Flags Roller Coaster Malfunctions incident
Amusement park thrill rides are supposed to feel dangerous without ever actually being dangerous. Unfortunately, while rare, it is sometimes true that things can go wrong and people can be actually hurt. Several people suffered injuries last night in a roller coaster incident at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, leading to five people being hospitalized.
Six Flags is America’s largest theme park and with that title, comes accidents. In the last ten years, the accidents haven’t been as severe as before. But they definitely haven’t stopped altogether.
The ride was shut down following the injuries, which happened shortly before the park closed at 8 p.m. Six Flags has not said what caused the malfunction, but did say that the ride remains closed for inspection.
