When you visit Lake Winnepesaukah, you will now see a sign that reads: no selfie sticks allowed.
Cameras are welcome when families come to enjoy the Jumbo Elephants, the Frog Hopper or the Wacky Worm at the Rossville amusement park.
But before the park opened this season, Lake Winnepesaukah officials placed the selfie stick on its list of banned items, alongside alcohol and profanity-laced clothing.
Talley Green, the park’s public relations director, said the 3-foot-long sticks are safety hazards.
Selfie sticks have been everywhere for the last year or so. The stick, an extender that grips a cellphone and allows users to take a wider-than-normal picture of themselves and their friends, has been one of the hottest items in the country.
Green said this week the park has not had any problems with people bringing selfie sticks inside, there’s just simply no need because park employees will take group pictures for free.
