Three injured in Cedar Point roller coaster accident

12:09 PM, May 27, 2007


Cedar Point officials say one of the coaster's trains was ending its ride, when it rolled into a stopped train at the loading station. Three people were taken to the first aid center. Two were treated and released. The third passenger was transported to an area hospital for an asthma condition. The Magnum was back open as of Sunday. In Dayton, Ohio, another three people were injured on a kids' ride at RiverBlast. Witnesses say the ride jolted forward as children were exiting, dragging some along in a circle until the ride was shut off. A 6-year-old girl and a 10-year-old girl were taken by ambulance to Children's Medical Center of Dayton, where they were treated for cuts and abrasions. Another 1-year-old was brought to the hospital by a parent.

I caught this cool shot of Maverick flying into it's brake run. Watching the webcams is really sad and pathetic, but fun


EDIT: Wow, there are actually some people riding Snake River Falls


EDIT 2: Cool shot of Maverick on the 95 degree drop

When I was working there in 1999 (not on that ride however) the E-Stop was hit and so the train at the start of the lift stopped however the train coming into the station blew right through the station and headed up the lift missing rearending the train on the lift by less than a foot.

Even though this incident was pretty small, I bet it will stay closed for at least a week, maybe more. They have to investigate and find out why it did this, and when they do, who knows what all they'll have to do to fix it, unless it was just human error.
