Ferris Wheel Fiasco: Punches Fly As Emotions Boil Over At Florida Flea Market

Videos by OutKick

Opa-locka, Florida police say they have identified a woman of interest in a Ferris wheel brawl that broke out at a flea market over the weekend. As you can see from footage out of the Opa Locka Hialeah Flea Market, a Ferris wheel worker traded blows with customers in yet another example of the world losing its damn mind.

“According to Opa-locka police, when officers entered the flea market to investigate, dozens of people ran to the exit. Officers were not able to locate the alleged victim, who was seen on video that circulated on social media,” Local10.com reported Sunday.

Look at the kids in that video living in this chaos on a normal basis, standing pretty much zero chance of escaping this life where carnies are fighting mom and other customers are stomping out the carnie. There’s no ‘I need to speak to a manager.’ It’s just straight-up wild times for these kids who just want calm in their lives. They just want a calm night of fun and adventure. Instead, we have carnie snapping on mom and mom calling in the cavalry.

And if the fight wasn’t crazy enough, the flea market’s Instagram account says two people got married last week on the market’s Ferris wheel. This is some Pure Florida stuff.

Conclusion: Take the kids to Cedar Point or some sort of other professional carnival atmosphere where the carnies don’t roll in on a Wednesday and haul ass out of town to avoid the cops by Saturday night. You’ve been warned.
