Someone just died at our local theme park by falling off a roller coaster. =( This is the description of the ride:
Ride of Steel
One of the tallest coasters east of the Mississippi, climbing approximately 208 feet and reaching speeds in excess of 70 mph. Must be 54″ or taller. Guests who are 76″ and above or with certain body
proportions may not be able to ride.
the station house line.
What do you think happened? Could this be a freak accident or was this person fooling around on the ride somehow?
EDIT: The man was an Iraq war veteran who had lost his legs in the war.
