Six Flags Great Adventure Theme Park Roller Coaster Accident Injures Several Riders
According to an online news report published on app.com, emergency medical service teams were dispatched to Six Flags Great Adventure due to a severe roller coaster accident.*
The El Toro roller coaster accident injured several park patrons at the theme park last Thursday night. According to authorities, when the El Toro roller coaster ride completed its usual run, several riders complained of severe back pain. Five of those riders were transported to a medical facility for examinations. The El Toro roller coaster was closed for inspection.
According to Gabriel Darretta, a Six Flags spokesperson, everyone exited the ride after the incident and without assistance. Darretta said that those five riders were treated and released.
The El Toro roller coaster ride is nineteen stories high and includes a drop 76-degree angle drop of 176 feet. The ride was closed down earlier this year due to a partial derailment that happened last summer. The Department of Community Affairs closed down the wooden roller coaster following the derailment accident on June 29, 2021. The partial derailment happened when the rear-up wheel moved on top of the rail. No park visitors were harmed in that incident.
