The park chain says that the locker policy helps speed up the loading and unloading process and cuts down on property theft. I say that it's mostly a money grab for Six Flags. Guests can make the decision, and assume the responsibility, whether to risk leaving anything valuable in loading stations. And if Six Flags' policy was focused solely on guests, the parks could offer complimentary lockers (as Universal Orlando does for some of its attractions). Instead it is nickel and dimeing its patrons and sacrificing goodwill in the process.
What do you think? Are you ticked off about Six Flags' locker policy? Do you think the company is getting loaded by requiring lockers and charging to use them? Or do you think the practice and the $1 fee is reasonable? Take the Mandatory Locker Policy poll, and join the conversation by clicking on "Comments" below.
