Schlitterbahn looking for way forward after tragic accident

Schlitterbahn looking for way forward after tragic accident | Texas Coast Living | Scoop.it

For Schlitterbahn, based just outside of San Antonio in New Braunfels, recovering from a tragedy as horrific as Caleb Thomas Schwab’s death is tricky business, according to amusement park safety experts, theme park analysts and crisis communications specialists.

 

Here at Schlitterbahn we continue to pray and keep in our thoughts everyone impacted by the tragic events on Sunday and we are keeping the Schwab family in our prayers,” company spokeswoman Winter Prosapio said in a statement on the company’s website.

 

Schlitterbahn will also need to take extra steps to convince the public that it’s doing everything it can to shore up safety protocols, crisis communications specialists said.

 

“They need to go into this with a mindset that they need to make sure, themselves, that that ride is safe, and they need to be able to reassure the public, legislators, regulators and insurers,” said Bob Chlopak, founding partner of Washington, D.C.-based CLS Strategies, a public relations firm that specializes in crisis communications.

Michael Stuart's insight:

 “You’re more likely to fall out of bed and crack your skull,” said Martin Lewinson, an associate business management professor at Farmingdale State College in New York and an expert on the theme park industry.

This is why my wife and I split up the kids and take separate family vacations | Texas Coast Living | Scoop.it

My daughter pleaded that she wanted “to see a real beach”, apparently enthusiastic no more for the murky, brown waves rolling with sediment in Port Aransas, Texas, where she had spent much of her childhood.

 

Now, about to turn 13, she had something bigger in mind. “Like this,” she said holding up her tablet and scrolling through a series of photos of what appeared to be the Virgin Islands.
