    Re: Another Incident at Typhoon Lagoon

    I've been in pools and wave pools hundreds of times throughout my life. And, plenty of times, in both, I have bumped into people (children and adults alike) and people have bumped into me. What's described above is a deliberate stalking and pouncing by an intentional predator. He slowly stalked, and when mom left her side, he pounced.
    And, to answer another poster from above...you're right, I/we don't understand, because our minds don't work that way. But we, unfortunately, must continue to educate our children that there are people out there whose minds do.

    My two cents.

    1. Stay with your kids and have your kids stay with you. No one is finger-printed before entering a public pool...anywhere.

    2. If your young daughters are really set on going into the wave pool, (and I love them too) consider wearing a 1-piece bathing suit that day. I know...tan lines...but it's probably only for one day and is a tan line more important than keeping your suit in place? I nearly lost my tankini in a Disney wave pool last year and I didn't even have anyone attempting to "help".

    I really agree V, very good advice. I had the same issue with a suit at Kowabunga slide. They had grandstands at the bottom too!

    My DD goes in a speedo. Not exactly a girl girs suit. I did send her as a teen with just her older brother to Blizzard but never to Typhoon. We have never done the main pool at Blizzard, just isn't as fun as Typhoon's and not as risky with creeps. The slides are just safer and that is what she and her brother went for.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    If the allegations are true, the most disturbing part was that he was with his family.

    Unfortunatly, there are sick, strange people in the world who enjoy this sort of thing.

    Please stay with your kids and teach them to be mindful of who is around them at all times.
