Six Flags doesn't allow man without hands on roller coaster

NBC Dallas – A North Texas man said Six Flags Over Texas staff told him he couldn’t ride the park’s roller coasters because he does not have hands.

When he was just a 15 months, Michael Green was badly hurt in a house fire which left him without hands. Now at 26 years old, Green has learned to overcome many hurdles including rock climbing, zip-lining, tying his shoes and even typing at 30-40 words per minute. “There’s really nothing that I can’t do.” Green told NBC Dallas. But after waiting in line for over an hour for the Texas Giant at the Texas Six Flags, a park agent told Greene that he could not ride because he had no hands. Green has been on many rides at Six Flags before this incident.

“I always get stared at, ” he told the reporter. “But I never get discriminated [against.] With people telling me I can’t do something when they don’t know what I can do. I just want the chance to ride, like I [have] been doing.”

Michael Green said waited in line for an hour Friday only to be told he could not ride the Texas Giant.

“I’m very furious, sir,” he said. “This is the first time this has ever happened to me.”
