If you were hoping to take a jump on the Sky Pad trampoline/bungee/VR experience on your next Royal Caribbean cruise we might have some bad news. The cruise line has temporarily closed the attraction following a passenger injury on board the Mariner of the Seas that sparked at $10 million lawsuit, according to the Miami Herald.
Casey Holladay, a passenger on board the Mariner of the Seas, was injured in February after the harness he was in on the Sky Pad failed. Holladay fell some 20 feet to the deck, breaking his pelvis and dislocating a shoulder.
In a statement to the Miami Herald, Owen Torres, corporate communications director for Royal Caribbean International, said, “As part of our commitment to safety, we are temporarily taking Sky Pad out of service on Mariner of the Seas and Independence of the Seas to conduct further inspection.”
TPG reached out to Royal Caribbean for an update on when or if the Sky Pad attractions would be reopened to passengers, however we did not receive an update at the time of publication.
