Six Flags is the latest to ban selfie sticks at its theme parks, NBC reported. It joins Disney on the list of amusement parks to outlaw the tourist item from use due to safety concerns.
The ban is taking affect at all Six Flags theme parks around the U.S.
“We strive to provide the safest possible environment in our parks and these devices pose a safety risk to guests and employees,” said Katy Enrique, a Six Flags communication manager, to NBC Chicago in a statement.
“The safety of our guests and employees is our top priority,” she added.
Selfie sticks have also been banned at many museums, festivals and other events around the U.S.
