Halloween Safety Part 1 Haunted House Liability
Each fall, people flock to attractions like haunted houses, pumpkin farms and hay rides as they celebrate the season. It comes as no surprise that many people are injured at these events and attractions, as many involve large crowds and dark spaces.
Haunted attractions are bound by premises liability, which is the liability of an owner or possessor of a property for injuries in that space. Entrants and attendees must be provided with reasonable care under the circumstances regarding the state of the premises or acts done or omitted on them. It is incumbent on the attraction operator to properly screen guests and only allow those who are appropriate to participate. There is certainly a chance for injury on attractions like hay rides, inflatables and in haunted houses with stairs, smoke-filled rooms and moving floors. Operators have a responsibility to ensure the safety of visitors to their attractions by making sure equipment is functioning and being used properly.
