High Anxiety at Howl O Scream
Written by Erik Yates
A 16 year old girl was rushed to the hopsital Saturday night from Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa, where she was treated for anxiety and asthma. How do I know this? The girl was my sister, Sara. This is a perfect example how unknown pre-existing conditions can play a role in theme park safety. She had been in two houses, and Cheetah Chaser when she complained of dizziness and shortness of breath. She sat down for a while, when she got up she took five steps and fainted. Had we known about the condition before hand, we would not have let her go with us, with both my wife and I knowing the nature of the event. My hat is off to the Busch Gardens staff, however, who saw the situation and rushed to make it better. Without their help a bad situation was turned into just an unfortunate one. No doubt in my mind that they should receive outstanding customer service awards, and the two that helped us (the two that stood out amongst all of the great staff) should be commended.Tweet
