Orlando, Florida, is perhaps one of the best places to go if you’re a fan of theme parks. From Walt Disney World and SeaWorld to Universal Studios and LEGOLAND, Guests will find thrills, chills, and some delicious treats no matter which one they choose.

Over the years, all of these theme parks have added to their growing lists of rides, attractions, and experiences, promising Guests an amazing time. The Universal Orlando Resort is the best example of this, opening two new attractions in the last few years that rival the best of th best, those being Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure and Jurassic World VelociCoaster.

Unfortunately, accidents still happen, and Guests get injured at the Parks and Resorts. A new injury report details the first round of injuries for the first quarter of 2023.

Universal Team Members are some of the best there are and always look out for Guests in trouble. Guests in need of anything are highly encouraged to let Universal employees know.

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.
