Whats with all the fights?

Tuesday, July 5, 2005 10:53 PM
Im kinda wondering whats with all of the fights recently. I mean arent we supposed to have fun at amusement parks. Does this have to do with all of the prices or offers that certain parks are offering so certain clientelle can engage in fighting. Why dont they just have Don King promote boxing matches at parks or something. But seriously what happens if someone brings a children to the park and they are thrown into the middle of something like this? The thing is we need to promote more safety in parks.

I have not seen any thing in parks this year and I have been to SFKK, Pki and CP 4 times this year but i have seen nothing but I feel it is people who are intoxicated because of the sale of alcoholic beverages in parks, so part of it might be the parks fault for selling alcohol in a family envionment. That is the thing parks will not do any thing about fights untill some little kid gets hurt or injured or untill someone gets killed. *** Edited 7/6/2005 3:11:46 AM UTC by mean streak 2007*** *** Edited 7/6/2005 3:12:22 AM UTC by mean streak 2007***

It's not just amusement parks. Anyplace that brings in thousands of people at one time has a higher probability of disagreements, etc. between people.

Can't really prevent the start of a fight. It's how quickly the park reacts to stop and control it.

I do agree Chitown. I also like the signature you have.

Yeh, here in Charlotte we had a big brawl last night at the downtown fireworks display. Security cameras caught a lot of it and the news says part of it was gang related.

It's really pretty sad that many of these large gatherings result in this kind of conduct.

Long lines, Hot temperatures, and line cutting.

...and teens who's parents would rather be "their friends" than their discipliners.

Or parents that just DROP their kids off all day at a park so they get a break. Those kids are the worst. They show off to their friends, swear, smoke, spit, the list goes on and it's just stupid.

I knew that KW had a policy no one under 18 or 19 allowed in the park without their parents. Works for me!

I know at least two of the fights this season have been reported as gang related. So no I wouldn't say it's alcohol. Long lines, Hot Temperatures and Line Cutting are probably contributers. Also no fear of consequences could be a factor. I loved one line my parents always told me and it is sooooooooooooo true, "you never know who knows you." I remeber walking in from being out with friends a few times and getting asked how as the mall when I didn't say to my parents I was going to the mall and then having to explain what happened. *** Edited 7/6/2005 1:15:36 PM UTC by dragonoffrost***

Some parks have really opened up this door of ambiguity as to what is line cutting. As parks reconfigure line cues the public's tolerance for line cutting becomes less, while not adding security to enforce the new systems.

Under some new line management systems people will wait three hours in the hot sun for one ride, while others won't wait at all. That's when some rowdy bunch pushes you out of the way for a front row seat. What would you do? *** Edited 7/6/2005 1:41:54 PM UTC by rc-madness***

I go to Sea Woirld with my friends all the time and I'm 15. However we don't do any of that stuff. The funniest thing we did was my friend saw a teletuby (HUGE) and screamed it out and ran over to it and gave it a big hug. The whole park was rolling!

We aren't saying all teenagers are the problem but some teeneagers are the problem. Yes in america some people do pay for the sins of others. Sorry but that is a sad fact of the world we live in.

You can't say because someone is a definite gang member they can't come in. But you can say "Due to park rules No one under age 18 admitted without a supervising adult." One is discriminatory the other is not. One gets the park sued the other doesn't.

Thats the exact same thing my parents do, i'm 16, sure we swear, and sometimes show off to our friends. But we never spit or smoke, we are curtious to others, unless they arn't curtious back. Infact I've seen worse adults then us. Waiting in line for Superman at SFA I saw more adults then kids cut in line. But they all got sent back by the security guard. It's not JUST kids, adults do it too.

What's with all the fights?

The pessimist in me says it's just another sign of the decline of civility that is a harbinger of the fall of our civilization.
