Six Flags Guest "Code of Conduct"

Monday, October 30, 2006 9:32 AM
No offense Mike, but I highly doubt you have enough friends to bankrupt a park. I don't know of anyone who has that many friends in one particular area. I also doubt they'd even listen to you. Also, when the guests see security come escort you out of the park, they'll be thinking, "Score! Another one gone!" I guarentee you they won't be thinking, "My, what a bunch of discriminatory jerks! How dare they escort that man out of the park."

As far as the park going after everybody, not just the deviants, you are wrong once again. Like I previously said, I don't know what parks you go to, but I've yet to see any park who just preys on all of its guests. It doesn't happen.

Sirloindude, who would like to thank Peabody for the round of applause and who has come to the conclusion that he is 1) feeding a troll, 2) getting played as part of some practical joke by someone who is pretending to have a fit over complete nonsense, or 3) is arguing with someone who, no matter how illogical the arguments they make are proven to be, will simply not accept reality. *** Edited 10/30/2006 2:34:02 PM UTC by sirloindude***

Hey its my body, isnt any of their business what I do/dont put on it. If they wanna cause a big scene and make people see what theyre really like then they can just go ahead and try to confront me, I wouldnt make it easy for em, they might get me out of the park but hey the damage will already be done. Of course after that id just boycott the park and tell all my friends/family to do the same till they change the rules/go bankrupt whatever happens first.


1) I, for one, would probably applaud security for removing you from the park. People would see what they're "really" like-- they'd probably be glad to see troublemakers and rulebreakers removed.

2) Why wait till after an incident to boycott a park-- why not start now?

As long as "mom" is there then their spot is being held in line and it doesnt matter if they go on another ride and come back.

Yes, it DOES matter. Is that fair to, for example, the couples in line who CAN'T hold each other's places and still ride both rides? No.



Having a rule just complicates things.

Well, now, we can't have THAT, can we? Rules just complicate things, let's legalize murder!

(Yes, I know that's an extreme argument, but I'm making a point here, shaddup ;) )



Hey its my body, isnt any of their business what I do/dont put on it.

Well, what you do in private isn't their business, but what you do on their property most certainly is their business.

All of these childish arguments about the parks and their rules are beyond stupid. They're not the government, they are a private party who is allowing other people onto their property.

When you invite somebody onto your property you are subjected to certain rules of law that dictate what you must do in order to protect your guests. Therefore the parks set guidelines, whether you like them or not, in order to cover their butts in the majority of cases (negligence not withstanding).

When you go to the park, you purchase a ticket for admission onto their property. This ticket is a contract. They agree to allow you to come onto their property if you obey their rules and you agree to obey their rules in order to enjoy their property. If you breach the contract, you can be removed from their private property. END OF STORY!

Parks are not the government and are not public property. All your childish arguments about they don't have a right to tell you 'X' is b.s., because they do have the right to dictate whatever they like (within the law of course) to anyone who enters onto their PRIVATE property.

You're a troll and a foolish troll at that. Please start your ban of ALL parks at once.

If you really think that I can't tell you how to behave on MY property, why don't you come on over and give it a try. When the police are physically removing you from my house and a restraining order in placed upon you, see how many people buy your b.s. theories then. Anarchy doesn't work!

^I doubt you or all of your friends would make enough fuss for a park to change the rules regarding clothing or lack of, let alone bankrupt any park. Actually, I bet your friends and family would agree with the park's rules.

I could personally care less what people wear or don't wear. I really don't pay attention, but then again it's not my park anyway. I don't make the rules.

Parks have rules, and those rules are expected of all guests regarding proper attire whether they like it or not. There are kids around that don't need to see explicit language on T-shirts, let alone people making an ass out of themselves for giving security a hard time over it. Yeah it's your body but your body is in THEIR park.

Alternatively - if you don't like Shapiro's "slightly used" rules - you CAN always move to St. Louis...

...they've apparently decided on a game of one-upsmanship with GAdv and SFMM....

No offense Mike, but I highly doubt you have enough friends to bankrupt a park. I don't know of anyone who has that many friends in one particular area. I also doubt they'd even listen to you.


When you have a park that is in as bad shape financially as Six Flgas is, I think a few friends is all I would need to bankrupt them because they really cant afford to deny anyone service. They need all the customers they can get.


Also, when the guests see security come escort you out of the park, they'll be thinking, "Score! Another one gone!" I guarentee you they won't be thinking, "My, what a bunch of discriminatory jerks! How dare they escort that man out of the park."


Hey, they might always be thinking "police brutality!". Some of those security guards areint always nice when they escort you out of the park.



As far as the park going after everybody, not just the deviants, you are wrong once again. Like I previously said, I don't know what parks you go to, but I've yet to see any park who just preys on all of its guests. It doesn't happen.


The rules are such that you can be shirtless and doing nothing disruptive or you can be shirtless and doing something disruptive and either way you still get kicked out, just because youre shirtless even though youre not doing anything wrong. Instead of banning people for being shirtless just to get rid of the shirtless people who act disorderly, why not just make the rule so that you actually have to be doing something besides just being shirtless in order to be kicked out? Its the behavior more than the mode of dress that needs to be enforced. Ive seen more fully clothed patrons cause trouble than shirtless ones.



