Six Flags Horror

Yesterday my fiancé told me about a horrific accident at a Six Flags where a girl lost her feet on a ride. He also told me it was at Six Flags Great Adventure in southern New Jersey, which it is was not. The incident took place at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. Thinking it was the NJ location, though, I automatically assumed the ride would be the same one reported to have “ripped a girl’s hair out” when I was younger. I believe it was called Free Fall.

I’m guessing the hair story is a suburban legend, did it make the rounds in Philadelphia as well? Does anyone out there know if this was even remotely true? Regardless, I found myself in line for Free Fall one year, and chickened out at the last minute. It was completely irrational, I just couldn’t do it. I like my hair in my head.

    This site, ‘Snopes’, says the tale about the girl losing her hair is true but it happened not at six-flags or Cedar Point but at in indoor amusement area in Mass.
