The story was updated later. The employee received stitches and was sent home.

The ride is a small powered figure eight spinning coaster.

Ah. See I was trying to figure out how he got pinned under a Slingshot, the ride that launches you up into the air and then posts videos to YouTube of people crying for their mommy or passing out.

But then again, what do I know?

Not cool. I get it, and totally agree, but...not cool.

My family’s from the tri-state area, Camden Park was my home park when I was a kid, and I’m totally incensed!

Also- he’s 100% correct.
