we are supposed to go today to a theme park near here the area for it is just 12 degrees outside. after having -6 this past few days today was a great day to go around. but unfortunately the theme park was close. and our guide was there talking with someone at the park. after the little chit chat he explained to us that someone died at a roller coaster ride at tokyo dome so all theme parks are closed for check. now thats scary. he said the person died was a 35 years old father. i pity for the kid/s. he fell down from his seat and the roller coaster ran over him. yaiks. so do you still trust this theme park rides after you hear news like this one.

i am so sorry for that person and really feel very bad for the kid. i cant imagine the situation in their family now. i am speech less. why is this happening? i dont know much about the parks. but i have been once to wonder land. there must be more security about all these. this must be banded.

i dont know also much about theme park specially that i am just working here in a foreign land. theme parks back home... well i dont trust any rides back home for there are more accident like this. i truly felt sad too, i am a father and i know if this would happen to me my son will be affected so much. i felt sorry for the children too this might be very traumatic for them that they will remember for the rest oftheir lives. thanks a lot for the response.

That's really scary. I love roller coasters so to think that something like that could happen really worries me. Did his restraints malfunction? I know at most theme parks I go to, they have people there to check your restraints and buckles to ensure they will keep you in the seat.

hi there, thanks for responding at once. this is the only news i found online about it. http://www.themeparkinsider.com/accidents/list_unverified.cfm. since i am a foreigner here at japan, japanese people dont talk about it to tourist for it will not be a good news to go around. so i really dont know the news fully. it is really scary to know that there are accidents like this. i dont ride roller coaster but still it is not a good news for people who loves to go to theme parks. thanks a lot for the response
