Boy-Crazy Rabbi Banned From Six Flags Water Parks

You can safely bet a few shekels that log flumes and slip-n-slides aren’t the only “water sports” the good Rabbi enjoys…

Rabbi Jay Marc Harris banned from Six FlagsHarris was escorted out of the San Antonio theme park by security after three mothers complained of his asking to “borrow’ their boys for a two-person ride. After learning of complaints of strange behavior in other parks, Six Flags instituted a lifetime ban that barred Harris from all 16 of the company’s sixteen properties…

…the New Haven, Connecticut, resident, who went by the nickname “Flume Dog” because of his love of log flumes and water slides, would purchase a season pass to Six Flags and travel the country every year to ride those particular attractions at the company’s parks. In addition to having a passion for water attractions, Harris is also a Hasidic Jew, and religious rules forbid him from riding with a female. These rules, Harris claims, is why he specifically asked for boys to join him on the two person rides…

Six Flags also reported that Harris was found chained to a tree at the Six Flags property in Atlanta, Georgia. He had presumably slept on the property overnight. He would also request that a Six Flag employee would escort him around the park to take pictures of him enjoying the attractions…  [San Antonio Current]
