4 killed on river rapids ride in Australian theme park

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

Somehow the raft ended up on it's side while on the conveyor belt and four adults were killed. Busch Gardens Tampa closed a similar ride today out of caution.

Given most theme parks have one of these rides you have to wonder if most are closed now.

Awful situation. I feel bad for the families.

As far as similar rides being closed, with it being October, most of them are already closed for the season. Warmer climates would still be operating theirs otherwise such as BGT.
