The owners of Alton Towers are to be prosecuted over the Smiler rollercoaster crash, which left five people injured.
Two theme park visitors lost a leg and three others were seriously injured when their carriage collided with a stationary carriage on the ride in 2015.
Merlin Attractions Operation Ltd, which owns Alton Towers, will appear at North Staffordshire Justice Centre on April 22.
It will face a charge under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Neil Craig, head of operations for the Health and Safety Executive in the Midlands, said: “This was a serious incident with life-changing consequences for five people.
“We have conducted a very thorough investigation and consider that there is sufficient evidence and that it is in the public interest to bring a prosecution.”
Vicky Balch, 20, from Lancashire, had her leg amputed.
Leah Washington, 17, from Barnsley, had her leg amputated, while her 18-year-old boyfriend, Joe Pugh, shattered his knees.
Daniel Thorpe, 27, from Buxton, Derbyshire, was treated for a collapsed lung and lower leg injuries.
Another passenger, Chanda Chauhan, 49, from Wednesbury, had surgery after suffering internal injuries.
Alton Towers conducted a preliminary investigation and said human error caused the crash.
