Discrimination at a theme park
I recently took my son to a theme park. My son has cerebral palsy with limited mobility, he has a wheelchair. He was advised he could not go on the rides just by sight of his wheelchair without any information about his ability. The rides did not state he could not go on them as the only advise given was back and neck problems to avoid. I have been to other theme parks where he has only been declined entry due to not being able to evacuate if a ride failed. I would like more information on my rights.
