I wonder how she got that gash? I do not recall Tornado's having jagged pieces of pastic hanging out to get you.
This is the same Jim Taylor from SFoG, right? Oh well, "our" loss is the company's gain, that guy (kid, LOL) is *da bomb*.
My best GUESS right now is she came off the raft and hit her head on the very bottom seam in the funnel. :-/

As for the Tornado thing...It does seem weird that something like that would happen. I've been on 6 or 8 of them around the country and have never seen or encountered anyone having problems. I haven't been on the SFGAm one yet though. Does it have the "stop slats" part of the way up the funnel to keep you from going to far up the sides?
It's terrible the girl was hurt, but I don't get the comment from the other kid's mom about how lucky they were to be alive because the drop is so huge. The drop didn't get any larger after they got in line for the ride. If she was concerned about it, she shouldn't have let the kids ride.
They complain about my use of Grammar, This is supposedly in print?
Nerological Damage? OMG, Here we go with the lawsuits.
"They are so lucky to be even alive. It is a huge drop," said Lovelace.
It was awful. It was just awful. And, um, and the fact that she had no memory," said Sharon Vercellotti.
Wow, 15 seconds max of unconciouness.
Lovelace and Vercellotti say hospital officials told them that more than half a dozen kids have been treated at the emergency room because of injuries sustained on the Tornado. They are calling for it to be shutdown
Hearsay, However just about any major ride or slide has it's share of inccidents, Usually rider error. And the park vollentaraly shut the ride down so whats with the added drama?
Chuck, about sick of crappy worst case scenario news articles. What about GIRL HAPPY TO BE OK AFTER INCCIDENT ON TORNADO SLIDE? Therefore not ASS/U/ME'ing blame in the title?
