So this is a funny little story, but also a warning. It ended well (except for our fence) but I would prefer things like this didn’t happen.
The other day, a little girl got her knee stuck in a fence in our queue. I guess she was climbing, and slipped, and her knee just fell in there. Apparently her dad tried to use some sunscreen to lube it out, but it just go stuck a bit further. We had to call 9-1-1 and stop letting people into our line so they could figure out the best way to get her unstuck.
After a bit of trying to get her knee unstuck, they eventually had to use the jaws of life to wedge the giant matches that made up the fence apart. The girl got free relatively unharmed (most likely just a sore knee), and the family got to go meet Mickey. Of course, then we’ve got to deal with our broken fence, to make sure no one gets any splinters from the broken wood.
Obviously we’d prefer this didn’t happen for everyone’s safety. That’s why we don’t like letting people climb on our fences, in any queues. There are places you could get stuck, or fall from, and get hurt.
And getting hurt isn’t magical at all.
