Watch a Man Get Pepper-Sprayed at Disneyland, and Other Theme Park Fiascos
Disneyland, Walt Disney World Resort's half-sibling on the West Coast, was dangerously unprepared for what hit them over the weekend.
A seemingly inebriated 53-year-old patron with a mean right hook went ape shit at the Anaheim park -- just outside the Tower of Terror, appropriately enough. A four-minute video (below) surfaced over the weekend that captures the angry guest dropping several f-bombs and a few punches.
In an effort to subdue the man, Disney employees were forced to use pepper spray. It's unclear why the guest turned to violence, but we can only speculate it had something to do with his Fastpass.
Theme parks are supposed to be fun, but sometimes people lose their shit -- and if you've ever waited in a two-hour line for a two-minute roller-coaster ride, you can relate. But the following videos show just how bad it can get when you fly off the handle in the middle of the Happiest Place on Earth. So before your next road trip to Orlando, watch these theme park fisticuffs to calm that aggression. And if necessary, pack sedatives.

The "Happiest Place on Earth" felt mighty dangerous over the weekend when a 53-year-old guest had to be pepper-sprayed following a Tower of Terror ruckus. Where's the Mickey P.D., Disney? Because the giggling, wise-cracking dudes filming this fight are useless.
The fifth-most popular amusement park company has had several black eyes throughout its history -- bankruptcy, animal attacks, OSHA violations, etc. But none were as despicable as the time a man beat a woman in front of her children. This is actually really disturbing; maybe instead of watching this video, you should go donate to DVSAC.
In June 2011, a huge fight broke out at Bessemer, Alabama's VisionLand (now Alabama Adventure). Beach chairs were tossed around and rough punches landed. Next time we're in Bessemer, we'll opt for a trip to the Watercress Darter National Wildlife Refuge instead.
What happens when a bunch of tweens skip school and head over to the local amusement park? Cat fights and viral videos.
