Man Climbs Pyramid in Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion

In what can be only be described as a "what was he thinking?" and "this is why we can't have nice things" moment, a man decided to climb the pyramid in Epcot's Mexico pavilion earlier this week. According to online reports the guest had been enjoying the Epcot Food & Wine Festival when he decided it was a good time to test out his climbing skills.

Guests who witnessed the climb say the man was visibly intoxicated and had been receiving "a lot" of attention for his shenanigans at the Festival.

The pyramid climber reached the top of the structure before climbing down. The man was reportedly with a group of friends at the Food & Wine Festival and he reportedly was able to avoid the security officers who were waiting for him at the bottom of the pyramid.

There is no word on what happened to him after his Mexican adventure.

File this misadventure under "what not to do at Epcot."

I can't say that I've never wanted to do it - but that doesn't mean I would ever actually try! What on earth was he thinking?!

What concerns me is the effect it would have had on any children watching, had he fallen.

I've alway wondered why its not an actual "attraction" vs just a prop. . .nonetheless, having climbed the real Pyramid of the Sun in Mexico this one doesn't seem that entertaining. How did he manage to "avoid" security is the real question.

I heard about this right before we headed out to the Food & Wine Festival last night. Needless to say, security was beefed up around the pyramid & there were "No Climbing" signs strategically posted. As we walked by, I told my husband what had happened. His response was, "he must've started drinking from the other side of the World Showcase..."

That's precisely why they placed that structure in front of the steps: too many nuts were climbing it. Most of them were injured.

I think it's people like this that are going to ruin an awesome event for the people that enjoy it responsibly.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, would be why they put that facade up at the bottom of the stairs- not that he found it to be a deterrent. Idiot though, guarantee he's going to ruin things for the rest of us and force Disney's hands at putting in drink limitations or heightened security.

Yet another reason why the time of the Food&Wine festival at Disney is way, way off my radar. Could be fun but certainly too many, uh, inebriated young people not really there to enjoy all that Disney has to offer.
