on the train right before me.
I don't see what the problem is per se with the skater shoes on a floorless coaster as long as they are laced up. I would think flip flops are more dangerous to bystanders than skater shoes.
I also did a double take on this girl rolling around while she was in line. I had never seen the shoes before, but they looked fun. Nobody told her to stop and the station worker let her on to the platform no questions asked.
At Sea World San Antoino since there was a water park conected to the park most people wore flip flops. On Great White almost every body toke there shoes and flip flops off and put them on the side of the loading platform.
