    "Fighting began when they were told they would be denied access to certain rides if they wore religious garb, Tartaglia said."



    They should have been Billy Clubbed.

    In practicing your religion, you have to make certain sacrifices. Nobody ever said it was easy.

    You cannot make a park make safety concessions because you still want to have fun

    It also becomes a liablity issue, as the park is then making an exception to a rule, which any lawyer will tell you, is basically an open invite for a lawsuit if something bad happens.

    The park and its rides remained open Tuesday, but new visitors were not being allowed into the park. Tartaglia said no one inside was asked to leave the park.

    Sounds fair minded and safety conscious to me. The organizers failed in meeting their responsibility and keeping the peace.

    Agreed. The concerns are validated.

    I agree with the safety issue and have no problems with it.

    Do they also inforce this on wigs?


    They would be just as much as safety risk.
