Beer At Six Flags

WBAP's Mark Davis was discussing the proposal to have beer sold at Six Flags when he took a call from a guy who opposed the idea (although he had a redneck accent that would lead one to believe he would be very pro-Coors Light.) But this part was pretty funny. He said, "You know why they're doing it? They want all those drunks coming out of the new Cowboys' stadium after a game to come over and get drunk at Six Flags, too" Davis respectfully disagreed aptly pointing out that there would be no bigger beating than going to a Cowboy game and Six Flags in the same day. But the caller, who had said that "If you can't have fun at Six Flags without a beer then you probably need to go to AA", also want to add one more point. ("Go ahead, you're on a roll, said Davis"): "And if you are going to AA meetings, I've got some advice. You might not want to go to those that are held at Fantasy Ranch." Just kind of stopped me down. (But I think I ended up more entertained searching for old Six Flags photos. Anybody remember Skull Island (pic above)? More here -- And the "Execution Of A Yankee Spy" street show looks like great fun for the kids.)

Oh man, I remember those days! My parents took me there around the first year of its opening. Lots of open space! Not every spare inch dedicated to amusement.

Six flags is for kids and families to go to have fun and be entertained. I have never enjoyed seeing a bunch of loud mouthed drunks staggering around and being dumb as entertaining.

They don't need to sell alcohol at a place like Six Flags- there are enough tiddy bars to keep the drunks happy.

Anyone who thinks Six Flags is a wholesome, family environment hasn't been there in a while. Or maybe stayed in the kiddee area the whole time.

Drinking Beer + Amusement Rides = Barfing

What's "fantasy ranch"?

The OKC version of Six Flags is called Frontier City. They've served beer there for years. That was the greatest thing ever when I was kid drinking beer and ridin' the rides... I wish I was 15 again.

Yep, thats how I want to spend a Saturday with my kids; Drunk Rednecks, Drunk Mescans and Drunk Blacks. Been there enough to know, Gerry Curl, Low Rid'n Drawers, Fat Bellies, Big Mouths and cigarettes.
And Six Flags is stupid enough to consider the sale of alcohol, good luck, I'll see you'll after the riots and gang fights. Remember, when it breaks loose, keep your head down and run like hell. Don't attempt to ride the Tram back to your vehicle it'll already be turned over and burning by the time you get there and the little, white, skinny, kid, from Arlington whose job it was to drive the Tram, he'll be running south through the parking lot screaming like a little girl.

You people that think there will be drunks staggering around at six flags are dilusional.

When you consider that a beer at six flags will likely cost 8-10 bucks, no one will be able to afford to get drunk. Think about it. Why get drunk at the cost of 80-100 bucks when i can get s$#t-tanked at home for a total cost of about 10 bucks.

Simple economics.

Anybody been to Circus Circus in Vegas in the past decade? Of course, people can afford (and will) get drunk and be offensive in the presence of kids -- whether or not they've been to a Cowboys game coached by Wade Phillips.

4:55...you amuse me. You haven't been to six flags lately.

Last time I went, there was no alcohol being sold and there were plenty of offensive people. Some were offensive with their language and some with their clothing. (It should be illegal for a woman over the age of...lets say....35....to wear a tube top)

Memories -- I was there the day Linda Carter hosted the opening of the Spinnaker, what a ride.
