I can't get excited about theme parks........ but I may have to go to Disney World (or is it Disney Land) in Orlando later this year. What are the rules for carrying in a theme park in Florida anyway.....
Be Alert and Stay Safe
Well, I have checked my state laws and there is nothing saying that I cant, so I wrote a letter to the powers that be and asked just for good measure. Then, I jumped on to the theme parks website and found nothing there either. So, I wrote to them and asked them about it. Waiting on a response.
As for the holster thing, a retention strap maybe the best method. I carry a full size pistol (XDm) and a fanny pack probably wont work out so well. Not to mention that my wife would make fun of me!
My family went to Fiesta Texas in San Antonio a couple of weeks ago, I left my pistol in my vehicle. Good thing, you had to go through a metal detector. I had a pocket knife and they even took that at the gate, they have a no knife policy. I got it back when we left at a pick up station outside the gate. Fiesta Texas is owned by Six Flags, so I would imagine all there parks are that way.
down here in the great state of ga. you can carry to six flags but, you must inform them so they can lock your baby up until you get out of the park. that's a catch 22 in my opinion. but we do follow the rules as responsible citizens, right?

Pretty sure this is a non-issue. I'd be surprised to find a theme park that allows you to carry.
"Theme" parks. So many reasons not to go. Barring the unnatural elements (ie, roller coaster rides), there are plenty of other places that hold greater interest for me. I'm more of a roll-your-own-fun type, preferring that over paying to be entertained. For me, it's not worth the hassle, the crowds, the obscene pricing, the disarmament or ejection if found out.
No particular illegality about entering a park, in Oregon.
Well here in WA, I just found out that its not illegal to carry in a theme park. However, the general manager of Silver Wood (the theme park) has sent me back an email TODAY telling me that its against park rules. Oh well, looks like they wont be getting my bussiness!!
Any place that charges admission to enter is usually restricted, but check your local laws as the tend to vary!!!!
I am sure many here will disagree with me on this but a Theme Park is not the place to go armed. If God forbid you should need to use your pistol, the risk to others is just too great. With the huge number of people ever were you go there is no way to safely discharge your weapon and not put others at risk. At the sound of the first shot people will be scrambling for cover and running into your line of fire. The danger of a pass through is just to scary to think about in such large crowds. If you feel you need to be armed carry some OC spray or a knife. I know we all have to make our own decisions on this but please think long and hard before you do.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
Nicely put foto, I believe even a small tazer might be legal?????
Just finished a day at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. They definitely have a no weapons policy and enforce it with metal detectors. (Last time I was there they even said no to my itty-bitty swiss army keychain knife--1.25" blade.) Since I knew that to be the case, both the itty-bitty knife and the XD stayed home today. Great thoughts, fotomaker57, on the issue with large crowds.

You may be a stable and reliable human being but just think of the mess if two Bangers or Outlaw Bikers got into it over colors in a high density environment. If you have the right to carry, so do they. Those of us who carry all the time have to make decisions. It's just the same as flying on an airplane.
