    Three people were hospitalized with chest pains and three others with broken bones after riding Central Florida theme-park attractions during the past three months.

    The major theme parks regulate their own ride-safety programs, but they report basic details of serious ride injuries, usually defined as requiring at least 24 hours in a hospital, to the Florida Bureau of Fair Rides Inspection.

    In the latest quarterly reports, obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, Walt Disney World listed eight ride incidents and Universal Orlando two during July, August and September. SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Wet 'n Wild reported no incidents.

    I think that is a remarkably small number considering the volumes of people attending and the age groups covered!
