I personally know a Deaf person (capital "D", by the way), and I am sure she will be thrilled with this new event. She tells me that the Deaf community is immensely full of pride, and this event provides a great opportunity to share that pride. Plus, I can only imagine that visiting a theme park without the ability to hear can make the experience far more difficult, so I'm interested to see the accommodations that the park provides. I will try to attend this event if I can, because I am learning American Sign Language, and this seems like a fantastic chance for anybody to interact with the Deaf community.

I will say- the last line of the event's description is a little humorous. How exactly do they plan for a Deaf person to call the park? :p

There are phones made specifically for hearing-impaired people. I've seen some that display text so the caller can easily communicate with the person they are trying to reach.
