Eight people were treated and released when a bearing failed on the Texas Tornado swing ride at Six Flags Over Texas when the ride shut down. A park spokesperson said there was a mechanical failure with one of the bearings, and the operator followed standard procedure by stopping the ride. She said that an electronic monitoring system also recognized that there was a problem and shut down the ride at the same time.

Whats even more upsetting is that this is not the first time a Chance Swing ride failed during operation because of the bearing and injured guests.

Are we *infecting* the GP with some sort of park-enthusiast mentality? ;)
