A father designed and built a theme park for his disabled daughter

Gordon Hartman is a father that really cares for his disabled daughter. By building this theme park for his disabled daughter. He fills a gap that is for sure that many theme parks all over the world should fill. There are way too many theme parks that is just not accessible for disabled people. So, Gordon did something about that.

Hartman and his wife Maggie asked other parents where they could take their daughter – somewhere she would feel comfortable, and others would feel comfortable interacting with her. “We realised such an inclusive place didn’t exist,” says Hartman to BBC. So, back in 2007 he decided to build it.

“We wanted a theme park where everyone could do everything, where people with and without special needs could play,” Hartman says to BBC.

Morgans Wonderland for his disabled daughter

Morgan’s Wonderland, cost $34.000.000 and it opened in 2010. The rides at the theme park includes a fully-accessible Ferris wheel, adventure playground and miniature train. Visitors regularly tell Hartman it is the first time they’ve been able to experience such attractions.

Morgan have received over a million visitors from 67 countries and from all American states. Some of the staff also have disabilities and entrance is free to any guest with a disabled condition.

New water park and a Inspiration Island

This year, the park got a new water park and a inspiration island all accessible by people with wheelchairs. They decided to do the water park because of fewer people came during July month when the heat is at its worst. Parts of the new inspiration island attraction use warm water, which helps visitors with muscular problems. Waterproof motorised wheelchairs are provided, which run on compressed air rather than batteries. There is also an accessible river boat ride.

It is really impressive to see what Hartman have accomplished here. All humans should have the right to have fun and that also counts for disabled people also. Maybe other theme parks in the world should follow? Either people have disability from birth or get it because of accident or illness. There should be services for these people also. Much love and let’s vote for those politicians wanting to help people rather those destroying peoples hopes.
