Six Flags Great Adventure rollercoaster malfunctions, many hospitalized

Many people got hurt after riding Bull on the rollercoaster Six Flags Great Adventure,

On Thursday evening, several reports emerged regarding injuries on a rollercoaster in New Jersey. According to the spokesperson of the police department, the incident took place at around 7.30 pm.

The spokesman says most injuries were minor, with several people being taken to hospital for “bumps and bruises”.

Audio from Broadcastify showed that some riders received medical help for back and neck pain. However, many of them refused to make the gesture.

In 2021, the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs closed the ride down for inspection after a partial derailment. Thankfully no one was injured in that incident.

El Toro is a wooden rollercoaster that opened in 2006 at Great Adventures. The ride became the highlight of a Mexican-themed section at a New Jersey amusement park.

The ride is considered one of the top-rated wooden coasters in the United States, with a 76-angle drop, a maximum speed of 70 miles per hour, and an altitude of 181 meters. El Toro has the second highest drop height of a wooden roller coaster in the country, trailing Six Flags Great America’s Goliath at 176 feet.
