  1. I'm surprised there was no elevator. You were lucky to go on that crazy ride. I'll stay on water flume and roller coasters, bumper cars and other rides.

  2. The rides designer had no engineering qualifications or experience! A child is now dead because of this thing.🤦🏼‍♀️

  3. All wicked and detestable humans that are harming children, casually, as if they do not matter, they do not feel anything, they do not count, or are just here for a corrupted human's personal use and gain…

    Know…
    That whether you believe, that there is
    A CREATOR or not…
    It is detestable to sacrifice any and all children for any cause…
    And whether you believe in A CREATOR or not
    Everytime… you offend, exploit, force or manipulate a child to work for you (to profit or not, against their will), kidnap (for wicked purposes), harm (out of hatred, for sick pleasure, or out of lack of self-discipline), assault, and kill a child, you are directly offending
    OUR ALMIGHTY OMNICREATOR, with each one (in various, if not all ways)!!!!!!!

    To offend OUR OMNICREATOR, with this kind of offense…
    creates an inexcusable, inescapable, undeniable place, all of your very own in the spiritual realm…
    This is a place where those who offend and leave this world for this very reason… are subjected to that which they have put out to others, forced to see things the way that they, unjustifiably, did others…

    A response/reply/comment is not necessary, fore, this is only a warning about your ways…
    You must repent, turn back from your ways now and do not return to commiting these abominable and detestable offenses with anyone or thing any longer…

    The time is among us!

  4. All these kids on here defending the ride after someone dies, saying it was just the strap, the weight, his fault (not), whatever. When you grow up and become an adult, you realize that’s not how life works. Someone dies and that’s usually the end of the ride or the theme park, because no one should have died. If someone does, it is usually because the park owners were negligent and did not care about the safety of people they took money from. They basically ignored people if they got hurt or complained about straps coming off—because the owners only cared about keeping their silly Hot Wheels track. Any other professional theme park would have paid attention long before a child died. These people were completely uneducated as to roller coasters—they built little water slides. They broke every rule of roller coaster safety, someone said. Engineers told them it was flawed and they were like little kids with Hot Wheels tracks—well, it was okay that time so scientists are wrong. Duh—no. We have eliminated metal gearshifts in cars that have impaled people in a crash, and yet these idiots put a series of metal rings in front of your neck in a car going 70 mph. If it still existed, are you really sure you would ride it again, knowing it could very well take your head off if the raft simply flew upwards because someone else shifted their weight? Are you sure? You would really take that chance of decapitating yourself? If it was your mom or your dad or your brother, you would not be saying, “oh well it’s okay it was just the strap or it was his fault or oh well.” But you will learn these things in life. If someone hurts you, or renders you disabled for the rest of your life, you will definitely be screaming, that “someone else should have done something before I got hurt”! Assuming you’re still alive to say it. Rip poor Caleb.

  5. The same people who first built it thinking it was ok are the same idiots who "fixed" it? Ok. I'm next on the ride!

  6. well quite clearly something was wrong because i'm pretty sure 12 year olds don't get decapitated here and there for no reason
