Dollywood sued after woman falls from ride

Posted Friday, January 2, 2015 10:45 AM | Contributed by Jeff

A woman’s brain injury from a headfirst fall from a ride at Dollywood was caused by a mix of sleet and rain that made the ride “dangerously slick” and a lack of adequate safety measures, according to a lawsuit against the Tennessee theme park’s operators. Once the Brown family’s ride had stopped, Tedi Brown thought the ride was over and lifted her lap bar to exit her seat, it said. She quickly realized the seats were too high to exit safely but lost her grip on the lap bar due to the slick conditions, the suit said.
