Ok, Ive seem numerous amounts of people rollerblading at Kings Island. I have a few questions...

Are you talking real rollerblades or those Heeley shoes that have wheels in them? I don't see rollerblades being allowed, but the shoes are just shoes.

To be sure rollerblading can't be allowed in the park...heck, they don't even allow you to run.

And I hope it never will be allowed. I am around a lot of "skaters" and they do more than skate..there is the grinding (and they grind every rail in sight), the jumping, etc. Don't get me is a cool sport, but it does not belong in a park. Someone could get hurt.

Soloman, Razors, USD, all good but not at a park!

If the park did allow rollerblading, I can just imagine the lawsuits.

Its salomon!:)Everyone speels that wrong. Anyways youre right about the grinding thing. Im a skater and i grind every rail in sight. Anyone would be at risk if roller blading was allowed at parks. Plus if someone was blading in the park and fell they would most likely sue the park.

Speels? I am just kidding.

I'm pretty sure it has to be those shoes that has the wheels on them, because no privately owned organization would allow them unless it was specificly made for rollerblades.

This includes amusement parks, commerical stores, office buildings... etc.
Imagine the insurance they'd have to take out to cover the liability if somebody got hurt. It's a risky "sport" and is limited to either skate parks, or just places owned by the government, state, city, county... etc.

Most parks have signs that say "no scooters, no rollerblades, no bikes, & no skateboards allowed" posted somewhere.

If not... it's just plain common sense, people!

If i remeber corectly my homepark geauga lake once held a promotional event that had people on rollerblades handing out Go-Gurt squeezeble yougrut by the handful. All of the handerouters had normal clothes on and rollerblades they could be doing this.

Interesting point...A few years ago I was in a park...I think it was Kings Island...and inside the park was a shop which happened to be a full-line Rollerblade dealership. Very odd as (as was posted on a sign in the shop!) skating was (and is) NOT permitted in the park!

I remember that shop. I think the rock shop replaced it. Not sure tho.
