Alicante Provincial Court has cleared Benidorm’s Terra Mitica park of any wrong-doing after an
Icelandic teenager died in July 2014, when his safety harness came undone whilst he was riding the Inferno rollercoaster.
The 18-year-old was on holiday in the Torrevieja area with his family, and they had travelled to the theme park for a day out when tragedy struck when he was doing the ride with his father and brother.
A Benidorm court had already dismissed the case last year, with the Provincial Court upholding the verdict last month, according to a report in the ABC newspaper. Both
courts said that there were no design defects with the ride and that health and safety standards were properly upheld, and that the ride manufacturer had taken further measures after the accident that improved the safety harness even safer.
It was the first death at Terra Mitica since it opened for business in 2000.
