A teenage girl went to the Six Flags in Kentucky and one of the rides severed both legs above the ankle. She was taken to a hospital and and her condition is unknown. The ride has been shut down in order to investigate the cause of the accident. The remainder of the park is still open to the public, though.

That poor girl!

That is sad and very scary, I loved that ride but after hearing that I am afraid of it now.

I hear after seeing the 3rd final destination movie alot of people are afraid of roller coasters which is understandable because something like that is totally capable of happening. It seems every year more and more accidents are happening at theme parks and people are getting afraid to ride any of the rides because they know there is always a chance of something going wrong.

They shut down the Tower of Doom at Elitchs here. It's a similar ride to the one in Kentucky, and I believe they were made by the same company. Fine by me, I hated those rides anyway!

I refuse to go to an amusement park and ride the roller coasters due to Final Destination 3. Some of those rides just seem VERY unsafe. They all scare me.

I'm addicted to roller coasters so even Final Destination 3 won't stop me.

This gave me chills because I have rode that same ride many many times, plus a similar one at Cedar Point. I am a roller coaster enthusiast, so it would take a lot more than seeing a movie to stop me from riding them. Although for the longest time when I was about 12-13 years old I wouldnt ride wooden coasters b/c of this old cheesy movie called "Death at Oceanview Park".
