Another very sad loss yesterday, this one on Rock n' Roller Coaster:

France: Teenager Dies on Disneyland Ride
By CRAIG S. SMITH
Published: June 27, 2007


The police were investigating the death of a 14-year-old Spanish girl on the fast Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster ride at the Disneyland just outside Paris. A prosecutor said the death appeared to be a result of a pre-existing medical condition rather than a ride malfunction

Hi all,

Wasn't there a similar incident on Walt Disney World's version at Disney-MGM Stduios a while ago? I suspect this one could be down to another previously undetected heart condition, but it's best not to speculate really at this stage. Another very sad event in the theme park world none the less; let's hope the rest of this season is more positive.

That's terrible. I'm sorry to hear :(

My guess is she had a heart problem or some medical condition she wasn't aware of, but it's just a shot in the dark.

Well judging from the article it had nothing to do with the ride malfunctioning.

^Which is why I guessed it was a medical condition she was unaware of.




Also, it said she's spanish, maybe it's like the case of the woman who died on Goliath at SFMM because she was from france and didn't understand the warning about medical conditions? I mean, sure those things are common knowledge to us coaster enthusiasts(and most of the common sensed general public) but for first time riders go figure.

^Very true. I'm sure we'll hear way more about this. I'm gonna have to go with you on that, and say it may have been a misreading of the warning signs.

Seems like Amusement Park accidents are starting to become more and more common nowadays.

^Which could turn out very bad for the industries, and manufacturers of the rides. :(

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

^ Yeah, and even though this unfortunate incident had nothing to do with ride operations, all some people will hear is "DEATH ON RIDE" and give the industry another black eye.
