That remind me.... I miss the Skyway.

Scary woman

When my daughter started dating I dusted off my marksman trophy's and placed them in a prominent place. My husband worked nights and I was the only around to scare folks into behaving appropriately. I think it worked well as I have heard from more than one young man who said he did not date my daughter because of me. My daughter has not forgiven me but she is married well and happily and that works for me.

One time while in Epcot with my friend Mousermerf, we witnessed a guest who was trying to get in to the park completely dressed as 1980s icon Erik Estrada. We saw security approach him and tell him he could not wear that outfit in the park. Pretty funny to see a security guard telling 1980s icon Erik Estrada lookalike that they couldn't come in the park.

We shared some laughs, some tears, and blood.

Fascinating thread! I haven't witnessed anything, but I did see two undercover guys at DTD this July. I don't know how they moved so quickly in some instances. One minute I'd see them one place, and then another minute I'd see them somewhere else that seemed pretty far away.

Both - they have some security watching surveillance and some walking the parks. They even ride the rides, etc.

I think it's great that Disney takes such an active role in protecting the guests. I've always wondered how they keep everything under control, especially, during the busy seasons.

P.S.

I German Shepards, they are the BEST!!

Just wanted to say... Hi Christa. My name is Christa too. Even spelled the same way.

She was really struggling to get up the ramp and I was actually getting ready to tell DH to offer to help them out (he is a never get involved kind of person for the most part). There was a turn and I saw her struggling to get around it and she lost her balance and went down hard.

Of course we immediately went to her to check on her. She was really shaken up and I was worried she might have really hurt her hip or arm. I told DH to go and find some help. He ran back down and couldn't find anyone around outside the stadium. He came back up and went into the stadium and I think found a girl who just sort of shrugged her shoulders and said she was busy. He ended up knocking on the door of the sound booth and telling them someone was hurt and needed help. They weren't very concerned but did call someone. Took forever for a manager to arrive. By this time we had gotten her up and put her in the wheelchair. DH pushed her up the rest of the way into the stadium where the management person met us.

She was not very helpful. I told her that I thought they needed another wheelchair or ECV or someone to assist them to get back to the front of the park and she said there was nothing she could do. So then I asked her to get the woman a glass of water (she really needed one)-- nope, couldn't do that. By this time my "don't get involved" husband was pissed! DH ended up going all the way back out of the stadium, finding a vendor and getting her a water bottle and glass of ice. They wanted to stay and watch the show (partially because she needed to sit down and rest in the shade at that point) so we checked on them again after it was over and offered to help them. DH pushed the wc back down the ramp for them (can't remember who was in it, the man or woman). We wanted to take them back to the front of the park or to find first aid but they told us they would be okay and to just go on with our day.

We could not believe that no one that worked there would offer any assistance and do anything to help them. We couldn't find anyone to help and the help we got was useless. I know that woman ended up with at least some nasty bruises and she really needed to be checked out.
I also have had a bad experience at a Six Flags Magic Mountain in California. I can't speak on it now because have not been there for some time but when I was there it was like gang central nothing but gangs trying to be little bad ***'s and I knew this going into the park because I had gone many times before but I mean thats were you go if your in Cali ( has the best thrill rides).

So It was my soon to be wife my younger brother maybe 17 at the time and me. We are waiting to get on Goliath and there is 2 gangster type guys behind us just talking smack about everyone in line ,being older not really caring just let it go in 1 ear out the other, However my brother was not so grown up and decided to throw in a comment of his own towards them. I'm standing there thinking okay were about to fight but nope the guys start yelling profanities and walk away. I'm thinking okay its done with boy was I wrong about 35 min later after we rode Goliath we see the same 2 guys coming back towards us this time with maybe 6 other guys. I'm thinking okay I know whats coming next so I asked my girlfriend to go to the near by gift shop and buy me a key chain with my name on it. She knew why I was trying to get rid of her.

So trying to diffuse the situation I tried to get in line for another ride turn my back to the group (big mistake) next thing I know I'm getting punched in the back of the head falling straight to the ground. I'm not gonna sit here and lie to you guys by saying I got some punches in because I didn't we literally got our ***'s kicked for what felt like ever. I'm thinking security will jump in and save us nope nothing. It took 4 nearby bystanders to come to our aid while the group that jumped us ran off.

I sat on a bench for about 30 min with a bloody mouth. In the distance I see my girlfriend coming back with some workers. Nothing ever happened to that group they were never found. That night my girl tells me that when I sent her away she ran to a gift shop to get help (instead of what I asked her to do typical) and the only thing the cashier did at the gift shop was tell my girlfriend how to get security. so after explaining to police what happened and giving the cop descriptions of the group I have decided not to visit Six Flags even more now that I'm a father and want to keep my kids out of harms way. I hear so many bad things about that place now. I even heard there's been shootings in the parking lot.




I sit sometimes and think what can have been done different that day to avoid the mess.

Hi Christa! There's a few of us here, but it's definitely not a name you see a lot! Do you get tired of spelling your name, too?! LOL

Just noticed this about an experience at SW. We are Gold pass holders and are there often and attribute my husband being alive to the wonderful employees at SW. He had a heart attack in the park. I talked to one employee that was sweeping who immediately had a wheel chair and several people on the scene working on him. I think it is still Reedy Creek Paramedics were in the first aide office waiting for us. Got him hooked up and into an ambulance in seconds. CMs gave me a map to get to hospital and drove me to my car in the parking lot in one of their golf carts. For a really bad experience for us they handled it well. Several even showed up at the hospital all weekend to check on how we were doing. BTW the hospital even put us up for free in a room specifically donated for out of towners who had someone hospitalized while on vacation. I still add SW employees and the hospital's staff to my prayers every night for making a horrible time in our lives a little less horrible.

I was just at Maurices this morning and they asked my name for a dressing room so I said Christa. I walked back to the room and on the door was Krista.
The thing the really gets to me though is people not pronoucing it correctly.
At my highschool graduation they anounced Christina Landrum. I was so mad. I was like it's CHRIS with a TA.

But any ways such is life with an odd name.

Back to our original topic those crazy sneaky ninja security guards.
