Orlando Theme Park Injuries, Third Quarter 2009

Comments Off

According to state records, Orlando’s big theme parks reported six major guest injuries during the final three months of 2009. Four injuries were reported at Walt Disney World: a 59-year-old became dizzy and tripped while exiting the Tomorrowland Speedway, injuring his knee; a 61-year-old woman who rode Dinosaur and had a seizure; a 27-year-old man who rode Expedition Everest and had a seizure; and a 74-year-old man who fainted and hit his head after riding Star Tours.

Universal Studios reported two injuries: a 29-year-old woman vomited riding Dueling Dragons, and a 40-year-old man experienced chest pain riding Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit.

No injuries were reported at Seaworld, Wet ‘n Wild, or Busch Gardens Tampa.

I have previously blogged about the lack of reporting at the big theme parks. Florida and the Federal Government both give the major theme parks in Florida a free ride when it comes to reporting accidents in injuries. Although six injuries were reported, we have no way of knowing whether this is the true figure.
