"Amusement park" means a permanent indoor or outdoor facility or park (Check) where amusement rides (only one certified by the state, the Zilker Zephyr) are available for use by the public that is located in a county with a population of more than one million (Check), encompasses at least 75 acres in surface area (Check - Zilker Park is 350 Acres), is enclosed with access only through controlled entries (Nope), is open for operation more than 120 days in each calendar year (Yep), and has security guards on the premises at all times (Nope). The term does not include any public or private driveway, street, sidewalk or walkway, parking lot, parking garage, or other parking area.
So they fail the Amusement Park definition on two counts: Enclosed with access only through controlled entries and security guards at all times.
And guess where I'm going tomorrow to get some nice pictures for the AG?
Drove through Zilker Park today and didn't see any signs that would be prominent enough (or new enough) to be a legal 30.06 or 30.07. However, driving by the Palmer Events Center, it looked like EVERY door had (probably) a 30.07 on it. Didn't go back to look or get pictures.
Palmer and Auditorium Shores are owned by the city:
Palmer Events Center: http://propaccess.traviscad.org/clientd ... _id=103843
Auditorium Shores: http://propaccess.traviscad.org/clientd ... _id=190736
So if either of these have a 30.06 on them, they need to be sent to the AG.
Auditorium Shores has a Red TABC License, so you can't carry there anyway.
