Tropical Fun Zone sued after alleged Ball Blaster mishap


By Philip Gonzales | Aug 25, 2018

BEAVER — A visitor to the Tropical Fun Zone has filed a lawsuit against the indoor fun center after allegedly stepping on a ball from the Balladium Blaster Cannon and injuring his right leg.

Lou J. Oates III filed a complaint on July 23, in the Beaver County Court of Common Pleas, against Tropical Fun Zones LLC alleging that the indoor fun center operator breached its duty to keep its premises free and safe.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 16, 2016, he was injured when he stepped on one of the balls from the Balladium Ball Blaster Cannons in the laser tag area. 

He allegedly hurt his right leg and had to have surgery and physical therapy. 

The plaintiff holds Tropical Fun Zones LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly inspect and maintain the laser tag area, failed to properly supervise its employees and failed to give warning of the dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the court, plus costs and all other relief as may be just. He is represented by Benjamin W. Schweers and Anthony J. Bianco of Goldberg, Persky & White PC in Pittsburgh.
