Boy Dies After Riding Rock 'n' Roller Coaster

A 12-year-old boy died today after riding Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney-MGM Studios. Officials said, the boy was declared dead in route to Celebration Hospital after the 11:30 a.m. incident. His name has not been released. Disney World officials said they closed the attraction "pending an investigation," but added that an "initial review of the attraction shows the ride was operating normally". The indoor coaster opened in 1999 and takes guests through a make-believe night in a 24-passenger stretch limo. The ride climbs to 85 feet and goes by Hollywood landmarks on its way through five inversions.
