Walt Disney World Resort (and every other theme Park on the planet) experiences accidents and ride injuries from time to time. It’s an unfortunate guarantee when operating a theme park. There are extreme thrill rides, roller coasters, spinning attractions, and many other rides with sudden starts, stops, and turns.
This month, there have been multiple Walt Disney World Resort guests who have experienced incidents and injuries.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services released its latest theme park injury report.
The report shows six different incidents filed at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
On September 8, a 50-year-old woman with an unknown pre-existing condition suffered a seizure after riding the newest Star Wars attraction.
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Slinky Dog Dash
This family coaster in Toy Story Land was also an attraction that caused a guest injury. On August 25, a woman felt motion sickness after exiting the ride. Soon after, she fainted in Toy Story Land.
This intense attraction at EPCOT is notorious for making guests feel ill due to its intense ride experience. On August 7, a 33-year-old woman with an unknown pre-existing condition experienced “abdominal pain” after riding the attraction. On September 28, a 69-year-old man with a preexisting cardiac condition felt dizzy after his experience on the intense ride.

Meanwhile, on July 31, an 18-year-old man had a seizure after riding the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster at Universal Studios Florida.
