A story from the AP:

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Police say a man was hurt in a 20-foot fall while waiting to get on the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride at Disney’s California Adventure theme park in Anaheim.

The 20-year-old was treated for minor injuries at a hospital and released.

Disneyland Resorts spokeswoman Suzi Brown says the man was in a line on a staircase leading to the attraction Wednesday night when he climbed over a barrier on a second-floor landing, lost his balance and fell. His name wasn’t released.

Martinez says there are some indications that the man had been drinking.

Police Sgt. Rick Martinez says the man was with friends when he put a leg over the railing, joked about the chance of someone falling over — then lost his balance and fell.

Let that be a listen to you, kids: When you’re two or more stories in the air, intoxicated, and clearly an a-hole, there’s no room to get cocky. Contrary to popular belief, drunken tumbles are not sexy. Plus, there’s a limit to how cool you can look in your 20s hanging out at Disney and this guy fell (wink) well under the bar on this ride.
