Wonder why SF's got complaints?

After looking at this picture I often wonder why Six Flags got complaints about litter in the park!?!

That's nothing....you should've seen just how bad the litter was behind Mind Eraser's station over the past 10 years.

At least they had the common sense to finally clean it up & put trash cans in the queue but it was a real shame to have to wait so long for that to finally be implemented.

To be honest, I never really noticed trash cans in any park(besides KW, of course) until I went back to GL last season. There is one every 3 feet at that park!

Cedar Fair does that all their parks. Which does them well since the parks are usually in tip top shape.

That is what makes the Batman: The Rides work so well...all the trash in the line becomes part of the theming. ;)

Perfect example of Cedar Fair trash can placement:

I'll give $100 to the first one that can find a Cedar Fair trash can that is over filled. Anyone?...

Yea I agree, Cedar Fair does a MUCH better job with trash management.

Besides, they hire WAY more sweepers for the midways.

Now I wish I had a photo of that one from the Iron Dragon queue. It was a badly-placed can located where it couldn't be emptied while the queue was full, which it was all day that day.

But while we snicker at Cedar Fair's (over)use of trash containers, the very presence of those cans makes a difference. You never have to look far to find a trash can at a Cedar Fair park. And when people can find trash cans, they are less likely to make a mess of the midway.

Your comment reminded me of this picture I took at SFStL in '03.

Edit: Oh yeah... it was in May... the beginning of the season.

^^ Yuck. A wall in the queue for Monstre at La Ronde looks like that.

It is also completely covered in graffiti.

Charming...

Those look cold - maybe you should cover them up.

It was kinda sad actually, as there were days at Geauga Lake when the number of Trashcans outnumbered guests 2:1.

That's true.

I often wonder why some people throw there trash on the ground even when they can't find a trash can. Maybe it was just the way I was raised but I would have never just thrown my trash anywhere.

I think part of the problem is that some parks place trashcans in the queues where they are hard to access by a park employee because of all the guests in the way. I saw this in action at PKD on opening day last year in the Scooby-Doo and the Haunted Mansion queue (which has very narrow pathways). It was very hot and that trashcan was overflowing not too far into the afternoon. I've also seen selective use of trashcans in the same queue. A good example I can remember was Medusa at Great Adventure. One trashcan was overflowing while the other one had plenty of room. I think parks make things worse when they go into queues and sell lemonade. Sure, they're taking advantage of the fact that you might be in a never ending line that might not be covered (and you're REALLY thirsty), but it just contributes to the trashcan problem.

By the way, I remember Six Flags Over Texas being very clean.
