Following weekend disturbance, Skateland Putty Hill updates youth policy

NOTTINGHAM, MD—Skateland in Fullerton has updated its policies following a disturbance at the popular family destination.

On Saturday night, scores of teens flooded Belair Road near Ridge Road and several police units attempted to disperse the unruly crowd.

The “flash mob”-type event was reportedly organized via social media and drew large numbers.

Skateland unveiled a new policy this week that reads as follows:

“All patrons under the age of 21 require a parent or guardian over 21 to purchase tickets for all sessions after 5 pm at the cashier window. Parents/ guardians are strongly encouraged to stay as spectators and monitor YOUR children’s behavior.

*No fighting, disrespectful language or disruptive behavior will be tolerated.

Skateland will not tolerate ANY lawless or disruptive behavior on Skateland property or surrounding premises.

*All patrons under the age of 21 must always have skates on their feet to stay in the building.

*No ski mask, or full facial coverings

*NO WARNINGS, NO EXCEPTIONS for anything listed above. If you don’t comply with the

previously stated rules your party will leave without a refund.”

The new policy goes on to state:

“Any assault on staff, police or patrons of the facility will result in your arrest and banned from property Any destruction of property will result in your arrest and banned from property

Skateland has been a fun friend/family-oriented establishment for over 40 years. We plan to keep it this way. If you don’t like the rules. Don’t come. If you don’t want to wear skates, don’t come. If your intentions aren’t to skate, don’t come. The rules haven’t changed. We will not tolerate any disruptive behavior from both teens and adults. If you are concerned about the enforcement of these rules while your children patronize our facility you are strongly encouraged to stay and monitor their behavior.”
