So what's the hubbub with this? Not really any info released. Anyone know what happened?

How so? They made it public it as soon as it happened and the media reported it.

Disney parks have a death toll higher than class action park but for some reason nobody cares.

A quick google search will back up that claim. Action park is listed as having six desths during their operation. While Disney (I didn’t bother going through each park, stopped once I reached seven deaths between HS and the bus/parking terminal) surpasses that number. Although culpability/liability aside, ALOT of Disney deaths are attributed to cardiac arrest, stroke, etc. And alot of those were undiagnosed heart trouble.

But the assertion of More deaths at Disney remains valid. Just uncertain of the correlation he’s trying to make.

Unless you weight that by number of visitors it doesn't mean much. (Even if you do, it doesn't mean much, but still...)

I look at it this way.

Action park was opened for 18 years with a total number of 6 deaths. 6/18 = .333 deaths per year.

Disney World has been open for 46 years with 14 deaths(7 had prior health conditions) so 14/46 = .304 per year, take out the prior conditions .152 deaths per year.

Also factor in what kpjb said.

Then again my math could be wrong.

Average yearly attendance at Disney World is 52 Million visitors, give or take. I doubt Action Park saw that number throughout its entire lifespan.

California is more dangerous than the sun because more people die in California.

California is more dangerous than everything because proposition 65 says so.
