In 1995, a 24-year-old woman's legs were mangled, and 13 other people were injured, on the aptly named Hell Hole ride, "a large cylinder that spins so fast it pins people to its walls while the floor drops," the Associated Press explained
The accident "happened when one of several steel bands encircling the cylinder snapped, ripping open the barrel, officials said. Most of the injuries occurred when people tumbled to the floor after an operator hit the emergency stop button." Loose beams shattered the woman's leg in several places.
