Sometimes, it's the other visitors, not the rides, that ought to worry you
Written by Robert Niles
Plenty of brutal details have emerged about a May 27 attack at the tea cup ride in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. A thirysomething Orlando-area woman was left with chronic back injuries after a larger, older Alabama woman jumped her after the victim loaded two pairs of elementary-aged children on the spinning cup ride, according to court documents reported in the Orlando Sentinel.Tweet
The alleged attacker is facing felony charges.
Witnesses say that the alleged attacker shouted profanities and shoved a couple kids after accusing the victim of cutting in line. (Both ended up in the same load group on the ride.)
[commentary] Plenty of folks complain about what they believe to be unruly teenagers at parks such as those in the Six Flags chain. Personally, I'd rather wait with a gaggle of tatted-up teens than a pair of stressed-out Moms, any day of the year. Do *not* get near an angry mother in a theme park! [/commentary]
