- while the parks are not open to the public
- with supervision
Disney has segways - but doesn't use them in the park with guests (that I've ever seen). They use them in parking lots, etc.
Segways are very cool, but like all powered vehicles, pose a risk.
Disney is not alone.. many cities have banned them from sidewalks, and some countries have banned them in public places PERIOD.
The FDA angle is a very defendable position. Disney doesn't want powered vehicles in the park... the exception would be for things that are a medical necessity. How are you to judge that w/o bias or worry about customer's threatening to sue, etc? You go with a government standard.
Anyone who has played with these realize how dangerous they can be when not used properly.
Besides.. this is an OLD story (from 2004 and older).. what makes you bring this up now?
