Every year millions of people venture to amusement parks for recreational fun and quality time with family and friends. Amusement parks like Six Flags and Disneyland provide an escape from everyday life and are a staple of American culture.
However, these parks that are filled with thrilling rides and attractions can pose a safety risk. The reality is that amusement park guests are susceptible to injury or wrongful death. There were more than 1,200 injuries per year on amusement park rides between 2001 and 2011.
