Jungle Fun & Adventure Evacuated After Fight Breaks Out Involving 15 People

March 8, 2014 17:17 pm · 110 comments


The Jungle Fun & Adventure in the Willow Shopping Center in Concord was evacuated on Saturday afternoon after a fight broke out involving about 15 people, according to Concord Police.

No major injuries were reported, but an employee was apparently hit in the head with a flying object (possibly a chair). He/she declined any medical attention.

The responsible parties had fled the scene by the time the Concord Police arrived on scene, and we’re hearing no arrests were made.

Thanks to the anonymous Claycordian for sending the picture of the evacuated customers (they were not involved in the fight).

Rumble in the Jungle at that place called the Willows Shopping Center. Seems to have alot of problems at that place.

Keeping it classy, Concord.

Just people March 8, 2014 at 5:31 PM

behaving badly. People do that a lot these days.

Great example for the children.

Didn’t this happen last year?

Val March 8, 2014 at 5:35 PM

Kids now days don’t have any place they can go!! Sad. What was it over who’s on the Jungle Jim first?

Silva March 8, 2014 at 5:38 PM


Mrs. T March 8, 2014 at 5:40 PM

So sad that adults can’t act right at a place that is for kids. I feel sorry for the kids that had to witness this ghetto trash fighting. So so sad!!

Bet you one kid hit another and the parents probably got mad.

TinFoiler March 8, 2014 at 5:53 PM

So the perpetrators got away and nobody bothered to get their vehicle description or license plate???
Probably paid with EBT, I would assume that’s traceable?

Mike March 8, 2014 at 5:54 PM

See what happens when EBT is accepted at places like this. It’s like letting section 8 into your neighborhood. With the welfare comes the trash. Well done scumbags, another nice place just became ghetto! Funny how they left before the Police showed up. Or did it take CPD 20-60 minutes to respond?

Mom2Boys March 8, 2014 at 6:02 PM

This is happening so frequently there. I’m astonished that people cannot keep themselves together in a children’s atmosphere. The last incident there guns were shown. How scary for a little child and a Parent to have to witness and experience this. Kids should have a place to run, exercise and play without fearing for their lives and safety. It’s disgusting and sad. I have no idea who these people are, where they’re from, how they were raised but they aren’t any types of individuals that my kids will be near. Thus, we will never, ever be going there as I will not put my Family at risk for such scary, immature, and violent behavior. This place needs to close down. If it doesn’t, the situations there will continue to escalate and we will hear an awful story down the road. Wish it was a peaceful and fun place where my kids could play and make friends…but it’s just a place for hood rat parents.

Elwood March 8, 2014 at 6:10 PM

Concord–where the ghetto goes to have fun.

kristina March 8, 2014 at 6:11 PM

Why am I NOT surprised that the police didn’t make it there in time?! Concord police department is a joke and their response time is a joke as well. I called the police to have them remove a homeless man who was throwing rocks and screaming obscenities at my customers and as I’m on the phone with dispatch the homeless man started screaming at me loud enough to where dispatch was able to hear him and it still took the police almost an hour to get there. I guess next time I’ll just call 911

Momo March 8, 2014 at 6:11 PM

When my kids were little we spent many an afternoon there. Soo much fun then. That was over 20 years ago though. Too bad it’s gotten to be like that.

Steven Burks March 8, 2014 at 6:26 PM

Shocker you have no clue do you? Pittsburg isn’t hood like you think. Also does it matter what color they were they are still ignorant for fighting at this place where kids are suppose to have fun. Question is how did it start? Keep it classy Concord.

mr rogers March 8, 2014 at 6:27 PM

Glad my kids are grown. Every year some people just seem to take civility a little closer to the having no boundary where everything goes. And that is called a society in decline.

mika March 8, 2014 at 6:27 PM

Can’t take your kids to either life entertainment facilities in Concord_-Junlr or Chuck e cheese. Low class, or shall I say, no class. . .

Steve H. March 8, 2014 at 6:47 PM

@Kristina #21; I think calling 911 would be the way to go.

Bob March 8, 2014 at 6:50 PM

I like how people can make streoytype and racist accusations about a story with very little details but anyone who questions why an unarmed man was shot to death by the police gets there post deleted.

Rick March 8, 2014 at 6:59 PM

WTF? Hurling chairs? Come on, people. I don’t care where you’re from. Anybody can carry themselves properly if they really want to.

There’s children present. Parents need to learn how to lead by example. This is not only sad, it’s pathetic.

People need to learn how to act.

