Do you think that this information should have been released into the public domain ? Is it merely a PR stunt designed to stimulate interest ? and Would this kind of report make you less or more confident about riding a coaster ?
Thorpe Park officials claim it's in the public interest to release such information.
Here's the link :
I first became aware of this, about 10 years ago, the summer my oldest boy Bill Jr. died. You know that carnival that comes to town every year? Well this year it came with a ride called the Mixer. The man said "Keep your head and arms inside the mixer at all times." But Bill Jr., he was a daredevil (just like his old man). He was leaning out saying, "Hey everybody! Look at me, look at me!" POW! He was decapitated. They found his head over by the snowcone concession.
Wow. I've wanted to use that for so long. Pity only one person will probably get it without having to resort to google-fu.
Weird Al also did a song about a decapitation on an amusement ride.
No matter how hard I try I can't help but read that part of your post in Ben Stiller's voice. ;>)
Excited by the ride though. That first inversion looks like fun.
