Hmm, good thing she didn't spill coffee on her crotch. ;-)
What I want to know is WHAT the heck was she doing with her hands during launch? :-)
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 8:01 AM
Tina - the force of the launch threw her arms back off of the lap bar don'tcha know :D

Especially with both wrists being broken. She would have lost her hands on TTD.

"Ms Seiga said the force of the ride was so strong it peeled Amelia's hands off the guard rail and bent her wrists back."
Guard rail? :-O
"She is now asking for the ride's height restriction to be raised to prevent it happening to other children."
Ummm, she was TWELVE...what *height restriction* are they going to put ON the ride that would prevent anyone under 12 from riding?
Jimvy, I'd bet your wrists are STRONG... :)

hmmm this one sounds a bit fishy, you would think we would have heard a similar incident by now on any other launch coasters. doesn't make any sense to me, but what do i know...

*blush* Who's been talking Bill?
This reminds me of the time my arms were violently ripped from my body on Thunderlooper ;)

Sounds like a scam to me.....

Apparently, the safest place for a 12-year old to be these days is Neverland.
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 12:00 PM
She's a female, of course she'd be safe at Neverland.
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 12:32 PM
It does sound BS to me. I mean what the heck were her wrists made out of? Saltines? What a wuss.
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 12:35 PM
I'm not saying *anything* about Tina having strong wrists... :-X ;)
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 12:38 PM
Well you know better than anyone else. ;-)
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 1:14 PM
If that were the case, someone would have probably put her wrists in their chowder by now.
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 1:18 PM
So Tina, should we be calling you coasterqueenRSI from now on?
Tuesday, June 14, 2005 11:08 PM
Saltines..... LOL! ;)

You'll have to submit an affadavit verifying that you take steroids in order to be let on the ride.

So even if the height requirement is not enough to protect someone, or even an age requirement, maybe a strong wrist test is needed here (stop smiling boys ). I was thinking if you got more than 2 inches of slack in a wrist restraint, you can't ride :)
