Two Elderly Guests Fell and Were Hospitalized Getting Off and On Rides at the Magic Kingdom

The Orlando Sentinel has released a summary of injuries and incidents that have occurred at major theme parks in the last quarter (January through March). Theme parks normally self-disclose and incidents that require at least 24-hour hospitalization to remain transparent with guests… and avoid state inspections.

Among the injuries listed are a 69-year-old man who fell and fractured his hip while climbing off the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at the Magic Kingdom on January 30th, and a 75-year-old man who fell and fractured his leg while entering the Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, also at the Magic Kingdom, on March 18th.

Additionally, a 30-year-old man with a pre-existing condition experienced a seizure while riding Slinky Dog Dash at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on February 2nd.
