Some parks are safer than others. Common sense dictates that a more well-established high-end park is safer, and statistically, this is true. Traveling fairs are the most dangerous, and there is substantial wear and tear on the rides from setting them up and taking them down, and the quality and training of the staff is not as high. Disneyworld, Disneyland and Great Adventure have the highest standards.

THEORIES OF LIABILITY
Like all owners and operators of property, amusement parks are subject to premises liability, and are responsible for any dangerous conditions on their property. They are also liable for negligence for negligent hiring and training of their staff. A product liability claim can be made if it can be shown that even with inspection and maintenance the design of the ride was so poor that it is “inherently dangerous.” A wrongful death claim arises if the injuries sustained result in a fatality. These complicated intersections of law require an experienced amusement park accident attorney to navigate successfully to hold the responsible parties liable for their negligence.
