Nev. middle school pulls a Chevy Chase, visits closed theme park

The buses were loaded and the students were excited, but when they pulled up to Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo, Calif., they found the gates closed.
School officials at O'Brien Middle School in Reno, Nev. hired a tour company to plan the theme park trip to reward top students, but, um, it appears that no one from the school or the tour company bothered to check the park's calendar to see if it would be open.
Fortunately, no one appears to have done the Complete Chevy Chase and pulled a fake gun on a security officer to demand a turn on the closed rides. Perhaps next year, school officials might consider rewarding their top students, and themselves, with a little Internet access?
