    This is bad. And it happened in Disney World. Gosh. I feel really sorry for the parents ... imagine bringing your kid to one of the best theme parks available and this happens. Poor kid.

    The little kid must have been a little Iron Man to not be scared of a ride like that.

    I know I would.

    They should close the ride if a healthy four year old goes on it and dies just like that.

    I think the parent's to blame for bringing her kid on a ride like that. That's not very good parenting. Especially since it has so many warning signs. She knew the risks and she still decided to endangering her kid. Shows how ignorant some people are.

    Poor kid.

    But still, if a ride has the potential to kill a four year old just like that then what the hell is it doing at Disneyland?

    Alright, as an older brother of a 10 year old and a 7 year old, and also being a bigtime adrenaline junkie, here's my thoughts:

    2 g's isn't that extreme of a force. Some rollercoasters and thrill rides routinely hit 4 g's. And the g forces in a car crash can go well over 10 g's. G forces aren't too dangerous to the human body as long as they are only experienced for short periods of time. Taking a 4 year old kid on a ride that doubles the force of gravity on a pretty constant basis isn't the brightest idea. I don't take my younger siblings on most of the rides I go on when I'm at an amusement park.

    I see people posting that the kid was healthy, we don't know that for sure. He might have had some kind of heart problem that his parents never knew about. Maybe he was tall enough, but taking a 4 year old on that kind of ride isn't a good idea in general. I'd put the blame on the parents on this one.

    whether the ride was safe or not, and whether the boy was ill or not, if someone dies on a ride the ride should be permently closed, thats all there is to it, disney are possibly riskin the lives of others to make money

    The people are well aware of the risks of the rides. It's not like Disney is concealing that someone could get hurt. Permanently closed over afreak accident? I think not.
