Summer is a time for fun in the Sun, and for many families this involves a trip or two to amusement parks or theme ride parks that boast the thrill rides that keeps the adrenaline pumping and is great fun. However, these types of vacations taken to these amusement or thrill parks have been proven dangerous, and even deadly in some cases.
Every year there are roller coaster crashes that result in people losing their life. In 2011, there were 1200 amusement ride accidents in the United States, with 4% of these people getting seriously injured or killed. A study by the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Ohio found that between 1990 and 2010, there were 92,000 children who were injured in amusement rides.
There have already been a few examples this year of when these rides go back. In Orlando’s Disney World, 120 passengers were stranded on the monorail in a ride that was not air conditioned. At San Diego’s SeaWorld, dozens were stuck on rides due to a power outage. At Six Flags Magic Mountain in California, four people were injured when the Ninja roller coaster derailed and dangled 20 feet in the air.
These are just a few examples of what happens when these roller coaster rides turn from fun to tragedy in the blink of an eye.
