Believe it or not the big three theme parks are virtually exempt from the safety and injury reporting standards applicable to amusement park rides in Florida. See for yourself at Florida Statutes Section 616.242. Why should Disney, Sea World and Universal Studios be held to lower standards of safety and government oversight than the County Fair? We need accountability for injuries to apply to all equally, not just the little guy. Florida owes its visitors governmental recording of theme park injuries theme park injuries so that we can all evaluate the safety of a ride before our children are put at risk. In the meantime check the lawsuits filed in Orange County Florida Circuit Court for certain rides you may be shocked at what you find.
