I think it's indicative of what a bad place Six Flags and most of the amusement park industry is in. They can't get more bodies through the gate, so they have to try to wring every cent they can out of the people who do come in. The next step is a ride which suspends patrons upside down and shakes them, with an attendant underneath to sweep up all of the loose change, wallets, and valuables that fall out.
