NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — A new study says that the safest places to visit for kids are amusement parks, amusement parks and aquariums, and that Disney’s newest ride is probably not a good idea.
The report, released Wednesday, was commissioned by the American Civil Liberties Union and by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.
It said it was done in consultation with several federal agencies and by independent experts who reviewed thousands of pages of court decisions and other data.
The study, based on a review of more than 3,000 cases involving at least 20,000 children, found that “there is overwhelming evidence that a range of park-type activities are safe for children in the United States,” the report said.
“The safety of children and the safety of adults are interrelated,” said Jennifer A. Schatz, lead author of the report and the assistant director for research at the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy and Technology Project.
The most important factor in determining whether a park is safe for kids was the number of incidents the park had.
“It’s important to remember that, yes, there are parks that are not as safe for all kids, but it’s also important to realize that there are lots of places where you can go that are safe,” she said.
The U.K. has a history of the parks that have made it a magnet for children.
But it has had some recent controversies, including a wave of deaths at Disneyland and other Disney theme parks.
The ACLU report also said that some of the biggest attractions in the U, including roller coasters and amusement parks like Disney’s Polynesian Village, would probably not be safe for the average child, especially if they were not accompanied by an adult.
The number of cases in which children died at amusement parks or roller coaster rides was small, the report found.
The average number of deaths was five, and the average number was less than half the number that had occurred at the park, according to the report.
The American Civil Liberty Union has been lobbying for better park safety laws since 2012, when the company began implementing changes to its ride-and-ride system that would require a parent to be present for a child to ride the rides.
“In a world where every child is now in a child’s world, we can’t afford to let them be left out in the cold,” said Mark Potok, executive director of the ACLU Speech, Justice and Technology Program.
The company, which is owned by the family of former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power, said that in recent months, it has been making changes to the system to improve safety.
“As a result of our improvements to the ride-along system, we are seeing a reduction in the number and frequency of incidents in the parks, and we believe the number is continuing to decline,” a company spokeswoman said.
Disney (DIS), which has a long history of safety violations, said it is working with the U: Civil Rights Office to implement changes that will improve safety for children and families in the future.
“Disney has always understood the importance of a child-safe experience,” spokeswoman Michelle T. Martin said.
“We will continue to support the efforts of the Civil Rights and the Justice Department to continue to address the safety needs of our guests and staff.
Disney has implemented a new system for its park-and, ride-at-sea entertainment system to ensure that all guests are safely supervised and in a safe environment.”
