Researchers from the Tennessee Department of Health recently conducted a survey to find out whether visitors became sick after visiting CLIMB Works, WVLT News reported. Investigators sent out questionnaires to 2,901 people who booked zip line tours at the attraction, and 808 replied.
Of the responses, 548 reported illnesses. The participants said they experienced symptoms, such as vomiting and diarrhea, which are all associated with gastrointestinal illness.
CLIMB Works launched its own investigation earlier this month after 80 to 100 people called the business to report symptoms of gastrointestinal illness after visiting the site, according to WVLT News. Several even posted on the company’s Facebook page about their illnesses.
