Themepark Nightmare!!

Pros:A good way to keep up with others when you split up.

Cons:No privacy, many others using it too.

The Bottom Line: Terrible for theme parks, but great for less crowded areas, like around the home.


So, we were planning on going to Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom last weekend and invited several friends to go along. Half of the group of 6 loved big thrill rides, the other half didn't. So I thought that picking up a pair of 2 way radios would be nice so that no one had to stand around and wait on others to do what they wanted and you would be able to check and see where each other was at any given time.
So I pick up a pair of the BellSouth 1010 PR 2-Way Family Radio 1010s at my local Walgreens and we head to the park.
As soon as we get there, we split into groups and each has a radio and we go our separate ways. The problem was that even though they have 14 channels on them, none of them were free and we heard all kinds of conversations on them from all the other (mostly kids) people using them. Then of course you have your variety that want to aggravate and hold down the receiver so that all you hear is the noise from where they are, example, music.... It's a handheld chat room when in an area where so many others are using them. The other problem is that, when separated from your group, you can't just change the channel and talk to who you need to because you both have to be on the same channel. So if others are "blocking" the channel by holding down their "talk" button, you are out of luck!!
It was more of a headache than anything else.
I guess if you want them for your kids to play with in the neighborhood, they'd be great!! They did work nicely when we used them at home. I'm sure there are other creative uses for them, I hope to discover them because I do own a set of these :)By the way, they also claim to have a 2 mile radius on them, but we haven't checked into that.
