Fights breaking out at SFMM?

Thursday, June 16, 2005 10:56 PM
How big of a problem is this? How often do the fights actually break out. Have there been problems just this year, or are the fights ongoing occurances? Just wondering if it's a fluke or if it's been a problem there for a while.

Fights are going to happen, there's not much SFMM can do about it. I've seen them happen, and security comes a runnin' pretty quickly and handles the situation as well as can be expected. The security cannot be everywhere all the time watching everyone, so they do what they can to pick up the pieces.

My advice is if somebody who looks like trouble attempt to line jump ahead of you, just let them, it ain't worth getting beat up. Is it a "problem?" Yes. Is it a big enough problem that the average Joe Coaster Enthusiast should not go there in fear of getting socked? No.

I sarcastically post about this subject quite a bit. I've been to SFMM only twice in the last 36 months so I'm not a good source. I will however say that the last 2 times I visited the park, there were indeed some good fights.

Arre they scheduled? I mean, can you go up to the Dippin Dots guy and ask "What time does the 4pm gang fight start?"

And the response would be. "erm, 4pm!!"

No, the response would be "First rule of fight club is don't talk about fight club."

Maybe FightClub:The Ride was SFMM's new for 05 attraction...

If you want to stay away from fights I recommend never leaving your house, that is as long as your house is a place where fights don't occur.

Fights happen everywhere: movie theaters, malls, bars, sporting events, amusement parks, concerts or any other place that people congregate. Heck, I almost witnessed a fight at PKI! ;)

Very rarely is an innocent bystander going to be pulled into a fight against their will.

Ah, you could've taken them Incidentalist!

Been to a hockey game recently? Fights break out there all of the time.

Uh... Never mind there have been no hockey games recently :) So I guess all of the hockey players are at amusement parks? :)

Have you heard about that incident Wes? Or was it just a good guess?

I recently went to a boxing match and a hockey game broke out! Ok, that was sad, but so am I without the NHL. :( Not that they'd be playing at this time of year anyway.
