Eh, it's not that big of a deal. At least those stupid kids can't stand up on the drop anymore :p

I be a victim, though that's probably not the reason why it closed (as clarified by mcjaco). Wasn't used to to scary things at the age of 6 and my dad told me it'll be fun, he had a good laugh looking at me afterwards.

Those lap-bars don't seem like they'll lock you down tight, so I'm okay with them being there.

Good news. I visited the park yesterday with some friends and walked past splash. I saw no less then three boats with three people in a row, one was full of adults! So it looks like they still allow this, but I can't imagine it's very comfortable.

Disney Getting Sued Because of Hot Nacho Cheese!

Postby Tmcdllr » Sat Feb 12, 2011 5:57 pm

From AOL news

http://news.travel.aol.com/2011/02/12/nacho-cheese-leads-to-disney-suit/?icid=maing|main5|dl2|sec3_lnk1|43665

The parents of a 4-year-old California boy are suing Walt Disney Parks and Resorts claiming hot nacho cheese scalded and scarred their son during a visit to Walt Disney World.

Isaiah Harris suffered "permanent scarring, pain and suffering" as a result of the burns, according to the suit, which seeks medical cost and punitive damages for emotional distress.

The boy's parent, Michael and Maria Harris of Chula Vista. Calif., are also seeking damages saying they suffered "serious emotional distress."

The family says the incident occured in March at Cosmic Ray's Starlite Cafe in Tomorrowland at Disney's Magic Kingdom theme park in Florida. They claim a paper cup with scalding cheese splashed on the child's face when he grabbed a food tray.

"The cheese should not have been that hot," says Sean Cahill, the family's attorney.

Disney released a statement saying that the company is reviewing the lawsuit but is saddened by the child's injuries. "It is unfortunate when any child is hurt."

This is the second suit against a Disney park this week. In the other case, a quadriplegic man claims that he was stuck in the "It's a Small World" ride for 40 minutes at Disneyland in California, and that there was no way to evacuate him in his wheelchair. He is suing for negligence and emotional distress.


While I do feel terrible for the boy who got burned I do have to wonder, who doesn't know nacho cheese is supposed to be hot?

Believe me, people are THAT stupid.

In my opinion this is a case of a bunch of sue-happy people looking for a way to get a lot of money, and that is just stupid.

Yeah, why is it when something goes wrong, the first thing that pops into these peoples' heads is "I wonder if I can sue for this?" It's sad because things like that are what surround the legitimate lawsuits with negativity.
