^I hate hearing stories like that. Amusements parks are supposed to be fun and it kind of sucks when people take that away from other people enjoying the park.

No injuries, no weapons, no arrests, and only one person charged with "disturbance of peace", so not as bad as it sounds, at least IMHO.

WoF wouldn't be dealing with these constant fights if parents stopped using the park as daycare for their teens. If you have hundreds of unchaperoned kids let loose in a theme park, it's not surprising that they get unruly.

WoF isn't the only park having trouble with undisciplined teens, either. Silver Dollar City often has trouble on Young Christian's Weekend, with instances of graffiti left on the walls of ride queues (I've seen it in person; a couple of them were stupid enough to even put the date with their names) and teens being loud & unruly because they don't have anyone getting after them about their manners.

Yeah, saw this video and story in the news the other day. That's what you get when parents use the parks as cheap/free babysitting!

Everything about that video was shocking.

Good. The last thing we would want is any kind of legal deterrent or consequence for a mob action involving 300 potential suspects.

Eh, I'm all right with not bringing charges against teenagers. Go easy on the one person who started it, no charges for anyone else, that sounds right. Prosecutors have an obligation not to bring charges if the case against someone is not strong. They need to make sure they are spending the People's money wisely.

The park banned nine minors from the park after last Saturday.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Fury is back with audio and a lighting package. Like the old days.
Went to Cotton Blossom BBQ, it was good. I recommend the Pulled pork, it had some bark on it which holds
That smoky flavor, I couldn’t see a smoke ring on the brisket and it was one color, so a little disappointed there.
The sauces were good. The Original was spicy and tasted like a good Gates clone. The sweet sauce was really good to and still had some spice to it. The extra hot was just okay. Park was beautiful today

I really love the emphasis on theming this year!
