^Totally, a lot of manufacturers are gonna deal with a bunch of crap this year, even if the death wasn't cause by the ride itself.

^Why do I see the media declaring all amusement rides unsafe? Surprisingly, the media has been pretty good with dealing with all the accidents this year.(with the exception of FOX saying something that the GP could will take that Giant Drop is unsafe)

This is another tragic accident, and best wishes to her family in this horrible time. It probably is due to a heart problem, but many, including the media, could take this that rides are too intense.

OMG!!! I was just on this 2 weeks ago!!! I would have freaked out if I was on the same train as the poor girl! I feel so sorry for her friends who were with her. Something no one wants to see they're friends like. :(

I think it's too early in the season to jump to that. Last year we had the same discussion and someone pulled some stats showing there's been a marked decrease in incidents. But yeah, it isn't good.

My thoughts and prayers go to her family.

Well, that is one good point. I have been wondering about the statistics of ride accidents. and it's nice to know that amusement park accidents have gone down. I feel horrible for the girl and her family. It is a tragic thing to lose someone you love. My condolences to her family.

Dammit, vekoma is starting to lose their safety record! (Yes they are rough, but in a ratio of instalations to deaths, vekoma has a pretty shiny record, these rock n rollercoaster deaths are starting to scuff that.)


But I am sorry for the girl and my best wishes go to her family.

Damn, another one! What's going on here?
Or is it just that because we have a forum to discuss park incidents, they seem more common than they actually are?
I would go with the theory, like someone said earlier, that the girl had a pre-existing medical condition that should have prevented her from riding. Even with the language problem, many people don't take these warnings seriously when they know that they have some medical problem. It could have even been something she had that was undiagnosed- a seizure disorder, or any number of neurological conditions.
At any rate, very sad.
