ARLINGTON, Texas -- A man from North Texas claims Six Flags over Texas in Arlington is discriminating against him because he has no hands.
Michael Green lost his hands in a house fire when he was 15 months old. Green says since then, he has learned to drive, type, and rock climb. But when he tried to ride the Texas Giant roller coaster, park attendants said he couldn't because he has no hands. He went to guest relations to complain but was told his disability keeps him from going on any of the parks' rides.
"I thought I was normal, and then I get treated like I am not," Green said. "Like I'm an outsider again. And that's the worst feeling in the world, to feel like an outsider."
The park says guests with disabilities are prohibited from some rides for their safety and well being
