8/23/2003 - Jimmy Neutron's Brainwasher - Submitted by Name Withheld on 8/25/2003
The round car carrying one adult and three children broke off the steel arm and crashed to the ground from a height of around five feet. The three children were taken to hospital, one of those being air-lifted, with undisclosed injuries. However, blood was plainly visible on the face of one child and the arms/torso of another. The adult is complaining of back injuries. [Later reports indicated that none of the injuries was serious.--Editor]9/3/2001 - Silver Streak - Submitted by Name Withheld on 1/10/2002
A small child trying to get out of her seat at Silver Streak, falls and lands on her face. She fractures her nose. [Verified by supporting document - Ed.]5/5/2001 - Flavourator - Submitted by Name Withheld on 1/10/2002
A man rides the Flavourator with his son (I'd guess about age 10) and Daughter (Age 5?) and he spins the bucket SO fast that his son actually fly's out of the bucket and bounces off the fence, and almost rolls under the ride. I pressed the emergency stop as soon as I saw the child being to move, but the "E-stop" only cuts the power, and has no breaking effect on the ride. So I left the booth and tried to stop the ride before he rolled under. He suffered a broken shoulder and a cut requiring about 10 stitches on the side of his head.

Sometime during the 2001 season. A child looked behind as the bars were coming up and the bar hit him above his eye, cutting him, and causing his eye to swell shut. [Verified by supporting document - Ed.]
