Patron dies on ropes course at Orlando shopping mall

Recommended Posts

As stated at the time, there were very good reasons a Tennessee park got rid of its very similar attraction.

What's especially tragic here is a daughter was doing the course with her early 50's Dad on Christmas Eve as she wanted to spend Christmas with her boyfriend. Now, she gets to spend every day of the rest of her life playing the "What if" game. And she had to spend today dealing with the tragic, awful aftermath of a totally unexpected, unnecessary death--one that appears to have been in no way her fault.

Needless to say, there WILL be a lawsuit. And no matter what the family recovers, it won't be enough. It won't be Dad, husband, brother, son. It will be cash. Good for nearly nothing at all in compensating for a loss like this.

This industry deals with peoples' lives. Every day. If you are a ride op, a maintenance person, an inspector, a supervisor, a ride builder or designer, a general manager, a director, a regulator--never forget that.

Safety is paramount.

Safety first.

Safety always.

Safety all ways.

It's not about money.

It's about people.
