Six Flags Oklahoma tightening up the dress code, eh?

Look, if you’ve been to Six Flags, a carnival or pretty much any amusement park, you know that you’re probably going to see all kinds of characters wandering around the park. They’re just kind of weird places…

Save for being buck naked, a dress codes seem to be non-existent. I’m just saying, from my experience, there’s usually quite a bit of skin showing at the park.

But for one mom in Oklahoma City’s Six Flags Frontier City, apparently her short shorts are where they draw the line. In a lengthy Facebook post, Colorado resident Bailey Breedlove detailed her experience at the park, saying that she was “body shamed” and nearly arrested.

According to Bailey, it all started when her daughter rolled down a hill on her Heelys shoes:

“My daughter was yelled at by a park police officer for rolling down a hill on her heelies right next to me, I was holding her hand.

Then she proceeded to follow me and grabbed my shoulder to turn me around and proceeded to tell me my shorts were “too short.

I was told I needed to go buy new shorts which I am not obligated to purchase anything I don’t want to. Then I was threatened with criminal trespassing when I agreed to buy new shorts so my family could enjoy their vacation.”

When she attempted to leave the park, she said the police officers demanded to see her ID,

“I was then pushed and escorted toward the entrance. Accepting this, we were about to leave and were blocked by your female officer from leaving and she pulled out her cuffs and demanded my ID.

When we asked for probable cause their answer was “because they are the police.”

At this point, her 11 year old daughter began to cry, and mom, who says she is autistic, was thinking she was about to go to jail:

“Your officers had my 11 year old daughter crying hysterically thinking her mother was about to be arrested. Your policies are vague and confusing and the way you body shame and discriminate is unlawful.”

She later added that Oklahoma City Police Department confirmed that the park security personnel were not OKC police officers.

“Update: we have spoken with the Oklahoma police department captain and he assured us this was NOT an Oklahoma city police officer.”

Here’s the exchange with the park security:

However, Six Flags OKC claims that this incident had nothing to do with what she was wearing and was due to her violation of park rules.

The theme park released the following statement via Twitter:

Obviously, we don’t know what really happened, but in the video we can see the security asking the mom to identify herself and she can leave. She seems to refuse to identify herself, but appears to comply when they pull out the cuffs.

She also added that she was banned from the park for the next five years, so that could be why they wanted her to identity herself.

Who really knows?

Either way, the story has over 2.5 million views on TikTok.

Here’s the full story from the mom:

This was my experience at six flags. Trying to at least get my money back and let everyone know about their “policies”:

Hello. I was at your park and 4/30/21. My experience there was traumatizing. I purchased tickets and parking online which was a lot of money. My family an I were welcomed into your park just fine at 5 pm. We were having fun, enjoying rides and spending money on what we thought was going to be a great vacation spot in Oklahoma city.

About 7 pm my daughter was yelled at by a park police officer for rolling down a hill on her heelies right next to me, I was holding her hand. Then she proceeded to follow me and grabbed my shoulder to turn me around and proceeded to tell me my shorts were “too short.”

I committed no crime and proceeded to walk to my boyfriend as I am autistic and have a hard time talking to officers. She followed me yelling and calling for backup. Then your incompetent manager showed up and began body shaming me.

I was told I needed to go buy new shorts which I am not obligated to purchase anything I don’t want to. Then I was threatened with criminal trespassing when I agreed to buy new shorts so my family could enjoy their vacation.

I was then pushed and escorted toward the entrance. Accepting this, we were about to leave and were blocked by your female officer from leaving and she pulled out her cuffs and demanded my ID. When we asked for probable cause their answer was “because they are the police”. At this point we started recording so we do have video of the unlawful tactics.

They wouldn’t provide us with badge numbers and I was terrified I was about to go to jail over a pair of shorts. Your officers had my 11 year old daughter crying hysterically thinking her mother was about to be arrested. Your policies are vague and confusing and the way you body shame and discriminate is unlawful.

I paid a lot of money at your park for our family vacation and I believe I deserve a refund for the trauma caused to my family over a pair of shorts on a hot day. I will not be letting this go as this is 2021 and not middle school.

The Oklahoma police department has been contacted as well as an attorney. I have a 5 year ban now but will not be returning to any of your parks if this is how you treat woman and law abiding citizens and visitors. You should be ashamed with yourselves.

Update: we have spoken with the Oklahoma police department captain and he assured us this was NOT an Oklahoma city police officer.
