Thanks Sam.

I wasn't whacked that night, we had just eaten at Mythos.

I'm not going to tell exactly how the bust went down, but I wasn't drunk
when it happened. It was a simple mistake.

What happened was regrettable. Hind site is 20/20.

We basically got caught in a fish net.

On the night we visited, 127 people got a trespass warning. I was the
only one who got indefinite. The reason why is because I didn't want
to talk. Ever seen those videos on YouTube that say, "Don't Talk To
Cops?" Just search YouTube for that term and you'll find it. There's
two videos that run for 30 minutes that explain it, worth watching.

DON'T TALK TO COPS.

The investigator got mad when I said I didn't want to talk and had an
attitude. Basically, the investigators work for Universal, but they
also have Orlando Police back there. He could have been pissed off
from the person before me, who knows. I called him on Wednesday and
cleared the air. He didn't remember who I was until we talked for a
while. He said, "I see so many faces." Get it? It's like an
assembly line. A team brings the people behind the wall, and they're
either arrested or issued a trespass warning.

But get this, not only did they bust 127 people that night, but 67
during the day. And just like me, many drove from far away to attend
(destination travelers).

Do the math, this is about 175 people a day during HHN, and 67 or so any
other day of the week. This is not some random check, but a full blown
sting operation and they've been doing it for over 6 weeks now. That's
when the lady near the bottom of the story was busted, 6 weeks ago, she
flipped out and was arrested.

For those going, the processing area at USF is to the right between the
bathrooms and T2 near the front of the park. They've got card tables
and the whole area is lit up. They have a team of people hanging out
near Shrek and Jimmy Neutron. They look for underage drinkers, walk
up, and ask for ID. From there they escort the people behind a wall
next to T2 and the bathrooms. After that the warnings are written up,
take away any tickets/passes, and a ride to the escalator leading to the
parking garage.

They're also hanging out near Margaritaville during the day since they
sell those slushie drinks. Person buys a slushie drink, hands it to
their kid to take a sip, busted.

If it's happening in Orlando I imagine it's happening at all the parks.

The economy is tuff, and think about this, they're basically banning 175
people a day for 1 year. Do the math. You won't need an express pass
for HHN next year. There won't be any people left to attend at this
rate.

This reminds me of Ft. Lauderdale. Used to be the Spring Break capital
of the world. Then they busted everyone and scared them off. Now you
read articles that Ft. Lauderdale is broke, doesn't have an air show any
more, and only survives from rich people with boats. Universal
doesn't have anything else to fall back on. When people stop coming,
that's it, they lose out. The executives at the top won't care, they
still get 5 vacation homes and million dollar bonuses, but it's
definitely going to hurt everyone down the line.

I've worked at that theme park as well as another big Orlando one and let me tell you if you knew just how little security there actually was there you would be shocked.

Well, not at Universal. They've obviously got a sting operation set up, because security would bring the people behind the wall, then go get more. It's like a giant fish net. There were a whole row of tables with people waiting to process (ban for a year), everyone.

It really doesn't take much either. They wait in front of Margaritaville where people are buying slushie drinks. Parent hands the drink to their kid, they move in and take them behind the wall. At HHN it's even easier. It would be like cops setting up a radar trap on the highway leading away from a drag strip. Entrapment. City collects a ton of money but pisses everyone off.

They should just not serve alcohol

It's an amusement park, if you need to be drunk to be amused someone is doing something wrong

It seems fishy that they would go so far out of their way to ban customers who, if nothing else, had more money to spend at the park

Do you think they'll institute a blanket denim ban just to be sure that NGFM doesn't slip through the tight security nets?
