    There was an article in the paper about it a couple of days ago - talking about how rides are now almost getting too fast for the body to cope. Like the little boy who died at Walt Disney World riding the spinning cups
    the spinning cups??

    i think you mean mission space. Which is a simulator that re-enacts a shuttle take off. It is very powerful and has high g forces.

    Really? :eek:
    Do you have to sign something saying that it's not their responsiblility if you die? As in bungee jumping? (I heard that you need to sign something like that before you bungee jump...?!?! :confused: )

    That's terrible. There should be a minimum age for that ride.

    I hope Disney get sued to hell and back.

    If I was with some other people, then yeah, definitely. For macho reasons.

    If I was on my own, and it was my choice whether to go or not...no chance mate.

    They cannot have that happen to them. The fact the kid met the minimum requirements means that he was fine to go on the ride. Meaning that there is not actually anything disney could get sued for. They boy died at hospital.

    Also, mission space does not have a contract that you need to sign before riding.
    But it is disney most dangerous ride yet. since it has opened, more than 11 people have needed to go to hospital 9 of them because they fainted, 1 had a heart attack, and the other 1 did (the boy)
