I have developed a morbid fascination with reports of malfunctions and injuries at theme parks. It started with a few well-written summaries of Disney deaths but it's developed to other parks thanks to Wikipedia. How else would I learn that twelve Disney guests and one 'Cast Member' have died, or that "on May 11, 1984, eight teenagers burned to death in the Haunted Castle at Six Flags Great Adventure attraction". Well, it would be a haunted castle, if it weren't eleven trailers temporarily joined together. Anyway, read: 'Incidents at Disney parks', and the gripping 'Incidents at Six Flags parks'.

The good news, I guess, is that the vast majority of the deaths seem to be from people doing stupid stuff; jumping off the rides, going backstage to retrieve stuff they've dropped and getting run over by the ride, trying to swap carriages in the middle of a tunnel, that sort of thing.


hahaha, shame on that fat man. TOTALLY sassed.
