Legendary former NWA US Champion Magnum TA (Terry Allen) recently had a run in with the folks at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
According to WFTV9, Magnum tried to use his Segway at Disney world due to his mobility issues and was denied. Allen commented on being denied use of his Segway, “Well it was kind of a shock to be quite honest with you. I felt kind of like somebody poured a bucket of cold water over my head. It’s 2017. You can’t tell someone how to overcome their physical challenges. It’s not accpetable. I won’t accept it from anybody because I’ve been there and come from the ground up to where I am today,”
Disney issued a statement to the news station saying, “For safety reasons, we restrict the use of two-wheeled devices given the unique environment of our theme parks. There are various other options available to our Guests, such as the use of wheelchairs, four-wheeled electric scooters and an electric standing vehicle, which do not pose the same concerns.”
