    Default Just Another Relaxing Day at the Theme Park

    Angry Parents Toss Kids Over Sold-Out Disney Park Fences
    Hong Kong Disneyland Sells Out For 8 Straight Days

    Angry families stormed fences at Hong Kong Disneyland and tossed their children over gates Thursday after the theme park sold out for an eighth consecutive day, according to a Local 6 News report.

    The uproar outside Disney's theme park followed similar chaos on Wednesday when hundreds of disgruntled visitors, many having made the trip from mainland China, were furious that their Lunar New Year vacation to Hong Kong was ruined.

    The visitors held flexible tickets that were valid for six months but did not guarantee entry on any day, said Betty Law, a spokeswoman for Hong Kong Disneyland.

    The park was sold out on Thursday, Law said, as tourist traffic surged during the annual peak travel season in Hong Kong and mainland China.

    Local 6 News showed angry crowds grabbing onto fences at the park's entrance as security officers and police tried to maintain order.

    The chaos at the park prompted criticism from Hong Kong's government. Officials released a statement saying the park's ticketing arrangement could be improved, according to a report.

    Depending on the capacity of the park it may take a while for all of those people just to get in one time a piece.

    The blurb in the email:

    I used to love Roller Coasters, but this is not the roller coaster of my day! They can have this one... and Ohio too.

    With a record-breaking height of 420-feet and record-breaking speed of 120 mph, Top Thrill Dragster delivers on its promise of thrilling riders this summer at Cedar Point

    I got that email as well. Just didn't have the patience to post all the pics one after another.

    It took me awhile to figure out what the white stuff was in the background. Found out it was frozen water or snow. Pretty rare in these parts.
