A number of parents intend on filing a class-action discrimination lawsuit against a Tel Aviv amusement park after the mother of a child afflicted with physical and mental disabilities was denied permission to board a roller coaster over the Passover holiday, Army Radio reported on Monday.

The case has attracted the attention of Meretz MK Ilan Gilon, who said that he would refer the matter to the state agency responsible for ensuring equal rights to those with disabilities.

A spokesperson for the Luna Park amusement complex, which is located in north Tel Aviv, told Army Radio that management had little choice but to refuse the child since the roller coaster is classified as “extreme.” The mother of the child in question told Army Radio that the child had gotten on the roller coaster in the past.
