    "Excuse me. Is it dangerous to get behind those fences?"

    "No, sir. We just had a lot of fence material left over after construction. We had to put it somewhere. Same thing with the signs."
  4. Idiot.

    Feel sorry for the family mind.

    Sometimes, fences and warning signs are actually there for a reason. I feel sorry for that boy's family, but it was his own stupidity and ignorance that killed him.

    I believe so. He was yet another Darwin Award candidate.
  8. What happened to the grounds keeper?
  9. The exact same thing.

    I think he went to retrieve a hat or something.
  10. :rollno: Probably another Johnny Knoxville wannabe :help:

    I like the way the news makes it sound like the ride is dangerous and to blame. You can't make everything in life idiot proof!!

    That's what happens when you ignore warning signs that clearly post danger and jump fences...

    It sucks that he lost his head, but he should not have been there.

    I guess Batman is getting tough on crime.
  16. That's what I mean! The ride is functioning perfectly. You build an 80mph roller coaster, you can't step out in front of it :D Just like dangerous manufacturing equipment, there are probably lockout/tag out procedures that make working around it perfectly safe. If you jump over 2 fences to climb on it, you might get hurt!! It's sort of like my AWD nitro RC car. It's fast as hell. When I crash it into my ankle, I'm the only one to blame!! :p
  17. Poor guy... I heard he was on his way to becoming a Masters Champ...

    A Cinderella story that will never happen :(

    There was a kid that got his arm cut off (or badly broken) on the Viper at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, IL. You know how they say "keep your arms and legs inside the car at all times"? They mean it!

    I feel really badly for the family. Their loss is pretty bad. Having to explain that they lost their son to an act of dumbassery of gargantuan proportions is really bad, too.
