A roller coaster in Fuji-Q Highland, Japan has been closed down after four people have been severely injured riding it. For the past couple of months the police have been trying to investigate whether the ride caused the injuries or not. 

The roller coaster in Japan has been shut down after four people have reported being injured and severely hurt while riding this ride. That caused it to be shut down and investigated to see if these people were actually injured from the ride. The four statements were received from December 2020 – August 2021 and the victims were both men and women in the 30-50 age range. 

All had significant injuries, including a cervical fracture and a thoracic spine fracture; these injuries can require up to three months in the hospital. The coaster is 4,080 feet of track, with the top of its loop being 49 meters above the ground and reaching 112 miles per hour. There is currently no reopening date for the Dodon-pa roller coaster. 

Japanese officers said, “Currently, the causal relationship between injuries and amusement machines has not yet been confirmed”. Many Japanese citizens who were interviewed  think that they are faking it and just want to get some money out of the situation, The officers said, “”We would like to offer our heartfelt sympathy and apologize for the inconvenience we caused to the related parties”.
