    Boy Killed at Six Flags (Atlanta)

    In case your kids ever ask what the "Do Not Enter" signs mean.

    No details, but pretty gruesome. I don't even want to mention how he died on this site, it's just that disturbing.

    So sad to hear that there is a family out there that lost a loved one because they were being completely ********.

    Damn, I was just about to post this. As an avid roller coaster fan, its quite scary to think about. Not me getting decapitated, as I'd never enter an area like that, but me being on the ride at the time that something like that might happen.

    I'm on vacation in Washington DC and we are driving back to DC from kings dominion (its a really big amusement park in doswell,Virginia) I had a great time. Too bad to hear about this kid. Anyway the park had 14 roller coasters. It makes adventureland look like a kiddy place

    You gotta go to Cedar Point. That is all.

    Although it does ruin Adventureland for you in the future.

    Cedar Point makes Adventureland look like the brother of Arnold's Park.

    Going 0 to 120 mph in under 4 seconds then straight up in the air 420 feet and then straight back down is absolutely awesome.

    No, Cedar Point actually makes Adventureland look like a playground.

    But too bad that kid died, I definitely feel sympathy for his family, but honestly, the kid was apparently lacking common sense

    Re: Boy Killed at Six Flags (Atlanta)

    Kings Dominion made Adventureland look like a traveling carnival 15 years ago. It is my understanding they've added a lot since then...

    I really need to get back over there sometime...



    As for the kid - it's sad but atleast he's now eligible for a Darwin award...
    (Award that goes to those who do their part to further the human race by removing themselves from the gene pool...)


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    That's what I was thinking. I can't imagine sitting on that ride for a minute or so after a kid got hit in the head right in front of me.

    How does 420 ft high and 120 mph ride all done in 10 seconds sound?
