As a kid, I remember all the urban legend horror stories shared on bus rides to Six Flags Amusement Park in New Jersey. One tale that sticks out is of a woman’s scalp being ripped off as it got tangled on the ride that just plummets straight down. I was never sure if these gory stories were real or not. While not nearly as horrifying, apparently some people do experience terrible mishaps on rides.
