If we're talking a gated *playground* then of course I don't let other children out! They could run onto a road or something equally as horrible! The play centres where I live don't have child gates, except the one that goes out the main entrance, so no, I don't let other children out there, either.
However, if we're talking Maccas, all my local Maccas have big, heavy doors to the play area from the restaurant area, not to any outside areas . If a child is opening it and running in and out on their own (as my older three do) then fine, the kids are usually running to the toilet or straight to their carer. IF I go to open the door to let my 3yo out (he can't always get the door open) and another kid wants out, who looks like they couldn't let themselves out, then I do a scan for the carer, exchange a nod/smile and let them out. If I couldn't see someone, then I wouldn't let them out, what if their carer was in the loo and the kid got all freaked out when they couldn't find them?

If another kid is standing at the gate I open it so they can't get out. Once my kids have their shoes on ill look around for their patent or ask the child where their patent is, if they give me the nod I let them out if I can't find them or they say no, I shut the door. Of course I tell the child I'm sorry and they need to wait for their patents before shutting the door.

I have never taken my kids to a McDonald's or an eatery with a play room so haven't given any thought to that one.
Our parks aren't gated.

Haven't read the replies yet but we were at Maccas the other day and I was letting DS1 in to play when a little boy slipped out the gate. I looked around to find his mum and check he was allowed out.
I thought this was common sense.
