Some people are adrenaline junkies and there is no better way to get that adrenaline flowing than a terrifying roller coaster ride at an amusement park. Every year millions of people flock to different amusement parks all around the world thrill seeking and trying to find that perfect ride! People are willing to wait on lines for hours under the hot sun just to take a 3 minute ride on an extreme and scary roller coaster that will make all the waiting totally worth while!

Sometimes rides can be designed to be so scary that they can actually be quite dangerous. In today’s story this is exactly what we will be covering. You’ve probably read about rollercoasters coming to a complete halt on the loop de loop while innocent passengers are suspended upside down for minutes and even sometimes for hours. Or maybe the freak stories where the carts fly off the track due to some type of fault in the tracks design or it is just run down!

These stories are enough for me to stay clear of any ride that could potentially put me in this precarious position. However thrill seekers from all around the world don’t seem the least bit worried when they hear about these malfunctioning rides and continue seeking out the most terrifying and scary rides they can find!

Many of these massive rides can take years to build from start to finish. First the blue print, then figuring out the physics, then somehow coming up with the money to build it, then the actual building process. Sometimes these epic rides can cost millions and millions of dollars to build, so after all that money and time is put into making the perfect ride for thrill seekers/adrenaline junkies it better not malfunction and it should run smoothly 100 percent of the time!

Many roller coasters actually have a certain life span regardless of if they malfunction or not. There are only so many times the carts and rails can handle the massive speeds, twists turns and weight of the passengers. Sometimes these rides are just shut down because they are too old, the nuts and bolts are just too worn down, and the amount of money to renovate the ride just doesn’t make financial sense. For the life a roller coaster this is probably the best way for it to end its career. No freak accidents, no fatalities, just worn out to the point of no return.

Sadly, this is not always the case with many of these wild rides. Sometimes these roller coasters will run perfectly for years until suddenly one day, a freak accident will occur whether, passengers get stuck upside-down for hours or even worse they fly off the rails at high speeds injuring and sometimes even leading to multiple fatalities.

The following video will cover the top ten roller coasters that have been shut down and banned due to being way too risky and dangerous! You have probably taken a ride on some of these intense rides before and maybe surprised to hear they have been shut down for good. So consider yourself lucky for still being here being able to read today’s article!

She Has To Wear Wires On Her Body Everyday Or Else She Will Die Because She Drank THIS Popular Drink!

Dion Parrot, an 18-year-old from Kettering, England is forced to wear a heart monitor at all times, because she spent her “childhood drinking energy drinks.”  According to her mother, Dion’s “heart rate drops dangerously low” as a result of damage done from caffeine toxicity.

The average amount of caffeine found in energy drinks is 250 mgs, which is the equivalent of four shots of espresso!  No one would ever dream of allowing their child to drink that, yet many parents have been unaware of the dangers inherent to energy drinks.

Dion is forced to wear a heart monitor, as she shared in a photo on January 14th, to warn others about the dangers of energy drink consumption at a young age.  She did so in order to lose weight, and ended up causing irreparable damage to her heart.

The following video that you are about to watch below discusses these dangers; the high dose of caffeine in these drinks can cause a dangerous rise in blood pressure, heart palpitations, severe anxiety, heart damage and in some cases, death due to heart damage.

Mom Was Filling Up The Pool When Her Baby Got Splashed and Started Crying. The Reason Is Scary!

Summer officially starts on June 20th but much of the country has already experienced extremely high temperatures, especially in the Southwest region which is currently in the midst of a heat wave. Cities all across America will soon all be under the heat of a long summer,

When the thermostat is soaring people turn to all sorts of different things to beat the heat. They stay indoors and out of the sun, crank the air conditioning, drink lots and stay hydrated, and play in the water. Nothing cools you down faster like jumping in a pool can and floating around in the refreshing water is just about the most relaxing thing you can do on a super-hot day.

Residents in and around Phoenix, Arizona, aka the hottest city in America, know the simple joys a dip in the pool can bring. About a week ago Dominique Woodger, a mother who lives in San Tan Valley, Arizona, decided to set up a small kiddie pool for her 9 month old baby boy.

It was extremely hot outside and she thought her son would enjoy a nice cooling dip. She took him outside with her, grabbed the garden hose, and started to fill the pool up when she heard her son crying.

She told the local news station KNXV that at first “I thought he was crying because he was mad. He hates when he gets sprayed in the face.” However, after checking on her baby to see what was the matter she was shocked to find that his tiny body was covered with red, blistering skin. Realizing the seriousness of the situation she rushed him to the hospital where she later found out he’d suffered second-degree burns on over 30% of his body.

The water from the garden hose that Dominique accidentally sprayed on her son was what caused his burns. When a hose sits in the sun and the temperature is 115 degrees outside, close to what it was on the day Woodger’s son was injured, the water inside of it can reach temperatures as high as 150 degrees.

According to Phoenix Fire Department Captain Larry Subveri, it takes only about 10 seconds of exposure to waters at that temperature for a person to develop second-degree burns, and for a young infant, even less time.

Woodger is speaking out about what happened to her son in order to warn others about the hidden risk and to urge parents to be extra careful when turning the water on outside in the heat. Water trapped inside the hose can easily become super-heated and most people don’t stop to think about this, or even realize it, before it’s too late.

Test the water temperature first before letting any young children near it, and please pass this warning along to help spread the word. Stay safe!

Although most people are aware of the danger, they somehow believe that they are the ones who have the unique  capability of successfully driving while texting without it resulting in disastrous consequences.  Our phones, and social media have become an addiction that drives this need we have to constantly be in contact, even if it endangers ourselves and others.  So what is the answer to curbing this terrible behavior?

Although older drivers commit this dangerous behavior, it has been found that a higher percentage of younger drivers text and drive, believing themselves invincible to the consequences.  This video sets up a scenario in which new drivers taking their driver’s test, are told that in order to pass they must text while driving.  There is nothing more powerful than experiencing a dangerous situation firsthand.

Simply telling people about the dangers of texting and driving doesn’t seem to make the difference that the actual out-of-control experience drives home.  Feeling the consequences is crucial to ending the hazards of texting and driving.  Share this important video and let us know what you think.

Do You Or Anyone You Know Put Family Stickers On Their Vehicle? If You Do Take Them Off Immediately!

Many of us have become aware, that with the fun of sharing our lives on social media, come inherent dangers of exposing too much information.  Many people have made their Facebook pages private, but sharing photos and location “check-ins” on other forms of social media can leave us vulnerable to dangers from strangers with bad intentions.

There is a new trend of putting really cute decals on rear car windows, showing off our family members, their hobbies, our pets, and our kid’s achievements.

Seems harmless enough, but as people go online to customize their depiction of their family for their car, they are sometimes offered name decals, school names and various other details which they exhibit.  Getting carried away with your family pride in this way, offers information that predators are just waiting to get their hands on.

As you will hear in the video you are about to watch below, police have begun issuing warnings about these seemingly fun and innocent stickers.  Depending on the details displayed, you may be giving burglars or child predators (particularly when you have a sticker saying proud parent of..with the name of their school), information that has the potential to put your family at great risk.

While you may be wary of guarding your privacy on social media, you could be undoing it with bumper stickers and family decals.  You would be amazed at how much information can be put together that can make your family a target.

Such figures as showing a dad in the military, can signal a mom at home alone with kids.  Showing their kids in their favorite extracurricular activity can indicate when your home is likely to be empty, or where and when your child goes to practice.  For further information that will help you to be more aware of information you may be innocently giving away, watch the footage below.