Quicksilver Kid March 8, 2014 at 7:02 PM

Good thing there were no Tea Party members there, someone might have got shot.

uh huh March 8, 2014 at 7:07 PM

A fight? At the Jungle??? huh??? My goodness, we are running out of places to take our children to play where they are safe. This is just crazy. @#21, Our Officers are busy, You need to pipe down. You obviously called the non emergancy line “I guess next time I’ll just call 911″so what did you expect? It wasn’t an emergancy DUH!!!

The only thing surprising from this story and comments, is that EBT is accepted at the jungle, really hope someone was being very sarcastic.

William P. March 8, 2014 at 7:53 PM

Once again the people of Concord are shocked by the actions of the people of Concord. Like I said this morning, the only ones who perceive a difference between Concord and Pittsburg/Antioch are people who live in Concord (e.g., Elwood). To the rest of us, you’re all the same.

You know people, you don’t have to bash people who get ebt. Some elderly people can’t afford food and get ebt. Some people who have something go bad in their lives get ebt. Some people who are raising their children on their own get ebt. Some people who are disabled and have kids to raise and aren’t lucky enough to work get ebt. So getting ebt doesn’t make people ghetto or trash! TALKING CRAP ABOUT SOMETHING YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT, NOW THAT MAKES Y O U THE GHETTO TRASH!!!

eric March 8, 2014 at 8:44 PM

@ William P – You sir, are an idiot. There are bad elements and incidents in every town and city in America. It’s interesting that you try to speak “for the rest of us” yet who is with you on this. Seriously, is Concord the city it used to be 20 years ago? Of course it’s not. It’s Pleasant Hill or Walnut Creek? Nope, not anymore either. It’s a sign of the times and things change but one of the biggest changes is that there is more immediate coverage of local stories because of the internet and sites like Claycord.com. Bad behavior exists everywhere and bad things happen everywhere deal with it. I am sure even whatever amazing town or city you claim to be from is also far from the perfect dreamland which you seem to imply. The fact is, most people that defend Concord aren’t ignorant of the problems, we are just willing to see the good, focus on the positive and try to fix the problems rather than just bash our city or other cities to make ourselves feel better about our tiny little lives lives some people that post on this website.

What is wrong with that place? I was just telling a family to beware of that place for the reason of fights and at a place for kids. Ridiculous. People need to grow up.

Funnyclown March 8, 2014 at 9:41 PM

@ nunya

I agree with everything u say, using ebt under certain circumstances is perfectly acceptable and i am more than happy to see tax dollars going that way. But we all know that some rely on ebt, and are able bodied to work. They choose not to work because they qualify for so many things that are offered because they are guess what UNEMPLOYED.

Mrs. T March 8, 2014 at 9:42 PM

You are right #27 these were probably very classy people that were raised right. Not ghetto thug trash like we suspect!!! (Sarcasm intended)

Matt March 8, 2014 at 9:47 PM

Par for the course.

Peanut March 8, 2014 at 9:55 PM

It’s sad that such a fun place for children can be scary for children too. I used to take my children and their friends there. One of the things the Jungle needs to change is the selling of beer and wine. This is suppose to be a childs world of fun, games and safe. Also please stop bashing people who get EBT. It helps them survive in an already tough world.. Im sure the Jungle doesn’t take EBT. They are limited to where is can be used.

Khloe March 8, 2014 at 10:16 PM

@ Kristina #21 I agree w/ you
@ Bob #27 you obviously didn’t look at the photo

Fig Newton March 8, 2014 at 10:46 PM

EBT is welcome everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They ought to make it a rule,,get EBT but work for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EBT and the Jungle,,lots of fun,,so let’s see,,a certain amount of people have to work so they can make sure the EBT Entitlement people get paid for existing!!!!!!!!!!!!! Far out! I wonder why EBT is so popular!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anon-employee. March 8, 2014 at 11:02 PM

Just to let the record show, I work at the Jungle and we don’t accept EBT. Just to clarify things. And nobody was hit by a chair…

As Archie Bunker would say “Now ain’t that loverly?”

Dre March 8, 2014 at 11:15 PM

I worked here about 15 years ago. and as a birthday hostess I hosted a party and found that the parents have brought in several 40’S they had snuck in and were getting drunk at a children’s birthday. When we told management we were told there was nothing they could do. When their drunk asses tried to get in their cars to drive their kids home, no one did anything. We called the cops and they did nothing either. Now the jungle serves alcohol. The place is filthy and you can go get drunk while your kids play… I don’t know how this is even allowed?

