Amusement parks, waterparks, and similar venues can be wholesome fun for the entire family. However, these venues are not always fun and games. In some cases, accidents could occur, and this could lead to injury. In this section of our website, we discuss many of the common injuries that a person might sustain at an amusement park or similar venue.
Causes of Injury
The first thing to consider is the cause of common injuries and issues at amusement parks. Some common causes of injury include poor ride maintenance, poor supervision, the height or weight requirements for rides not being enforced, and mechanical errors. In addition, there can be inadequate ride supervision and improper ride setup. Too many rides, improper training, lack of focus, and more could impact rides and make them unsafe for child and adult riders alike.
Now that you know why some of these issues occur, take some time to understand what the common injuries at these venues tend to be. Common injuries include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Cuts and lacerations
- Broken bones and fractures
- Whiplash, concussions, and other head and neck injuries
In some cases, injuries can be even more serious. Rides such as roller coasters could result in aneurysms, stroke, and even death.
