I'm sure some people just aren't aware of how anything works in a park, but for some of us, we are forced over to intermediate park terrain because the mountain doesn't have anything set up in the beginner parks.
I see what you mean. Forest does have the smaller jumps at the lower half. Also, he could practice on the rollers or the "sister" jump, but not the big kicker.
I'm sure that if you had seen us, we would have been included in your "problem" group of people.
If you know and taught your son the rules, waited your turn, and he simply didn't make it up the ramp, we don't have a problem. As long as he's not cutting people off on the takeoffs and landings without waiting his turn then we at least have time to avoid any possible collisions.
My kids love the jumps and it is really disappointing every time we go to main and they don't have anything set up. If the mountain did ever consider park passes it would be even more crucial for them to consistently have the smaller style jumps set up so beginners aren't forced into the more advanced terrain.
Thanks for pointing that out, that's very true. we all used to be beginners at some point, at one point we did have to upgrade to the larger jumps. During that time someone had to teach us the rules, whether it was a friend, or another guest yelling at us for creating a hazard.
As I stated before, I don't think a park specific lift will be any help. Sometimes I take Thunderbound to head down to the Mill ASAP so I can get over to Goldrush if I'm trying to get to Eagle before the lifts close. If I were to jump on Broadway I might miss that 4:02 Lift at Goldrush. My only suggestion is again, to have hosts kindly informing guests in the park the proper rules... though I'm guessing the reason there isn't already is that it changes the whole mood if you have a park Nazi keeping the man down LOL
