Mike, do you have dreadlocks and a fondness for patchouli oil by any chance?

^ Dreadlocks are cool. Patchouli smells bad...even worse after a solid reek, er, week of it.

34 years old is SO old, I think Tina should get her AARP card now... :rollseyes:

Personally, the only time shirts/shoes, or the lack thereof, would really bug me is if it led to an accident where someone got hurt or a ride got shut down. Bummer. Otherwise, whatever floats your boat. If the park has rules and plans to enforce them, just be fair. Everybody or nobody. I hate going barefoot myself, unless I'm in the house, and wear either watershoes or flipflops. The only trouble I've had with flops in the park is if I'm on something like Mind Eraser, where I might lose 'em. So I ride barefoot, as do a lot of others.

I have never had dreadlocks in my life and I dont know what the heck patchouli oil is.

If the accident was because of their lack of shoes/shirt then I wouldnt be bugged by it because these guys knew the risks when they took their shoes/shirt off and acknowledged it by doing so.


Bummer. Otherwise, whatever floats your boat. If the park has rules and plans to enforce them, just be fair. Everybody or nobody.


Exactly, I dont like rules that are selectively enforced.


The only trouble I've had with flops in the park is if I'm on something like Mind Eraser, where I might lose 'em. So I ride barefoot, as do a lot of others.


Thats why they usually have you take them off and put them in bins on such rides and go on them barefoot.

Lord knows rides on any stand up coaster in one's birthday suit would provide for an even more painful experience than they usually do....ouch!

^At least we would only have to worry about one type, think about all the ladies who would probably be in a lot of pain walking off of any lap bar ride with airtime.

Sir, you're going to have to turn in your hippie credential card for that one. It's clearly stated in section 193 of the hippie code that, "while wearing of patchouli is not required, a true hippie will not speak poorly of the odorant."

I guess you're going to tell me that you don't like the smell of burning sage, walking barefoot on the grass, or the music of the Grateful Dead. ;)

Mike, who has greatly appreciated the various hippie ways to deal with b.o. after several days at a festival on several occasions. Trust me, it's better than the alternative. :)

^ LOL. Hippies with B.O. - ugh.

Actually, anyone, with the exception of those heading toward the showers in the gym, with B.O. is gross. Cover that with patchouli oil and it's a winning combination. :)

I think people ought to boycott Six Flags and send alot of letters/phone calls/emails into them and tell them how unhappy and frustrated and angered they are about the new policy and say that theyre not gonna step foot in any of their parks until they change their policy.

When these guys feel it hurt in the pocketbook they will take notice and realize not eveyryone is happy with them trying to be another Disney emulated park. Thats the only way to do it.

Especially families, they need to show these bozos what they think about their "family friendly" atmosphere. This kind of nonsense cannot be tolerated.

^ I've seen few people having problems with a Code of Conduct per se. Most of the posts in this thread deal with the fact that what SF is announcing as new has already been in place, but just not enforced.

Mike131, are you saying people should boycott SF until they allow line-jumping, smoking in non-designated areas, and rude behavior? Good luck with that campaign.

RGB, Six Flags free since 1978!

Yeah, totally. Next time I bring my son to Six Flags there better damn well be some naked guy cutting in line in front of me blowing smoke in my face and calling me a f*ckhead or we're going somewhere else!

I dont think line jumping is necessarily bad, as long as youve got someone there holding your spot for you. Sometimes people gotta get out of line for stuff. No reason to be punished for that.

As for smoking in non-designated areas, if there were more "designated" areas to smoke then people wouldnt be smoking in the non-designated ones, but when you gotta walk half way across the park just to take a puff then youve got a problem. Thats why people break that rule. As long as theyre not gonna burn down the park with their cigarette then I dont see what the problem is.

People are gonna be rude no matter what you do. Its silly to make a rule about it because its impossible to enforce because youd end up having to boot out half of your customers. Besides that would really alienate alot of people. Rude people are just a fact of life unfortunately. Just gotta learn to deal with em.

I just dont think alot of rules are necessary when most of this stuff is common sense.

Thats a lil extreme, im not actually advocating some guy coming to the park naked and blowing smoke in people's faces and flipping them off, I wouldnt want anyone to do that. I just dont think the park should be so uptight and they should just let people do their own thing as long as they dont hurt noone or themselves.

Ummm, the voting never came back on that, the 350 people in attendance couldn't reach *absolute consensus*, so no decision was reached and everyone returned to their vans to, ummmm, recreate.

Nope, like all of those....although my lawn needs a LOT more work before I'd go calling it "grass". Hacky-sack, OTOH.... :)

If more parks had and enforced codes of conduct like this the world would be a better place. KI is a prime example of a park that has policy’s in place AND enforces them. If Holiday World had a policy in place not to let racist, homophobic, mullet wearing rednecks come into and work at there park I’d go back. Everyone loves to kick SF, give them some credit when they are trying.

I wonder if Six Flags will view tshirts from other parks as offensive.

Like me wearing one of my Dorney shirts to SFGAdv, or an BGE shirt to SFA.
