Meisaims: Dude, they were just trying to keep you alive. I appreciate your service. Perhaps counseling would be beneficial.
Jeep2011: It is a safety and insurance issue. They should have refunded his money or had him sing a wavier.
Molavian: Cheesehead_Dave: abhorrent1: The amusement park recommends that guests with special needs visit their website to review policies before visiting.How about you just quit being dicks and let the guy go on the rides? Does that work for you?/Why the fark do you need arms or legs to ride a roller coaster?Because roller coasters occasionally have problems that require unloading trains in other places than the station. It's already a stressful situation having fully-limbed adults and kids walking on catwalks and down maintenance steps. They probably don't want the added liability of having to handle a rider that's missing a couple of limbs.While this guy might have been capable of handling himself, many others possibly couldn't, so it's easier to have the policy applied to everyone rather that have to deal with it on a case-by-case basis.Yeah, because I'm sure the land whales having heart attacks from walking down 5 stories are so much less likely to sue.
LessO2: Does anyone else think it's kind of stupid that the guy had to pay to enter the park in the first place?

MaudlinMutantMollusk: You have to have one functional arm for what? Waving over your head and not hanging on?
propasaurus: Wounded war vet goes on ride at Six Flags, is injured, sues the living crap out of Six Flags since they should have known he'd be injured and should have prevented him from riding.
