Dozens hurt in Swedish theme park ride collapse
The BBC is reporting
that at least 36 people have been hurt, and at least 20 seriously, in a collapse of The Rainbow ride at Liseberg in Gothenburg, Sweden. [Update:
CNN now reports
the number of injured down to 18. Update 2:
The consensus now seems to be 20 injured.]
"The ride is composed of a spinning arm with a compartment at one end which carries passengers," the BBC reported. It's a Huss model, kinda like a large version of the "Camp Bus" at Camp Snoopy at Knott's Berry Farm. There appears to be a Huss Rainbow at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. Any others? [Update: Kentucky Kingdom's shut its Rainbow, pending the Swedish investigation.]
For a picture of the downed midway ride:
yea there is definitly one a kentucky kingdom, it has alot of down time, cause i live right by the park and everytime i go its usually down.
Five Huss Rainbows are in USA parks as follows:
I believe the Raindow at Great Escape was removed a couple of years back, actually.
