(8) i was thinking as we went to the airport that why in the world would it say open 24 hours. so i cancelled my flight and went back there to the park i was still confused about the 24 hour thing and the closed thing. threw & threw i was still very curius because i had never been so confused over something like this. it was kinda scary as i hopped right over the gate. i looked around and saw no odd actions going i said to my self alright lets do this with out geting caught or arrested or worse my heart was beating like an english drum i walked down the enterance ramp and saw someone so i ran for it i tripped and scrammbled to the nearist bush and tried to stay down it was hard to keep from moving in the bushes.the flashlight shined right in my eyes as i tryed to duck down (brian yertzell, Age 8 to 12, 5/8/2003 10:56:23 AM, Always_read_the_small_print)

(9) My mom always told me to be home before 7:00 pm. It was now 7:15 and I knew I should go home. But as I looked into the park, I saw a jungle of trees and imaginary stuff. I thought I could just take five minutes and take a peek in this park. (marci mcleran, Adult, 5/10/2003 10:06:35 AM, Always_read_the_small_print)

(10) How i wished i had read it then it would never had happened.As i turned into the gates a cold fusion feeling came over me as i stepped in a woman leapt out of the bushes and strangled me i kicked her hard and ran. I turned back just outside the gates to read the small print "Enter at your own risk" (Holley , Age 8 to 12, 11/12/2003 11:50:28 AM, Always_read_the_small_print)

(11) "wow real helpful now" i muttered as i read the sign, rubbign my neck where i could still feel the hands that had been gripping my throat tightly only moments ago. (Rhiann, Age 13 to 18, 11/28/2003 8:43:44 AM, Always_read_the_small_print)
