As property owners in the state of New York, amusement parks such as Adventureland Amusement Park owe a duty of care to visitors anywhere on their property. This includes all water parks, roller coaster operators, theme parks, and similar venues.
Amusement park/theme park owners are generally legally responsible for accidents resulting from their negligence, with that responsibility extending to medical expenses, income losses, pain and suffering, and other costs.
There are many ways to have fun on an amusement park outing—and, unfortunately, many ways to suffer an injury, as well. If any of these caused or contributed to your injury, Adventureland Amusement Park is likely liable for your injuries:
- Improper ride maintenance and inspections
- Mechanical failure of the ride (in this case, the rid manufacturer may share liability or may even be the primary liable party)
- Improper instruction on ride usage, including the instruction to stand or remain seated
- Improperly fastened or defective safety restraints
- Untrained and inexperienced park staff
- Negligent operation of a ride (for example, operating at too high a speed.)
- Upkeep and maintenance of amusement park property, including parking lots, washrooms, food service areas, and walkways
Under respondeat superior laws, the park owner is responsible for any negligence on the part of park employees, too. If a staff member fails to uphold their duty to keep guests safe or allows an unsafe situation to occur, the case can be against the park ownership, as well as the individual worker. As the ownership is likely to have significant insurance coverage, it is most likely that is where a recovery would come from. When negligence results in serious or catastrophic injury, our attorneys stand ready to file insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits against Adventureland Park, seeking financial compensation for our clients.

There is no national governing authority to ensure the safety of rides at amusement parks. Instead, inspection is left up to individual states. The State of New York has several inspections to ensure the safety of amusement park rides. The State Department of Labor inspects all the rides at stationary amusement parks at least once per year.
Ride operators working at mobile fairs and carnivals must schedule an appointment at least ten days in advance for an inspection to be performed each time the ride moves to a different location. Finally, a ride cannot be operated without a permit from the State Department of Labor. In 2018 alone, the DOL performed 1,734 inspections on 9,170 amusement rides. In theory, this should reduce the risk of injury accidents.
Unfortunately, and sometimes tragically, accidents still do happen at amusement parks. We will determine if another party’s negligence caused your injuries, supporting a legal claim. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury, you may be entitled to compensation for any of the following types of damages:
- Lost income and diminished earning capacity
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation fees
- Disability services
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
