I guess it is good that the park is finally selling out…but throwing kids over the fence can’t be good.
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.
