Pokemon Go has absolutely taken the world by storm. There are many who are against it, but honestly, it's getting people out of their homes and walking. That's a good thing. Even if you are looking at your screens, you are still out in the world. That's a good step (literally).
But with anything, there's a right and wrong way to do it, so hopefully we'll be able to pass on some helpful hints, not for playing the game but how to actually conduct yourself while playing in a theme park.

NEVER go into a parks restricted area to get a Pokemon -
It's simply not worth it. Not only will you get thrown out of the park, but there is actual danger in going in a restricted area. It's there for your safety. You don't want to win a Darwin Award for trying to catch an Oosterdam (that's a Pokemon right)
Watch where you're going -
This is not only good advice when you're in a theme park but pretty much anywhere. You don't want Pokemon Go to become the next "Strollers in Disneyland" argument do you? This is doubly important when you are at parks that have resort transportation (like Main St USA).
We've already heard of somebody walking into a water hazard at a golf course, you don't want to be that person we're all laughing at.
NEVER try to catch a Pokemon while on a ride -
See tip number one. There might be one right in the loop of your favorite ride, but you don't want to be that guy who loses his phone and smacks yourself in the head with it should you drop it. Loose articles are not ok on most rides. You wouldn't drive while looking for Pokemon would you? (PLEASE don't drive while looking for Pokemon)
Check parks twitter pages to see where Pokemon are -
Quite a few parks are already posting up Pokemon in their parks, we've seen them from Dorney Park, World's of Fun, Carowinds and a few other so far. So it certainly seems like the parks are getting in on the fun. And who knows, maybe some in-park contests could be coming soon. If you follow the park rules and have fun with it, then this is going to be an awesome addition to your theme park day.
Don't cut in lines to get your Pokemon -
Just because you are playing a virtual game on your phone doesn't mean you get any kind of special access. If there is a Pokemon at the end of the 90 minute line, then wait in the 90 minute line. Not only do you get to catch a Pokemon, but you'll also get on an awesome ride at the end to celebrate.
What other tips do you have? Be sure to post them below and we'll add them to the article.
