Does anyone know if this was Cedar Point? I don't really know anyother amusement parks in Sandusky that aren't in Cedar Point.
Edit: Now I remember. The article says after riding a coaster. There have been a few deaths over the years, I believe one last year, of heart attacks and so on.
The boy had a heart condition, if I remember correctly- The park warns you to not ride if you have heart conditions.
Up to date, there have been no fatalities at Cedar Point due to coaster malfunction or employee error.

Not sure how many times Jeff has to say it but people have never ever died as a direct result of a ride at CP. It has always been due to unknown chronic health conditions.

But, if the kid got loose and jumped out of the train, then I guess it's possible. Do you have the exact address for where you read it?
Many people have died after riding Cedar Point rides, but never because of any kind of mechanical failure or human error.
Smoking Marijuana isn't a bad thing or even a good one, like everything else, its what you make of it.

I worked on the Giant Wheel in 1994-1995. If I remember correctly, someone died on the Wildcat during the summer of 1994. I believe it was a band member from a HS in Michigan and he had an undiagnosed heart condition.

funny this came up when it did. I was having a discussion with my girlfriend about ride safety (she wont ride any ride because they are unsafe) she was saying shes sure accidents happen all the time but the parks some how magically cover it up. pay the families off to keep quite and some how to hundreds of park guests and employes never hear or see it and/or keep quite about it. that is a silly idea if you ask me.

Have you tried replacing her foil hat with a wax paper one while she sleeps to see if she notices?
That's what happens every time a ride "breaks down" or is "down for wind".
It's not magic...they're scraping up the body parts.
The parts are then fed to the tigers from Jungle Larry's show, which are kept in the basement of the Good Time Theater.
She's absolutely right.

No trees were harmed in the sending of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
Wild Cat actually had two similar fatalities that happend a couple of seasons apart. Both were just very tragic pre-existing heart condition situations but the coincidence of them both happening during or immediately at the end of that particular ride was very surreal.
