CNN has posted the first ‘theme parks will kill you all’ for the summer stories that seem to come up this time every year despite the fact that you are far more likely to get injured driving to the park than you are on a ride at the park.
That being said, no one should go to Schlitterbahn water park in Kansas. The details that have come out after the child was decapitated on the Verruckt ride is proof to me that they shouldn’t be in business. Certainly I’ll never go there. I can’t believe that designing this ride consisted of them just winging it and essentially using their customers as guinea pigs on it.
The rest of the theme park world uses real engineers in designing these types of attractions, and that should be rewarded by the general public.
