"The investigation by the Guardia Civil confirms that the death of Antonio David Vila Campos, 32, of the Canary Islands, was due to his particular physical characteristics (weighing more than 264 lbs. with a height of nearly 6 ft.) Antonio David was thrown from the car at the start of the first curve without the safety bar coming open. In addition, ride attendants
checked that his restraints were securely locked before starting the fatal trip. Investigative sources explained that because of his obesity, he might have been improperly positioned thus allowing him to be ejected by centrifugal force."

Google. It's your friend. Use it ;)
I don't know why it didn't cross my mind to Google it. I always do. I visited that Rides 911 accidents Web site and saw nothing, so I assumed it wasn't well documented.
Thanks, 'Moosh, er Google. ;)

Have a nice day.
Apart from the nice, suprising duelling encounter, I was not that impressed with the ride. The layout is nicely stretched, but I felt something was missing.
