It’s that time of year again when the Orlando theme parks submit reports of any accident and injury which have occurred on their property.

The state’s 2018 First Quarter report includes any accident and injury from January 1, 2018 through March 31, 2018. The report includes all incidents which have occurred on rides, resulted in immediate hospitalization lasting more than 24 hours, or any deaths. While, thankfully, there were no deaths reported this quarter there were still a handful of incidents which required reporting.

For the first quarter of 2018, Busch Gardens and Legoland had no injuries or accidents to report. Disney World reported 3 incidents, Universal reported 2 incidents and Sea World had 1 incident to report.
