A video has surfaced from a popular theme park of a visitor pointing a gun at Guests.

Inside the Magic recently reported that the Southern California theme park Knott’s Berry Farm was shut down early last weekend after multiple fights and reported gunfire. However, the police department recently shared that no gunfire had happened, but multiple brawls did, in fact, occur.

Following these reports, Knott’s Berry Farm released a statement on the incident, which stated:

The safety of Knott’s Berry Farm Guests and Associates is always our top priority. On Saturday evening, the decision was made to close the Park 3 hours early due to unruly behavior and altercations involving a number of teenagers. This behavior did not align with our Park’s values, and was not the experience we want any Guest to have while visiting Knott’s Berry Farm.

Now, another video has surfaced from Knott’s Berry Farm that shows a young Guest holding a toy gun and pointing it at other Guests. Just a little later, fights would close down the theme park and visitors would be seen running away from the incidents.

User @knottsgonewild shared the video on TikTok.

Because of behavior like this, including fights that have occurred, Knott’s Berry Farm has issued a chaperone policy that will require all Guests ages 17 and under to be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years of age.

“For decades, Knott’s Berry Farm has been a place where families and friends come together to enjoy a one-of-a-kind park full of homegrown experiences and immersive entertainment,” the theme park said in a statement. “Millions of guests have counted on us for wholesome family fun, and we’re committed to keeping that promise going forward.

As part of that commitment, the park will implement a chaperone policy beginning Friday, July 22, 2022, remaining in effect on Fridays and Saturdays until further notice.”