Chad March 8, 2014 at 11:23 PM

The willows used to be the only (semi) nice shopping center that concord had, now look at you guys, flinging chairs like a bunch of carnies in a trailer park after wrestlemania. This wouldn’t happen in walnut creek, stay away from here.

Um, Chad March 9, 2014 at 1:00 AM

Chad, I grew up in Walnut Creek and settled in Concord. I still have a lot of family & friends in my home town. My husband’s best friend is a WC cop of 20+ years that he sees every week.

So let’s talk about the testosterone, alcohol and drug-fueled fights that are a regular part of the WC club scene. Things seem to have settled down since the City and cops cracked down hard last year, but really, you can’t say Walnut Creek is trash free. Oh, but the fight-causing thugs are from out of town, you say? Don’t be so sure. Just as we don’t know who’s instigating the Concord fights. Who knows, it could be some Creekside Drive thugs.

Puddintain March 9, 2014 at 7:53 AM

@Lashandra, I’m really sorry about your child and all the other children there. The Jungle was once a safe environment for kids and adults, but I guess you take your chances these days. I hope you get a refund.

I’m white and was raised in Laafayette and Concord. When George W. Bush and his cronies drove our economy off a cliff we lost our livelyhoods and our savings. We are in our fifties, and struggling to get back on our feet. We’ve gotten EBT. It has probably kept us from starving to death but not by much. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, those are the facts.

moneylover wifee March 9, 2014 at 8:01 AM

For the record how would u no they take EBT unless u carry the card n to its not just African americans .. Yes I was there it was grow as ppl fighting for a stupid reason n could of took the drama outside.. As far as the staff goes they did nothing but call police n wen then second fight broke out they evacuated the building n I was giving a refund..I was like I’m out n took my children else where… Only SNITCHES give police wut they want ain’t like no one was killed.. They get info n deposit for the party’s commen sense there ur suspect there

Anon March 9, 2014 at 8:09 AM

It does seem strange that a place for children serves beer. That would be the first thing I would cut out. This should not be a bar for parents it is a place for kids to have fun. As to Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill they are close to the same I grew up in Pleasant Hill family still lives there, both towns seem to keep better control over this type of crap.

Been to s Little League or Soccer game lately...??? March 9, 2014 at 8:11 AM

Parents can’t even park their cars without expressing hostility toward one another…..and then it gets worse…..

Axl Rose March 9, 2014 at 8:25 AM

I cannot believe I used to bring my kids there for parties. What a shame. Disgraceful. My old Concord neighborhood is traded as well (off of Ayers). The economy and creep from “over the hill” has made Concord regress to a ghetto. It’s a shame. Shame.

Axl Rose March 9, 2014 at 8:26 AM

I cannot believe I used to bring my kids there for parties. What a shame. Disgraceful. My old Concord neighborhood is trashed as well (off of Ayers). The economy and creep from “over the hill” has made Concord regress to a ghetto. It’s a shame. Shame.

One cause for this, March 9, 2014 at 8:47 AM

I was surprised to hear they serve alcohol,
stop selling alcohol , how is this legal to serve
alcohol with children present! With all the stupid
laws and this is legal! No wonder.

Silva March 9, 2014 at 9:05 AM

The Jungle doesn’t need to be serving alcohol. Period. It’s a CHILDREN’S venue, right? There are a lot of parents with addiction & chemical abuse issues, but don’t encourage them to bring that garbage to what should be fun & safe CHILDREN’S entertainment. I won’t be attending any more birthday parties there, that’s for sure. Too bad. My Mom and I used to take my son there when he was little, and we’ve been to parties there for my grandson & friends, but no more.

Charlie March 9, 2014 at 9:26 AM

Awww…Nunya Bee figured out how to use the internet!

raisin barr March 9, 2014 at 10:02 AM

I didn’t know that they serve alcohol at the Jungle. That is just plain stupid. The Concord Police Department has quickly responded to the few times that I have called them. When there is a problem, such as this, at a business that sells alcohol, law enforcement personnel are required to submit a report to the ABC. I am talking about every time! If they have been doing this, the Jungle would no longer have a license to sell alcohol. It is this simple. ABC are a bunch of slackers as well. I have zero respect for the entire ABC department.

How sad March 9, 2014 at 11:16 AM

@Eric just so you know the cities of Walnut Creek & Pleasant Hill are 10 times better than they used to be. They made an effort to clean up their cities, where Concord has made the choice to make our city a ghetto.
I’ve lived here for over 60 years, raised my sons here and it’s getting progressively worse. They need to quit renting to section 8 in the Detroit Monument, Solano area. They need to have more ICE visits in these areas, and the trash needs to be removed.

anonanonagain March 9, 2014 at 11:24 AM

It’s not so astonishing these days that people act like hoodlums. They are glorified in our media (reality tv shows) music and culture.
Just because someone carries a Coach handbag and wears the latest jeans does not make them classy or educated, they are still trash…….

