I am not sure if this will do anything. What is the point? Are there many problems with young children in the Parks?
I am surprised 14 is the cutoff. I can see sending a 14 year old back for something in the hotel. I would have said under 10. either way, though, parents should be parenting their kids and not just dumping them off someplace to fend for themselves.
On that note, maybe they should raise it to 16. The vast majority will have an ID (license) by then, enabling them to actually check. I wouldn't be surprised to see more parks adopt this rule in the near future.
Because if they don't, someday soon they will stop some kid, maybe a minority, and they'll get labelled as racists for letting white 13-year-olds in the park and stopping black 13-year-olds. Or just get sued for discriminating, whether it's a minority thing or not.
You don't make rules just so you can randomly enforce them. That isn't fair.
BTW, at lot of swimming pools have rules about ages, but generally the age is 12. Either you have to BE twelve, or you have to be OVER 12.
Lastly, if you don't have a rule that says the kid has to be escorted by an adult, how are you going to claim you have any rational basis for the rule? So a parent who has free time can come to the park with their kid and escort them to the gate and send them in, but if the kid's parents have to work, and the kid gets out of school and comes on a bus, he can't get in?
