My thoughts and prayers to everyone involved!  Makes me very thankful for all the amazing mechanics and maintenance personnel that we have at Kings Island

What is up with this rides breaking like crazy this year? I understand they are in other countries who may not care for or inspect rides like we do here but wow. This is just insane. Prayers for all involved!

^ this link is to a video that shows a pic of the aftermath. You can see how rusted  the seats and handles were......Not good for that park at all.

Lack of maintenance and no laws to ensure safety inspections are mostly to blame. I wouldn’t ride overseas for this reason.

A few times I've been on Delirium and thought wow there's not much to save yourself if that happened. Scary to see it can actually occur.

I wouldn't ride a bus in India, let alone an amusement ride.

You are fine riding coasters in most Western European countries, I'd say.

I wouldn't trust most undeveloped or developing countries. Stick with Canada / USA / UK / Spain / Australia / maybe China (it seems they have a very wide variety of theme parks, from totally safe and maintained to sketchy and dangerous).