Cowellian March 9, 2014 at 11:42 AM

If I remember correctly, a Claycord story about an unprotected electrical outlet at the Jungle was the first time we saw the power of the Claycord community in action.

CLAYCORD.com March 9, 2014 at 11:47 AM

You are correct, Cowellian. It was unprotected outlets and broken, sharp, rides.

Pro Fi March 9, 2014 at 11:48 AM

Just a thought….

How many of the posters here complaining about the decline of the standard of living in Concord; Section 8 housing; EBT, etc. are absentee landlords that allow these conditions to exist?

As I have said in the past, make landlords accountable for the actions of their tenants and watch the problems dissipate. If I owned a rental and I found out my tenants were scumbags I would do everything in my power to have them removed as a liability. Antioch started going after “investors” that pillaged the foreclosure market to acquire rental/rent to own properties. They aren’t living in those neighborhoods, believe that.

Sabrina March 9, 2014 at 12:23 PM

This is sad. People need to grow up. Set a good example for their children. And, no, I don’t think alcohol should be served. But I understand why they serve it. Alcohol sales are easy money, and it draws the parents in.

marie March 9, 2014 at 12:31 PM

What does EBT, Pittsburg, Antioch and being black have Anything to do with who was fighting? ????! None of these describes my personal life however i find them ignorant, classless and soooo judgmental! The point here was that unfortunately regardless of status quo..there were ignorant adults who ruined and scared families of there outing! Instead of being mature individuals they decided to act like animals. .PERIOD. #discriminatingfools

I stay tuned into Claycord primarily to remind me what a great decision I made by moving out of California last year. Best decision of all my 41 years.

Just me March 9, 2014 at 2:08 PM

I was there yesterday. This fight started because a guy hit a girl. This all happened at the front door. A different guy then stepped in and the fight broke out. I helped break it up. The 2 guys seperated and ended up starting to fight once again in the rear of the building

The employees were mainly small girls in probably their 20’s. They were not willing nor capable of stopping the fight and called for help over the PA.

It took security over 10 mins to show up and it was just one guy. CPD showed up 15-20 minutes later and by then the people had left however I don’t think if they were there the girls would be able to ID them. They were pretty shaken up.

And yes the combatantswaste from 2 black families that were celebrating birthdays there.

As discraceful as it was I’d say 90% of the kids never noticed what was going on. They were busy running around playing

Sheila March 9, 2014 at 2:40 PM

@ Just Me—-85

Thanks for setting the record straight. I won’t defend this type of behavior, especially if children are present. Alcohol may or may not be involved. People need to grow up and set a good example. It doesn’t matter where you’re from.

I do give credit to men who will step up and break up a fight if a man hits a woman. Any man who lays his hands on a woman…….nothing further needs to be said.

When I was away at college in San Diego, my neighbor broke up a fight at a gas station. My neighbor was in his early 20’s, and he stopped a guy from beating up his girlfriend. He stayed until SDPD arrived. A couple of nights later (after he got out of jail) he pipe bombed our neighbors brand new truck. It blew out the windows in a nice neighborhood in San Diego, and my neighbor was evicted. His landlord said he didn’t want anymore problems, he hated to evict someone who paid his rent on time, and this was a very likeable, good young man.

My neighbor told me he could easily find a new place to live, call the insurance about his new truck, but he couldn’t live with himself had he not stopped this guy from beating up a young woman.

I will always have a lot of respect for my former neighbor who I haven’t thought of in over 30 years.

Cat Wrangler March 9, 2014 at 4:08 PM

And the Disney parks are successful because??

They provide a clean, safe, happy environment with well-trained , well-behaved staff with happy attitudes.

AND refuse access to their parks to those who are not dressed appropriately, appear to under influence of alcohol or other substance, unruly or combative. If any admitted to the park are found participating in these behaviors they are ejected and if those refuse ejection they are arrested.

Disney parks charge a higher price for admittance into their venues. And people pay it. The experience is considered so positive that the majority choose to return again and again. Long lines and waits don’t seem to deter from this – maybe because positive attitudes and outlooks don’t choose anger, violent methods to resolve discomfort and unhappiness. Disney venues are marketed as the happiest places on Earth – maybe because they are filled with people who think and act that way wherever they are.

