Have you ever had a bad feeling while strapping yourself in for a rollercoaster ride? Well, unfortunately, these tragic and disturbing incidents prove that it’s better to listen to your gut instinct…
In 2004, Hayley Williams died of internal injuries after being pitched from her seat on the Hydro rollercoaster at Oakwood Theme Park in Wales. Her death was attributed to employee negligence because the workers had failed to perform proper safety checks prior to the ride’s departure. The amusement park was then fined £250,000 (about $288,000 USD). To recover from the bad publicity, the rollercoaster was retitled “Drenched” upon its reopening.
