Brawl breaks out at birthday party; Norridge residents want business closed

Big John and Ramblin’ Ray cover a large brawl that broke out at Go Bananas, an indoor family theme park in Norridge, on Saturday.

Norridge police say it was after 6:30 p.m. on Saturday when two groups of people started arguing.

“Some people weren’t comfortable with some other people in the establishment,” Police chief David Disselhorst said. “Words were exchanged.”

Cell phone video of the incident showed several customers kicking and punching one another.  A woman was slammed on the floor and someone threw trash can on top of her.  Another woman grabbed a mop and swung it like a baseball bat at the crowd.


One man was found bleeding from his head after he was trying to break up the fight. He didn’t press charges.

Norridge residents started an online petition demanding that the business be closed. So far it’s been signed by more than 3,000 people.
