When visiting a theme park, you expect your family to be safe. After all, you are spending hundreds of dollars for a day, week, or more of entertainment. Safety is the least of what you deserve when going on vacation. However, even this basic need is sometimes not met.

This accident is eerily similar to another accident that occurred in Wisconsin.
