The Genesee County Sheriff's Department joined with Six Flags Darien Lake Friday night to investigate underage drinking at the amusement park's annual grad night, and ended up making 74 arrests. Most of those arrested were charged with unlawful posession of alcohol or marijuana. There was also an arrest made for selling alcohol to a minor.

mOOSH [yeah...that was sarcasm]
Looks like changing the times didn't help (as if it would??). The next step is to either have more visual police roaming the lot in golf carts or whatever (not undercover, as was indicated), or cancel it for a year to show that they (SFDL) mean business when they want to keep this a drug & alcohol free event.
It's kind of ashame... but even more ashame that it's not just a few bad-apples, but a whole tree of them. Sure, there were 74 arrests... but how many others got away?

I'm sure if they did a search the weekend after any prom they would find the same thing.
Does anyone know what happens to these kids after the arrest? A night in prison? Social Service? A letter to the parents?
Oh, DawgbyteII I couldn´t resist checking your profile after I read your post. According to your age, you are "officially" still a member of "today´s youth". So, cheers ;)
Some things like that can't be controlled with that many kids
