Re:Orlando's waterparks ( Wet-n-Wild, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, etc.)

I too have been to all of these waterparks. At WnW I have seen women in full out t-back suits with no problems. Never seen a woman in one at the Disney parks though. Everytime i have gone i have had a thong in my bag hoping there would be a man there already in one where it could be more of an ice breaker. Never such luck. I have always worn speedo brand 1" suits in black or ligh blue when at these parks. I have never been the only speedo clad guy with the european crowds there. I have been perfectly comfortable but would love to know what it feels like to go down some of the slide in a thong. I bet you would fly down them.

I have never been this nervous thinking about wearing a thong in a public place (which is weird, I usually don't even think about it twice) could the US mentality be getting to me ? I hope not !

Eimeo - there was 1 other girl that had a really small bottoms on, that was a thong. It wasnt wide at the top or anything. The girl in line with me, hers was wide at the top (i guess like a brazilian cut bikini, where its wide at the top, but at the bottom your cheecks and crack shows.. sorry i dont know how else to put it).  There was another lady that had something small on too.. thats when i was at the locker.. it looked like high-cut boyshorts, you know those kinds of boyshort bottoms that dont cover your cheeks and show part of your crack too. She had that on, thats really what made me decide to wear mine around the park. And there were lots of brazilian bikinis... i didnt have a prob. 

You are definitely good to go with the boyshort one that u have and bodyglove. I really don't know about the g-string. I mean thats what I was saying earlier, is that i dunno how small you can go with them still being okay with it. I was basically "playing it safe" with the zebra one, just in case the staff complained, i could either  push it out (and it wont stay out) or change. But the pamphlets that they gave us in the park said nothing about thongs or g-strings, it only said not to wear anything with rivets, or exposed metal. if they wanted to enforce the thong rule, Im pretty sure it would be on the pamphlet and on the signs around the park.

I just took a momemt to go to the blizzard beach website, and again it says nothign about thongs, so I assume it is okay especially since they didn't seem bothered about it at all while I (and the other girls) were there.
here's the link, and clock on guest services. http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/parks/blizzard-beach/
It says "proper dress" so i assume they mean swimwear, and not t-shirts, shorts... shoes on etc...
But if you look at Aquatica website, it DOES say "no thongs" so they make it clear. At BB they're not really saying you can or can't.

you know...Its funny eimeo.  Although i dont actually "know" you.  I was saying to my husband that it seems like you have changed a bit in your attitude.  I attribute it to becoming a mom, which i know happend to me after my first child.  You used to post to flickr all the time.  Your pics would be topless, or wearing the smallest 457's that wicked weasel made.  You would be in a crowd of hundreds and didnt seem to care.  All of a sudden, your posts stopped (and you ever took down the ones that were up).  My hubby actually noticed it, as he would frequently converse with your husband about how much we liked the pictures.   It funny that you mentioned that now you are concerned about wearing a thong at the water park.  Like i said, i went through a phase where i was pretty self conscious about those type of things after my first child.  Happy to say, i came out of it and am pretty much back to where i was pre baby.  I was never as daring as you with my flickr posts, or even with wearing micro suits or going topless, but i have come back around to my old self again

Thanks Morena ! I decided .......... lol actually I didn't
but I will either wear my black WW 456 bottom with black WW 491 "surf shorts" over them and remove the shorts if I feel comfortable enough (the 456 have a triangle back and are tie-side)
or I might just wear a body glove (same as posted but blue instead of red)
my husband surprised me with a 7 day pass, and we can use the remaining 6 days whenever so I'll be going back anyway :)
stanpuppy, yes it is weird, although I still go to the beach topless and wearing my 456 wicked weasel suits (I need to loose a little more weight and exercise a bit more before I will wear 457 again). just last week we were at a regular beach and I walked from my car to the beach in my 456 (not topless though, I'd only do that in SoBe) and when I got on the beach I took my top off and my husband was like "are you sure you don't want to keep your top on?" lol

Yeah Eimeo you are brave. I wouldn't go topless though, i like to keep the tan line, a tiny one though. I wanted to wear a smaller thong but wore the zebra one just in case. and then my boyfriend was with me, and he doesnt like me wearing thongs to certain places cuz of how guys act, and comment right while he's there, but i wear it anyway, cuz I want to. So eimeo where do u go topless to the beach? I thought South Beach was the only place that allowed it?? And does your husband not get bothered about other men comments or staring.. (i dunno how rude they are like how they can be to me and my bf...)
Ok well let us know how it goes at the waterparks!!

