“Thank you for checking on this. We did recently have a guest report that he had struck his hand on a beam while riding the Iron Gwazi roller coaster. The guest declined any medical treatment at the park after the ride was over.
The safety of our guests is our highest priority and all our rides are designed and installed according to all applicable standards, manufacturer specifications and include specific ride restrictions for the safety of our guests.
Out of an abundance of caution, the morning after this situation, crews removed two beams from the area where the guest reported this situation occurred. We took the precautionary step to remove them as part of our commitment to the health and safety of our guests.”
As the above statement suggests, the guest didn’t suffer any serious injuries.
