National Lampoon's Vacation

Plot hole: When the Griswolds are at Wally World, supposedly the only people there are the guards. Who operates the rides for them?

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The guards also knew how to operate the rides.

Original mistake is correct. There were only 2 guards. 1 they kidnapped. The other they left lying like a dog until he could call the police. Therefore, there was nobody to operate the rides. Besides amusement parks don't train security to operate the rides.
