Reminder About Leaving Stuff In Boomerang Bay

Recommended Posts

Since the discussions have been primarily about reputations, I don't see why 7 years or 7 days make much of a difference.

It happened. It is also good that it has not been a rash of incidents.

It doesn't take long for a reputation to change. I submit, for example, that SFKK would be open today had not the Superman: Tower of Power incident occurred. The park got a reputation for being less than safe, and business fell precipitously.

^ It is rather safe to say the example of the incident and subsequent safety reputation at SFKK is much worse than the thefts of unattended personal belongings at various parks.

The posts that are finger pointing to the park's own employees aren't a happy note. From the behavior of KI employees, that would have never entered my mind.

I never went to a Six Flags to see it for myself, I never felt the need to go, and now, probably will never feel the need in the future.

Kings Island PR blocks a user if they report a theft on his fb page.

Doesn't just remove the posts, doesn't contact the user with any explanation, like, "Our security is working to alleviate this scenario, I'm sorry this happened, but i'm simply going to have to remove this nonhappy post."

Just blocks, without thinking the FB poster has friends and family members that can still post. It's not a kick in the teeth, more like a wiggling of opened toed socked feet in one's face, but still, there's the wiggle.

No it is not.

Employee theft is a concern for most businesses. It is also more difficult to catch the criminal since most security measures are pointed "out" instead of "in" (if you understand my meaning).

When I owned my business, I would have friends go in and "check" my staff from time to time to be sure all items were being accounted for.

Some intresting things I found:

Integrity– Lastly, at all Cedar Fair parks, employees follow the principle of integrity. A person of integrity is honest in his dealings with supervisors, guests and co-workers, and in his handling of company money, property and time. Other examples of integrity may include doing the best job possible at all times, being fair and showing respect for everyone you come in contact with, helping fellow crew members when needed, treating all guests as you would want to be treated, turning in all lost and found articles to the appropriate authority, and always reporting for work properly groomed and in a clean uniform. Integrity is the glue that binds the other four cornerstones together.

That pretty much sums up the security and employees I was dealing with. What business did you have?

But this! They are too old to be doing that! And she is definitely TOO OLD to be wearing those tiny pants.

Bar/ restaurant.

It was a dream of mine, and I was lucky enough to do it, and I'm lucky to be out of it. ;)

Once at BB i left my brand new sandals under a chair and went to some slides and when i got back to my chair my brand new sandals were gone and an old broken pair of the same type and size were there... someone actually took my sandals and replaced them with their piece of junk sandals.

To be fair, Kings Island's Facebook page is for people to leave general comments, suggestions, even those general compliments and complaints. But if you have a specific, personal safety issue, you're MUCH better off calling or emailing the park. I could agree that blocking you off the page was wrong, but I'm not surprised by that action, as some issues should be kept private, off a public Facebook wall.

I had a bag stolen in June that had a 7 yr old camera in it....and my brand new Blackberry Torch. <_< Definately sucked. I also had a towel taken. I wasn't terribly upset as we had another towel, and the stolen one was like, 5 years old. lol My mom and I were a little grossed out cuz really, how did that person know we didn't just take our used bath towel to the park with us? (we didn't lol) We swear up and down the only reason both weren't taken was because of the rather large hair dye stain on the one that was left...that kind of looks like old blood. :lol: We're gonna take that one from now on. :P

I'm sorry to hear that happened, believe me, you have my sympathies. I know how you feel. It makes you look at people differently. Losing a new Torch is a pain, but also that you had that camera for seven years, and let's face it, we develop emotional attachments to our things. It's awful to have in the back of your mind that you took good care of your camera, to make it last, and now some lazy crumb bum has it.

Oh, totally! And it really wasn't the camera itself that I was upset about, we were actually getting ready to replace it anyway. It was the 2 years worth of pictures I lost, and only half of which were backed up in some way. Losing memories like that was awful.
