Summary Judgment Affirmed for the Defense in Premises Liability Case

The case arose out of a slip and fall incident that occurred on a rainy day on steps leading to a water ride at the amusement park. The plaintiff, a patron of the park, was descending the steps when she slipped and sustained a serious injury to her wrist.
