Florida Amusement Park Injury Information


The greater Tampa Bay area, including Orlando, is home to some of the country's finest and most visited amusement parks and tourist attractions. Not only do Floridians enjoy the parks, but so do thousands of vacationers each and every year. These parks include such places as the following:

Busch Gardens
Lowry Park Zoo
Islands of Adventure
Wet N Wild
Florida Aquarium
Discovery Cove
Sea World
Adventure Island
Magic Kingdom
According to the International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions (IAAPA), approximately 280,000,000 guests visited amusement parks in the United States and safely enjoyed 1,700,000,000 rides during the past reported year. A recent Fixed-Site Amusement Ride Injury Survey highlights that an estimated 1,086 ride related injuries occurred in the past reported year. Roughly 65 of those injuries were further reported as "serious," meaning they required some form of extended treatment at a hospital or resulted in a wrongful death. Based upon recent statistics, approximately 6 percent of all amusement park rides result in serious injuries. Children more often sustain injuries on amusement park rides as opposed to adults. A Tampa Amusement Park Injury Attorney can assist in ensuring the amusement park adhered to the appropriate laws and/or ordinances which they are required to follow.
