"Roller coaster enthusiast celebrity" (roll eyes) Rob A. films on coasters all of the time.

I have never talked to or meet Rob, but from what I understand he does get park permission first. It is important to note that camera's and video cameras are allowed on roller coasters only if you get park permission first.

I believe that six flags will kick people out of the park for 6 years if they are seen with a camera or video camera on a ride! atleast that was the case last summer. I have no problem with that rule because theoretically you could KILL SOMEONE if you dropped the camera the right way!

I now have a couple more people on here that have lost all respect from me. And many who I respect more.

Really? From this thread?

I think it's because he's never really liked hobos and skanky hookers. :)

What makes onride photography safe because a park allows it?

A) I never said anything about safety.

B) I do feel that on ride photography can be safe on certain coasters. But if the park says no, then I don't.

If a park allows it, you take the risk in your own hands. I'd imagine that car accidents are far more likely to kill or harm you than on ride photography, though.

My comment was in regards to your Item B, but in reverse. Just because a park says it is OK to take pictures, does that make it safe? As an example, I am prohibited from taking pictures on the kid's woodie at Kings Island but I am allowed to take pictures while on Tornado at Stricker's Grove. I would argue that Tornado is a worse coaster to take pictures from as a couple of spots really throw you around. Does the fact that Stricker's lets you take pictures make it right? My opinion is no. I agree I am not breaking a park rule but I don't think that makes it OK to do.

I'm not arguing what your or my opinion is here, and that wasn't the argument anyone was making prior. If a park doesn't have any policy against something, you may or may not agree with it, and I may have a differing opinion. Where you may draw the line, I may not. But when a park draws the line, it's expected upon payment to enter that you will not cross that line.

Perhaps. But then, I've never claimed to be cool. :)

Cool video man. That's the quality I'd expect from someone recording with a phone on top of MF but cool none the less. If I were stuck on top of a ride like that you can bet I'd take my phone out too. Too bad no one thought to do that on top of a TTD stall.

I have been stuck at the top of MF for 20 minutes. I already know what an awesome view it is. It was awesome at first, but then I started getting bored and chilly. ;) I did watch about the first couple of seconds of that video until it started getting blury.

I would rather keep my expensive phone and camera fully secured, thank you. :) I few times I tried on-ride photography I sucked at it, so I stopped before I started. It's just way too cumbersome and troublesome. I would be especially scared of losing my stuff on top of a lift hill like that. It's not worth the possible consequences. Then again, a lot of people don't think. I see it all the time.

Most if not all of the amateur on-ride photography people put on YouTube is s***, let alone illegal. It still amazes me what people will try to do on rides, like talk on their cells while going up a lift hill. WTF? You can't wait for 2 freakin' minutes?

Maybe all parks should put out a case of lost cells, cameras, and Ipods near each of their biggest coasters like KI did with Diamondback as a deterrent.

Then again stupidity will prevail regardless.
