any are unaware that the Class of 2012’s Grad Night has been changed. The seniors will no longer be spending their night on roller coasters and eating cotton candy at Six Flags Magic Mountain. At the last parent meeting, it was decided that instead, students will spend their night enjoying the sight of playful chimpanzees and gazing at the stars on safari tours at the San Diego Zoo.
“Six Flags can be dangerous and costly,” said senior parent, Ms. Polgarbear. “The zoo is much safer and it is educational.”
Due to the lack of funds, some senior parents thought it would be more cost effective. While Six Flags Magic Mountain would cost the class over ten thousand dollars, the San Diego Zoo would only cost one thousand. However, students have to pay for their own meals and the park will not allow them exclusive access to their features, nor special operating hours.
“I really looked forward to spending my entire night and early morning goofing off with my fellow seniors at Magic Mountain,” said senior Jacoby Walrus. “It irritates me that this has been changed without students’ consent, but whatever.”
As students discover the news of the Grad Night change, many of them expressed anger and frustrations. Nonetheless, the deposit for Magic Mountain has already been removed and a deposit has been made for the zoo.
“We had to find a quick, easy solution; we did not raise as much money as we thought. We had to change something, but hopefully the kids still have fun and enjoy themselves,” said senior parent Mr. Kangarloo.
