Frontier City's Freight Fest turned into fight night on Saturday, September 25.

The Oklahoma City theme park opened its Halloween attractions over the weekend, but the park was forced to close early because of guests fighting, News 9 reported.

"It was a bit startling. You don't expect that when you go to an amusement park to have fun with your family," Janna Cannon, who witnessed the fights, told the station.

It's unclear what caused the fights to start, but witnesses said that saw people running through the park and that the fights broke out in multiple locations. There were even reports of a shooting and stabbing, but Oklahoma City Police say that neither happened.

Police was called to break up the fights, and the park shut down early in an effort to keep people safe.

"The safety of our guests and team members is always our top priority. We work in partnership with the Oklahoma City Police Department to maintain the highest standards of safety and security," Frontier City said in a statement.

Only one woman was arrested at theme park. Eunique Thomas was charged with assault and battery on a city official for allegedly hitting a cop in the face with her elbow as he tried to break up a fight.
