Florida theme parks report 4th quarter injuries
Feb 3, 2014
The Central Florida theme parks have released their 4th-quarter injury reports, which are voluntary, but are done in accordance with an agreement the parks made with the state. If they continue to turn in quarterly injury reports, they will be exempt from public ride-safety regulations. Universal Orlando's list had six people and Walt Disney World had five.
Three guests on Universal's list were from Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Islands of Adventure. A 51-year-old man was motion sick, a 40-year-old man fainted and a 70-year-old had chest pain on the ride. A 68-year-old woman rode Terminator 2: 3D and had complaints of abdominal pain. Two guests "presented with confusion." One was a 67-year-old woman on Dragon Challenge and the other was a 61-year-old woman on Disaster.
Five injuries were reported by Walt Disney World. Three of these were at the Magic Kingdom, including a "a 75-year-old woman who fell and broke her wrist while exiting the Mad Tea Party, a 48-year-old man who felt ill after riding Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and a 35-year-old man with a pre-existing condition who felt heart pain before and after riding The Haunted Mansion."
Also on the list was a 68-year-old man at Typhoon Lagoon who broke his toe on Castaway Creek and a 29-year-old woman who was disoriented and had slurred speech when she got off Expedition Everest.
There were no injuries reported for SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa, Legoland Florida or Wet 'n Wild.
