Latest Theme Park Incidents

These are among the dozen Orlando theme park incidents that happened this summer when visitors were sick or hurt on rides and needed at least 24 hours of hospitalization, according to the latest state injury report released this month.

It’s always hard to know exactly what happened or how seriously someone was hurt. The state injury report, released by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, doesn’t provide many details — only the bare-boned basics.
