14-year-old Girl Dies on Danish Roller Coaster

Recommended Posts




A 14-year-old girl died Thursday at a popular amusement park in northern Denmark, police said, reportedly when the rear part of a roller-coaster ride came off the rails.

A 13 year-old boy suffered injuries to one hand, police said.

Henrik Ragborg Olsen, manager of the Tivoli Friheden amusement park in Aarhus, Denmark's second-largest city, told local newspaper Aarhus Stiftstidende that “the rear two seats” of the Cobraen roller-coaster were hanging "under the wagon train.”

The article says the coaster is 82 feet tall and has a top speed of 44mph. RCDB on the other hand says it's about 69 feet tall with a top speed of about 40mph: https://rcdb.com/4021.htm

There is a picture of the train with the last car hanging in some news articles.  It appears that one of the two wheel assemblies has completely separated from the train.

This is not the first time this coaster has derailed.  The first time was soon after it opened and it was found that the manufacturer used low quality bolts.  At that time someone had to have a leg amputated, this is the first death as far as I know.
