A woman is suing Walt Disney Parks and Resorts after she said an employee slammed a gate on her as she was entering the Space Mountain ride, according to the lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Orange County against the theme park. In the complaint, the Tennessee woman said she was injured during her visit to the park on February 26, 2018.
The woman said she was entering the Space Mountain Ride at Magic Kingdom when an employee closed a gate on her. The lawsuit did not describe the extent of the woman’s injuries. The woman is seeking payment for damages in excess of $30,000, claiming the employee failed to exercise reasonable care, failed to conduct inspections of the ride and failed to safely control the ride, among other claims.

Amusement parks in America as we have come to know them were developed in the 1890’s. For hundreds of years, people around the world have enjoyed the wonders and excitement of amusement parks. The National Amusement Park Historical Association (NAPHA) defines an amusement park simply as “an entertainment facility featuring rides, games, food and sometimes shows. The phrase “amusement park rides” includes vehicles, rides, and devices having an entertainment purpose in permanently established amusement, theme, and waterparks or at carnivals, fairs, and other temporary amusement venues.
Florida is known for its amusement parks and also its water parks. Just in Orlando, you have the four theme parks that make up Disney World (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios), Sea World, Universal, and Islands of Adventure. These theme parks open their doors to millions of families each year. An amusement park accident occurs when a serious injury or death transpires at an amusement park.
