Police Break Up Massive Brawl at Worlds of Fun

Tod Palmer, KSHB-TV, April 22, 2019

Hundreds of people, mostly teenagers, were involved in a fight that required a massive police response Saturday night at Worlds of Fun.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office issued an assist-the-officer call about a half-hour before the park was scheduled to close, requesting help from any available law-enforcement officers from surrounding departments.


The Clay County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Sunday on Twitter that it needed help to “disperse an unruly group of teenagers starting fights,” but that there were no injuries reported.

After approximately 300 people, mostly teens, were shepherded into the parking lot, the chaos continued. The entire ordeal was frightening for those who witnessed it.
