Guest Dies After Riding Star Tours at Walt Disney World

A 67 year old man, Ralph Lyles of Memphis, TN, rode Star Tours last week and unfortunately passed away from heart issues after riding Star Tours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. ┬áThe ride is a thrill ride with various warnings for guests with certain conditions or concerns for their safety on the attraction. ┬áThe medical examiner appears to believe that the condition was pre-existing and the attraction aggravated the condition, resulting in the complications that lead to his death. Our hearts go out to the family as they deal with this difficult time.
