This may not be the best question ever, but I have searched the official and unofficial sites and done a search or four on our beloved CB and cannot find this information so here goes. Does Six flags great america have a re-entry policy? In the past you could just get a hand stamp to leave and come back, but I was wondering if they have changed that due to increased security concerns. Thanks in advance for your help and if you are going tomorrow, I wish you sunny skies and short lines!!!

Well I don't know if this will help you but when I went there 2 years ago they used the stamp policy. :) CP

SFGAm and probably many other parks use the hand-stamp for re-entry. Season Pass holders are also encouraged to use the hand-stamp for re-entry, but you will have to go through security again once you re-enter the park. Also, with the parking stub, parking is paid for already as well.

The hand stamp is used. I was there last Saturday.

thank you both for the information. I will keep it on mind when I make a stop there next month.

Sky Whirl actually has a pretty small footprint if I remeber correcrly. just larger than the size of one of the wheels.
I would like to see the sky whirl back in the park. Its really a beautiful ride.

Someone mentioned season pass holders. Both Six Flags and Paramount only allow one entry per day on a season pass, so you have to get stamped to go out and reenter. I presume that this is to prevent multiple people sneaking in on one season pass.
I have wondered what they would do if I tried to attend 2 parks in the same chain on the same day with my season pass. Pretty easy to do with as close as some of the Six Flags parks are.

That's the screen name you chose?
Is it the real yellow or the yellow that they had on the coaster cars??

Well, you know. He did see
Jeff that one time at Cedar Point... Who's to say that wasn't a profound moment in his life? Good ole CPNut...

Ok, I wasnt going to ask this one, but it seems I am a glutton for punishment... (does CPNut have such mastery of the english language? I think not!)...Do you guys really ride all these kiddie coasters at these parks as your ride counts show? How were Jr. Gemini and Woodstock Express fellas?
Relax guys, I am only kidding...I am scared of the bumpercars!!

Sixflags does still use handstamps. :)

Woodstock Express--like most any Junior Vekoma--is actually pretty good. Junior Gemini reeks.

Can anyone name a park that *doesn't* have such a policy? And no, I don't mean parks like Knoebels w/ no gate.

Myrtle Beach Pavilion requires a handstamp AND your receipt...pain in the butt after you've gotten your wallet SOAKED on their mini-rapids ride....;)

Well, Playa, the birddog is making waffles then, because he isn't CPnut. I know who CPnut is, and that ain't him.
Moosh, agreed. I have never heard of NOT having such a system in place. I could understand someone wanting to know if there is a freeway or fastpass system, but not a park stamping... ;)
Holy crapola! Sony might be the ultimate destination!

What coaster did you see him riding? Or did you see him with a bunch of friends at a bar somewhere? Inquiring minds must know.

Obscure none coaster related thought for the day-----Are there really people out there that actually pay to use AOL?
Anyways, All this talk of syrup and waffles has me thinking that I should have made that left turn at Albuequerque.
nasai- thanks, and who is the birddog?
CoastaPlaya- To whom was that last question addressed and who were you asking about. I would hate to be presumptuous and infer you were asking me is all.
Moosh- when was the last time you were asked about M:TR?
