Carowinds sued by disabled family for denying access to rides

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

A lawsuit was filed Wednesday alleging Carowinds amusement park discriminated against a family by refusing to allow them to ride a number of rides because of a person’s disability. A Clover man, his son and his daughter all have lower leg amputations because of a medical condition. The lawsuit claims the family members were denied access to rides "not because of legitimate safety requirements" but because of "speculation, stereotypes, and generalizations" about their ability to safely ride them.
