Even thou the wrong person was implicated it is a good question.  For an example TTP has photos on her Facebook page.  I wonder what she would say to me if I took pictures of her kids and posted them on my Facebook page.   (I don’t know if she had permission to take the photos, it’s only a question) I believe the parks have signs up as you enter that the park telling you they might take photos of you etc etc.

Thought I'd have a look at this while I'm here. It's much smaller than I expected, very small really, and has nothing to interact with except lots of small water jets. 

I could see little kids were having a bit of fun, but really nothing special at all.

The volcano has a large hole in the back of it, which I can only assume is there for a reason. However the volcano is so small and set back from the splash area that it would be barely noticeable if there was an "eruption".

But you did aim it at him and got it wrong, just saying.

On another note, that post seems to be quite popular on SW’s FB page. Who knew a giant splash area would be in such high demand among families?

Yes I did, but I corrected once found it’s from sea world, but also added in it’s not just the magician, it’s all these wanna be bloggers. Just saying.

random adolescent\adult male with camera shooting photos of kids in their togs

Am I the only one who finds it weird a guy taking photos of kids automatically raises questions but someone female would get a pass

It's how it is. People just assume women have kids, so they must be taking photos of their kids. Though I imagine anyone looking a little strange (ie, obviously by themselves, not just taking the usual family snaps) is likely to get questioned and maybe escorted from the area if they are taking photos of partially dressed kids in a water area. I can also imagine that it takes a bit of interaction on the part of park guests to maybe bring it to the attention of one of the ride attendants or something too.

And the fact that it's come to all this is friken sad. 

Something wrong in the world where you're assumed to be a pedo until proven otherwise :(

Checked out the area this morning, and must say that it has been really well done and was very popular. There seems to be plenty of shading and seating at the moment, but I can see the need for even more over the coming weeks. The area was very colourful and I think its a great replacement for the water park.

One slight issue I have though is, despite the volcano being very impressive when down in the area, and from a few aspects throughout the park.

If you go higher up, or even from some positions in 'The Reef' area, the illusion of the Volcano is ruined. Which is a real shame because it does look great, but when it looks like its been chopped in half or just randomly placed there, not so much

I don't know about budgets for this sort of thing, but isn't a meter or so of rockwork a really cheap way to save a buck? I think some new plantings may have helped this issue somewhat though since those photos...
