So, Camden Park.
Today was a fairly slow day, so I got sent home early. Usually, they’ll send the foreign kids home because this is West Virginia and the people in charge know that most West Virginians would rather deal with a good ol’ American than a few Asians or Serbs or Georgians or what have you. But today, I think, the bus wasn’t running, so they couldn’t go home when they were sending people home, so I was sent home early.
I got sent home at eight. Normally on Saturdays, the park is open until around ten thirty. At nine thirty, The Spider collapsed.
The park was completely closed within half an hour, and three people went to the hospital. What happened was the ride was going, and all of a sudden, one of the legs just said “fuck you” and fell, skidding the seat thing along the ground until the ride was stopped.
Man, of all the days to be sent home early. I could see the ride from where I was today, too.