eimeo, you have the best attitude, I can tell you must be in great shape and enjoy life fully....
I think that for a woman might be easier to get away with thonging at a water park. 
I've never done it myself, and I doubt I ever would.
All I know is that you are spot on about the slides;  I wore a Speedo when I slide and after a few seconds it becomes almost a thong, and that helps to speed up so much, there is no friction, it's amazing!!    Every time I reached the bottom, I had to pull my Speedos down again,  at the end I just kept the wedgie speedos on and went back up the stairs with my eldest son to queue again and slide down again and again.
Another important factor I've noticed on the water slide, is body hair.  Last time I went to a water park slide, I had just been full body waxed two days before.  Wow, it really felt like if my whole body had been rubbed with oil, I went down sooooo fast,  unbelievable!!!

The best suit to wear on a water park slide is definitely a thong.  As you said, less friction makes the slide faster and more thrilling.
Men not brave enough to wear just a thong at a water park (like myself) can get away with wearing a speedo or rio string bikini;  it would definitely become  a thong, and it could stay like that even going back up the stairs, don't think many people would care.

Went to Typhoon Lagoon last Tuesday, 9/15/09.  I had never been there  prior to this and didn't know what to expect.
What I saw surprised me.  99% of the Hispanic ladies wore a Brazilian cut bikini bottom.  You know the kind, very skimpy and offers only about 50% coverage at most.  It didn't matter what their over all shape was, they wore those lovely small bikinis.  I even saw two girls that couldn't have been 12 yrs old wearing these bikinis.  Their bottoms were so small that you could see the tops of the Butt-cracks above the tops of their bikinis.  I felt they were to young to be wearing them, but who am I to say so?

There were a few American ladies wearing these type too.  Not very many though.

I saw two or three thong bikinis and one thong one piece. 

Over all, it was a very nice experience. 

I was going to go back on Friday, but didn't make it.

The one piece thonger was an attractive 30ish lady. 

It wasn't a thong like you would have expected with a "T".  It was more like a narrow Brazilian back that was giving her a wedgie!

She looked great in it.  Her suit was black, she was a little pale and blond so it made a nice contrast with her over-all look.  I could tell she was a little shy about wearing it though.

 I've just come back from Orlando and visited Aquatica (sea worlds water park), a couple of Saturdays ago.  The website actually states No thongs are allowed as its a family water park, so I was surprised to see many ladies wearing 3/4 back suits, and thong bikinis.  They walked freely about, mainly around the beach areas, and weren't asked to cover up.

The suits although were thong/brazilian style they weren't too revealing.  No men were seen.

Havent checked back to read the board lately....
So, wow! I am surprised about what you said about Aquatica and what they wore there. Thats actually why i didnt want to go, because their site said they don't allow thongs. Wow, so  i will remember your experience for next summer. I bet they didnt say anyhting because, what, they have on a thong what r they gonna do go make them change?? They dont have extra suits. And i had the same experience as emieos TL experience from when i was at blizzard beach, no one cared and was still having fun and the staff didnt care whatsoever.
I still havent gone to wet n wild yet, and was thinking of going this Sunday and want to wear my thong, especially since the summer is almost over.

 This isnt a thong quetsion but does anybody know where I can park so I can avoid their $10 parking fee????????????????  (just somewhere free or cheap).  Im not getting a hotel im just gonna drive down, its not far.  And i know some of those hotels provide their own parking decals, so i dont want to use their lots and risk getting towed. This is my little vacation for me since my friends went last weekend and i had other issues that kept me from going, and ive been wanting to go since i moved here.. so yeah. And I worked all week and im back in college again (getting a certification) and been studying and worki$ng all week so yeah. And the summers almost over its not that hot anymore so yeah.

I am stunned at how different the public reacts to thongs vs. G's.  The difference is so minute, yet the reaction is so extreme.  My wife, for example will think nothing of wearing a thong at a hotel pool, yet would never ever consider a G.    You saw in the thread on the candidboard that even while some people complained about the g-string lady, the lifeguards responded with "there is nothing we can do".  Eimeo, I say if you want to wear your 456 G....go for it.  Since there is no legal issues here, it is really a matter of what you are comfortable in.

