The Euthanasia Coaster gets a dark short film!

Tue Feb 09, 2016 1:48 am

Back in 2010 Julijonas Urbonas drew up a concept designed to kill passengers that ride, a means to euthanize individuals who wished to end their lives be it because of terminal illness or whatever.

Now Glen Paton over at Vimeo has created this dark but very interesting short film! Note it is quite dark and touches on a taboo subject.

Nice to see the actor got to ride a B&M. Could you imagine if they made him film on a vekoma SLC? he would have probably sued the person behind the making of the video :lol

In all seriousness I am confused as to what even made him think of this...
Ride count since the beginning of 2015: 2104!
Ride count 2020: 331!
Cred count: 117!

Glenn kindly responded to my question about the coaster he used for this short film.

Its Superman: La Atracción de Acero in Madrid, Spain.

I don't think he'll need to act if he's on an SLC :lol

this film does raise a few questions I had not considered, who is the member of staff who has to take the bodies out of the train afterwards, that is a pretty messed up job, would you want to go on a train, you dying with a group of other people, or would it be a single car coaster? going on this coaster alone, seems at least to me, a thousand times better than going as part of a group, but then im anti-social, so why dying as part of a group, when thats not how ive lived my life.

Staff are also going to have to clean the train, cos no way people dont die without bowel evacuation at some point during the ride.
