Description

There were some terrifying moments for Six Flags attendees as the first night of "Fright Fest" turned into a "Fight Fest." One family whose kids were caught up in the action contacted FOX 5 and shared video of the scary scene that left one 15-year-old with scratch marks on her face. If you pay close attention to the video, you can see and hear the angry crowd and the tension level rising as the fight appears to escalate. One teen who was there says there was some security present, but not enough to handle the crowds. Six Flags tweeted about the incident: "Reports of mass fighting or serious injuries are completely inaccurate. The safety of our guests if of top priority." Many people responded to that tweet saying it was inaccurate. Six Flags released the following statement Sunday night: "This park has a zero tolerance for inappropriate behavior. "We will not allow any individuals or groups to disrupt the typical atmosphere of fun and enjoyment found here." The park says they have added both additional security and traffic management strategies following the incident, in an effort to aid in the flow of guests both within the park and on Central Avenue.
