Florida’s biggest theme parks, which include places like the Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World Resorts as well as SeaWorld and LEGOLAND, are required to self-report Guests’ injuries when they are hurt on rides and attractions and hospitalized for at least 24 hours after their injury.

It’s important to note that past investigations by publications such as the Orlando Sentinel have shown reports of injuries can often be inaccurate.
