It is unknown whether these accidents will lead to lawsuits or settlements, but it’s safe to say that the victims face considerable injuries. As a result, they will likely deal with various medical expenses, missed wages, and other losses. But how did these accidents happen, and could they have been avoided?

Roller Coaster Puts Boy in Hospital
On April 15th of 2022, it was reported that a boy had been injured at SeaWorld. He was riding the “Ice Breaker” roller coaster at the time of the accident. This is SeaWorld’s newest ride, and questions are already being raised over whether it was adequately tested prior to being revealed to the public. The injury actually occurred all the way back in February, but the details are just now emerging with SeaWorld’s required release of its incident reports.
The exact nature of the injury was never revealed, but we do know that his left leg was affected, and he had to be hospitalized for at least 2 hours. Some have speculated that the boy might have broken his leg. Not long after this incident, SeaWorld announced that it was changing its height requirements, stating that there were “operational issues” with smaller individuals on Ice Breaker. It is not known whether the boy’s injury caused SeaWorld to make these changes.
Guest Suffers a Fracture at Disney World
On April 15th, it was also reported that a guest had suffered a fall at Disney World, resulting in a fracture. This guest was apparently riding the Prince Charming’s Regal Carousel at Magic Kingdom. At some point, she attempted to get off her horse – but suffered a fall. Unfortunately, this led to a hip fracture. This was just one of many accidents detailed in Disney World’s recent incident reports, which they are required to release on a regular basis. These deports also contained details of people having seizures on certain rides, while others suffered strokes, seizures, or losses of consciousness.
