It seems to me there is a much bigger problem in parks right now that people and the parks are neglecting. SMOKERS IN LINE
These past few weekends have been more than aweful. PKI and SFWoA have been the worst lately. This past weekend, EVERY haunted house line, and some ride lines, people thought they could just randomly light up and blow smoke around the whole que line.
HEY IDIOT SMOKERS: Don't you noticed all the dry leaves, dry constalks, haunted houses made out of wood, fencing made out of wood, all those haybales around?! Do you not have respect for those around you. Can't you wait for 30min until you get out of line?
Smokers of some sort will be the death of a park with in the next 10 years. All this flamable stuff at Halloween scares me with all the smokers.
Just last weekend. Someone was smoking in the line for the Beast, the guy smoked all the way up, then with out putting it out, he THREW IT OVER THE SIDE OF THE BEAST!! HELLO...See all the leaves and great wooden coaster you're standing on?!
SFWoA even had signs everywhere saying "No Smoking by order of the Banbridge Fire Department."
All I'm asking is that smokers have respect for those that want to breathe fresh oxygen and that parks inforce there own laws. CP and a few other parks do a nice job when they are busy. I saw so many cops and so many employees at all the parks do nothing about it. I have seen employees been asked to do something, and they do nothing. I'm not asking you to save the world, but when I ask some to put it out (to which I say thankyou), others just laugh.
If this law isn't enforced, the parks won't be around for much more to enjoy. Heck, just look at what a smoker did to Wyandot Lake last year.
Yes, this post may get closed, or someone will say do a search (and I have.) It's futile. Some things dont' get done with one letter. And some things don't get done until something or someone gets hurt. Parks need to be aware of this. They visit this site, and many other sites (as anyone knows...heck, it's easy to find out how they are doing.) This is just a voice stressing the need for follow ups.
PLEASE everyone must respect everyone...and respect the park.

We gave been down this road before. Do a search because a topic with plenty of replies about smoking at parks was discussed recently.
