    Any ideas on how to keep my iPhone 4 safe?
    Or, should I just not bring it.. I cant think of anything other than an old PSP case.

    I wouldn't bring it unless necessary. Which defeats the purpose of a cell phone because your supposed to be able to carry them with you everywhere. I wouldn't trust myself with my iPhone @ Magic Mountain unless I had an OtterBox for it...

    Be safe and leave it at home. Don't know if it can take the g forces on Goliath.

    Don't take it?
    I think there's hecka rollercoastesr.
    If you have like an old camera case that has a caribiner on it?
    You could hook the caribiner to your belt loops. And put it on your pocket. It won't fall out. I went ziplining over a canyon and put my camera and iPhone in there, and it was fine.

    put in a friend's bag or purse and before you get on a ride, leave it where passengers can leave their sunglasses,shoes,purses,backpacks,etc...

    I honestly don't get this. Every phone I've ever had, including the iPhone, has gone everywhere with me. Going on a water ride? Put the damn thing in a ziploc. Other than that, use a good case and take some reasonable precautions, but leave it behind? Why?!

    Put it in a zip lock bag. Put that in your front pocket. Then, from inside your pants, twist the pocket over so the phone can't come out.

    Oh, pull your pants back up.

    Meh. Put it in a baggie, then keep it deep in your pocket when you're not using it. Or avoid the drenching rides.

    The things are actually pretty rugged. I'd hate to advise "keep it at home" since you'd miss all the photo ops. But it'd probably be prudent not to be taking photos with it when you're pulling several g's on the better rides...

    Besides, it'll mostly be the heat this time of year that'll harm anything-- including you. Pickpockets and gangstas are other hazards to avoid.

    Have fun!

    Tatsu ate my wife's 1st gen iPhone... Out of my pocket.

    Both have been insured with StateFarm ever since.
    Never had an issue before that, then I lose a $600 phone. Don't be too reckless.

    Wear a zipper cargo shorts and zip it up. Can't go anywhere.

    Leaving it at home is silly. It's a phone, not some precious item.

    Dude don't bring it unless you have a pocket that can be zipped closed. I was there with my bro two weeks ago. His keys flew out of his pocket on tatsu, and an hour later his phone flew out on scream. I spent every ride with my hands over my pockets. You'll want to have them up in the air on X2!!

    Wow what is going on with this country? You really needed to come into a forum to ask people what you should do with a phone while you're at an amusement park? This isn't something you could figure out on your own? Pretty pathetic.
    freakin sandwich bag and a pocket.

    I rode Kingda Ka (the tallest and faster roller coaster in the world) two days ago with my iPhone 4 in a buttoned pants pocket... the iPhone only had a bumper on it... it was fine, no damage at all...

    I rode about 5 or 6 other coaster that same day as well... many looping and in excess of 70 mph

    Just be careful and use common sense... the phone will be fine

    Get 2 pairs of knee high socks and slip the phone between the 2 layers. This way you wont get your leg sweat or hair on the phone itself. The phone will stay 100% secure. Just make sure to push the phone down to your ankles before the ride begins.

    (your) iPhone 4 + Magic Mountian = HD vidjyo of many lulz.

    Oh make sure when (not if) your phone breaks that you get a reaction shot. Youtube loves reaction shots.

    This...in cargo shorts pocket. It's not complicated.

    Please do this in a restroom. Don't want to get an indecency arrest. ;)

    Take it with you. As others suggested use a zip lock bag for the water rides. If you wear cargo style shorts put in a side pocket and fasten the closed.

    I just spent the day at Islands of Adventure and Universal Orlando with no problems at all.

    They are pretty rugges as someone else said. Just use common sense.

    I took mine to Orlando for 4 days of amusement parks a couple of weeks ago and my iPhone survived just fine. Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and Universal Studios...and I rode all the big roller coasters and did the water rides in each park. Not even the new Harry Potter ride could harm it! I took reasonable precautions to protect it, including a ziplock bag for water rides. I didn't even think about not taking it since I wanted to take a lot of pic's and video. Btw-pic's and vid's look great.

    If your that worried, and rightly so, I'd use an older cellphone or not bring it at all. That way you can just relax and have a good time so you won't have to worry about your new iPhone 4 :D Come on you're on vacation!
