Florida parks report injuries for last Quarter

The Orlando Sentinel has a list of injuries reported by Central Florida’s theme parks for the second quarter. It’s remarkable for two things. First, all the injuries are somewhat unremarkable and second, apparently SeaWorld and Busch Gardens had no injuries.

I don’t think this agreement between the parks and the state is actually accomplishing much. We need to know the situation behind the injuries, as well as reports from hospitals and urgent care centers from patients who claim to have been injured at the parks. Just judging on the number of times I see paramedics in the park, I definitely think things are a big under reported.

That said, I believe parks are quite safe. But more knowledge gives guests more power in deciding which rides are appropriate for them.
