Holiday World in GQ-in depth article about accident

Friday, May 27, 2005 4:03 PM
If this has already been discussed, I can't find it anywhere and I did a search and also looked throught the last three pages of forums.

Anyway, I was quite shocked to see an article about what I thought was just two people who fell in love riding roller coasters turn out to be an article about the HW accident. There are several on-ride photos (Nitro, Flight of Fear, and Villian) of the couple that puts a human element to the story. I think it's much easier to get angry at someone–as many did–when you don't have the pictures to go along with the story. I felt the article was fair to all sides and wasn't one of those "Roller Coasters are dangerous" articles. I'm sorry to bring this up when HW has everyone on the edge of their seats waiting for the big announcement, but I think it's an article everyone should read.

GQ? The style magazine?

I searched through GQ (the style magazine) and couldn't find the article.

Anyone know if it's online?

It's in the Bratt Pitt issue, which should be on newstands now (I read it at my local library).

BTW, I don't know if this has been discussed here yet, but the local news ran a brief story a week or two ago reporting that HW is now being sued by the family of the victim(not really sure if that's the appropriate word). I know this is a touchy subject, and in no way intend to bring up any hurtful arguments about it, but I sure hope HW comes through ok with minimal damage from the costs they are sure to endure in the future from this.

I believe it was discussed here. I can't seem to find the thread, but I remember reading about it.
