    A crime or accident happens, and the crazies start coming out of the woodwork.

    I've always been afraid of amusement park rides. I can remember the last time I went on one, I was 11 and I made them stop because I was scared. I was probably having a panic attack and didn't have a name for it. My cousin kept telling me that I couldn't make them stop to let me off, oh yes I can and did. Sure it was the ferris wheel, but I was afraid. My son is chunking and I bet he wouldn't be afraid, but I don't think that I would let him ride amusement park rides either. I feel so sorry for this poor kid, and everyone who witnessed his death.

    I mean, what are the options to make sure the weight limit is enforced? If you look fat, you have to step on a scale for everyone to see? Oh hell no, I wouldn't do that AT ALL.

    This is how a woman died falling out of the Texas Giant roller coaster here in Texas. https://www.fox4news.com/news/woman-...as-giant-death

    I'm assuming the dude that was talking up the group to the right of him before the ride took off. At the end of the video when the other worker came up to him and said "Was he belted in" the guy said "all the lights were on". I'm assuming he adjusted it for him so that he could ride it since he was too big for it.

    Ive been waiting for this to happen. I would sue the shit out of them too.

    ORLANDO, Fla. — The parents of a 14-year-old boy who fell to his death from a 430-foot drop-tower ride in central Florida’s tourist district sued its owner, manufacturer and landlord on Monday, claiming they were negligent and failed to provide a safe amusement ride.

    The parents of Tyre Sampson said in the lawsuit filed in state court in Orlando that the defendants failed to warn their 6-foot-2-inch, 380-pound son about the risks of someone of his size going on the ride and didn’t provide an appropriate restraint system on the ride.

    Good.

    If you can't safely operate something reaching dangerous heights like this ride, then you don't need to be. Amusement parks, theme parks, they all have to meet safety standards. I worked at Busch Gardens as a teen/young adult, and they took safety hella seriously. They also had the money to do it. Other companies, they may just "let things slide" and perhaps not be as anal about safety as a large company like BEC was (Busch Entertainment Corp.) Now it's owned by another company, and I'm much less likely to enjoy the rides I grew up on for this very reason.

    Poor kid. And his parents had to see that.
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.
