Theme park rides have a way of spiking our adrenaline levels and tricking our bodies and brains into thinking we are in extreme danger. Unfortunately, for these rides, we are actually in danger.
Action Park, aka “Accident Park” was known as one of the most dangerous waterparks ever. It consisted of the Cannonball Loop, the Wave Pool, Alpine Slide and the deadly Kayak Experience.
Some of the rides on this list are commonly found in carnivals and fairs, while others are in theme parks.
According to BUSTLE, “oversight organizations like the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System does not track deaths, though data from 2013 suggests as many as 4,400 children sustain injuries on amusement park rides per year.”
You may want to think twice about riding on these awe-inspiring, adrenaline pumping, scary and dangerous amusement park rides.
