If this is what it takes to knock off the nonsense, then so be it.

Absolutely. Sadly, Valleyfair has been the scene of unruly behavior, not to mention downright assault. Why a business would or should allow unsupervised minors to run around willy-nilly, or why they should serve as babysitting service is beyond me. Kings Island always seemed like one of the prime offenders. I’ve seen the line of cars in the morning dropping off kids before heading to work.

I love it when I can legitimately use willy-nilly in a sentence.

I was there at pass-holder previews with my family. I have a younger brother in elementary school but honestly there wasn’t much of difference in how the park felt. I was still able to do stuff in the park just me and my brother even though I am still a few years away from 21 while my mom just sat on a bench.
