Legislators Prohibit Some Teenagers From Operating Amusement Park Rides

A new legislation is approved to keep some teenagers from working at amusements parks this summer.

The Senate gave final approval to legislation Tuesday night that would bar anyone younger than 18 from operating amusement rides.

The decision comes less than a year after an accident at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville where a girl’s feet were severed while on a ride.

Investigators say a 16-year-old was operating the “Superman Tower of Power” ride at the time.