I am amazed at all the glowing reports of visits to Wet n Wild as my report of Friday October 2 is more of a bummer.    

After changing into my thong I sunned a bit on a lounger and went in the wave pool.  I then covered up with my towel and went to the lazy river.  All was well until I exited the lazy river when one of the security guards was there waiting for me.  I was in the process of grabbing my towel to cover up again when he informed me that there had been "complaints" about my swimsuit and that I would have to change.  I mentioned to him how the policy specifically allowed thongs and t-backs but he simply reiterated that he had received complaints and I would have to change.  I even mentioned that I had called the park to check on the policy beforehand, but he simply reiterated that I would have to either change or leave.  I tried to get more information from him, and assured him that I had not even talked to anyone, much less bothered them.  All he would say was something about "protecting the kids" (whatever that meant).     I had brought another suit, so I complied with his request and the rest of the day passed without incident.  I am curious as to whether anyone else has has such an experience, as most reports on this thread are overwhelmingly positive.  Once again, I suspect that the old "double standard" was at work.  But I am still annoyed that they would let one or two parents have effective veto power over any guest's choice of swimwear.  Surely that is taking "protecting the kids" to an inappropriate extreme.  In the half hour I had my thong on I stuck by myself and certainly did not bother anyone nor do anything to cause offense to anyone.    

I am in the process of filing a formal complaint with Wet n Wild.  Perhaps I simply encountered an over zealous security guard; hard to say.  It will be interesting to see what there response is.

No, davyj,
I understand your fustration. Me and my partner were kicked out of of hurricane harbour in arlington texas this past june for the same thing, and I refused to change, even though I was wearing a andrew christian laurel bikini ( http://www.andrewchristianshop.com/Laurel-Bikini-at-Andrew-PID10709-7129.aspx ). Now, I had extra linning sewed into it so there would be no shoing when wet. At the park, I wore it and me and him were enjoying our day, when I was told that I had to change because somebody made a complaint. Now, in the park rules, it sayd that swim attire must be fitting with a family environment, which is pretty vague, and I thought it was. Well, after talking with managment, apparently I was wrong for wearing hwat I was, even though it was allowed. Its funny how one person who has an opinion, and insteadofof just dealing with it and moving on, can make somedy elses day horrible.As I don;t wear shorts, I had to leave, cause I wasn;t gona buy any, thats for sure.

   chrguy606, I think the reaction you got was more to do with being two guys rather than that you were wearing a speedo. Sometimes peoples homophobia is wrapped up in some other justification. If it had been a man and a women then I don't believe there would have been a compliant in the first place and I don't believe management would have acted on it. 
    I would write their seniour management explaining that you think an error had been made and requesting they re-train their staff. If you come of all offended it will not do much, but if you come of from the point of view of attempting to help them train their staff better you may get further ahead. Don't mention you were two guys, just mention you and your partner, and keep it gender natural from that perspective.

    I think you would have had less reaction if the front of your suit was not white. Even if you sew in a liner so people cant actually see through it when wet, the way white fabric works is it still looks like you can see through because diffrent parts of the wet suit reflect light differently, and this depends on if there is something pressing on it from behind or just air.  So a white front suit can appear partly tanslucent even if it's not.  It may also appear underware like to some and that's another problem.  In situations like that I suggest you stick to dark colors, not white.

JM, 
 
   Not to hiujack this thread, but I did end up talking to corprate and told them the situation, and its just the way it was handled. I provided the link to the suit I was wearing, and I put black lining in addition to the lining that was already thre, so, there would be no possible way for skin to be seen through. honestly, it probablly was the fact that I was with another guy, as sad as that is. However, the fact is that I was told it was not suitable for a family environment, which is kinda vague, in terms of speedos. Now, if I was at the par wearing the same thing, but with a child in tow, would i have been told the same thing? Who knows. Anyways back to the main event, haha.

I think that you are too forgiving.  I would immediately demand to see the manager of the waterpark and point out that there have been others who have worn similar swimwear and they are discriminating against you.  If they still do not budge, then I would demand that my park entrance fee be returned to me immediately.
Just like the complainers take issue with the matter and set the standard, you need to do the same with more force.  This is the only way we will get to have our swimwear preference accepted.
Bottom line is that the one who makes the most noise gets his way.

