Theme Park Security


Theme park security is utterly perfunctory. Disney do a fingerprint check, where they let you through if it doesn't scan your fingerprints properly (which you can make happen by keeping your fingers slightly too far apart). Both Disney and Universal have bag checks that couldn't find a hand grenade (or, perhaps worse from Disney's point of view, smuggled-in food). Most of the time, the searchers peered inside the main cavity of my rucksack, but not the front or middle cavity, and not inside the four kagoul bags inside the main cavity. In the worst case, they let me through having merely pointed at my bag with the blunt end of a pencil.

Well, the rides aren't dangerous so I suppose they have to generate some excitement from somewhere...
