this isn't the magic kingdom you're looking for. move along.

from boing boing

when i first read the headline i thought they were adding a security checkpoint to control access to the ride. that's pretty ridiculous all by itself and had me imagining what kind of crotch molesting pat-downs would be happening at a place that (lets face it) caters to kids. but as i read further it became clear - the security checkpoint isn't to control access to the ride and keep bad people out, it's actually part of the ride.

it seems someone thinks security checkpoints could be an enjoyable experience worthy of adding to a theme park. that just makes me wonder about what kind of happy endings they've been getting at their regular security checkpoints. and isn't disney the wrong sort of theme park for that?
