Accident at Six Flags Over Texas injures seven
Theme Park Insider reader Robert O sends word of an accident at Six Flags Over Texas
The seats on the Texas Tornado swing ride came to a sudden stop as the ride was ended, injuring seven people. Six were treated at the park, but one woman went to the hospital with back injuries.
Park officials have closed the ride pending an inspection and repair. [Changed to update the number of injured to seven, according to a park press release.]
Wow! What is with all these accidents lately?
This indeed did happen Sunday, They closed that part off and I witnessed some of the commotion. From what was being said it was a ride malfunction, the ride began to jolt and the operator stopeed it because of the jolting.
let me guess, a lawsuit is gonna come from the woman who suffered back injuries.
If it was the park's fault, and she suffered real damage as a result, why not?
Just why are so many people getting injured lately in the parks? I mean there was the thing at Cypress Garderns, Tower of Terror, Typhoon Lagoon, Peter Pan's Flight, and Mission Space. I don't want to blame anybody, but what the heck is going on now?
Websites are tracking this stuff now, so every incident is now making the news. I remember, when I worked at Disney World, one nasty incident at Pirates which sent several people to the ER, including one with serious head and neck injuries, that never made the news.
