The Fire Dragon rollercoaster has a minimum age of six for children accompanied by an adult, and eight for children riding on their own.



This incident comes after a woman was killed in another rollercoaster accident at a theme park in Klotten, southwest Germany, last week. The 57-year-old woman fell out of the rollercoaster as it was travelling at speed and died from her injuries.
