Incidents

  • On January 10 a car decoupled from the train on Boomerang at Fantasilandia. While there was no collision, the train was stopped abruptly by the emergency brakes causing minor injuries to riders. After the incident, the ride was refurbished and the train replaced.
  • On June 2, 2015 a full train collided with a stalled empty train on the Smiler. Eleven people required medical treatment and two had to have partial leg amputations.
