Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition, et al v. Krasner Amusement Co., 1:15-cv-00925-RPM

Issues

In August of 2014, Domino Service Dogs, several individuals who utilize service dogs and their associates visited Lakeside Amusement Park for the purpose of enjoying the park and training the dogs in a new environment. After purchasing tickets, they were prevented from boarding one of the attractions available at Lakesid. When the guests began explaining their rights tto use their dogs, Lakeside Amusement Park staff called the Town of Lakeside Police Department, who arrived and began to harass and threaten these individuals.

Status

On April 30, 2015, the Complaint was filed in United States District Court of Colorado against Krasner Amusement Company, the Town of Lakeside, Colorado and the Town of Lakeside, Colorado Police Department.  A video of this incident is available at this link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-nfbhsB4FA&feature=em-upload_owner). A text version of the media release can be found at this link (http://ccdconline.org/press_release/april-30-2015/lakeside-amusement-par...). The case has now settled with both defendants. The owners of the park will provide increased awareness regarding service animals and allow service animals to be used for certain rides in the park. In addition, the owners of the park will make changes to the park to make it more accessible for people with disabilities.
