AMHERST, NY - For a second straight week Amherst Police were called to Frightworld on Sheridan Drive, to break up fights involving large groups of teenagers in the parking lot.

Saturday night 40 people were involved in one brawl alone.

Captain Stephen McGonagles says say one person was taken to the hospital.

"A girl had gone to Sister's Hospital to report a head injury," McGonagles said. "She reported she was struck in the head with what she believes to be a handgun."

Police say they never found a gun, but recovered a knife at the scene.

As families arrived Sunday night for some ghoulish fun, Frightworld General Manager, Stephen Szortyka, had to turn them away.

He says the popular Halloween attraction will stay closed until Tuesday night.

"It was a decision that had to be made unfortunately," Szortyka said.

For the next two days, Szortyka will meet with Amherst Police to focus on public safety policies.

"Safety is our number one priority" Szortyka says. "I train my management team. Their number one focus is to make sure that all of the ticket takers, and make sure all of our front customer facing actors as well as our employees are safe and secure."

Amherst Police say Frightworld is cooperating with their recommendations, and helping to keep their customers safe.

"From last week to this week they tripled security which has consisted of off duty police officers." Captain McGonagles goes on to say, "They've made modifications to the lighting inside Frightworld."

This extra safety measure is aimed at giving police officers a better view of the crowds, and helping keep things under control when Frightworld re-opens its doors again.

Szortyka hoping things get back to "normal," and customers will return to a popluar attraction that's been open the past 9 years.

"We hope that you know they come back next weekend you know. Starting on Thursday October 14th, we're going to be open every single night."

Amherst Police say they will increase their patrols in and around the area of Frightworld starting Tuesday night.

The girl that was taken to the hospital has since been released, after receiving a few stitches to her head.

It makes a BIG difference. If not for roving packs of animals there would be no bloodshed at all.
This is no surprise. It is TBNB - Typical Buffalo Negro Behavior. From the shootings at the $1.50 movies, to the brawls at the Galleria, to the Chippewa sitiation, to City Grille, to the nightly shootings and murders - this is no surprise whatsoever.
I don't know how the blacks in other cities act, but the Buffalo negroes are animals.

The guy who runs this place is probably making big bucks by charging admission to retards who want to watch minimum wage retards jump out from behind trees with disabled chain saws to scare them

One group of retards decides to fight another bunch of retards and the retards who are not there looking for trouble get scared

This clown wants to meet with the Amherst Police and make it THEIR (and the taxpayers' problem)

When the Town of Amherst gave this idiot a permit to run his little shit show, there should have been a clause that he hired two off-duty Amherst cops to work security.

Now, he wants the on-duty Amherst Police to stop what they are doing to babysit his little shit show

They already have off duty cops, nimrod. What they need is off duty Buffalo cops. Suburban cops aren't real cops and have been known to run from situations where their hair might get a little messed up.

Have a nice night.

They are merely warming up for the annual Christmas Day Riot, which normally occurs at the Walden Galleria Cinema, or the N Buffalo Regal Cinema.

If you did your research, Frightworld uses Amherst Police Department as there security. Amherst Police are on site during all operating hours.

And the permit of this "Shit show" goes through the town, not the Police.

Clearly your uneducated.
