Two women have sued Busch Gardens Williamsburg for $2.25 million in separate, unrelated, lawsuits after they say they were injured in the park.
Heather Gonzalez claimed she was injured on the Trade Wind ride nearly two years ago. She filed a lawsuit on Jan. 23.
Courtney Telles filed a lawsuit after claiming that she hit her head near the park’s entrance in September 2018 during the Howl-O-Scream event. According the court documents, she alleges that she lost wages and required medical care due to the injury. The two suits are asking for a combined total of approximately 2.5 million.
Howl-O-Scream is an annual special event that occurs at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay , and SeaWorld San Antonio. The parks remain operational during the day and transition to Howl-O-Scream at night. The event features haunted houses, “scare zones”, and live entertainment. It is a seasonal event that occurs from September 13 to November at Busch Gardens Williamsburg for 2020.
