Wild Ride- 9\20\12

Amusement Ride Gone Haywire

I thought that this was a bit of a crazy story. This is defiantly news worthy since it involves lots of people. Not to mention, it isn’t often (fortunately) that amusement rides go haywire like that.

Another thing I liked about the article was the lead. The journalist of course didn’t have to try too hard to get people to read. However, the lead was short and to the point. It kept people, including myself, intrigued enough to want to know more.

After the main points, I liked that it became very informative; which is how journalism is suppose to work, with the inverted pyramid. The fact they had a picture was also nice, too. This gives people an idea of the dangers and the extremities of the malfunction.

    Just reminds me why I hate amusement park rides. Why would anyone pay to have this done to them? Good discussion.

    Something I have noticed over the years: Spell check does not know how to spell the word definitely. It always comes out as defiantly.
