AUSTIN – The owners of Urban Air Adventure Park in Austin have been hit with a personal injury lawsuit seeking more than $1 million in damages.
Alleging gross negligence, Thien Nguyen filed suit against The Local Guys Cedar Park on July 10 in Travis County.
According to the lawsuit, on May 25 Nguyen was at Urban Air Adventure and ascending the stairs inside the facility when his head came into direct contact with a piece of equipment from the ceiling.
