Is There More to This Story?

Someone please tell me there's more to this story. If not, how sad for this family. It came from the news up here in Raleigh.

Definitely more to that story..Universal ( any themepark for that matter) is not in the habit of kicking people out of a park unless there is good reason

I am obviously not sure as I was not there, but I would think maybe the father was getting belligerent while 'questioning' this policy? I don't really see them being told one minute a new shirt was fine and then a bunch more security showing up and telling them to leave.

This. No theme park is going to prevent someone from spending their money AND refund the money for the tickets already purchased for no reason.

that dude that caused the family to be removed from the park, is still at it.

two days back it was on the yahoo news.


UO's rep statement was that the man should contact them if he wants to discuss it.


makes me feel he is just a news hound and wants to stir the pot.

He's had his 15 minutes of fame and wants more.

There is no themepark anywhere that would ruin the chance to take money from people without good cause. I don't believe any of it.