1) I, for one, would probably applaud security for removing you from the park. People would see what they're "really" like-- they'd probably be glad to see troublemakers and rulebreakers removed.


Well for one thing im not causing any trouble to begin with and for another there shouldnt be a rule for me to break in the first place. Im just trying to exercise my freedoms that these people are trying to deny me for their own selfish benefit.


2) Why wait till after an incident to boycott a park-- why not start now?


I would do it after the incident because then not only would I be opposed to the rule I could actually cite a instance where they expelled someone from the park for it and claim I got mistreated. The reason for boycotting them is more personal then.


^ I like #2....boycott all parks that require clothing NOW...the impending bankruptcy SHOULD get them to fix those stupid policies before the attendance drops too much...


I dont expect parks to allow nudity nor do i expect anyone to go nude to a park. I just want MEN to be allowed to go shirtless to a park if they wish.


Yes, it DOES matter. Is that fair to, for example, the couples in line who CAN'T hold each other's places and still ride both rides? No.


Its none of my business nor is it my responsibility if those people cant hold each other's place in line or not. Its not my problem.


Well, now, we can't have THAT, can we? Rules just complicate things, let's legalize murder!


Having rules when they areint absoulutely needed sometimes causes more problems than good because people tend to be more inclined to break them and rebel against authority. Obviously murder does not fit that category because we absoulutely need rules against stuff like that. Some people are more inclined to do what is right when they are respected and expected to use common sense or are at least asked to do something instead of told to like some child.


Well, what you do in private isn't their business, but what you do on their property most certainly is their business.


Not when its my body and I got rights and im the customer and im the only thing keeping them in business.



All of these childish arguments about the parks and their rules are beyond stupid. They're not the government, they are a private party who is allowing other people onto their property.


Yeah but like I said before its a BUSINESS, not someone's HOUSE. Big difference. Theyre serving the public and making money, not inviting someone in for tea and biscuits! There are certain things they cant do no matter weither its private property or not.



When you invite somebody onto your property you are subjected to certain rules of law that dictate what you must do in order to protect your guests. Therefore the parks set guidelines, whether you like them or not, in order to cover their butts in the majority of cases (negligence not withstanding).


There is no law that says they must make people wear shirts in order to protect themselves from any legal reprocussions. The likelyhood of anyone going shirtless in a park is minimal on its own, the chances of that person getting hurt are even more minimal and the chances of them sueing the park are even less and the remote chance of them winning the case is almost non-existant. Most courts would laugh at a case like this and basically tell the person if you chose to take your shirt off and get hurt because of it then its your fault, end of story.


When you go to the park, you purchase a ticket for admission onto their property. This ticket is a contract. They agree to allow you to come onto their property if you obey their rules and you agree to obey their rules in order to enjoy their property. If you breach the contract, you can be removed from their private property. END OF STORY!


That arguement is silly because they could use that for anything. You buying that ticket just shows that you paid to get into the park, it is not a contract that you sign your name on. Just because I buy the ticket doesnt mean I agree to their silly rules.


Parks are not the government and are not public property. All your childish arguments about they don't have a right to tell you 'X' is b.s., because they do have the right to dictate whatever they like (within the law of course) to anyone who enters onto their PRIVATE property.


The law says I can go shirtless, if they say i cant come in just because im shirtless thats as much discrimination as if they told anyone of a particular religion or sexual oreintation that they couldnt come in because they chose that lifestyle. Theyre just doing this because they dont respect the law, since they cant make a law banning shirts, they do the next best thing, they make a rule against going shirtless in their park and try to claim that because its private property that they can deny me my right to exercise my freedom under the law. Its just like it used to be with black voters, when they were allowed to vote under the law, the polling places made it so hard for them to be able to register to vote that it might as well have been illegal still. These parks are doing the same thing.


You're a troll and a foolish troll at that. Please start your ban of ALL parks at once.


Well I havent been to Six Flags in several years so ive already started it.


If you really think that I can't tell you how to behave on MY property, why don't you come on over and give it a try. When the police are physically removing you from my house and a restraining order in placed upon you, see how many people buy your b.s. theories then. Anarchy doesn't work!


Well your house isnt the same as an amusement park and besides ive got no reason to come to your house nor would I want to, shirtless or otherwise.


Actually, I bet your friends and family would agree with the park's rules.


Not if they knew those rules upset me and were keeping me from enjoying myself there.


Parks have rules, and those rules are expected of all guests regarding proper attire whether they like it or not. There are kids around that don't need to see explicit language on T-shirts, let alone people making an ass out of themselves for giving security a hard time over it. Yeah it's your body but your body is in THEIR park.


Well they dont need to be telling parents what their kids need to see or dont need to see, thats the parents job. I hate all these businesses feeling obligated to babysit other people's kids and decide for their parents what is right and wrong for them just because the parents are too lazy to take responsibility and do it themselves.
