Disney Death 2

Sat Apr 15, 2006 2:49 am

i cant sleep so im readin yesterdays paper again. i just found an article about the death of a 49 year old German lady on Mission Space at Disney World.

"the 49 year old Geran was rushed to hospital after riding the G-force simulator which recreates the experiance of a rocket blast off.

She flt dizzy, sick and collapsed when she got off the £50m attraction where the trill seekers are subjected to twice the force of gravity

Last June a four year old boy died when the physical stress of the ride prooved to much for his previously unknown heart condition."


the ride is apparently now closed indefinatly

i dunno if someone else has already posted this or not, i cant see it anywhere, but i am a tad tired so i may of missed it.

(edit: i just relaied i posted this isn the wrong forum :roll: , could someone move it for me pleeease 'O:)'

Really? Again?
I went on that ride last year in june, a day before that boy died! I must say and if anyone else who has ridden it, it is pretty extreme, and even i was feeling a bit ill. When i first wenton though i thoought what if somthing does happen, there was no way to attract staff attention as your in a tight little pod!
if its in the nesw somwhere will someone give me a link iwould like to read more!

p.s. i've just been reading bbc news webisteand it says that a 16 yr old got taken to hospital in a critical state after riding that terror tower thing. Disney arnt doing to good!

There's no way I'd take a 4 yr old kid on mission space. I felt quite queasy after riding it.

surprised about the tower of terror incident though - it's not THAT extreme!

I went on this before it was officialy open, and it is very intence! And back then it was even more intence as it's been tammed down since.

It made me very dizzy for a while after and i can see why it would make someone ill. But to kill someone, it must have been their fault. Thye must have had some kind of heart condition or something as the ride itself is perfectly safe, and i will ride it again when i go back end of the year.

My advice, if you have ANY kind of medical condition (and this is a huge warning they give before you get on the ride) then dont ride it!

Nice video! :D

Went on Thunder Mountain earlier this year! The line was pretty huge, but it was well worth it.

Only complaint is i sat on the very back row, and when the train stopped it wasn't anywhere near the platform! I had to climb over some carriages to get off!

Disney have also just released their EPCOT version.

Link

I believe, Disney use a professional photographer to do their videos. But, it can be done with a normal video camera.
If I had the time and the access to decent angles I'd do one at Alton Towers.
