End of The Season


11.5.15 - The season has come to and end for many parks. We now look through all the injury submissions as well as go over our own notes from visits we made through the year.


It has been quite eventful, despite the fact we did not update our webpage much. We have worked on several small ride injury cases which allowed us to showcase our ride injury information. This has in turn led to bigger opportunities, which allows us to assist those of you injured on rides, as well as shoot down false injury claims.


Also wanted to thank all the line employees who assisted us this year. You've made a world of difference. While the parks you work at may not like the information you have provided us, know it will be put to good use!
