Ever wonder how safe a roller coaster is before you get on it? At Expoland in Japan, a teen was klled and others injured on a roller coaster. Investigators said an axle broke. It had not been inpsected prior to the new season beginning at the amusement park. Hopefully, this incident will spur amusement parks such as Six Flags to do the kind of thorough inspections and planned maintenance to insure the safety of their riders. These are avoidable accidents. For a summary of all injuries and deaths on amusement rides go to this very comprehensive site.
