What to Know About Amusement Park Accidents
Amusement parks provide an escape from everyday worries. As experience designer, Gregory Beck notes “the appeal of parks is that people can share emotions and share stories with their friends.”
Unfortunately, amusement park accidents can occur and often result in serious injury or even death. Roughly 30,000 theme park injuries require medical treatment each year.
Amusement Park Injuries
There are roughly 475 amusement and theme parks in America, ranging from mega-parks like Disney or Universal to smaller family-owned regional parks. Each year over a half a billion people visit an amusement park worldwide; and in the United States alone, an estimated 375 million people attend yearly.
No one expects to be hurt, but how likely is someone to be injured at a carnival, state fair, or amusement park? The likelihood of being injured on an amusement park ride varies between 1 in every 15.5 million to 1 in every 24 million.
Ride malfunctions, unexpected failures, and park accidents don’t happen frequently, but when they do the results are traumatic and devastating.
What are Common Causes of Amusement Park Accidents?
Recent tragedies have been linked to derailment, locking malfunctions, operator negligence, operator error, and failed safety regulations. Fault can be found with the manufacturer, the amusement park, or the ride operator.
One of the most common causes of an amusement park injury is operator negligence. Negligence can be due to improper maintenance, failure to properly secure, or disregard for safety regulations.
Filing a lawsuit not only helps those injured find resolution, but provides a deterrent to an amusement park’s continued negligence.
15% of amusement park incidents occur on water slides, and 82% occur on theme park rides. Nationwide Children’s Hospital estimates that 28% of injuries occur on a roller-coaster.
