A recently filed lawsuit alleges that two plaintiff’s, who were disabled amputees, were not allowed by park officials to board a roller coaster ride at an amusement park.
The petition was filed by two seriously injured and disabled plaintiffs. One Plaintiff lost both arms after an electrical accident when he was a child; while the other Plaintiff had both legs amputated after a previous car accident. These Plaintiffs allege that they were denied entry to a roller coaster ride at an amusement park because of their injuries.
The lawsuit further alleges that the Plaintiffs were informed by the roller coaster operators that park policy required all riders to have at least one hand and one leg in order to be granted access to the ride.
The suit claims that the popular amusement park committed a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
