California's Great America bumper cars lawsuit
Posted 16 June 2011 - 10:14 PM
The reason I bring this to your attention and the reason its in the future section of the forums is because this could possibly have extremely huge implications on what people can go after parks for. Most of these go unnoticed and unreported due to the nature of the injuries. Most of the times they're only bumps and bruises, but in cases like this, it could mean extremely bad things for parks. Like what if people started suing over all the other things that happen on rides too, no matter how minor the injury? I think most of you know that when one ride of a certain type has problems, others are rehabbed to prevent similar events in the future. For instance, bumper cars at bigger chain parks are either slowed down or have it where they all go in one direction. Some are reduced to un-ridable attractions. What could this mean for other rides? Could we have coasters that have so many restraints that the forces are either non-existent or even more uncomfortable than what made them injure a person in the first place? Could we get coasters that barely make it over hills and loops because they're trimmed to death? What would this mean for record breaking rides, more so with faster and taller rides? I realize I may be a bit over the top on this, but I think there are plausible scenarios where this could exponentially increase the suits and the like on parks. I'll be the first to admit if I'm wrong if this isn't the case, but I'll admit, this has me worried.
