I don’t think Walt Disney saw this one coming. 14-year-old girl at a Six Flags theme park in Lake George, NY was taking a tour around the grounds on the gondola. No one is quite sure how she got into this predicament, but it certainly appears as though park staff did not have a plan in place for situation like this. This video picks up with the girl dangling, but still stuck in the gondola. Very quickly she drops 25 feet into a crowd of people who were there to catch her. She was taken to hospital, with no serious injuries.
On the theme of parks, The first map of Disneyland sold at auction in for $708,000. It was the map used by Walt Disney to secure funding for the creation of what became the blueprint for every other theme park in the world.
