Mass Hysteria

Amusement Parks-

There's nothing amusing about amusement parks, they are more like abusing parks. People go there to get thrills but sometimes they get killed instead. It's the ultimate entertainment experience, if your idea of entertainment is doing hours of activities that make you feel the maximum level of fear before going into shock, pushing the limits of hysteria that would traumatize a six year old and give a 60 year old a heart attack, amusement parks are for you.

For thrill seekers it's all about the rides. But too often we hear news reports about deadly accidents whenever a ride breaks and kills score of riders. The park operators probably cause these disasters deliberately as a publicity stunt. Roller coasters are particularly dangerous, yet riders flirt with death because the don't have a life.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
