Description

An ongoing Web reporting project collects injury/accident/ incident reports at theme parks in the United States. In a message posted on the website of Theme Park Insider editor Robert Niles reveals that there is a gap between the types of injuries that theme parks must report and those that they don't need to under the law. The unreported injuries include broken arms, sprained ankles, concussions and lacerations requiring stitches, the story reports. The online project "seeks to educate consumers about theme park safety, and provide them the information they to need to stay safe while visiting a park."
