larrygator Posted April 18, 2012 Share Posted April 18, 2012 (edited) From this article it is not clear exactly what happened. Did part of the track collapse on to a lower track which resulted in two drivers crashing into the debris? Not a good 12 months for Magical Midway http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-04-18/news/os-go-kart-accident-orlando-20120417_1_magical-midway-starflyer-track Girl's leg slashed after extreme go-kart track collapses on I-Drive 7:48 a.m. EST, April 18, 2012|Susan Jacobson, Orlando Sentinel An 11-year-old girl was taken to a hospital Tuesday after a portion of "extreme go-kart tracks" collapsed at Magical Midway on International Drive. Two go-karts crashed during the 7:45 p.m. collapse, causing the child to suffer a cut on her leg, said John Mulhall, an Orange County Fire Rescue spokesman. She was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando.

Phillips Hospital, authorities said. Magical Midway's website invites customers to ride its "fast tracks as you whip around corkscrew turns and feel the jolts at high speeds." They are advertised as "extreme go-kart tracks." Edited April 18, 2012 by larrygator Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
