I recently went to the Rock N' Roller Coaster in Orlando. It's a roller coaster much like Space Mountain. Hundreds of thousands of people ride it without any problems. I think that investigators will find that the girl had some medical condition and will then reopen the ride. It's just like the boy with the heart condition last year who died on the same ride in Orlando.

I agree. There is nothing inherently wrong with the atraction. Now had herfeet been chopped off... we might have a major lawsuit on our hands. Still... Condolences to the family!!!

It is hard sometimes to get caught up in the ridiculousness of the investigations and allegations about safety and forget that some poor family went on a dream vacation and lost a child on an attraction. I guess people even die at the happiest place on earth...

I've been on that coaster many times, it's probably about the same intensity as the old black hole at Alton Towers with a corkscrew and induction launch.

Unless someone got lose and hit the girl during the ride, I bet she had some kind of pre-existing condition.

Disney parks and rides seem to attract so many deaths from kids with illnesses... Maybe they should stop sending sick kids there?
