An Orlando Sentinel article reveals that there have been more than 400 reports of illness and injury linked with Florida amusement park rides in the 10-year period between 2006 and 2016. During this time, there were 14 fatalities, all of which occurred at Disney theme parks. Click here to access a searchable database of theme park injuries by injury type and park.

The report includes the following types of injuries:

  • Dizziness
  • Motion sickness
  • Fainting
  • Neck pain
  • Chest pain/shortness of breath
  • Fractures from falls

While some of these incidents involved people with preexisting health conditions, others might have been prevented with the proper precautions.
