Fifteen people were arrested and the entrance to Playland was closed Tuesday afternoon after a dispute at the park involving religious dress.
Police from multiple departments from throughout Westchester County were called in for assistance.
The dispute broke out at about 2:30 p.m. near the park's entrance between members of the Muslim American Society of New York, according to Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of Westchester County Parks. Fighting began when they were told they would be denied access to certain rides if they wore religious garb, Tartaglia said.
Two seasonal officers were injured while joining Westchester County Police who were trying to break up the scuffle, he said.

About a year or so ago I was reading a article about a Muslim woman who died at a go cart ride when her head wear got caught up in the wheels.
Who started fighting; who was arrested?
I posted a few weeks ago about how awful and aggressive these pigs were starting to act right here in the City. It's insufferable and they're doing what they do best: causing trouble and making life miserable.
OMG you owe me a keyboard too funny
Did her father then murder all his other daughters to restore the family honor?
One more thing....how many Playland’s in Mecca? How many amusement parks in he Middle East?
At least it seems that way...
At least it seems that way...
So, have them sign an agreement not to sue if their garb causes them harm on the rides. Mayhap several more of them will lose their lives by being stupid and a lesson learned.
Not trying to be harsh, just getting tired of people trying to be stupid on purpose.
And I bet her family sued the company for everything they had. Lesson learned? Nooooo, some people still have to have everything they want.
You think that piece of paper will stop a very expensive law suit???
it won’t. It might as well be toilet paper.
Maybe invent the Muslim Garb Terror Machine.
It reminds me of that story last year about some British amusement park sponsoring a Muslim Fun Day.
I still chuckle over that.
If you were a ride operator or the company that owned the park, do you believe that these people would not sue? No hold-harmless agreement is worth anything if they get hurt.
Nope, if the park felt it was dangerous, there was little else they could do.
Gee.....my pet pig and I have been on EVERY ride at that place....we’ve been on EVERY seat of EVERY ride in that park. He LOVES rides!!!
As a matter of fact, I used to take my pet pig’s brother there in the past. He recently passed away and I buried him at the park. He was a good pig.
Ah, Playland. The Dragon Coaster. Lots of memories there.
Apparently we don’t mind the occasional (LOL!) mob violence against whites, HOWEVER, to do violence against any muslim is a gross injustice.
We are so afraid to either offend or object to anything muslim, we are totaly paralyzed as a nation. Muslims win.
Christians, gird yourselves and pray for the soon return of Jesus.
Nice to know.
Not the first time this kind of thing has happened.
Yep that was the article!
I live here. play land is the place featured in the hanks movie BIG.
true! I grew up here. Things are drastically different than when I was a kid. Am 36 now. Like a different planet now.
they feel emboldened because they have one of their “own” in the White House. We are being conquered by them without a fight.
“About a year or so ago I was reading a article about a Muslim woman who died at a go cart ride when her head wear got caught up in the wheels.”
So... why exactly are we telling them they can’t wear their headgear?
If you don’t like it, then feel free to get the F out of this country Muslim. There is myself and tens of millions of my fellow AMERICANS that will be more than happy to help you move out of our country. No offense...
You’re sick if you think that’s funny... http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/article7092768.ece
Or, the Koran - oh, wait . . . !
The lesson here? Put lots of black berry brush on what ever side of your property you think zombies in head scarves and burkas are going to attack from.
Let them wear their headscarves!
Right after they sign a waiver for liability so their men can't sue the park after their chattel women get their stupid heads twisted off when the scarves get caught up by the machinery.
So they weren’t denied access to the park, merely told that they couldn’t ride on some of the attractions wearing hats? And the big outrage in that is...?
Jesus is returning soon, whether we pray for it or not. And what a GLORIOUS day that will be.
Expect this from every koranimal when in groups.
They assault the security guards & the cops while claiming to be the victims.
Typical POS koranimals.
