About The Ride In Schlitterbahn
The ride that the boy was had is the tallest ride in the Guinness book of world records and it is the holder of it for quite some time now. But to a bit of relief, that ride will be demolished now. The people who have ridden it had revealed that the safety was already not top-notch as at such heights the nylon shoulder straps used to come off during rides.
Safety consultants said that a more solid restraint system needed to be fitted in the body for a better ride should have been applied similar to that of roller coaster. The parks operations manager is now facing charges of involuntary manslaughter.
