In this commercial there is a guy on the front seat on one of the coasters that is in a corkscrew loop. He has his arms extended and appears to be holding a hat in one of his hands. Not a very good picture for the GP. Isn't this totally against all park rules??
Am I seeing things? When I first saw the commercial I was thinking: "What is this idiot doing with this stuff in his hand and why did Six Flags allow this to happen."

Parks show all kinds of things that aren't allowed. I noticed in SFA commercials that the riders on Batwing all have their arms extended even though there are signs around the ride stating that it's against the rules. This is not the first time I've seen this sort of thing in commercials. I don't know why the parks do it but it happens.

Cedar Point makes sure to that in all of their ads that the rider's hands are down on the coasters. As silly as it seems to some of us, it's great to see that they are following that guideline, it looks very professional.

Looks very non enetertaining. I love looking at Six Flags brochures compared to Cedar Point ones. Six Flags ones always look more fun to me with people all with thee hands up etc etc. In Cedar Point brochures everyone has the white knuckle grip of death on the coasters. Or how bout the ya wanna ya gotta ya have to hold on and Cedar Point hold on. OMG those commercials were annoying.
I think they need to go back to the Amazement Park commercials. Kinda goes with SFMM and The Extreme Park. (Yes I know they don't compete)

What about Scooby Doo? Also, a little off topic but not too far, I was at PCW the other day and saw Superman and Batman shirts in the stores. How is this possible? Are Paramount and Six Flags under the same ownership? What's the deal?
Yes I'm 15, no I'm not childish, I'm not being sarcastic, well maybe I do have somewhat of an ego...

I've never seen any signs or heard any warnings on Batwing about extending your arms while riding being against park regulations.

For what it's worth, on some coasters, they tell you to carry whatever you have w/ you. Boss, for instance. I saw a brochure get lost on that one.
