Daytona Beach Roller Coaster Derails

Recommended Posts

Wow- my sister sent me a message about this on Facebook, and it's a bit disturbing. A roller coaster at the Daytona Beach Boardwalk derailed earlier today, and while no deaths have been reported, it is claimed in the article a few people did fall 30 feet or so. Around 10 others had to be rescued by the local fire department. Hopefully, no one has died or been seriously injured as a result of this accident, though falling 30 feet probably guarantees at least injuries.

I looked on RCDB, and I think this is the coaster which had the accident (looked up coasters in Daytona Beach). It is a Pinfari Zyklon, and while it opened at this Boardwalk in 2013, it was originally built in the 1970's and has been relocated a LOT. It's one of 2 coasters at the small boardwalk, and its the bigger of the two.