Long story short, I really did do all the complaining I could do, and still nothing, so I just won;t be returning to that park. Funny thing is, we had gone to the water park in okc, adn I wore the same suit, and when I complained to the park about other patrons being jerks and the staff just let it happen, I got two free tickets from the management to come back.

 I called one of my friends from when I lived In florida and asked her if she knew what was up with Typhoon Lagoon. We used to go there a lot and it was more conservative back then. She said there was a lot drama in the  local news this summer about perv's grabbing girls at some of the other water parks including Wet n' Wild. So more people were going to the Disney parks. She said that they would have to toss half the girls from the park if they listened to all the complaints so the lifegaurds are just ignoring them now unless its right in front of them. My guess is that is why the security gaurd at Wet n wind was so strict. They are probably trying to clean up the image a little to keep from losing some of the money.

Anyways, she said that wearing a regular thong was not a big deal at Typhoon Lagoon any more, but she didn't believe anyone would be allowed to wear a g string. In the past I would like wear a thong to the park and be nicely asked to cover up.  A lifegaurd once even told me it would be ok to put my thong back on after the person complaining left the park.

I wish these complainers could mind their own business and stop using arbitrary terms to justify their strange agendas, but they won't. Making a big fuss will lead to a blanket ban on thongs, because that's the easiest solution. Then we've all lost out!
If we want to continue thonging we have to show some discretion in privately owned but public spaces because they set the rules, not us.
As a man I would just wear brief swimwear (not thongs) and leave it at that. Not what I want, but should keep the peace so to speak!

I would certainly never wear a thong. I would probably wear either a traditional style bikini or possibly ever a squarecut ( I have a tulio one that is just as "hot" as any bikini i own.   Sorry...but sometimes you just have to use discretion.  Men in brief swimwear are viewed differently by the general public than women in brief swimwear.  You may not like it, but that is the way it is.  A guy wearing a thong at a public swimpark in the US is just inviting trouble.
Really, it is the same for women as well.  I would be perfectly fine with my wife wearing a thong at one of these parks.  I would not be comfortable (nor would she ever even consider) with a G-string on her.  Even though the buttocks are almost completely exposed on both styles, the perception of each is very different. I dont know why...it just is.
This board is about promoting the use and acceptance of skimpy swimwear for all.  Sometimes, you have to pick your battles to win the war.  This is one that I would let go, or else...as most have already articulated...they will ban anything that is not dork shorts and one piece tanks, and we will all lose

like I said before, "skimpy" speedos must be totally acceptable at Disney parks because they sell them IN the parks, they had more speedo choices than dork short choices for men.

I got curious about this topic, so I actually took the time to go to the wet-n-wild site and read the policy.  It is pretty clear

14. Are T-back bathing suits allowed to be worn in the park?
Yes, however, as Wet 'n Wild is a family water park we do reserve the right to ask you to cover up.

To me this says, wear whatever you want (thong, G, rio, bikini, etc.).  As long as nobody complains, you are golden.  If someone complains, and the staff asks you to cover up...you should comply.  I think it is awesome that a place actually calls out t-back suits in their policy and is accepting of i

Is there actually such a thing as a Mickey Mouse speedo? If so, I'd love to buy one too. I've got Mickey Mouse ties, and other clothing, so why not a speedo? I think that would be so cool!

I agree with Matchingthong.  Its just the nature of the beast, some you win and some you lose.

I've never had a problem at wet n wild and have good banter (chat) with the lifeguards.  However, there are some men out there that are not happy with wearing traditional style thongs, and like to push the boundaries.  Unfortunately, this leads to a blanket policy to the extreme of not being allowed, and i'm not pointing the finger to anyone here.

We also have to appreciate these places are privately owned and can change the rules if they like, so there is no point in arguing.  I run a sucessful company and if a customer demanded to wear a particular type of clothing which I wasn't happy, with I would simply just show them the door.

There are loads of places to thong in public, so lets not concentrate on the negative side of a few organisations who don't like or have changed there policy, and start spreading the word of those that are cool with it and do allow.

There are always two sides to each story.

I have to believe that if you are minding yourself in a thong or speedo, whether you are with another man or woman, the last thing on the park attendants list of things to do is to have to tell someone to cover up.  More likely the offenders were doing something else and not the fact that he was with another guy.

