    Electrical failure

    There have been several notable cases of electrical failure at theme parks throughout the UK, a number of which have resulted in a various theme park accidents and injuries.

    Visitors have been left stranded, trapped on a ride for a several hours, which can be an extremely stressful experience. In most cases, these passengers are required to disembark the ride by climbing down a large ladder, seriously increasing the risk of falls from height.

    Not only have electrical failures caused rides to stop, they have also left riders suspended in an inverted position for an extended period of time. This can cause unpleasant motion-related conditions such as nausea and vomiting. Being suspended upside-down for a long period of time can also result in head, neck or shoulder injuries, due to being unnaturally compressed against the seat.
