Jury finds for Disney in Tower of Terror lawsuit

A many suing Disney claiming that the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park caused his stroke has lost his case after a jury decided in Disney’s favor. This lawsuit was unique in that it challenged Disney’s claim that the attraction was safe and not that an injury was caused by a malfunction.

Not only does Disney have physics on its side here, but they have the numbers as well. Millions of people have been on Tower of Terror and only a small handful have complained of serious injury following their experience, small enough that it’s within the statistical probability range for just walking down the street and being injured. Can’t blame Disney for that, although apparently you can try.
