News story translated:
Haßloch - Drama at the amusement park: An eleven year old girl came on Friday morning at the Holiday Park in Haßloch (Kreis Bad Durkheim) died.

Police said that the girl against 11.39 clock in the Carousel "Spinning Barrels" from Hesse: I (to German rotating barrels) suffered such severe head injuries that the paramedics could only determine the child's death.

Apparently, the eleven year old was pounced on a rotating platform and was then dragged from the ride. The mother, who had visited the park with her daughter, had to watch all this!

According to police, she suffered a shock, is supervised by emergency chaplains.

The Frankenthal prosecutor determined yet how it could come exactly to the tragic accident. The Holiday Park will still be open regularly according to a spokeswoman.


Well, the headline sais it all. Today at 11:39am In the Holiday Park in germany died a girl (11) on the flat ride "spinning barrels". She got stuck in one of the four "plates" that were moving. How this could happen is not clear until now. my thoughts are with the family :( thats horrible..
The sources are in german... Sorry for the bad english.

^Oh that's terrible to hear. I too wonder how this happened. I guess we'll have to wait.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Sorry to hear that, my thoughts are with the victim's family and Holiday Park.

Does anyone know who the manufacturer of this ride is?

Well...the little girl who died was my Daughter. I'm being advised to keep silent online about the incident. But I know exactly how it happened and I will be posting the entire story in due time....

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

Looks like Expedition Geforce will finally receive a proper station for next season!

Or at least a roof. It's a bit hard to speculate what it actually means, but knowing Plopsa I'm sure it will be a proper themed station.

It is decided... For next year, we will give our award winning G Force coaster a roof in the entrance station :)
