Court Ruling in South Korea Allowing People with Vision Impairment to Ride Roller-Coasters

Individuals with vision impairment won access to roller-coasters by the Seoul Cental District Court, following a damage suit filed by three customers at Everland, a major theme park in Yongin, South Korea. Everland had to award each of the customers two million won ($1,750) after the park denied them access to the ride in 2015. “’There is little evidence to support the argument that the roller-coaster would be more risky for the plaintiffs than others,’ the court said. ‘Thus, it should be considered an act of discrimination against discrimination against disabled people.’” Read more about in COOL BLIND TECH.
