Theme Park Ride Injuries

A study of more than 2,000 accident reports finds nausea, fainting and dizziness were the most common ailment by riders. Older rides typically had more injuries than newer rides.

In today's LA Times business section, I have a story about theme park ride injuries. I was not able to get the parks to turn over ridership numbers so that I could calculate a safety rating. Any ideas on where I could get ridership numbers?

Well TPI has a pretty good documented database on injuries at theme parks, but I am not sure as minor as you are asking. I have a feeling the Orlando newspapers keep tabs on the FL parks.
