  • Lawsuit filed against Knott's over injury to child from Log Ride

    I heard this story on KNX news radio this afternoon, that an Illinois family has sued Knott's over their child's injury while riding the Timber Mountain Log Ride. Apparently the five year-old child was riding in his father's lap and at the bottom of the flume and hit his head on the top of the log in front of him, leading to a dislocated eye socket.

    A dislocated EYE SOCKET. Man I don't know the family, but boy do I feel bad for them, especially for the kid. But the kid shouldn't have been riding on his dad's lap in the first place. No sitting on other people's laps is like theme park 101.

      All the injuries they mention happened to small children. Maybe they need to raise the minimum height requirement.

        Agreed, or replace the ride's safety system and logs.

          thing is it was not knotts fault the kid did not hold on to the railing in the boat so when they went down the first drop he went forward and smacked his face, theres few tiems knotts is at fault but almost 98% is the moron guests fault for not holding on to hand rails or just following the rules and they want to sue for any damn reason

              Worked at Knott's for a summer waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy back in 1990 when the Knott family was still in charge. At that time they had the best record for safety of any of the local parks. In fact, they drilled guest safety into your head at every point in the training process. I don't know if things have changed or not in the Cedar Fair era.
