From July to September, Walt Disney World, Florida’s largest theme-park operator, reported four injuries, two of which took place in its busiest park, the Magic Kingdom. 'One injury involved a 26-year-old woman who suffered nausea, vomiting and neck pain on Space Mountain. The woman "reportedly underwent surgery to the head prior to being released from the hospital," according to Disney's report,”' the Sentinal reported.

Other injuries reported at the Magic Kingdom included a toddler experiencing difficulty breathing, a 39-year old man suffering a seizure, and a 43-year old woman who was cut on the Humunga Kowabunga in Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park.

Amusement park accidents involve incidents that occur in all types of amusement parks. These include large-scale parks, such as Disneyland or Disney World, Six Flags theme parks, and water parks down to smaller, traveling carnivals, animal parks, state fairs and school carnivals. Accidents occur at all types of amusement parks, carnivals and fairs and can involve park guests and outsourced workers who maintain the grounds.

Although amusement parks can be fun places to visit or work, amusement park accidents can be serious events, resulting in permanent injury and even death to victims. Wrongful death lawsuits have been filed against some amusement parks, alleging amusement park accidents resulted in amusement park deaths. Other serious amusement park injuries include whiplash, neck and back injuries, heart attacks, broken bones and internal injuries. Visitors to parks, park employees or contracted workers can all be involved in amusement park accidents and may all be eligible to file a claim in the event of an amusement park injury.
