BATON ROUGE, LA – A woman riding the”Xtreme” roller coaster at the Dixie Landin’ Amusement Park died Sunday when she was ejected from the ride. Witnesses say 21-year-old Lindsay Zeno, who was at the park with friends, was struggling with her shoulder harness before falling 30 feet to the ground. “Her friends say that when they turned around and looked they didn’t see her but then probably she was on the ground,” said Zeno’s grandmother. She would die an hour later after being rushed to the hospital. The Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal is investigating and at this point have found nothing wrong with the ride but State Fire Marshal Butch Browning said the investigation will take some time. Meanwhile, Zeno’s family has already hired an attorney. The park was open for business Monday, but not the roller coaster. You know, this is a true nightmare of mine. I have no fear of roller coasters, in fact I love them to death. But I have had some kickass nightmares involving roller coasters and failed restraints that have startled me awake.

    Holy crap, that's horrifying. I haven't been ti a theme park in a couple of years but don't they normally have folks walk by before the ride takes off to make sure you're secured?
    That poor girl.

  • Parrot Toes (kathybird)

    Well, that definitely sucks. I'd still go on it though (after thorough inspections and tests of course). I <3 rollercoasters so much that that would be the perfect death for me, lol. Mind you, I would prefer a heart attack of sheer excitement while being on the most bad ass coaster out there!

  • Parrot Toes (kathybird)

    They are supposed to at most parks. I was watching this guy the other day at a local attraction here that walked around the ride only but didn't try any of the clips to be sure that they were actually secured. I just realized this now. I mean I noticed it then and thought to myself that that's why I always check my kids things before I do mine up. But reading your comment, I should have gone to customer service to report that. Shit, I wasn't thinking that day…..I think I was in a hurry for something. Now I feel bad. :(

  • Choloharvey

    can you imagine her horror and panic right before she fell? God bless her. You never know when you will meet your maker.

  • darsa

    Wow, the poor girl, I can't imagine, really. :( I saw that old episode of CSI where the rollercoaster cars came right off the track and crashed into the ground killing everyone; the thought of it just horrifies me.
    Y'know… not trying to snipe or anything, but if that's her picture up there she looks like kind of a big girl; I wonder if the restraints weren't able to fit her properly. I know that back before I had lost 65 lbs, I went to Six Flags and **just barely** fit into the Batman ride. =/ They had a test seat tho, you could check while in line to see if you fit…

    This story brings back childhood nightmares. I used to love roller coasters and would ride any chance I got. Last time I rode one at the state fair, which was many years ago, there were no restraints, just a bar that went above your lap. I was probably no more than 4 foot tall at the time, and when the coaster went around a corner, I took off sliding across the seat. Thank goodness I was with an adult and if he hadn’t grabbed me I’m sure I’d have went flying out of that seat. I’ll go on any other ride and I still enjoy the thrill rides, but you’ll never get me on a roller coaster again.

  • Dneil

    I am just…. at a loss for words? How the fuck could this happen? This is awful. :( I guess I have always felt that these things don't happen; that coasters are safe. I guess I will be re-thinking the rides I choose. This is the amusement parks fault, in my opinion. Something had to have been wrong. With every rider, they are responsible to be sure each person is secure in their seat. Something failed…. otherwise she wouldn't be dead. :( Rest in Peace….

    That is extremely terrible. It is sounding like the park employees were not taking the time to check the passengers restraint systems. I just went to Cedar Point on saturday and I know I always check the restraints myself but it isn't the passengers responsibility to do that, it is the park employees' job to check. I hope the park does the right thing and does a full-on investigation into the employees working the ride.

  • AMGallagher

    It looks like someone didn't follow through on their job properly! This has ALWAYS been a fear of mine! When I was younger I would go on almost anything. Now at my old age of 35, there is no way that I would even get on a ferris wheel let alone a rollercoaster! I get nervous on bridges! Poor girl, such a shame.

  • Wildheart

    I was thinking that very thing Darsa. I know there were times in the past where I just barely squeezed in on a ride and wondered “Holy shit is this gonna hold me in?!?” That weight limit isn't for discrimination folks….it's for safety!

    btw congrats on the 65 lbs! :)

    Just found out that this article is the the 1500th article I have written for this site and I just keep getting better looking. CRAZY!

    this is why i don't ride coasters.

  • HeavenlyDementia

    Oh Morbid, how true it is. haha

  • darsa

    :D Thank you! <3

  • Takoma620

    and you can say it's the park employee's responsiblity to check yr restrains all day long. But yo, STRAIGHT UP if you are willing to trust your LIFE to someone making minimum wage when you can do it yourself in 1.5 seconds, then you are a straight up fool.

  • melb1970

    Last ride I went on was the Pirate ship ride at the county fair- ya know the one giant ship swings way up in the air with just a bar across your lap. I almost had a stroke no more for me

  • melb1970

    Phenomenal isn't it- how many folks do ya know are blessed with your ability and your good looks- SHAZAAM

  • Parrot Toes (kathybird)

    I just want to say a big fucking Thank You to you Morbid for this story. I just got home from the amusement park after spending the day going from ride to ride all day. My favourite ride, one of the world's best rollercoasters, was still fun and awesome all 8 times I went on it but I was still worried about the restraints. Every ride my kids and I went on, I was obsessed with checking the restraints. Damnit……so much for a relaxing roller coaster ride…..lol.

  • Parrot Toes (kathybird)

    It's miraculous! Hallelujah!

  • DD_Twisted

    You know, I actually had one of these malfunctions when I was younger, and much thinner.

    I believe I was 18 at the time, and we went to Six Flags Magic Mountain. Well, we decided to get on the Batman ride (a hanging coaster with over-the-shoulder restraints that theoretically lock into place and have a restraint buckle at the bottom for extra assurance). So, I get in, pull the restraint down, and buckle it in. The operator starts the ride, without doing the usual check on the restraints for security.

    Well, as we're headed up the first hill, my uncle notices that my buckle looks strange. He reaches over to adjust it, and the damn thing comes open, and the restraint rises up. Luckily, I had enough time to pull it back down and get it buckled properly before the first loop at the bottom of the hill.

    As sick as it sounds, that was the most exciting and fun time I've had on a roller coaster. Not that I wish to repeat it.

  • DD_Twisted

    Glad you checked. As I mentioned lower, I'm one of those who actually needed that extra check when I was younger, and without it bad things could have happened.

  • kes

    rest peaceful meek… I CANT BELIEVE THAT U ARE GONE… WE GREW UP 2GETHER PLAYED IN THE SAME CHURCH 2GETHER… DANCE IN THE SAME SKOL TOGETHER… WENT TO SKOL TOGETHER WORK IN THE SAME PLACE TOGETHER…. REST PEACEFUL

  • AnneMarie

    Another reason for me not to like roller coasters… Ugh!! May this woman rest in peace.

    ARGH.

    With the age of computers, they should build in failsafes to detect crap like this before the ride is put in motion. If someone's buckle isn't buckled, no one's going anywhere.

  • savanuhh

    You know… I have looked up rollercoaster deaths before and could never find any. I love rollercoasters but some of my friends are afraid to ride them bc they think they will die. I always told them nobody has died on a rollercoaster, but i guess i just got proved wrong. And the guy who is scared of bridges.. me too! Especially when they are all shaky. My aunt freaked out going on this one bridge to watch fireworks, i think it was part of a highway or something, she said it was wobbly and she didn’t feel safe. The very next day, I kid you not, the bridge collapsed with tons of people on it and alot of them died :( You just never know…

    LOL, your friends sound daft…you could point out that they should be more worried about getting in a car and driving down the road. Statistically speaking.
