A day out at the amusement park is one of my favorite things! I know I’m not alone, because anytime I go to a park, it is absolutely packed!
Some people just like to walk around and check out the food. Some people like to play the games or see the shows. Others are into the smaller rides or just watching their kids have fun.
Then there are those of us that live for the roller coasters. I love a good roller coaster! The faster the better.
Thankfully, I’ve always had great experiences at the parks I have visited, but there are some who aren’t so lucky.
Unfortunately, accidents happen and people are killed on rides like this quite often. They say there is only a 1 in 300 million chance of a roller coaster accident killing you. Sometimes the reason is mechanical, sometimes it’s the computer that runs it all that malfunctions, and sometimes the person running the ride makes a fatal error.
Accidents and fatalities have happened all over the world. Let’s take a look at some of the worst examples of roller coaster tragedies from around the globe.
