Popular Six Flags ride shut down

San Francisco Chronicle (article)

A popular ride at Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo remains closed today as park officials and state regulators try to determine why it left a 7-old-girl feeling nauseated and numb.

Investigators with Cal OSHA spent Monday testing and inspecting the park's Hammerhead Shark ride, which swings like a pendulum before sending riders on a 360-degree whirl, after shutting it down first thing Sunday morning.

I doubt it was the ride, my money is on dehydration. But if you want to make some money, it looks like there might be high demand for the park 'Pillowland' pretty soon.
