There are no guarantees in life except death and taxes. And those can come at unexpected times. Even with all of the safety precautions in place and meticulously checked over time and again, there is no guarantee that your going to make it off that fast-and-furious rollercoaster alive. Theme parks are places where thrill-seekers go to get the ride of their lives; they want to be thrown around at high speeds, taking them to the very edge of safety.
