UPDATE: Witness Reports No Immediate Security Response for Guests Who Jumped From Living With the Land Boat
After we broke the story that a guest jumped from a boat on Living with the Land in Epcot to try to steal a cucumber from the greenhouse, we received additional details around the episode from a reader who was riding right behind these guests.
According to Meghan Gorny, “We were in the boat and witnessed everything. The guy that got out to ‘help’ her had jumped out of the boat several times during the ride, starting by the farm scene. The entire group was also leaning out of the boat and grabbing sand and throwing it, including holding the small child with them out of the boat so that she could grab sand.”
By the time the guest tried to grab the cucumber, there had already been repeated disruptive behavior by the guest’s party.
Most disappointing, there was barely any response to the situation, and the guests were not approached by security when they exited the ride. According to Gorny, “The CMs did make an announcement to keep arms and legs inside the boat once. We were very surprised that there was absolutely no security or anyone there to escort them out of the park when we got off the ride.”
Gorny also sent an additional video snippet showing the cucumber incident from where she sat on the ride.
