Mom suing Dorney Park....because her daughter got scared???

Good morning readers!!!!

So this article is basically me venting about the stupidity of park visitors.  Now obviously everyone has done some stupid things in their lives; it's part of making us better and smarter and blah blah blah.  So try to imagine my surprise/head shaking when I read a recent article that came out of Dorney Park.

The short version is that some teenage girl was visiting during Halloween 2017 and she didn't want to be scared so she told the park cast to leave her alone and they didn't.  So when they went to scare her again she fell and got hurt.  Here's one article about the whole situation if you want to read it.

NOW I'm not saying that getting hurt it the stupid part; honestly I'm an accident waiting to happen everyday.  I'm my own portrayal of Murphy's Law in life-you name it then I've probably gotten hurt from it: I seriously twisted my ankle falling UP STAIRS once.  So I would never make fun of someone getting hurt.

Now the reason I am writing this article instead of Carrie is because that crazy ass women LOVES to be scared while I don't.  I will do everything in my power to avoid being scared; I don't go to haunted houses or Halloween events or even watch scary movies.  Being scared is so far from my favorite thing that I will generally fight tooth and nail to avoid being put in the situation.

So to address the article then.  The mother states that Dorney Park did not make it obvious for her daughter to know that there were "No Boo" badges available for her to purchase.  This is just plain being a non observant visitor because on the website I found the No Boo badges explanation immediately and it states that a patron can be a badge at any merchandise location in the park meaning that there would be posted signs in the park.

The article also mentions that the girl asked the workers to leave her alone, but most people know that that is an open invitation for them to really come after you.  So honestly how ridiculous can someone be????!!!  This is like one of those rules that you don't know where you learned it from but you learned it somewhere to never tell anyone to leave you alone in a haunt.

If you haven't figured out by now I find this whole situation BEYOND ridiculous!!! Dorney Park made it quite clear the options to go through the haunt whether you want to be scared or not.  At a certain point the patron has to take some semblance of responsibility for their visit; you don't want to be scared either don't flipping go to A HAUNTED HOUSE type event or look up options that work for your visit.

No matter your own thoughts on the whole thing the bottom line is that at some point you, as an amusement park visitor, have to be responsible for your own safety and well being when visiting.