Disney parks provide discount and promotions to individuals and groups that despite any advantage or disadvantage believe that it is a privilege, not a right, to visit their parks.

Disney parks do not discriminate based upon race, educational level, social strata, religion, health or financial well-being. They are just selective about who they admit into the park experience based upon attitude, dress and comportment.

Be careful people. It is a jungle out there – except at Disney venues..

Glad the man stepped in, sad that nobody else bothered to help.
Should have called the CPD Before the Lame Willows security – He’s too busy worried about how you park.

come on people this is a ongoing thing happened before will prob happen next weekend. the dems have strung us up so tight people get into fights at a childrens fun place. Yes the dems are to blame for their inadequate structure after they make everyone conform to the gov knows best and has to run every part of our lives they tell you to let them lead and your life will be well. they offer free money…housing….healthcare….drivers license …vehicles ….clothes….jobs…..groceries and yet for get to tell you how to handle your self around others …….obviously for 40 years this has been a dem dictatorship in this state and has been run accordingly and yet fights in heather farms park and the jungle happen often …..maybe id’s need to be checked to see if the problem is from one area. And well you name your business the jungle and you get what you get …right. The dems have put children safety and concern on the back burner ….the dems rant about saving kids and yet tax their parents so bad they get so high strung they can not conduct themselves with any respect infront of children. the dems have sent us right where they want us fighting with each other instead of seeing that they have created a nightmare to live in. OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THE SIGNS……………

Well this is what Walnut Creek is aspiring to. When growing up in Walnut Creek though in the 70’s we called the other town “Concrud” “Canckered” and the other side of the tracks (meaning the Bart tracked running between Minert and David Ave.)

Good to see that nothing’s changed!

Victor March 9, 2014 at 8:46 PM

I agree with take your kids to a park with fresh air. No alcohol is a good thing. If you don’t want your kids playing with too many strangers, take them during odd hours (if you can). Stay away from Sat. mornings. Just keep your kids safe!

Comments like yours is why I can’t stand many people from Walnut Creek. I see you folks on BART. You are the ones that will stand for the ride rather than sit next to a minority. You wear jewelry like it’s 1985. You remind me of the “popular kids” in high school, except you are not so popular these days. Just very sad and lonely. Sure, you are married and have kids, the house, the car…but you just can’t seem to figure out why your life feels so empty. It’s because you are in fact empty. There’s nothing behind your facade. It’s all just a deep abyss of sadness, encased in makeup, pointy heels, and bad earrings. You might be the last one to buy into your own BS character, because the rest of see right through your costume. Like the fat kid that wears a shirt two sizes too big, you aren’t fooling anyone.

How do you breathe with your head up your ass?

If they really serve alcohol there that is by far one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard of. The city of Concord needs to pull it’s head out of it’s ass and put a stop to this.

My brother in law has had a few birthdays for his kids there. I told my husband we would NOT be having our son’s birthdays there ever. We’ve attended to be nice but it does not attract the kind of people I want my family around, the pizza we had wasn’t edible (and I’ll eat almost anything) and it was not safe–exposed outlets and wires in the toddler area. Long story short the place makes my skin crawl. And yet, what is the city doing to make Concord nicer? Putting in more mini marts and fast food restaurants. Lovely.

KAD #96 – while most of the time it is better to play or have a birthday party outside that is not always an option. My birthday is early April and my mother always had plan A and plan B for my birthday parties. Plan A outside on the patio, plan B inside in the family room (no such thing as the Jungle when I was kid). As I go older it was usually 5 friends and mini golf or a movie depending on the weather. So planning a winter/early spring party involve and indoor provision and if it is a palce that requires an reservation like the Jungle well then once the deposit is made one must go.

Cat Wrangler,
Disney does have it’s share of problems they just don’t advertise. My brother’s classmate was stabbed and killed on Grad Night at Disneyland because a girl wanting to make her boyfriend jealous, falsely accused my this young man Mel Yorba of “flirting” with her. He only died because Disney didn’t call the paramedics and instead drove him in a company van so it wouldn’t attract attention. They were sued by the Yorba family and lost.Another young man had his throat slit in a Disney restaurant because he was wearing “gang colors” But yes, I agree they do filter who is allowed in,and keep the price of tickets high ($99) and alcohol sales low.

Call the Jungle, The Fungle. Every time we went there, my daughter would come home with a new virus. One time we found a dirty diaper in the plastic balls pit. GROSS!!!!!! The last time we went I swore never again because it was so dirty and disgusting.

Wow is no place safe anymore. This should be a safe place for the KIDS not adults to act like kids.