Theres a lot of guys on here who like wearing cockrings under thier suits for the "bulge effect".  Not everyone wants to see your emphasized bulge, just like not everyone wants to see a clearly visible camel toe.

Stop drawing extra attention to yourselves in public spaces.  And when asked to cover up, cover up instead of fighting the issue with the attendant who is just doing thier job.  Your rights are not being violated, just drop it and go on with your day.

Thanks everybody for your comments.  I know Wet n Wild "reserved the right to ask you to cover up".  I was mostly surprised at how quickly they singled me out.  And it would have been nice to know ahead of time, as then I might have chosen a different park.  Of course I agree that, being private property, they have the right to make whatever rules they choose.   I posted the comment primarily because I don't think I had ever seen a negative comment about Wet n Wild on this board previously, and I wanted everybody to know that you were not automatically ok with your thong at Wet n Wild.  Even on an out-of-season weekday when the park was not crowded.  Next time maybe I'll try typhoon lagoon.

I've been to Wet N Wild once and I wore a Wicked Weasel G string (we only went because we had won 4 passes at a contest) I had no problems, just one comment from a chick that was kinda pissed that her bf was looking at me and she said "why the F is she wearing a gstring here anyway" lol oops !

at wet n wild I remember seeing I think 2 or 3 other girls in thongs (that was back in 2004), at Typhoon Lagoon I was the only one in a thong, there was one girl in one of those boyshorts that are pretty much like a thong but thicker sides, and a few brazilian cut bikinis but that's it, I think my husband may have a few pics in his Flickr album. I showed him that website where the vid was, he said he was thinking of uploading his SoBe pics there but not at that price lol.

I have seen the thong rules change at a Canadian Hot Springs after a couple of men pushed the window wearing exposure suits.  Management offered us free suits off the rack in their swim shop as compensation.  Another private lake here in Ohio struggled for two years over the thong issue.  Women and men could and did thong at a free beach less than 5 miles away.  Finally, after a lot of consideration, polling of their clients (including those in the attached RV park), considerations of making thong friendly days or hours, etc. they stopped permitting thongs after being muscled by a couple of religious day camps which used the lake for group swimming a few times a day.  They looked at the decision as financial and didn't want to loose the camp business (but they had no place else to go but the already thong permitting state park beach).  The season after the rules changed, the lake went into foreclosure or recievership or something similar and is now out of business.  The day camps were forced to use the state park (like everyone else) and their little ones were forced to deal with the occational thong clad beach goer.  While the failure of the business was probably not entirely thong related (or even partially related) is shows how business management can be forced by an apparently strong financial interest to stop permitting thongs even when the actual financial consequences are minimal or maybe even non-existant. At least they tried to accomodate thongers and did a little research, taking two seasons before finally no longer accomodating their thong wearing customers.

After my "not great" experience at Wet n Wild, and since many people have commented favorably on Typhoon Lagoon, I decided to ask them about their policy.  It took them over 10 days to respond, but they said:  
"We ask all guests visiting our water parks to wear swim attire that is
appropriate for a family-oriented park atmosphere.  With this in mind,
thong bikinis are not acceptable for our resort.  In addition, topless
sun bathing is not permitted, nor is swim attire with rivets, buckles or
exposed metal."  So, obviously enforcement is quite selective and much depends on which park personnel are working that day as well as a bunch of other stuff.  And I am sure enforcement is much more lax with women than men.

Well - I tried Wet n' Wild again today.  After my first experience last year, I couldn't believe DavyJ's experience.  I can now report that DavyJ was entirely accurate - Wet n' Wild is no longer thong tolerant (at least not for men).  I was there for about 25 minutes this afternoon when "Rob" with security came by and said that they had received some complaints and asked if I had anything else to change into.  I told him "no" and he said I would have to leave the park.  I demanded a refund of my money, since I'd only been there for less than 1/2 hour, and thankfully they gave it to me.

I was wearing an Olaf Benz swim thong - 1" sides (wide front, not narrow front), by all accounts my most conservative thong (save my speedo thong).  The worst part is, when I was walking around I saw an older lady sunning topless (I'm serious!)  Do you think she was kicked out? 

I'm going to send them an email this weekend when I figure out the appropriate wording.  In the meantime, I recommend we all boycott Wet n' Wild and recommend that other people do the same.
