Well we can only hope that people will not get injured by hitting their head or tailbone as the have in the past!
She literally thought she was going to die... while this was not uncommon for her... I personally didn’t feel a shred of fear. Nor did I feel unsafe in anyway. I guess the problem is that soo many f us feel that because we are at a theme park, we are safe! Especially if it is a big name park like Disney or Universal.
Sadly these days we are hearing about accidents a lot more often. (This doesn’t mean they are happening more often... just that we are hearing about them now because somehow this is national new...) Statistically speaking a coaster must be safer than driving right? And even ripsaw falls must be safer than driving or hanging a picture frame...
Where am I going with this? Heck I don't know. I always assumed it was safe, even though I felt a little on the edge of my seat. The idea of people hitting their heads (on what by the way) or hurting their tailbones would have never crossed my mind.
A lap bar on a flume ride? What will they think of next???
When did they do this work? Did it get closed or did they just take a few boats of at a tine?
Sure, it is a horrible mental image, but has there ever been a case of a boat flipping on a theme park flume ride? I can't remember one. Anyone with a link to a case care to post one?
